It was back in 1993 when a group of musicians decided to do something out of the ordinary that, in their own words, seemed something just for fun. “Plays Metallica By Four Cellos” was released in 1996 and they didn’t expect that it would make such an impact. Many years after that, they have released eight studio albums, they have gained worldwide fame and have sold over four million copies. The tour for the anniversary of this album brought them to Greece in order to perform in Gazi Music Hall.
It is not an exaggeration to say, that a concert has a lot in common with a celebration. Moreover, when we are talking about a concert where three local bands play, with one of them presenting its new record, those two events identify as the same thing, or at least this should be the case.
Another show of the Greeks’ favorite Joe lynn Turner means one thing right away: a packed venue with hardcore fans that are ready to show their love to this great performer. What if he had played here before less than a year before, MODU was filled to the brim!
Rotting Christ is a band that is constantly growing bigger. A lot of work, recordings and endless touring gave them wide recognition amongst the metal fans. As a result, their headline shows in Athens are not as frequent as one might think. Their last one was in November of 2013. As it was expected, the first day was sold out with the second one being a special show.
