No time to mess around, after only 15 minutes everything was ready for the main act, Pat sat on the drum stool and after a few seconds Lorenzo, Colin, and Carmelo appeared on stage.
The concert started with “Funfair” from the debut album “Inflamed Rides” introduced by a masterly guitar arpeggio, leading into a very dark-atmosphere verse and a chorus that left space to a powerful middle eight where Lorenzo started to show his vocal skills.
Without any pause, the band performed “Too Numb”, opening track of the second album “Soul of an Octopus” in which Colin delights the ears to those present with a groovy bass part reminding “Stratus” from Billy Cobham, (great shot!) and “Signal Erased” from the last album “Ramagehead”. In this last tune, the crowd could appreciate Carmelo’s skills on guitar, who started the intro with a “looping” tapping riff, followed by an aggressive and “ostinato” bridge which led straight into the chorus, supported by a solid and “odd-tempo” rhythm section. This song was the first taste of the essence of this band. Lorenzo impressed the crowd, jumping from the powerful and rough singing in the chorus, to some delicate lines during the middle-eight. It was just like having Chris Cornell and Jeff Buckley in the same song.
It is now Colin’s turn, to show the muscles. Next song was “Time Corroded” starting with a descendent progression of chords on bass. That was the main theme of the whole song. What impressed about Colin was the fact that he stood for the entire concert in his elegant pose, playing so smoothly and easily, delivering a solid low end to the whole sound, accompanied by the sacred monster behind the drum, which needs no introduction. at Borderline
