with support from SID, T3TRA and Axiom.
O2 Institute 2 Birmingham 30th March 2019.
This evenings Ovation Music Management event really and truly is set to be something special. With Axiom, T3TRA, SID UK and our headliners Netherhall all forming an amazing line up, the music will certainly be first class tonight!
Getting tonight underway were Axiom and despite me only managing to catch the last few songs of their set, it was evident that this band are a progmasters absolute delight. Not only Axiom combine musical fluency with heaps of originality, their personality also shines through – and that is a win win in my book.
Carrying the night on in a similar musical vein were T3TRA and tonight’s set at the O2 Institute2 marked their first live performance ever. With an audience of many well wishers there to cheer them on, nerves were not apparent and despite a few technical problems, the depth and inventiveness of their music shone through. T3TRA are a band that have so much potential and I highly recommend you get yourself over to a show of theirs, first chance you get.
Next up were SID UK and you can’t help but love this band as they always fill the room with great music and a heartfelt performance, every time they get up on stage. Having seen SID play live on numerous occasions, my expectations of tonight’s set were set pretty high but yet again, these guys surpassed themselves and in my opinion, they were the best I’ve ever seen them. With the promise of a new album release later this year, I for one can’t wait for that and will be keeping my eyes peeled for more news over the following months.
Our headlining band tonight have been wowing their audiences every time they set foot on stage and are none other than Birmingham’s own, Netherhall. Progressive metal never sounded so good as it does when Netherhall perform and with the recent change in line up to now include the vocal majesty of Matthew Preston, their overall sound is guaranteed to end shivers down your spine. Tonight’s set saw the band in a league of their own and was completely spellbinding from start to finish.
Tonight’s line up proved itself to be an outstanding assembly of West Midlands talent and what an amazing experience and great night it was!
