Motionless in White’s Graveyard Shift Tour rolled into Norwich on Sunday night, to wrap up their UK stint.
A packed venue of ghoulish guys and gals were treated early to Ice Nine Kills, who opened the show with their fiery theatricore, which is basically metalcore but with dark cinematics. ’Communications of the Cursed’ and ‘Enjoy Your Slay’ went down a treat with the audience, as did the closing ‘Me, Myself and Hyde’, and the Boston quartet left to a rapturous applause.
Up next came the reason why Head for the Barricade went to the Norwich Waterfront, as recent special guests on our show Cane Hill took to the stage.
Promoting their brilliant new record ‘Too Far Gone’, the New Orleans mob blitzed through the crushing ‘Time Bomb’, ‘Lord of Flies’ and ‘It Follows’, as the crowd quickly started getting into proceedings.
Tracks from the bands’ debut album ‘Smile’ followed, with the choice cuts being ‘True Love’ and ‘Ugly Model Mannequin’, before Cane Hill returned to their newer stuff- in particular the stunning ‘Erased’ and the the title track from album number two.
Witt led from the front, constantly engaging with the crowd, asking for more energy and action- and the audience responded in kind.
We might be biased, but Cane Hill stole the show tonight and it was great to see them in the club environment, but we must mention Motionless in White, who pleased the near capacity crowd with their gothic metalcore tunes such as ‘Rats’, ‘Necessary Evil’, ‘Hatefuck’ and ‘A-M-E-R-I-C-A’.
The tour now rolls across Europe, but we’re pretty sure that everyone who has ventured out for the UK shows have left with a smile on their face, and Cane Hill especially with a few more fans to add to their arsenal.
