Concert Review: Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, After The Burial, & Vein In San Francisco, CA

Last night (April 18), I caught Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, After The Burial, and Vein on the first date of the “Collapse The World Tour” and it was an awesome show.

Vein kicked off the night with a heavy and chaotic set that left members of the audience mesmerized. The band goes hard with piercing screams, high jumps, and full on hardcore insanity. A highlight from their set was “Virus://Vibrance.”

Once Vein finished up, it was time for After The Burial to take the stage. The progressive metallers powered through a ferocious set with impeccable musicianship and killer vocals. The crowd was going crazy as the group prepared them for the impending co-headliners. Highlights from their set included “Behold The Crown” off their new album “Evergreen,” which was released today (April 19), and “A Wolf Amongst Ravens.”

Soon it was time for Parkway Drive to storm the stage. The Australian metalcore giants were perhaps the strongest act of the night. Their set consisted of mostly newer material from their 2018 album “Reverence” and their 2015 album “Ire” with several older songs thrown in for good measure. The band’s catchy riffing and thunderous drums had everyone moving as frontman Winston McCall led the charge with an unmatched intensity. Highlights from their set included: “Vice Grip,” “Wild Eyes,” “Crushed,” “Bottom Feeder,” and the haunting “Cemetery Bloom.”

After Parkway Drive, it was time for the metalcore titans in Killswitch Engage to close out the evening. The band played a pretty balanced set with songs spanning their 20 year career and the crowd loved every second of it. Between guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz hilarious onstage antics and Jesse Leach’s powerful vocals, it was entertaining the whole way through. Highlights from their set included: “My Curse,” “My Last Serenade,” “Hate By Design,” “Always,” which was dedicated to a fan named Chopper who is sadly battling terminal brain cancer, and “Strength Of The Mind.”

All in all, it was an amazing show and if you have a chance to make it to one of the dates on this tour it will definitely be worth your while.

After The Burial Premiere New Song “Exit, Exist”

After The Burial have premiered a new song titled “Exit, Exist.” This track is from the band’s new album “Evergreen,“ which will be released on April 19.

Anthony Notarmaso commented:

“When I write songs they can sometimes not have an ideal, no concept or thoughts to begin them. It’s a blank space or more like a blacked out empty space. What works for me is I just relax and let my mind take over. I let whatever pictures or little movies form inside my head and play out. ‘Exit, Exist‘ started with a shape of a person looking at its arms and hands and then looking in towards the area of its chest. The chest had a small glow inside it and this person would reach inside its body and try to pull this little light out to examine it.

To me, it was a metaphor for a soul-searching human, a human that questions life, its own morals, meaning and existence. A person that wants to learn and be the best version of itself, but also a person that is flawed and vulnerable to becoming unfulfilled and lost in existence. That’s how the chorus became and the concept of the song. Those lines and those pictures were the foundation on which the rest was built. Enjoy!”

After The Burial Premiere “Behold The Crown” Music Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Evergreen”

After The Burial have premiered a new video for their new song “Behold The Crown.” This track is from the band’s new album “Evergreen,” which will be released on April 19.

“Evergreen” Track Listing:

01. “Behold The Crown”
02. “Exit, Exist”
03. “11/26”
04. “In Flux”
05. “Respire”
06. “Quicksand”
07. “The Great Repeat”
08. “To Challenge Existence”
09. “A Pulse Exchanged”

Guitarist Trent Hafdahl said the following about the album:

“The song-writing process is almost always the same, but the influence and motivation behind the music is always different. This time around we wrote an album that is wholeheartedly ATB. If you listen back through our catalog you can hear us experimenting with different sounds, soundscapes, playing techniques etc. Some of those have stood the test of time and are still used in our music today, and some were left behind because they didn’t really fit us.

I feel very strongly that this album is OUR sound. Our fans could hear this anywhere, without any reference, and say ‘that sounds like an After The Burial riff.’ I guess you could say it’s a more mature release this time around because we weren’t stretching to experiment with stuff that we didn’t know would work. It’s heavy, it’s melodic, it’s slow at times and fast at others. It’s intense and free-flowing all in the same instance.”
