Co-Headliners Dope and Combichrist deliver powerful sets for metal-hungry fans in Louisville with September Mourning and Davey Suicide.
As part of the Blood Lust Death tour, both Dope and Combichrist are treating fans to full sets each evening of the tour. This thirty-six date run covers all four corners of the United States in forty-two days.
Combichrist drummer Joe Letz, wearing a neon yellow ski mask, a tutu around his neck and a stuffed bikini top casually walks on stage, grabs the big floor bass drum from his kit and hands it to some very willing fans center stage to hold. While Joe bangs out some deep bass notes the rest of the guys appear on stage and â€œThe show is onâ€.
Industrial metal titans Combichrist catapult into â€œWhat the Fuck is Wrong With Youâ€ and immediately the venue is jumping and bouncing at a frenetic pace. Without missing a beat â€œBlut Royale,â€ â€œSkullcrusher,â€ and â€œThroat Full of Glassâ€ are the next on the set-list, amping up the energy in the room even higher.
Lead singer Andy LaPlegua, takes a moment to let everyone catch their breath. Staring out into the room with a sinister and completely demented smile, he knows he has complete control of the evening. Eric 13 on Guitar, Brent Ashley on bass and Nick Rossi on Percussion are tight and sharp, delivering intense rhythms and deep beats that keep Trixieâ€™s and this Louisville crowd jumping all evening.
Combichrist keeps the party and energy going with the anthem-like â€œMy Life My Rules,â€ and â€œBody Beat,â€ â€œShut Up and Swallowâ€ before they close out their set and their set with â€œSent to Destroyâ€.
It has been more than five years since Dope last performed in Louisville and the crowd is more than ready to receive what Dope is dealing. Edsel Dope, Nick Dibs on bass, Virus on lead guitar and Daniel Fox on drums waste no time getting the Dope party started, launching into â€œViolence,â€ â€œBlood Money.â€ and â€œ6-6-Sickâ€ in rapid succession. With the energy level spiking, â€œBitch,â€ â€œBest Shot,â€ and â€œMy Funeralâ€ immediately follow while the pit is in a frenzy of moshing and thrashing.
The stage at Trixie’s, with large LED light panels on either side and swamped with fog, creates a dynamic and pulsating atmosphere that Dope thrives on while they roll through some gritty covers of â€œSpin Me Aroundâ€ (Dead or Alive), â€œRebel Yellâ€ (Billy Idol) and â€œFuck Tha Policeâ€ (N.W.A.) that the Louisville fans are totally into. Dope wraps up their full set in epic fashion with a killer version of â€œ1999â€, leaving everyone sweaty, exhausted and satisfied, hoping it wonâ€™t be another 5 years before Dope returns to Louisville.
Visually stunning, musically enchanting and gripping, rockers September Mourning are captivating as they roll through their set. Dressed in all white, with long, flowing multi-colored hair, lead singer September with bandmates Raven on Guitar, Shadou on bass and Stitch on Drums create an atmosphere straight from a fantasy. September Mourningâ€™s music tells a passionate and intimate story that hits into your very core and is extremely well received tonight.
As if they are shot out of a canon, goth rocker Davey Suicide and bandmates Drayven Davidson on drums, Niko Gemini on guitar and Derek Obscura on bass blast onto the Small Trixieâ€™s stage with a vengeance. Touring in support of their fantastic new album, Made from Fire â€ their set is highlighted by the contagious â€œRise Aboveâ€ and the raucous â€œToo Many Freaksâ€ along with a few older songs â€œWorld Wide Suicideâ€ and â€œKids of Americaâ€.
Their blazing performance and Davey’s energetic stage presence leave a great impression and start the night off right. While their set is on the short side tonight, Davey Suicide is a must-see band in the future.
