Live & Dangerous: Seven Deadly, Fell On Black Days, Counterhold

Seven Deadly, Fell On Black Days, Counterhold: Bogiez Cardiff (11 May 2012)


Having already witnessed Counterhold seeing them again was a treat as they have improved tenfold since I last saw them. The Cwmbran metallers play an impressive display of modern metal filled with chunky riffage and great roaring vocals. After some great supports I look forward to seeing them move up the bill in future. 7/10

Fell On Black Days

FOBD had more of a thrash sound than the other to bands and while their set was good and drew the crowd nearer. they really didn't do it for me I'm afraid, although they did have their moments with the twin riffage and chain gun drumming causing an almighty noise throughout the small venue, they were also very well-rehearsed and executed, however it was just the vocals (or the acoustics surrounding them) that let them down slightly. 6/10

Seven Deadly

I had seen Panic Cell a few times as well as their final show at Sonisphere last year, however Seven Deadly are a completely new prospect mainly due to new vocalist Archie who brings a Rob Flynn vibe to the band. He sings strongly and roars like a beast over the more thrash/modern metal style that Seven Deadly have adapted to (expanding on the groove metal of Panic Cell). The band looked to be having the time of their lives with core members, Harj, Bobby T and Rob Hicks (the former PC members) all seeming far more relaxed than they were at the last PC show. New boys Dave Irving (guitar) and Archie Wilson (Vocals) also seem to have settled well. (Although Archie's pre-set trick is not funny!). They played the four tracks from their great E.P (soon to be reviewed) and a few others that will be awesome on the full length. All in all a great set from a band that are not a shadow of their former selves but a brand new snarling beast entirely. 8/10
