Chimaira/ETID in Birmingham #2
Posted on February 12, 2008Thanks to Adam Powell for sharing his thoughts on the Chimaira/Every Time I Die Birmingham show!
"The lights go down, silence falls and the crowd looks on. They're now confronted by the long, melodic intro to "Implements Of Destruction," the minute or so that it lasts flys by as you know what's coming up. It's edging towards the end and the crowd are getting itchy with anticipation, the atmosphere is full of excitement and mysteriousness.
The song kicks in as the band come on stage riffs blazing. The crowd scream and start moving around, getting into the state of mind that is Chimaira.
They burst straight into "Cleansation" and the place goes crazy. The band are going at it with all their might and the place is exploding from every orifice. One-by-one they trail through their set of classics old and new.
Going past "Severed", "Lumps", "Dead Inside" only stopping to instigate circle pits and split pits. They hit the aspects of "Eyes Of A Criminal",
"Overlooked" and ended with the all-energetic "Pure Hatred". The fast flowing, surfing manic chaos that just evolved before our eyes has left everyone wide eyed and on their knees begging for more.
But without an encore the band leaves you with the feeling that you don't need one, the cripling domination that they've just had in their hands, and unleashed upon us is more than enough."
