Chimaira/ETID in Belfast

Posted on February 12, 2008

Chimaira 16-02-2004 Belfast Limelight “Just home from one of the best metal gigs in a long time, Every Time I Die were the first band on, stupidly not expecting anything big I stayed back just to be hit by a wall of noise. Every Time I Die were very good even without the Limelights full PA system some very good music indeed. Chimaira came on stage and to my complete dismay there was one missing. Why was Mark Hunter playing the guitar? Thankfully all my questions were answered after the intro. Chimaira ripped through a completely blinding set, completely outstanding one of the best live bands I have ever seen, and them with one guitarist down! Near the end of the set Mark informed us that he was called the Metal Moses, he explained that Moses parted the Red Sea and he parts the metal sea (or something like that), and with that each member of the crowd chose a side of the room and when the song kicked in we went mental. Even with the guitarist from Every Time I Die helping out on vocals for one song (Indifferent To Suffering) followed by a stage dive! They played all the essential songs Cleansation, Sp Lit, Power Trip and just about everything else they could. There was a downside to the night though but it had nothing to do with Chimaira, it was just silly me lost one of my favourite T-shirts while crowed surfing, and I accidentally kicked a security guard in the face while coming off the front of the crowd, after I apologised to him and he was pretty cool about it! There was also an amazing drum solo and a jam session where they just winged it! Over all a good night was had by all! One last thing I would like to thank Chimaira for playing when most bands would have just cancelled and not even let us know so if any one in Chimaira is reading this THANK YOU.” Brendan Grimley
