Axial Symmetry live @ Fibbers

Right, normally I wouldn’t be reviewing after shows because they involve a lot of drinking, spending quality time in smoking areas with people covered in sweat, booze and lord knows what else – plus the usual  general merriment and chaos. When you add the fact that this is a SLAYER after show – you can multiply all of the above by a hundred. Fortunately Tickets There is semi-sensible in our old age and we manage to hold things together quite well and show up when Axial Symmetry take the stage.

Axial Symmetry are a new one for us, but you can instantly see they’re out to impress. Singer Gavin Doyle commands the stage in a manner that demonstrates an obvious nod to some well know road trained heroes. He works the crowd well, hides his own excitement at the number of people in attendance and gets on the with the business of rocking out. In fact., he’s so good it takes about two or three songs for people to start realizing there’s no-one behind the drum kit for tonight’s show. Yes – Axial Symmetry don’t currently have a drummer in place apparently, but they succeed in performing a great show (despite the bass player’s headphones things – lose them pal, you’re not in Linkin Park). They’re young, they’re not quite there yet – but they’re definitely going in the right direction. We’ll be keeping an eye out for them on future bills.

The mighty SNOWBLIND!

With the venue nicely warmed up and pints flowing – it’s time for the almighty mothers of funk, groove, stoner, heavy – all of the above and more METAL – Snowblind. If you’ve seen Snowblind, you’ve probably thought to yourself, “man – these guys are fucking insane! Why isn’t everyone in the world here to see them?”. Well Tickets There thinks the exact same thing every time we see them on stage. Despite having a bigger crowd than the last time we caught them at Carnage, they still play to a half empty room. This doesn’t phase the lads though as they plough through a savage set of covers and originals.  This is a band with extremely talented people, great songs and they have a shed loads of craic on stage. Go see them, go see them now!

By the end, memories of Slayer had almost become just that as Snowblind and Axial Symmetry nudged in and stole some of the thunder. Thanks to EHT for having us!
