A hard wind is coming from the North
Mayhem, Gaahl’s Wyrd, GosT
Daemon Tour presented by Doomstar Bookings, Season Of Mist, Planet Metal and TON – Music Productions, SIMMCity Wien, Austria 20191114
Going to the southeastern outskirts of Vienna, more precise to Simmering with the subway U3, you find a concert location at every station. Erdberg, Gasometer and near Zippererstraße you find the ((szene)), from where this Black Metal highlight has been moved to the SIMMCity near Enkplatz, due to the high demand.
Dark Funeral played the same location too already. This night, it all starts with GosT, not to be confused with Ghost. Electronic noise and skirl with heavy beats, the Synthwave of the band makes think of a mix of KaaK and Paradise Lost (who will be playing at the Vienna Metal Meeting with Firtan and more). “Severance” is the final blast, as were the genre brothers Perturbator at the Summer Breeze Open Air 2018. At this year’s Summer Breeze, the Black Metal gods Gaahls Wyrd played too. After selling out their latest shows at the Viper Room and Escape, they play the middle slot. The calm and sublime appearance of Gaahl and the energetic performance of the band are their trademarks.
The main act of this tour is the one and only true Mayhem. They recently were in all music magazines from the Rock Hard and Metal Hammer to the Slam Magazine because of Jonas Åkerlund’s “Lords Of Chaos”. They also headlined the Vienna Metal Meeting already. And this night, they show again why they are one of the biggest Black Metal bands. They change the stage design two times. They start with tunes of their new record “Daemon” amongst others. In the middle they get to the incomparable “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” with the amazing “Freezing Moon” (of which one made an awesome piano cover). At the end, they come up with more speed with tracks from “Deathcrush”, that underlines the influence of Hellhammer, Necrobutcher, Attila and the others.
