One of my goals on this tour was to see a decent metal band live. Tonight I completed this objective.
Now I’ve had the chance to see bands before but they have either been too expensive or bands I wasn’t too interested in (Hatebreed, While She Sleeps and The Skull). This time was different though. This time everything matched.
For the equivalent of £9, I got to see Skeletonwitch and Kvelertak play at Lucerna.
Skeletonwitch welcomed everyone and the crowd took a little while to warm up but a couple of songs in, the pit opened and the place got sweaty. As usual, I jumped in headfirst and had a fantastic time. If I knew the songs, I would’ve appreciated it more but it was still a good band.
After a half hour break, where the stage realigned for Kvelertak, the owl faced vocalist walked on. They played songs I knew, songs I didn’t and even a song I didn’t realise was theirs! There was a lot of stage divers and a good many elbows thrown about.
An hour and a half of moshing later, I came out of the pit broken and bruised. Truly the sign of a good night.
