Date: 09-03-2008, venue: Nachtleben, Frankfurt (Germany)
By: Nina Mende
It was one of the best if not the best Emergenza show I have ever been to. All
bands were really good and I didn’t really feel very well knowing that
4 of them would not take part at the next round. They all would have deserved
it, but hey, that’s the rules of Emergenza.
The first band was a metal core band called Scream of the Abyss. Although they
were opener of the night and there weren’t too many people in the beginning
the Nachtleben was filling up quickly and many people started rocking in front
of the stage. There were even some girls banging and almost moshing around.
The singer went down to the audience and performed there for a while as well.
There was a nice interaction between band and audience going on. Scream of the
Abyss did great as opener and warmed up the audience, so they really deserved
being fourth best of the night and the chance to enter the next round!!! A great
band even I voted for although I don’t really like metal too much.
sound. Somehow it sounded mainstream, yet it not quite… really interesting.
The guys knew how to rock the stage and the audience; unfortunately they didn’t
enter the next round though.
strong sound. Reminding of Nickleback and Puddle of Mudd this band was getting
the audience’s votes with their great performance. Another great thing
the band did was the sitting mosh pit! Yes, you heard right, sitting! We all
had to sit on the floor for one song and mosh sitting. It worked out quite well,
was different from everything I have seen before and it was fun, which was most
important. Unfortunately they didn’t enter the next round either, but they
were good, and if they keep on going I am sure we will see them around.
rocked the house in German and brought quite some fans and friends. The drummer
had an interesting hairstyle, blond hair but there was something brown in it.
Was it a symbol? A letter? I couldn’t figure it out and didn’t really
feel like asking either. The singer and guitar player reminded me of Caleb Hydra
or some styles of Matthau Mikojan (both are Finnish musicians). But that didn’t
make me vote for them, it was their great sound and the ass-kicking performance
of them. Therefore they deserved the first place of the night.
Project RSK is alternative rock. The band is in the exam phase right now, and
it seemed like they brought all their classmates. They rocked their 30 minutes
and their friends and fans, and even others out of the audience voted them second
of the night.
can say they were my favorites of the night. They acted quite professional on
stage, they were dressed up in checkers. The Twisted Strings knew how to interact
with audience and reminded a little bit of Billy Talent. The audience loved
them. For about a minute they played their one cover song, it was Backstreet
Boys… Somehow really everybody could sing along. Even the metal heads got
caught in the act. For their last song they handed out sparklers to everybody
in the audience. Very neat. Somehow they ended up “only” on third
and reminded me of bands such as Schandmaul, Subway to Sally, etc. They had
a female guitar player. The venue was getting empty now though, because it was
a Sunday evening and many, if not all of us, had to get up early the next morning.
Metallica. They rocked the stage and ended this night of Emergenza. Now I am looking forward to the next Emergenza.
