The location: appealing ambiance with a hall, billiard room, bar and an urban beer garden with BBQ kitchen. Outside, there were fresh burgers and drinks. The hall has good acoustics and serves exactly the audience about 200 +/- people (estimate), which are always less in Berlin. So I learned from the organizers dads this concert will be the last. Because the rest inclined residents of the communities so his beloved dead silence, as so often in the metropolis prevailed here. Pity!
The Concert: The Friends of Napalm Records advised me to see Alunah. Well, already during the sound check by Brain Police, I realized that the stage lighting was not necessarily suitable photo again today. So we asked our colleagues at Lichpult but for the first title of both bands may be a little more light to cast on stage. Despite promise, the young man has probably forgotten in the excitement, well, never mind. The second gig hats then works, too bad only because Alunah made the beginning. Regardless few images are yes but then come out yet. The hall was filled and after the sound check of Brain Police then entered the Birmingham 4 of the location by the main entrance.
Fix the transporter was dispelled the instruments brought to the stage the Schlagzeugkid unfolds, wired and then soundcheck. Short break for a drink and already went off. Respect. From the tour bus to the stage. The Tour stress was Dave Day (guitar), Dan Burchmore (bass), Jake Mason (drums) and Soph Day (guitar, vocals) of Alunah not noted. And then I saw my black Doomwunder. I've seen many huge gigs, whether the Power of Metal Sabaton and Powerwolf or powerful femal fronted metal by Xandria or Arkona was, but that was what was going on here, a very different, but not bad experience for me.
There were three young musicians from the Birmingham brought everything out of your instruments which went. The perfection of your Könnes elicited bass, guitar and drums a whole which takes possession of your body. As a dark current crept through the hall of the mystic, spherical, epic and brutal came over. Nevertheless, this listening experience was very pleasant and bittersweet for me. And then you began, Soph Day presents with your multi-faceted voice and her guitar against the wobbly Doomfluß your bandmates. Time your voice is pleading, sometimes warning, sometimes like angels. Who listens closely, notes that the vocals are beyond the pull of instruments to try and work out elsewhere in this or seems to float above the band.
In short, Alunah bring the audience with the first note on the edge of the stage from, and can not get rid of the listener. So fans and band part of beautiful dark pictures will paint the four musicians on stage akusstisch. Alunah presented with your new album "Awakening the Forest" is a concept that goes deeper than the 4 anyway does the perfect Doom. The complete CD - review can be found HERE!
Conclusion: The Doomszene has a queen and if Alunah stands for Doom, then here comes the soundtrack to the "downfall". Who has the courage to immerse themselves in the Birminghamern and kidnap musical, is coming their money at a Alunahkonzert.
