Imago CUK Belgrade, 10.12.2016
Five awesome bands held a concert to collect the money for the boy named Stefan in the Imago Cuk Center, who suffers from cerebral paralysis. I can say about this concert’s that the band and the crowd was united for a noble reason to say someones life and that is a big think.This concert showed that metalheads in general have a big heart and that they want to help someone in trouble.Concert was the pure demonstration and power of thrash metal for the good cause.
The first band to play was a Serbian speed/thrash metal band Exhibition. This band is a group of talent young musicians, they have a fun on the scene, they are totally into their music. The crowd support them completly, they were screaming, headbanging. The songs that this band played were covers from the legendary heavy and thrash metal bands such as Halloween, Iron Maiden, Agent Steel, Whiplash, Nuclear Assulta the song were “Be Quick or be Dead“, “Aces High”,”Bleed for the Gods”,”Power Thrashing death”. The covers sounded really great, the power of true thrash and heavy metal was present, the energy of this band was at the highest point, the crowd was also full of energy, so the band and the crowd made this show amazing, everyone in the hall was in such a positive mood, it was something magical, even the crowd got on the stage and singed with the band. The time has comed for the band to get of the stage, the crowd was ready for more thrash metal madness.
The second band was Kobold Serbian speed thrash metal band. This band is demostration of thrash metal band with three members, which everyone one of them has a great tehnical and vocal abilities on the live concert’s, and it can be also heard on their EP “Madness Overture” and their debut album “Death Parade” .They began there performance in very raw but energetic way, the sound was raw, the sound of riffs were crushing the walls of the hall.The vocal Elio Rigonat showed that his voice is no joke, it’s pure evilness. The first song was “Die Hard“, the crowd was in trance there were mosh pits, headbanging, screaming ovations for each song.Then they played the songs from their upcoming album such as “Random act of Violence“,”Death Parade” and “I Icarus” and so on. The guitarist Savo and drummer Sergej also singed on some songs.Crowd reacted insane to their perfomance, they made the atmosphere so amazing, everyone was in such crazy mood. Kobold left the stage and what is about to happen next was the explosion of madness.
The time has come for the third band to begin and the madness begined with Serbian thrash/cross over band Nadimac. When they arrived on the stage mayhem has begone, not only the band was crazy as hell, but the crowd went completly insane and out off cotrol. Fearlessness of this band made the atmosphere, almost like there is going to be some massive slaughter among the crowd. The singer Danilo Trbojevic was all over the place. I can say he was faster than lightning. Crowd has headbanged, screaming, there were ovations, crowd diving and mosh pits all the tame, the atmosphere was like a bomb, with every second it was about blow off and to be a true fucking mayhem and destruction.They played the songs from their LP release “Manifest Protiv Sudbine” and the other songs they played were “Smrt Autoriteta“, “Koma Sutra“, “Treće Oko” and this song was from thier first album called “Državni Neprijatelj Broj Kec“. The crowd reaction in a very crazy way to all of this songs, like I said before.The band left the stage, the half of the crowd left the hall.
The fourth band was Serbian thrash metal band Prisoner. The half of the crowd left the hall and the shame is on them. This is one amazing band that has a potencial to be really big band one day, they didn’t now what they missed, when they left the concert.The band played very furiously in the brutal manner, crushing riffs were all over the place, the sound was awesome and magical, with the musical skills of guitarist Mateja Cveticanin what can go wrong. The drummer that was supposed to play on the concert was Igor Kuzmovic, but he didn’t play on the concert for some reason, the former drummer Nikola Simonović joined them on this concert. The first song was “Something To Fear” from thier album “See the Scars“.The other songs they played were from the same album and those songs were “Deceived“, “Messiah“,“The Beast in the Mirror“, “Risen from the Grave“, “Hung, Drawn & Quartered” from the same album. They also performed new song “Dead Travel Fast“, every song on the concert had that power in the sound and energy, band gave the audience a full package of madness, and the crowd reaction very possitive, they headbang, screamed, they were mosh pits, crowd diving. The band showed on the concert why they are a one very unigue and awesome band, it’s all about how you present your music. They played “Risen from the Grave” as thier last song, the crowd wanted more, so the band got on the stage for the encore and they played a cover of Heller Yugoslavian thrash metal band the song was “Inkvizicija“. The band left the stage. The next band was up to fucked up the crowd.
The fifth band was Serbian progressive thrash metal band Alitor. The band got on the stage, and the apocylpse can began. The band played songs such as “Artist Of Deception“,”Embittered“, Realm Of Grief was the from their first album “Eternal Depression“. The band played like true thrash metal masters. They were late for the show because they were shooting their new music video. The singer said this: “We apologize for being late, we were shooting our new music video“.The show goes on. The crowd really enjoyed their show. Last song they played was song “Horror“. Crowd was having fun and they were happy. Band got of the stage and that was about it for the concert and one crazy night.
It so nice to see people in such humanitarian concert that they not only enjoy music, but they spent their time to help a sick little boy, who needed a help from all of us. I hope the bands collected money for the Stefan. There was a lot love that night, if the people were humane as all of the people on the concert and the bands a world would surely be a better place. Help others, you will never no when you are going to need someones help.
