Every Time I Die - Supported by Drop Dead, Gorgeous and Scary Kids Scaring Kids
How nice to begin your week with a concert on Monday to get some energy for the coming work efforts. Tonight three metalcore bands helped us to begin the week well. Let’s get it on!
 
Scary Kids Scaring Kids was just starting their last song of the show. Some poppy punk with semi screaming vocals and some heavy metal influences was what I heard. This last element reminded me a bit of Blessed by a Broken Heart, which opened for Bring Me the Horizon a while ago. And no, the band name isn’t really representative for the live experience.
 
Did Drop Dead Gorgeous have a more representative name? According to my female companion tonight they didn't, and I of course really don’t give a shit. Oh wait, there’s supposed to be a comma in there, so it’s Drop Dead, Gorgeous. Notice the difference? What a brilliant joke! What I noticed most of all was that the singer had a very distinctive and strange clean vocal sound. Just as the singer of 36 Crazyfists has his own strange sound, which you either love or hate. I found the clean singing of the Drop Dead, Gorgeous a bit too wining and his screaming capabilities were a dime a dozen. Just as the entire screamo/metalcore of these six chaps. Next!
 
Then it was time for the only band which really offered some quality and entertainment. With so many bands in this hyped genre, bands with a longer history often have way more a sound of their own and really know how to give an impressive show. Well, I would not call the show of Every Time I Die a really impressive lifetime experience, but they offered a fun set of stirring up metalcore. The element which makes their music unique and makes it really worth to give it a listen, is the southern rock influence. This works really well, and I can’t recall any other bands which make this mix. This is perfectly performed as well, so of course the audience went nuts. According to the frontman this was different when they played in the Netherlands opening for Morbid Angel, a quite strange combination by the way. He ‘hilariously’ joked that there were 85 and half visitors that time. Well, nevermind that crap. Every Time I Die gave a fun and good show tonight and was the only band really worth the effort of travelling to Amsterdam.
