Enslaved

Winterfylleth (7/10)
Start 21:00 / End 21:40
Winterfylleth couldn’t open the evening in a better way: powerful, epic Black Viking metal with no frills. Just black t-shirts, jeans, short hair and few light effects on stage, but a lot of substance. The sound was clear and Winterfylleth’s performance really involving; so much that the whole audience enjoyed the show and accompanied it with continuous headbanging. If you don’t know Winterfylleth, you have to try it. The band plays nothing original, but makes what it plays fucking good. Odin should be proud of Winterfylleth!

Enslaved (8/10)
Start 22:10 / End 23:45
Enslaved is a band coming from Norway, who plays Black / Viking Metal since the beginning of the 90s. This consideration could let run away a lot of readers, not comfortable with that Metal style. Nevertheless, Enslaved deserves a listen because we are talking about one of the really few bands in Black Metal, who tried and achieved the hard purpose of developing and innovating this kind of music niche. Enslaved goes beyond Black Metal, introducing clean vocals, progressive and psychedelic components to its sound. The peak point of its sound has been maybe reached with the latest album “Riitiir”; during the live show at SO36, almost a year after Enslaved’s last appearance in Berlin, the band proposed songs of the mentioned album, in a setlist which picked up from the entire Enslaved’s discography. The band loves playing in this city and they don’t hide this; at the same time the audience  loves Enslaved back, although the venue wasn’t complete full in this occasion. It was impressive to see how the band doesn’t take itself too seriously; they talked and joked continuously with the audience in a very familiar atmosphere during the show. A lot of bands should learn from Enslaved, concerning both, how to play and how to stay on stage!

  1. […] a lot of smoke, few words exchanged with the audience and the jeans+black shirt outfit (reminding Winterfyllet – is this a mark of the British Black Metal scene?) Fen showed how substance wins over apparence. […]
