Just witnessed your
best live gig?.. send us a review!
3 October 2008
OK, so the Asylum stage is once again occupied by a rather interesting act,
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'.
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
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.
