6, 2005 - Arctica Club ("Metka" with "Koma")
I've visited a gig in "Arctica". Metka
and Koma were playing.
I went with with the girlfriend and friend. Well,
first I was going to go with a friend (he hit me to
go to the club), but then I decided to call a company,
well, at least somebody. So I didn't ponder too much
and invited a good friend of mine (Eis). We met before
the concert on the subway "Tehnolozhka".
We arrived on "Primorskaya" 10 minutes before
the concert, then passed our coats to cloakroom and
... well.. went into the club hall.
Bought some beer and sat down at the table (in this
club it is very comfortable to be in. You can sit,
sip beer at the bar, and generally "participate"
in the perfomance from afar. There are no guards so
you can very close to the stage there, even grab musicians).
Well, quite cool. No smother in the club hall, though
quite a lot of people.
I sat at a table, then moved to do some headbanging
in the front of the stage. First came Metka also known
as Black Label. Not a bad band, I liked it. Vocalist
is okey. I especially remember the moment when Vetyukov
(vocalist of Metka) due to the technical delay in
their playing began to read poems. He read Yesenin.
Black label had three times play an encore, people
just did not want to let them go and all shouted:
Another band was "Koma". This group in
particular made a strong impression on me, although
Metka has played a couple of songs similar to the
Aria, and in the first set they played "Zdes
Kuyut Metall" - a very good edited text version
of the same song they played an encore, just as people
from the crown asked.
