Lost, Tribulation & Lucifer
Venue: Academy 2, ManchesterDate: 30 September 2015
the evening were Lucifer who are currently riding the crest
of their impressive debut ‘Lucifer I’. The doom
metallers mustered together a tight a punchy set filled with
enough ‘sabbathesque’ riffs to satisfy the most die hard
metal heads. Drawing in a respectable crowd the Berlin
quartet were more than worthy of their early slot and this
performance symbolizes the bright future that lies ahead of
up, Tribulation built upon the momentum of the opening act
delivering their own brand of horror themed metal
music. Bursting onto stage at an almost frantic pace,
the Swede’s stormed through an unstoppable and energetic
set that had the assembled hordes lapping up every second of
As impressive as Lucifer and Tribulation were, the night belonged to Paradise Lost who effortlessly had the audience eating out the palm of their hands. Opening with ‘No Hope in Sight’ from their new album ‘The Plague Within’, the gothic/doom metallers rallied the audience with fists pumping and heads banging. Dedicating almost half of the set to their latest release, new material such as ‘Victim of the Past’, ‘Flesh from Bone’ and ‘Beneath Broken Earth’ went down a storm.
The title tracks from ‘Tragic Idol’ and ‘Faith Divides Us-Death Unites Us’ slotted nicely into the set along with classics such as ‘Enchantment’ before the finale of ‘Just Say Words’ wrapped up a perfect evening of metal music.
