Concert Review of Combichrist, Lacrimas Profundere, Vlad In Tears and Controlled Collapse in Munich by Alex Bock


Backstage Werk, Munich, July 25th, 2015


It was Free & Easy day 4 when an interesting line-up stopped at the Backstage Werk.


Controlled Collapse started that evening. They are a 4 piece from Poland. They started out in 2003 and play an industrial/electro sound. I heard them for the first time, even though they aren’t new to the scene and it was fun. Heard some people talking about the set afterwards and they were really impressed by their performance.

That set was followed by two Germany based bands. First Vlad In Tears and then Lacrimas Profundere. Both bands playing an awesome show and both bands well known to the audience.

Vlad In Tears

Lacrimas Profundere

Combichrist were the headliner that evening. I saw them twice now and every time it was a party. I love their live shows. It’s a heavy, energetic show. I felt a little for the drum tech that evening, because Joey, the drummer, constantly threw stuff around. Either it was drum sticks, with which he even hit their guitarist once, or other parts of his drum set, which he constantly through down his riser. So the drum tech almost constantly was somewhere on stage picking up parts of the drum set and putting it together again. Pretty weird. Good quality drums though, ‘cause they at least survived the set.

Like the last show at the Free & Easy I went to, all bands played long sets. Show started at 7.30 pm and ended at 0.15 am.


Next on the schedule is Armored Saint on August 2nd. Stay tuned for pictures and more on that one….
