October 2002 - (Friday Club)
This was the first concert in "Friday"
- the hall is much larger than in other clubs we already
play in. The stage looks like a good one - it is relatively
high, there is enough space. We played in "line"
(without combos), and that is why the stage sound
was not very good (at least it seemed so to me), but
better than in other clubs. People said that in the
hall itself every song was perfectly audible - but
this lasted only for 3 songs of ours... The problem
began when the local sound produce who was also a
DJ decided not to risk much and made guitars very
quiet. Then some kind man suggested that we add volume
on our guitar processors (and that is what we did).
We played well, but this time our bassist failed.
He forgot to tune his bass and though he played correctly
the sound was awful. But in some places in a fuss
he played even too much what he was not supposed to
to play =)
Yes, we were very excited, because for the first
time we saw so many people infront of us. All our
friend lost in a crowd and we hardly saw them. No
one did handbanging... everyone listened attentively
to our music. To all appearances we I can assume that
everything went quite good because of the loud ovations
after each song.
After us there came a famous "Diamond"
with a very original performance - all the music was
recorded as a phonogram and some girls were dancing
while he growled under his recording. Then followed
"Black Astrology" band, all painted like
black metallists. Among them I noticed a famous figure
of Saint-Petersburg metal scene - "Kill"
and guitarist of "Koma".
This was very good concert because we saw and heard
new people's opinions about our music, also we got
a couple of valuable contacts that may lead us further
in our musical career. Only if Pavel played well...
eh... and Vladimir didn't take so long pauses between
the songs, everything would be just "yippee".
