TesseracT @ Rumours Rock City

TesseracT

April 29th, Rumours Rock City: the mighty TesseracT came to blow us away.

Joined by three awesome local acts, this show promised to be amazing, and it was. There were, however, some minor technical issues. Rumours Rock City is a fantastic venue, with great beer and food and an awesome stage, but power to the stage cut out multiple times during the evening and one of the speakers kept turning off during the last few songs of TesseracT’s set. Despite these issues, it was still an enjoyable evening and Rumours remains one of South Africa’s top live venues.

Only Forever opened up the evening with their melodic brand of metalcore and they did a hell of a good job. Everything about their performance was on point, from the excellently executed vocals to the tight instruments. The power went out during one of their songs and they carried on singing and one should respect that.

Red Helen were next. I always enjoy watching superb musicianship and Red Helen is no exception: tight, technical and terrific. My only gripe was the occasional pitchy clean vocals, which can be forgiven, as the technical difficulties didn’t allow them to have a sound check. Overall a great performance by Red Helen.

Next up was Deity’s Muse. They performed an excellent set and they were super tight. Their brand of groovy hard rock, while excellent, did not seem to fit in with the other bands’ technical and progressive elements. Nonetheless, they put on an excellent show.

Last but not least. TesseracT. Wow. What an excellent performance. With bands that have clean vocals there is always a concern about the quality of the live performance. This was no problem for TesseracT, as Daniel Tompkins nailed the vocals live. The progressive instrumentation was absolutely mind blowing and show sounded as though I was listening to the album – the quality was that good. A friend┬ánoted the guitarists’ lack of pedals and it was interesting to see that they routed the instruments through a laptop, making use of automation to switch effects. What a great show. My only complaint (and this is not necessarily the band’s fault) is that I really, really wanted a TesseracT shirt and the biggest size they had was a large. I’m 6’5″ and large definitely would not fit.

Overall a great evening – thanks to Duncan Bell and his team at Turning Tricks Entertainment for organising, yet again, an amazing show.
