Eve To Adam and Killcode Co-headline Webster Hall

New York City band Eve To Adam headlined Webster Hall on May 25th, with local underground rockers Killcode co-headlining and special guest Awaken the Shadow opening up the show. Awaken The Shadow began their set with heavy hitting energy. I was totally digging their music and vibe; they have a raw fresh sound and are a primary example of modern underground metal. Their new lyrical video “Hunter”, which was put together by Shadow Born Group, has been getting a lot of attention.  It’s the first single off of their debut album Life Beyond The Curse. The lyrics for “Hunter” describe an abusive relationship, both physical and mental, something many fans may relate to. With a sound reminiscent to that of bands like Bullet For My Valentine and Bring Me The Horizon, as well as the familiar angst with lyrics of songs like “Hunter”, make it hard to turn away from a band like Awaken The Shadow.

Killcode as always gave the crowd a stellar performance. They opened up with “Slave”, the driving rhythms of this song got everyone’s blood pumping. Fans were ecstatic to see the local rockers live once again. Killcode has spent enough time developing a following in the underground metal scene and are now known for bringing large crowds to venues. As their set went on, they played fan favorites such as “Show Me”, “Hands Up”, “Shot” and as a special surprise Chris Wyse (Owl and Ace Frehley) played his stand up electric bass during “Own It.”  When the song was over, lead singer Tom gave a shout to the Killcode Krew thanking everyone for being present and spreading the “code”. He went on to express his gratitude for the Krew, as without them, none of this would have been possible. Eric Bonesmith then handed his bass to Chris Wyse, and the band went right into “Devil” with Wyse still on stage. At the end of the song Chris Wyse thanked the crowd and said how proud he was of Killcode. They played a few more songs including “Bad Mother” and ended their set with “Kicking & Screaming.” As always, Killcode put on a fun, energetic show, once again proving why they’ve been successful in maintaining their following . This summer Killcode will be touring in Europe alongside legendary metal acts like Slayer and Twisted Sister, with hopes of growing their Krew family overseas.  Make sure to look out for more show postings by following the bands Facebook page.

 
Eve To Adam Hi res 8

This year hard rockers Eve To Adam have come out of the studio with brand new tracks produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Slash, Tremonti, Trivium). Their newest song “Lucky” has hit the air waves on Sirius XM’s  Octane’s “Test Drive” which will also be featured in the film “Fight Valley”, due out this summer in July. The film will be featuring MMA Superstars Miesha Tate, Holly Holm, and Cris Cyborg.

Taki Sassaris (lead vocals), Alex Sassaris (drums) Lawrence Coleman III(guitar) Markus Wells (guitar) Matt Spaker(bass) were all ready to hit the stage, bringing hard and heavy riffs. I saw Eve to Adam a year ago at The Bowery Ballroom and it was an amazing show. Like many other fans at Webster Hall, I was eagerly waiting for them to deliver their powerful sound. They opened up with “Landfill”; the drumming beats, screaming guitars, the darkness, and beaming color spot lights were raising the energy in the room. Lead singer Taki’s interaction with the crowd help the energy in the venue rise to full volume. The crowd was ecstatically singing along. Taki announced that in honor of Memorial Day, the band would like to pay tribute to all the men and women who have served our country, and those who are in the armed services protecting us. The song “Immortal” was dedicated to all of them. The fans were thrilled, singing along as Taki brought forward overpowering emotion. “Emergency”, a new track from the band, was introduced to the crowd. It’s a melodic song that carries a heavy sound with strong conviction. Eve To Adam gives the audience intensity, emotion, and a powerful, heavy rock sound that makes you want to move and feel uplifted. Make sure to attend their next show at Blackthorn 51 in Queens on August 20th!
