Just witnessed your best live gig?.. send us a review!

Hull Asylum, 3 October 2008

OK, so the Asylum stage is once again occupied by a rather interesting act, Enter Shikari.

Enter Shikari consist of four lads from St Albans city, just north of London, a relatively new band to the music scene with only one full album 'Take to the Skies' under their belts, therefore available material to play was relatively limited, although it was clear they were confident and enthusiastic about what they were performing.

Although the gig was not a sell out, Enter Shikari gained a good response from the fans and the supporting acts proved to be quite popular. The band put on a good energetic show communicating well with their younger audience.

Their music appears to be a bold attempt to possibly unite different tastes in genre, Enter Shikari are a brave mixture of happy hardcore with grunge metal or as they call it 'Hardcore punk'.

The heavy bass line and screaming lyrics appeared to impress the audience, who generally all fitted into the age category of under 16s. There was not so much diversity at this gig as at others which have been at Asylum, mostly young emos and scene kids.

Concerning this bands future, I find it difficult to see where they could go. All due respect to them for trying to unite two forms of music, but the audiences may be way to divided to come together for Enter Shikari.
