Back at the beginning of August I was present at a show out in the east-end at the relatively new Obsession live lounge. The show was sparsely attended, due in part to the fact that it was competing with at least two other shows happening elsewhere on the same evening. While I’m sure those other events were just as enjoyable, the fact remains that those who didn’t attend missed a talented band from the other side of the world. Usually, such an opportunity wouldn’t happen again.
Fortunately, Brazil’s Santuarium have stuck around our corner of the world and will be coming back to storm the Rainbow on the 16th with Tomahawk Punch and Creeping Beauty. I can’t stress enough how good this band is (check out my review of the last show) and how much they deserve a howling crowd to greet them. Their approach to Metal is one of the most unique I’ve seen, coating their hard rock core with symphonic and gothic elements without allowing those elements to diminish their punchy guitar work and headbanging compositions.
So it’s a Wednesday night. Not the most convenient thing in the world, I know. But this is a dedicated band from across the globe that deserves an appreciative crowd. What else were you going to do that night?
Seriously, don’t miss these guys again. They’re killer!
