[Overseas Features] Part 2.4 – Metalcore Rising Stars
<海外報導特集> 第2.4章:Metalcore 的明日之星

We Came As Roman + Bring Me The Horizon

…Having signed to RCA and Epitaph Records (for US distribution), you know Bring Me The Horizon has the potential to be the spokesmen of this generation. No matter if you agree or not, the teenagers do feel related to the stories in the songs. The giant projection screen definitely helps to convey their vision of unleashing the dark, cosmic mystery. Superimposition of fire, space, monument and gothic architecture images with the band is extremely stunning to watch in live, especially under the star light in the wild…

…… 單憑 BMTH 手上與 RCA 和 Epitaph 唱片公司 (作美國獨家經銷) 的合約,你就知道他們有潛質成為這一代年青人的代言人。不管你同意與否,少年樂迷確實能在他們的歌曲中找到同感。樂團借助巨大的投影屏幕傳達他們釋放宇宙和末世潛藏力量的概念。火炙、太空、遺跡和哥德式建築圖像與各成員互相重疊,尤其在互外的星空下,看起上來非常振撼……

[Overseas Features] Part 3: British Invasion // Kasabian – Live in New York City
<海外報導特集> 第三章: Kasabian 的英倫入侵 — Live in NYC

Hailing from Leicester, England, Kasabian quickly run to the top of the British rock scene in 10 years. Their sound has changed over the years from sharp indie rock to recent edgy electronic rock; however, the britpop sensitivity is still deeply carved in their bones. The band has covered all the essential hits in the 70-minute concert — first album’s Club Foot and L.S.F., West Ryder’s massive hit Fire and Underdog, latest release 48:13’s Eez-eh, etc. There’s no less known songs, only the celebrated ones!

來自英國 Leicester 的 Kasabian 在10年內迅速攀登至英倫搖滾樂壇頂峰。雖然他們的聲音漸漸由尖銳獨立搖滾轉變為近期的前衛電子搖滾;但你仍可在歌曲中找到深深刻在骨子裏的英倫搖滾觸覺。樂隊在演唱會中涵蓋了所有必聽之作:首張專輯內的 Club Foot 和 L.S.F.、West Ryder 的代表作 Fire 和 Underdog、最新發布專輯 48:13 內的 Eez-eh 等。70分鐘的表演中完全沒有二線選曲,只有眾人熟悉的作品!
