Deathcrush (6/10)
Start 20:00 / End 20:30
Deathcrush is a Norwegian band composed by a drummer and two young ladies on bass and guitar. The performance started with a nice instrumental Doom Rock song, which captured the audience’s attention, to then progress towards Rock songs with Noise breaks, which could remind of some works by Jucifer. Both ladies knew how to move on stage and the band had some good pieces, which maybe have to be more focused. Deathcrush has all the potential to surprise us in the next future.

Maybeshewill (7/10)
Start 20:45 / End 21:25
Maybeshewill, from England, confirmed the good it showed last year as opening band for “And you will know us by the trails of dead”. Following the weird “rule” between some Post-Rock bands to write their name all together, the band proposed an intense show where its long instrumentals songs switched between powerful and slow passages, always supported by melodies created by the greatly played guitar and the keyboard. Maybeshewill proposed also some new pieces, which did not present any particular surprise, but stayed in the band’s style boundaries, leading people to hope for an upcoming release.

The Dillinger Escape Plan (9/10)
Start 22:00 / End 23:15
The Dillinger Escape Plan doesn’t need any presentation: one of the seminal band of the Hardcore contamination, it has moved through the years from a ferocious Hardcore Punk / Mathcore to a melting of Prog-Metal and Jazzcore. The Dillinger Escape Plans’ sound is unique in its genre, and the collaboration the band had with Mike Patton some years ago contributed to create this special but harmonious music fusion. Fresh of its latest work “One of Us is a Killer”, the American band presented it to its Berlin fans who came numerous to the show, even if the gig wasn’t sold out. Although someone has called the band the “Radiohead of Metalcore”, the quantity of wild energy flowing from stage and back was impressive. After an entrance between light flashes and bass lines, The Dillinger Escape Plan started its wild performance and Ben Weinman soon started crowd-surfing with the guitar on his hands, quickly followed by Greg Puciato. The half of the audience in the venue in front of the stage worked as a single entity with the stage: people moshed, sang along, crowd-surfed without any rest for the whole show; as a response, The Dillinger Escape Plan didn’t spare itself, offering an intense and fascinating show, where the couple Weinman-Puciato was the absolute protagonist. Both didn’t stop literally a second, jumping and climbing everywhere on the small stage, full of amplifiers and two small widescreens, on which images were projected during the songs. The level of quality of the The Dillinger Escape Plan’s live performance is not a new discovery: In spite of the many changes, it stayed the same all along the band’s career. It’s simply something which doesn’t have to be missed at all!
