Money for a
new pet shelter.
For Free is an event, which was hosted by DeadlineBooking Switzerland. At
the moment, the animal protection of both Basel (TbS) needs money for a
new pet shelter. For this reason it was decided to collect money on a show
with For Dawn, Coilcry and Silent Circus
for the purpose of a donation.
was free entry and personally I think it’s a good thing. For this reason
I visited the Rockbar. And finally such events are rare, because it’s
associated with the current global economic crisis.
was in front of the location on 7:00 PM and could watch the sound check.
Actually, For Dawn should’ve started on 8:00 PM but they were on stage 30
minutes later. They did a show at this year’s Metalfest with acts like
W.A.S.P and Behemoth a short time ago.
mixture of Hardcore and Metalcore was well received by the crowd. The
applause was awesome. Singer Daniel Al-Hasani reminded optically a little
bit of “The Dude” from the movie “The Big Lebowski” and convinced
with a first class vocal number. Another asset was the sound engine,
because their songs never sounded as powerful as tonight. “Blood Honour
Destiny” was introduced as a new track on the end of their great show.

was looking forward to Coilcry.
The band got a new bass player called Reto Hartmann (after his predecessor
Dominique Anceschi left the band) and the last year was used for writin’
new songs and learnin’ them for the production of the record. Well, the
Basel guys are back with new energy and the crowd got to know that soon. A
lot of new songs were introduced after the obligate “Papa Loves Mambo”
intro by Perry Como. These tracks helped singer Alex Büche, guitar player
Sandro Gysin, guitar player Joachim Lötscher, bass player Reto Hartmann

Fan Hans Bierbaum felt this vibe in such an intensive way, that he decided
to do a funny strip session, which caused much laughter. Even a circle pit
was achieved, the first one after eight years at a
Coilcry show. Singer Alex Büche announced that their second record
gets recorded in Hamburg, Germany. For this reason they’ll spend three
weeks over there. “Strength Beyond Fear” became the last track and Coilcry
said goodbye from the crazy crowd. Honestly, you must admit that these
guys are stronger than ever!

went on stage as headliner at a late hour. The Modern Metal act is very
hot right now and released a strong debut. I never heard of ‘em and felt
very skeptical. But my worries were uncalled for, because they handled it
like professional musicians. Their music reminded of Atreyu and Killswitch
Engage and it wasn’t only guitar tunes of Sascha Maksymov and Marco
Puglisi but also Peter Haller’s vocals, who reminded of Atreyu singer
left the stage after the regular show time. However, they had to get back
on stage again and put down the gas pedal one more time after encore
shouts. That happened with “The End of Heartache” a Hit single by
American Metalcore band Killswitch Engage. Then it was over and Silent
Circus could enthrall me. You gotta keep an eye on this band!
