Himsa - Supported by 3 Inches of Blood and Powervice
Once again 3 Inches of Blood was on my shedule. This time they were supporting Himsa and the supporting Dutch act was Powervice. I was looking forward to this night for a long time and when the time was there it was one great night!
First band this night was Powervice, Metalrage met these guys the week before and was stunned by their performance. Personally I was looking forward to their set. This time the set list was a bit shorter but nevertheless it was as brilliant show with a lot of solos and they just blew me away once again. The band got members of Judasville and they are looking for a label. Too bad they messed up by swearing at the other bands while the A&R dude of a big record label was sitting there; better luck next time!
And there they were, the band I was coming for. Pirate metal band 3 Inches of Blood entered the stage and started a set which was amazing. Too bad the vocals were mixed a bit too low but overall the sound was ok. The first time I saw these guys play on Dynamo I just had to laugh like any person who listens to this band the first time but these guys are really talented and are really bringing new elements into the huge world of metal.
The band played songs like Crazy Nights, Destroy The Orcs, Axes of Evil and the ended with their best song, Deadly Sinners. Every single note was played and the temporarily drummer they borrowed of Walls of Jericho was drumming amazingly compared to the previous one. After the band released their album they have had a lot of line up changes but right now they are in an amazing line up and I hope this line up will continue this way because it will deliver us another great album!
It doesn’t happen very often that I’m going to an show where the headlining band doesn’t ring a bell. So for me this is a nice moment for getting to known Himsa.
Himsa plays a kind of melodic hardcore if we must believe the website of the band. Luckily the band doesn’t play only hardcore but flirts a lot with thrash metal if you’d ask me.
As for the show of Himsa, it was nice to see that the band members used every inch of the stage and enjoyed playing the music on stage. The pleasure of the band reflected itself on the audience in the venue and after a few numbers there even was some kind of a circle pit going on. Overall it was a nice show of Himsa, too bad the light man gave Himsa a lot of light from the back so that the audience was looking at some shadows for quite a while.
