Behemoth, Bölzer, Thaw live in Athens @ Fuzz Club 17/4/2015 Raphael Aretakis

I wasn’t actually in a mood to hit the streets, that Friday. Even when I saw the gathered black bunch around FUZZ, it wasn’t enough to lift my spirits!… 

The first band [THAW] that was on at about 9.00, faithful to the black genre, with their doomish screaming vocals, and depressive power tunes. The Polish hooded 4-member band with a straight about 40-minute performance, was great for opening act. 

Setlist 

Last Day
Sun
Aferkingdom
Wasteland
Greed

The crowd started to get warmed up, and the next band was there to stir things up. BOLZER is a two (!) member band, fairly new to the scene but hey, can they rock a joint, or what?! A black metal version of Motorhead (as some folk noted), Okoi Thierry Jones also known as KzR (reference by Encyclopaedia Metalum) has a way of his own, changing from brutal, to echoing howling voices, like wolves in the snow, gave a tremendous atmosphere and mood. Definitely check out their album “Aura”, and of course see them live any chance you get!

Setlist

Soul Eclipse
C.M.E.
new song
The Great Unifier
Entranced by the Wolfshook
Zeus - Seducer of Hearts

 

Hands wormed up, head banged a bit, I was prepped for BEHEMOTH. Not the first time I had seen them, but not in a large venue like FUZZ. I was anxious to see what were all the bits and bobs, that the stage crew was placing strategically, for! No unnecessary delays and out of the shadows and grim lights, three figures, like members of an occult order, appeared! Black hoods, white painted faces, exaggerated face curves, torches at hand as if a ceremony was about to begin! 

Not much can be said about the power that this band has in its music! The crowd went crazy and a couple of mosh pits where formed instantly! Nergal was in his best form, the sound was great, the lighting and effects as they should! 

Great moment when the band changed, just before the encore, into robes and horns, and the dry ice mingled with reddish lights and the heavy riffs of “O Father O Satan O Sun”! I managed to get a few shots of the moment, since I always carry my camera in such events… 

BEHEMOTH gave their best! First rows even got some DNA sample, as well (don’t want to know who’s blood that was!), and of course the great thanks from the band, to the amazing crowd of that night. Special guest was the Devil, who appeared next to the drummer during “At the left hand ov God”. Unfortunately the Pope couldn’t make it…

An amazing night, and one of the best black metal concerts I have seen!

Setlist

Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel
Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer
Conquer All
Decade of Therion
As Above So Below
Messe Noire
Christians to the Lions
Ov Fire and the Void
Ben Sahar
Alas, Lord Is Upon Me

O Father O Satan O Sun!
