The band was in Athens to perform in the second day of the Athens Open Air Festival but after the cancellation of their day they decided to play an acoustic show in a small metal club in Athens. The official Greek fan club of the band was present there and it was those guys that provided the band with musical equipment to play. Four out of the five members of the band in a small corner of the club, the fifth member being the keyboard player who didnít have an instrument to join with the others. The drummer played on a tambourine or something like that. Also in the club members of Katatonia were present.
They did a short set of about 45 minutes with their instruments being very quiet due to the unplugged acoustic guitars and the absence of amplification but those 25-30 fans present there didnít have any complaint. It was a unique concert to see such a band play for so little crowd like a big company of friends. Before and after the show the band signed autographs and took pictures with us.
Concerning the show, as far as I remember, they played
songs mainly from their last record "Remedy Lane" but they
didnít forget their first album. The thing that I liked is that
although they played a very quiet gig and with acoustic guitars they
performed their heavy stuff as well. From their last album they did Ending
Theme, Undertow, This Heart Of Mine and Second Love.
They closed with Ashes from their previous album. In this gig
I also had the chance to chat with Daniel and learn that "Remedy
Lane" was actually written from a personal experience of himself
and that their new album Be will get a release date for September. But
the best thing that they said was that they will visit Greece in autumn
for 2 shows and then they mentioned the possibility for another 2 dates
a bit later for unplugged shows. I hope all goes well and they do
what they said.
