Saxon, one of the forefathers in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, hit the House of Blues on Sunset and showed LA that they’ve still got it.
Local favorites Armored Saint, celebrating their new Win Hands Down album, kicked out a powerful set of songs for their hometown, both new and old.
Sabaton’s showmanship won the crowd straight away. Fans sang along while singer Joakim Brodén’s antics and ear-to-ear smile energized the audience as the band worked the stage, pulling out all the stops.
Iced Earth opened with “Plagues of Babylon”. After its ominous, building intro, guitarists Jon Scaffer and Troy Seele virtually shook the audience by the scruff of the neck while drummer Jon Dette battered the room with rhythmic mayhem. Vocalist Stu Block manned the microphone with authority, frequently belting out high-register screams reminiscent of Rob Halford (Judas Priest). The moving “If I Could See You” from Plagues of Babylon provided contrast in the heavy set. “Boiling Point” followed, putting the wicked, almost foreboding vibe back into the air.
On the L.A. stop of the “Worldwide Plagues Tour”, Tampa’s power metal vets Iced Earth and Sweden’s Sabaton, performed for a fully-packed House of Blues in Hollywood.
Boston recently had the pleasure of welcoming Glasgow-hailing post-rock giants, Mogwai. Having never witnessed a band of their caliber or unique sound live, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had been to many instrumental performances before – jazz, classical, progressive – but I knew this was going to be different.
