The disappointment of this show being moved from the The Dome in Tufnell Park to the tiny club-venue, The Electrowerkz can’t kill the excitement of seeing two the of best bands in the world right now share the stage. Both MØL and Ghost Bath have had phenomenal years. The former releasing their debut album, Jord and the latter releasing their third album, Starmourner. Both albums will sit in many people’s top 10 release of the year and you can read our reviews below.
There are few bands right now more exciting then MØL but you couldn’t blame them if they phoned it in a bit seeing as they have 30 minutes and there is no more then 100 people inside the Electrowerkz. That is not the case though, not at all. Instead MØL deliver one of the most jaw-dropping shows seen this year and left the stage as conquering heroes.
A staggeringly great show, adding even more weight to their reputation following an impressive showing at Damnation Festival a few days before. The band, in particular, frontman Kim Song throw their everything into it and they could have been playing in front of 10,000 with the energy they show off. Kim Song even climbs from the stage at times to deliver an intense level of roaring and screaming in faces. The track Bruma is a moment that many will remember for a very long time.
I find it hard to believe that there is a better band in the world right now.
It’s a tough act to follow, it really is but Ghost Bath more then hold their own. Their style of ‘get on stage, play and then get off’ might rub some people up the wrong way but that’s Ghost Bath. A mysterious band but one who more then deliver when it comes to the music.
It’s as tight as it could ever be in a dingy club and while they don’t have the ‘wow’ factor that MØL do they fire off track after track that just melts the mind.
Taking the best of their back catalogue, it’s the likes of Golden Number and Thrones that really stand out. Then it ends, abruptly. The band walk off stage and everyone is expecting them to come back especially as they finished 10 minutes early but it quickly becomes apparent that is not the case. A bit disappointing as the crowd certainly had one more in them.
It’s a small complaint for a show that is going to be up there as one of the best of 2018 for sure.
