Metal Montag: Funeral for a Friend
by Guest Blogger
Schieße mate! We’ve barely recovered from the ruination that was last month’s letlive. gig (black eye and severe neck trauma), and now the 40th largest minority in Berlin can rejoice as Welsh screamo legends Funeral For A Friend are back in town to remind us exactly how old we are.
Earlier this year, FFAF released their crunchy sixth album, Conduit, on which they avoid stagnation while cocking an occasional glance back at their hardcore roots. Basically, riffs. RIFFS! Here they are rockin’ a song from said record in Berlin earlier in the year:
Did we mention riffs?
It’s also the tenth anniversary of their landmark debut, Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation (CDADIC), AND next month their long out-of-print demo EP, Between Order And Model (BOAM) is being remastered and re-released. Here is a reminder of how cool people looked in 2002:
Main support comes courtesy of righteous Brighton punkers, Gnarwolves, who are bloody brilliant and super nice lads to boot. Lubricating the mosh are fellow metal Brits, POLAR. Capital letters. Full stop. Wicked.
FFAF will be playing songs from CDADIC, BOAM and more this Wednesday at Magnet Club, Falckensteinstraße 48, 10997 Berlin, starting at beer o’clock.
