Every Time I Die" title="Search for Every Time I Die">Every Time I Die is mixing Southern Rock with Metal and Hardcore and the created vibe is perfect for the summer. Summer you think on this bleak day? Well in a packed room Every Time I Die brings the heat and the crowd warms up like the earth did the past couple of years. Due to work Metalrage missed the first bands Meet the Storm and The Royal. The last one was a last minute addition for Counterparts who could not make it after the singer was diagnosed in a hospital in Berlin, Germany.
Just like on the last album ‘From Parts Unknown’ Every Time I Die starts furious tonight. As a machine they take over the stage and lots of people go nuts. Nothing can go wrong? The only minor in the beginning is the dull sound. The fury and energy somewhere stops in the middle and the five guys from Buffalo, New York are not heard in their ultimate form.
Half way during the set this is changing and with songs like ‘Wanderlust’ or ‘We’rewolf’ they not only take over the Patronaat visually but also sound wise. Every Time I Die is still the band that combines show and party with musical skills and a deadly groove. In a high tempo they let the good songs coming and the fifty minutes are over before you are aware of it.
They end the show with the piano laden new song ‘Moor’. The creepy tones combined with the always sarcastic lyrics and color of voice from Keith Buckley concludes the set in a surprising way. No encore is played because the band already said and done everything. After more than 15 years the quintet has carved a niche in heavy music and their sound is still as relevant as their breakthrough with the album ‘Hot Damn’ in 2003. We can’t wait to have ‘em back again on European soil.
