[Live Review + Photography] Vader – Live in Hong Kong

… Peter’s vocal is more husky than than his old recordings yet still sounds like a killer. Within expectation, the rundown is undoubtedly smooth with their 30 years live experience. With all the notes already deeply carved into their fingertips, #Vader manage to interact with their fans more than other bands normally do. A young man brings along a Polish national flag to celebrate this classic death metal party…

…… 雖然 Peter 的現場的聲音比錄音專輯沙啞,但聽起來仍然氣勢萬分。就如預料之內,有近三十年現場經驗的 Vader 帶來的演出是無比流暢的。他們的熟練程度就像每個音符經已深深地刻進他們的指尖,使他們比其他樂隊更能分心與樂迷互動。其中一個年輕觀眾帶來了波蘭國旗,以慶祝這個經典死亡派對……

[NEW MUSIC] What a gothic storm! Black Blizzard by Die So Fluid

Los Angeles / London based gothic rock band Die So Fluid have released the official music video for their track “Black Blizzard” 

Die So Fluid are the modern incarnation of a ‘power trio’ of mixing metal and post-punk through their vampiric desert torch song. The band explained “Black Blizzard was inspired by the Dust Bowl tragedy of the 1930s. It’s referred to as a natural disaster but it was caused by man. Nature is wild and untamable, and my character in the video is the storm personified-bringing wrath after she has been abused and disrespected.”

洛杉磯/倫敦哥特搖滾樂隊 Die So Fluid 剛發布了 Black Blizzard 的官方音樂視頻。

Die So Fluid 的音樂風格混合了金屬、後朋克和吸血鬼題材的黑暗。他們講解 Black Blizzar 背後的故事:「歌曲靈感來自於20世紀30年代的 Dust Bowl 沙塵暴悲劇。雖然它被稱為自然災害,但事實上是人為造成的。大自然是如此野性和不容馴服的;而我在視頻的角色是將暴風雨人格化,把她遭恣意踐踏和侮辱後的憤怒表現出來。」
