I am sure that everyone by now has read the review of White Widdow’s first show in Athens that took place on Sunday (4th of December). What I want you to do now is forget all about it and just focus on this simple sentence: White Widdow’s second show in Athens was the best EVER performance of the Australian outfit on Greek soil! This was a true hard rock juggernaut that blew us away leaving us with priceless and unique memories. Unfortunately, we were only a few the lucky ones who witnessed that amazing show…
It’s not a big secret that White Widdow retains a very special bond with Greece as in the last five years they have paid three visits to our country and the fans have shown through the years a tremendous support (as Jules Millis said from the stage of Modu Club). As one can easily gather, White Widdow’s show was eagerly anticipated by all the hard rock fans in Athens, especially due to the fact that the Australian outfit had a brand new album called “Silhouette” in their bags.
Is there a better way to spend a freezing Tuesday night than attending a Testament live gig inside the Gagarin club? Of course not! So more than 1000 metalheads didn’t waste the rare chance to witness one of the greatest thrash metal bands of all time performing live and filled the place ahead of schedule. Karma Violens didn’t miss the chance to show its fangs to the crowd. It’s definitely a group of global standards. The band was tight and all members in constant motion with the sound as a valuable ally. Their extreme a-la Machine Head metal is very demanding in terms of sound engineering and can be very punishing if not directed properly through the speakers of any venue.
Every time Iced Earth pays a visit to Greece, it’s beyond any doubt that the show would be sold out as it was the case this time thus disappointing many fans which thought that it would be best to buy the ticket on the very last days before the concert date. The promoters had notified that there were no more tickets available while we must congratulate them on the fact that the schedule was kept precisely.
