Reflection Of Darkness Gig Review

Reflection Of Darkness posted a review from our Electrixmas gig.



AUTODAFEH was started in November 2007 by two childhood friends; meanwhile the line-up has been completed by third member Anders and in November 2008 they released their debut ‘Hunt for Glory’ and the next record; an EP entitled ‘re:lectro’ is scheduled for an early 2009 release. That same year, to be exact in January, they’ll play some live shows in support for pioneering EBM act FRONT242. AUTODAFEH are Mika, Jeppe and Anders.

Music & Performance
EBM is long not dead. In fact there is more or less a revival of Old-School EBM during the last years as bands like SPETSNAZ or JÄGER 90 prove. AUDODAFEH are no exception in this list presenting their electronic tunes in the manner you would expect: keyboard on one side, drum pads on the other one and in the middle the singer. Except from the very first song of the evening – ‘Anger & Hate’ which was available as free download – all presented song were out off the album ‘Hunt for Glory’.

Even though you might first compare AUTODAFEH with bands like FRONT242, they are going their own way with much diversified compositions. The songs are catchy and very powerful what made people in front of the stage move from the very beginning. As for the performance, there is surely space for improvement with a little more action on stage. And let me just add, a little less smoke on stage is sometimes better than too much… But all in all, a band you should keep in mind!

01. Anger & Hate
