Panzerfaust, Fragile Existence, Necrodios
The Opera House
Thursday April 24, 2014
It was a very exciting night at the Opera House. Fans celebrated not only because they finally remodelled the bathrooms, but for the fact that Nile finally was able to cross the Canadian border!! Huzzah! Fans lined up the bars at the Opera House as soon as the doors opened, gathering a pretty decent crowd for the local openers. Necrodios made the best of the still half asleep crowd and played a decent set, getting a lot of head bobbers.
Fragile Existence tried to amp up the crowd a bit more, calling everyone “heathen mother fuckers” and raising a toast to Nile. Their set was fast and heavy, with an enthusiastic headbanger here and there. Vocalist Dan Glover loves the laughs and would take a generous time between tracks talking up the crowd.
Panzerfaust brought the essence of darkness to the stage, with vocalist Goliath donning a grim hood and noose. Their tunes were heavy, dark and atmospheric creating the grimmest of grim vibe. To top off their intense set, Goliath choked himself onstage with the noose (which I thought was completely ornamental) and finished the set by taking off his mask and flogging himself onstage. Definitely a set to remember.
