"Is there much traffic in Zürich today?" i asked via sms Matthias Borer, frontman of Darkmoon. "As always" was his answer. Remembering the jam i found that day when Endstille played and the latest time i was in the Swiss city for the press screening of X-men First Class, i got already panic because i left home dangeroulsy late. Fortunately , reaching the city was quite smooth this time. Quite relaxing. But Borer words were prophetic anyway: the way back home, after the concert, has been again tortured by stop and go in queueing till highway entrance. As always. However the game was (again) worth the candle...
Vader and Krisiun together in this majestic Summer Campaign 2011
Tour touched Zürich in a show presented by "Meh Suff!" and set
the well known Swiss venue Dynamo on fire . Awesome concert to say the least. Essence and Darkmoon provided for warm up, and from the moment Resistance didnt play, the running order was postponed
fast one hour later, although all this didn't affect the door-opening time.
It was a nice day , so most people remained outside to have some refreshing drink and to have a chat. When i came in the venue,
Darkmoon was still engaged in the soundcheck. From the moment that the
stage is long but not too wide only a drumkit will be on stage: the
Vader one. Only cymbals will be changed band after band.
Brazilian Krisiun have been solid, brachial, bonecrushing, deadly and precise under the command of vocalist and bassist Alex Camargo with his quite classic 4 -string Dean Metalman ML bass. Krisiun was extremely appreciative of the crowd underling many times how much grateful the band is for the fans' support. it was extreme Death metal performed in the best blasting and brutal way possible. Krisiun opened with Combustion Inferno that was fantastic and actually the title and the attitude of this song can describe the whole concert. The inferno was unleashed also with the hunting Vengeance's Revelation sealed by its final lead guitar solo. The beautiful and rhythmed Dissident Abomination followed in the general acclamation. Hatred Inherit and Vicious Wrath were warmachines. With Vicious Wrath the crowd went nuts even more than before if to say so makes any sense. Sentenced Morning from the album Southern Storm was the gem, one of the best Death metal tracks ever. Again Alex Camargo thanked the fans and said that it was a honour to play in Switzerland. We should not forget that, during the concert, Krisiun prepared the crowd for Vader too "Are you ready for Vader?!". The last song was King of Killing. The crowd was mesmerized, the fans in the first rows couldn't wait to shake hands with their heroes. Krisiun: 3 brothers, one inferno.
The crowd chainted loud the name Vader when the stage was ready and the lights went off. A name which is a legend.I presume that the crowd seduced Vader along the concert and not only the opposite, as usual. The enthusiasm for the Polish Death Metal band around the charismatic guitarist and vocalist Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek was outstanding and involved the band more and more. The athmosphere was a constant crescendo of support and moshing with some crowdsurfing and stagediving. People stand there in a storm of headbanging since the first notes played. Everybody was grooving on the music, on Spider's guitar solos (great and generous guitarist by the way), on Peter's vocals, on the solid bass and on the eruptive drums. Vader opened straight to the point with This is The War and it was at once annihilation in aggressive style. The band tried to underline well all passages, pace changes and virtuosisms that enslave the listeners. Sothis from album "De Profundis" was another great experience. Indeed attending Sothis live at Dynamo, which isn't an enormous location, one could understand how precise the band plays and the care Vader puts on sound and on impact. After Sothis the crowd began to chant the name Vader again, a little technical problem of Peter's guitar was quickly solved and the band was ready to propel with brutal speed the song Devilizer on the "hungry" pit. Then another song off the album "Necropolis" was unchained: Rise Of The Undead, with a lot of accent on cymbals, more than in the studio version. And we went on with the beautiful suffering Shadow Fear, whose initial unmistakable loop was so well played together with all related variations of the theme, guitar shredding and slow down included. Another moment of great interest was when Vader presented a song from the new album "Welcome To The Morbid Reich" and precisely Come And See My Sacrifice. The crowd was eager for more so Vader proposed Carnal and, after having presented his band members, Peter announced Dark Age from the very first album, playing it compact with freak touch. Practically in a kind of second encore Vader performed then the cover Black Sabbath (from the band Black Sabbath of course) and finally, in a triumph of sweat, lights, smoke and headbanging comes Raining Blood, cover of Slayer. And the band came back again on the stage to thank the fans and shake hands with them."...Now i shall reign in blood!"
The whole evening was a kind of "combustion Inferno". And the game is worth the candle. As always.
