EP: Fei Comodo – The Life They Lead

Release Date: May 28th, 2011
Label: Small Town Records
Website: www.feicomodo.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/feicomodo

Rating:

You may recognise Fei Comodo; they wrote the theme song for ‘Mighty Moshin’ Emo Rangers’. They also gained a lot of attention from their first EP, ‘They All Have Two Faces’. The Essex quintet has surely been busy, touring the country supporting the likes of InMe and Blessed By A Broken Heart. But somehow amidst their hectic schedule, they found the time to release another EP, ‘The Life They Lead’.

LIVE: Fei Comodo @ Relentless Garage, London (13/05/2011)

Date: May 13th, 2011
Venue: Relentless Garage, London
Support: Burn The Fleet, Shadows Chasing Ghosts
Website: www.feicomodo.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/feicomodo

Rating:

Tucked away at the end of Highbury Road is the tiny club venue, the Relentless Garage, above that venue is the even smaller upstairs room. It is ridiculously small, and is the perfect venue for bands such as those on offer tonight to get in your face and really make a name for themselves, and the fact that these three up-and-coming bands have failed to pack it out is somewhat of a disappointment.

Bring on Download 2010!

Download‘s Main Stage on Sunday is band after band from the days of yore. Instead of those mainly insanely popular bands, DEAD PRESS! decided to cover the more modern and cuttingly new acts on the other stages.

TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED – SECOND STAGE
RATING: 6/10
Today’s second stage seems to be occupying heavyweights for the most part of the day, and Trigger The Bloodshed is one of the earlier performing crafters of this far from radio-friendly style. Though their material is a tad cliché and each song of the set sounds just like the one played before it, the band are rather overpowering onstage. Drummer Max Blunos is smashing cymbals and drum skins like nobody’s business, and whilst frontman Jonny Burgan isn’t stuff made of legends yet hints of potential are there, with his grunts and growls along with his commands for crowd movement and participation are enough to incite the first few moshpits for the second stage crowd.

SUICIDE SILENCE – SECOND STAGE
RATING: 9/10
Things go up a few notches for 5-piece Suicide Silence, pummeling blistering sounds from their PA system speakers to a crowd mainly frenzied in a sea of mosh pits. It’s an odd, rare, but ultimately good thing to see a band this heavy receiving such a positive sing back to this song; especially seeing as it’s difficult to interpret whatever the fuck Mitch Lucker is screaming his lungs out about. New album offering ‘Wake Up’ is welcomed by a sea of headbangers and kids screaming the words “Wake up! Wake up!” right back in the band’s faces. The final detonation of ‘No Pity For A Coward’ is a clear realization as to how heavy and respected this band is right now, with the field becoming a minefield of circle pits, and almost everyone in the first few rows watching the spectacle before them yelling “Seconds from the end / What’s it gonna be? / Pull the trigger bitch!”, and at times even overpowering the volume from the stage sound system.

PULLED APART BY HORSES – TUBORG STAGE
RATING: 7/10
Being pulled apart by horses isn’t an activity anyone would find fun at all, so it’s a good thing a band of the same name aren’t in any area of torture. Their fun and erratic stage performance is entertaining enough to watch if you aren’t a fan of their sound. Whether they’re jumping off speakers, getting people in the crowd to high-five one another, announcing to the crowd their drunk and encouraging others to join them, or jumping from the stage and down to the barrier to see their fans, Pulled Apart By Horses made their set more than just about the music. Frontman Tom Hudson even jumps over the barrier and parties alongside the audience during set closer ‘I Punched A Lion In The Throat’; a random yet amusing song title which only enforces the strange style these Yorkshire boys put across.

FEI COMODO – RED BULL BEDROOM JAM STAGE
RATING: 8/10
Probably reeling in one of the biggest crowds to the Red Bull Bedroom Jam tent all weekend, Fei Comodo‘s energetic alternative rock/post-hardcore style sees crowd participation from start to finish. Lead vocalist Marc Halls is jumping from speakers, hanging from the side stage supports, and coming up to the crowd barrier at any appropriate opportunity. The constant crowd surfing on top of this shows a band who truly connect and involve the crowd in a show which should see this band on a bigger and more appropriate stage for them. Songs like ‘Break The Ice’ has every word sung right back to the band too, showing a following and dedication that many bands in their position find hard to obtain.

TRIVIUM – SECOND STAGE
RATING: 9/10
For a band who’s big jump start into international touring and success was all down to their first appearance at this festival, it seems only fitting that Trivium are placed as second stage headliners for the Sunday, and therefore closing the festival weekend. Since those few years ago the band have garnered two more studio albums under their belts, and a hell of a lot of experience live on multiple tours across the world. The combined dual guitar onslaught from Matt Heafy and Corey Beaulieu is stronger and tighter than ever, and though the nature of the band’s solos are rather complex they seem to flow as easy and sharp as if they were to play any old riff. Between a set of ‘Like Light To Flies’, ‘Fugue’ and ‘Pull Harder On The Strings Of Your Martyr’, Matt is constantly thanking and sending his appreciation to the supporting crowd, even stating “this is proof, if we can make it then any one of you can. Whether you want to be a lawyer or a doctor, you can do it” to a much deserved applause, and even dedicates ‘Anthem (We Are The Fire)’ to the thousands of people watching them. With several mosh pits being dotted in all places across the field, Heafy‘s constant gasps of “Oh my god!” not only sums how they feel about their feedback of this set, but also how the crowd feels about Trivium – a great end to a fucking rocking weekend!
