[DID NOT ATTEND: May 2, 2023] Spiritbox / After the Burial / Intervals

Spiritbox opened for Ghost on their last tour. I was really impressed by them, mostly because singer Courtney LaPlante has a beautiful delicate voice and then can, on a dime, scream with the best of them.  I don’t necessarily like screamed/growled lyrics, but I love a singer with great range.

They have a broad range of sounds in the band too, with industrial and electronic elements quite prominent.

When we saw them, some fans had travelled a pretty long distance to see just them.

I’d have enjoyed this show but it was sold out even before I heard about it.

After the Burial are a progressive metal band, with a lot of emphasis on the metal.  They have a very growly vocalist, which kind of ruins the impressive intricacies in their music.

Intervals is an instrumental progressive metal band. I prefer my progressive metal to be instrumental because I don’t really like the direction metal vocalists have gone.  Intervals might be a little too perfect, though, being really precise instead of having a good feel.  But I’ve only listened to two songs by them.

[DID NOT ATTEND: April 11, 2022] Animals as Leaders / Intervals

Animals as Leaders is a trio that plays loud, complex progressive metal.

I saw them a few years ago and was blown away.  Although I didn’t like the crowd very much, and wanted to see them again at some point.

Of course, this show conflicted with two other shows the same night and then we went on vacation, so there was not a chance here.

Intervals is a Canadian progressive instrumental metal band. I’m sure I would have liked them as well.

Maybe some other time.
