Garden of Delight - ritual dances in an empty room

October 16 2006

The official beginning of the concert from the series "Dark Ritual Dances" from Garden of Delight, as headliners, it was stated in 18:00. Sadly, even at half past seven in the evening, under the already familiar "tyts-tyts-tyts" on the dance floor was attended by only three very young ladies. The audience at the concert was in no hurry.

Left at the scene of popular "ready" band members Doppelganger, were almost in front of an empty room and could hardly have been pleased so cool reception. The Trinity represented by Black Ca T, Flo and Maggoth presented to the audience some new songs from the album Saturnian Rings.

The basis of the album lay members' interest to the Roman god Saturn and its role in medieval alchemic teachings, the lyrics to some songs are inspired by the famous Austrian writer Gustav Meyrink. Group, as well as five years ago continues to play a traditional gothic rock with a number of romantic ballads.

But something this evening not kleilos fun, so the phrase bassist and vocalist Flo: "You, as the funeral came," - in many ways reflects the 40 minutes the band Doppelganger.

Even at ten, nine in the evening, the hall was still dull and boring. Anyone can be photographed with musicians Garden of Delight, but these were still less than the musicians themselves. The three young girls in the neon light was joined by another girl a little older, was somehow quite "rotten".

At nine, the stage carried a microphone stand with bulbulyatorom, and soon appeared and the group C-file, which so pleased me at last year's «Synthetic Snow Festival». Funny and catchy guys were as usual in his style, dressed for the young cadets. From the first minutes of the boys tried to light a room for its unflinching EBM in Russian. Alas, the fuel that evening there was nothing. Later, beating two-story club "ICRA" I to top performances G arden of Delight is not counted, and a hundred spectators. That evening at the club was in all respects is cool: on the street thermometer showed minus a little warmer and it was in the hall.

Even annealed at full C-file does not stirred the audience not numerous. Having played a very short program, arranging doomsday with fireworks, the band has not performed the main hit, "Rejoice", finally dropping all his tools, left the stage. Well, if C-file does not stir up room that'll be done. Sounded from the speakers hymn Lord Vader could be replaced by a funeral march.

Approximately half of the 11th the hall became difficult to breathe. This technology group Garden of Delight, began to create a mystical atmosphere, shortly before the first floor, the club has been filled with stage smoke. I do not know how the rest of the new arrivals, but here guys obviously overdone. As a man, wearing contact lenses, I have suffered in the first place, and it was difficult to photograph, because at present the premises of the former "Tabula Rasa" can not "boast" cool light installation. Address dear guests from Germany for me was ruined.

Shaw «GoD» in the truncated part of the three men was good, and little room perked up when he heard the familiar notes.The band played a lot of old material, but enough time was given and the latest release «Lutherion I». In darkness and smoke hand movements frontman Artuada seemed even more mysterious and frightening. And his emotional vocals gradually immersed into the abyss of hall dark forces. Due to the circumstances, but rather full of my blindness, I went from the middle of performances.

Instead of a summary. On "Dark Ritual Dances", there is a distinct lack of dancing, but otherwise the event can be placed four.
