美國金屬核樂團The Word Alive組成九年,他們的起跌絕對如過山車般充滿戲劇性 —— 獨立發展、頻繁陣容變動、技術超強的鼓手 Luke Holland 年前離開樂隊,但TWA最終回到軌道上繼續追逐夢想!透過不斷的巡迴演出,TWA成功打動美國國內無數歌迷,在亞洲及其他地區也建立了強大的粉絲群!他們於5月4日推出的全新專輯 Violent Noise,一如以往,旋律非常流暢,是個典型金屬核作品。而今年他們又回到香港在Clockenflap 音樂節演出!

Metalcore outfits The Word Alive are back to Hong Kong at Clockenflap Festival this year. In the past 9 years, their past is definitely a dramatic ride of roller coaster – lineup change, open recruitment for member, the departure of Luke Holland and finally back on track to chase their dreams. By incessant touring, TWA successfully impress thousands of fans in the nation and even won a huge, solid fanbase in the Asian region. The band just dropped their new album ‘Violent Noise’ on May 4. As usual, the music is composed of catchy rhythm and the classic metalcore elements that fans can quickly fall in love with.

在神秘電子前奏和紅光帶領下,充滿陽光氣色的主唱Telle Smith迅速跑到舞台邊緣,竭力叫喊歌唱。眾所周知TWA憑熱血沸騰的現場表演見稱,接下來的60分鐘將證明他們沒有浪得虛名。一首接一首帶有後硬核餘溫的電子金屬核歌曲,樂隊沒有露出半點疲憊,反而顯得更流暢自然。

The stage is shinning under the mysterious electronic intro, the sunny-looking frontman Telle Smith ran to the edge of the stage in red light and scream his lungs out. TWA is known for their energy-filled live performance and the following 60 minutes would prove they didn’t earn it for nothing. The band became more furious song after song and there was no sign of exhaustion.

其後他們選擇了 Play The Victim 和 The Hounds of Anubis 作接力,務求迅速滲透你的耳朵和內心。TWA 在現場演出中以擴大了的器樂部分洗去曲詞中的憂鬱感性;值得一提,今次有新鼓手加入陣容。

Heading down the set they chose Play The Victim and The Hounds of Anubis to quickly penetrate your ears and heart. In live concert the band washed the melancholic emotional side with relentless instrumentation. Worth to note, this is also the first time they come to Hong Kong with their new drummer since the departure of Luke Holland.

The front audience went frantic as Smith dived into the crowd. Total madness seemed to be a perfect caption for the moment. It was like one deep shot of adrenaline to stimulate their young fans’ nerves. Without big surprises, The Word Alive mark an end to the incredible show with the anthemic Life Cycles.

在尾段 Telle 突然跳入人群,立即使前排觀眾們瘋狂起,有如向已失去控制的樂迷再注射高劑量的腎上腺素一樣,將整個氣氛推到極限。一如既往,The Word Alive 以代表作 Life Cycles 把這金屬核劃上句號。

他們的香港站演出重新演繹了Linkin Park 的 Crawling ! 樂隊表演了60分鐘,歌單有新專輯 Violent Noise 內的單曲及其他較為熟悉的舊作,包括 League of Legends 主題曲 RISE!

The Word Alive covered Linkin Park’s “Crawling” at their Hong Kong stop. The band performed a 60-minute set filled with irresistible songs from their new album ‘Violent Noise’ and anthems including the League of Legends theme song “RISE”.
