  • Skreaming June! “Dance Tonight Fest”
    By on February 2nd, 2010 | 99 Comments99 Comments Comments

    “Dance Tonight! fest will be held the 4+5th of June, at Ungdommenshus, in Fredericia, Denmark.
    The idea of this festival is to have a shitload of fun, while maintaining a good and respectful attitude. Because of this we serve no meat, so that everyone can enjoy a good meal, we do not see any kind of violence, and we do not see any drug use either. Of course we do not allow any kind of discrimination either, be it due to religion, nationality, sex or sexual preferences, or any other matter.
    Simply put: No meat, no violence, no drugs, no discrimination!” (taken from their myspace page)

    Sounds great, huh? But keep your pants on, you haven’t seen the bandlist!

    Aussitôt Mort
    Karysun
    Resurrectionists
    My Polaris Artillery
    Nightpass
    Suis La Lune
    Millions Of Them
    Blood Command
    Petethepiratesquid
    Alpinist
    If Footmen Tire you, what will horses do?
    Echo, Echo, Landscape!
    Pesanteur
    viceversa
    The Seven Mile Journey
    Dominic
    and some single bands TBC.

    Damn you Denmark for being so far away! Of course, the fest is far away at this point, so the bandlist is subject to change, but hopefully the only thing changing will be an increasing number of bands.
    So what to say? If you are lucky enough to make it to the fest, GO! This is just one of those thing you don’t want to miss.

    Day 1:

    Our train took off at 12:44. A friend (who just finished work since 10 minutes) and I were sitting in the train with bags full of food and a case of beer and we were talking about „the old days“. At 16:20 our train arrived in Halle (Westphalia) and we were on the way to the bus-terminal. First we ran into the wrong bus, but the bus driver told us, that we should take the other bus to get to Versmold. After 40 minutes bus ride through nothing but cornfields we arrived at the ZOB Versmold. Once we were there, the band “Fargo” asked us, if we were going to the CMAR too and we decided to order a big taxi which drove us to the “Wörstenkrug” within 5 minutes. When we arrived we pitched our tent and went directly into the venue, because we arrived 10 minutes before the first band “Hammers” from Manchester started to play. I can’t tell much about the band, because I don’t like them so much. What sucked was that you couldn’t hear the singer. The first band is always fucked.
    The next band was one of my favourites at the first day: „Alpinist“ from Munster. First Stagediver got onto the stage and finally there was some movement in the crowd. While the band played, we met some very nice Hungarian people and we met outside to drink something. Unfortunately my friend drank way too much of the self-made Hungarian Cognac, so that he lay puking everywhere and I missed the next 3 bands (Me and Goliath, Dolcim and Battle of Wolf 359). Because „The Third Memory“ came a few hours too late and my friend had finally finished puking, I was able to see the last 3 songs of „The Third Memory“ and realized that the atmosphere reached the boiling point. At last “Trainwreck started to play, who were the final straw. Stagedivers everywhere and even I got onto the stage to jump into the crowd, but after a few seconds, I hit my head on the ground, but I got picked up immediately and was carried through the room (and over the cameraman). Trainwreck played about an hour, but just 2 new songs, which you could already hear on the MySpace-site. But nonetheless, the first evening (except the accident with my friend) was amazing.

    Day 2:

    ..Started very early at 4 a.m., because I wasn’t able to sleep on that stony ground with a snoring neighbour. So I took a seat on the bench, directly next to the guitarist of “Ghostchant” and a Dutch, who was talking about his terrible childhood. After 2 hours of doing nothing, I lay back into the tent a slept a few hours. At about 10 a.m. my alcoholic friend finally awake and we were asking ourselves how to kill time till 16 O Clock. Funnily, we realized, everyone was laughing at him or asking him, if he’s ok again.
    At 13 O Clock we took a taxi to Versmold, because we were out of food. Finally it was 4 p.m. and we got into the venue to see „Ghostchant“ from Munich. They played about 30 minutes and played every song I liked. The next band was “Ghostlimb” from California. Very funny guys, its three-quarter of “Graf Orlock” so it has to be funny. Since I don’t like this band, I went to the record-table to buy 7 records and 2 shirts. After Ghostlimb it was time for my favourites of the whole weekend: “Danse Macabre”. Unfortunately the played just about 30 minutes too, but it was a hell of a show! The last song should be a song from the new album, but when the a few people shouted “BESOFFSKI!” they played that song at last. The next band was „June Paik“, who totally blew me away. When the finished their set, I was shaking all over my body. I’d like to thank that little Asian guy in the yellow shirt for kicking me into the face a few times, while we were both crowd surfing. As far as I know, June Paik just played songs from their last 2 LP’s which doesn’t really matter to me, because that two records are my favourites.
    Now it was the turn for the band I was very exited for: “Louise Cyphre”. The band that doesn’t exist anymore, but still plays at the CMAR. Or like the singer said: „Louise Cyphre is not dead, she’s just sleeping very deeply. Maybe we’re here next year again or maybe not.“ Hm, what can I say? I wasn’t really disappointed, but they didn’t blow my away as I expected. Maybe because of the short songs.
    As next it was Zann’s turn. They turned off the lights and did a awesome show with all songs I liked, even my favourite, the “Chokehold” Cover “Burning Bridges” were I tried to get to the microphone were a Dutch helped me to get there, but I didn’t reach the microphone. After Zann it was the turn of one of the most intense Liveband I’ve ever seen: “Graf Orlock“. With their “Trashy Grindcore” they crusted the venue. Mosh Pits, Circle Pits, small Wall of Deaths, everything was there. The singer threw himself (or got pushed by his band mates) into the crowd hundreds of times.
    After „Gorlock“ it was time for maybe the most interesting band of the weekend: „Shikari“ from the Netherlands. The Band split in 2005 (?) and probably played their last show here and totally broke everything. At the beginning he accidently threw down his AMP and then he jump with the guitar into the crowd. Shikari played about 60 minutes and every classic like “Copycat” or “Robot Wars” was played. Amusing was, when it seemed that the Drummer had to go to the toilet and jumped into the crowd to get there. After the Shikari gig, it hang out with some of the Dutch and a guy I met a few hours ago, till I finally realized, I was the only one still awake. So I woke my friend to order a taxi to get to Halle. The Taxi driver nearly killed us when he drove 160 km/h on a 70 km/h way.

    So, that was my CMAR weekend. 15 € entry, about 40 € to get there are totally worth it. And I’ll be there next year again!

  • Pangaea, Ghostchant & Red Tape Parade

    Great! Mr_Evil took some photos! Check ’em out here.
    Thanks, man!
    You can watch the whole Pangaea gig on Youtube! Watch it here.

    This is my first review, I don’t think it will be good or long. Sorry for any mistakes in my grammar and wrong typed words.

    It was the second Screamo concert I attended. Yeah, some kind of pathetic, I know, but here in Munich (Germany) are not very often Screamo concerts or I can’t go for some reasons I don’t wanna write now. I didn’t take photos because I’m really not good at it so the photos wouldn’t be sharp or you just wouldn’t see anything on it. And fuck, I was there to listen to those bands, not to take any photos! I’ll give you a link, if I find some photos.

    The concert was at a location in Munich called ‘Kafe Marat’. That location is really fucked up. Awesome.
    The first band which played was Pangaea, a Screamo band from Munich. It was their last show by the way. Very sadly… That band was very good. The singer started the first three or four songs with jumpin’ into the audience. Some people were very shocked as the singer jumped onto them. Then he walked in the crowd, singing (yes, okay. Screaming). After some time he jumped onto their merch table still screaming. Then he jumped back into the audience, walked around, screamed at some persons. Some of them screamed back (the lyrics of course). Very nice. At this time a persons next to me had the idea to jump into the crowd, too. Hell, I was fuckin’ shocked as he jumped into my direction…
    Then came the last song. I think it was the 7th or 8th song by them, can’t really remember and I really didn’t count the songs. The singer (I don’t know his name) throw his microphone onto the ground and screamed the shit out of himself. And yes, he walked through the audience and jumped onto their merch table again. He danced very cool by the way.

    The next bands were Ghostchant and Red Tape Parade. Ghostchant is from Munich, too and they play also Screamo. Red Tape Parade is from Würzburg and they play some kind of Punk Rock and Hardcore in my opinion. They had a great idea: Play against each other at the same time. That means there were two stages, on the right side were Ghostchant, Red Tape Parade on the left, of course. Ghostchant started playing their first song. I can’t give you the song names but they played their whole split ep. After the second song the audience turned around and listened to two songs of Red Tape Parade. This happenend four times, as far as I remember and Ghostchant offended Red Tape Parade 😀 Then the bands played one bonus song each and the gig was over. Oh yes, a friend of mine told me that Red Tape Parade wore monkey masks while they were playing a song. I haven’t seen that, there were a lot of people in front of me :/

    Well, what can I say? It was awesome and I really wanna see them again. I had to pay five Euros (6,33 Dollars) to see those three great bands and I got the Red Tape Parade/Ghostchant Split EP 7″ also. Sadly Pangaea broke up, as I already wrote. That band was very great although the singer used to growl sometimes. You should know, that I’m not a big fan of growling. Ghostchant and Red Tape Parade were awesome, too. If you have the chance to see them live, go and watch them, it’s absolutely worth.

    arrow3 Band

    The Saddest Landscape play an authentic style of emo, combining influences from the original “emo” sound with the more chaotic sounds of the later “screamo” bands of the 90s.

    Aaron gave me the link of the band’s shop, you can find the shop here.
