STELL/\RIS – 28.04.2022 – Live Music Hall Weiher Mörlenbach

  • by

The STELL/\RIS concert at the Live Music Hall Weiher Mörlenbach was originally planned as a three-band evening, but Pentastone had to cancel at a very short notice due to illness. Unfortunately, no replacement could be found. But that didn’t give the evening a dent. Broken Vein from Weinheim came on stage first. Apart from some technical problem with the samples, you couldn’t tell that it was both the first show with a new bassist and the first since the pandemic broke out. It was a fantastic show and I’m already looking forward to see them again at the Traffic Jam festival.

After a reorganization phase, STELL/\RIS came onto the stage. What energy and activity up there – luckily there’s room in the Live Music Hall. The concert offered everything you need: a circle pit and a wall of death, to which singer Nicol came down from the stage and heated up the audience. There was a quieter moment with Scars, for which mostly only Nicol was on the big stage. But she didn’t seem lost there at all, but managed to completely draw attention to herself with her voice and presence. There was a funny moment when the PA suddenly went out, but the band didn’t notice it at first thanks to their in-ears. The drummer was so engrossed in his playing that he noticed it as last one. He didn’t even see Nicol waving around in front of him to try stop him from playing. So he involuntarily gave us a drum solo, which could be heard very well even without a PA. Almost unplugged. But all in all, it was a very successful evening.

After the show I did a little interview with Nicol in English:

  • How was the show?
  • Amazing, we were quite worried about the people showing up, but they did, which was quite a relief. The moshpit surprised me and it was amazing, even though I got hit during the Wall of Death.
  • How was the reception of the EP?
  • Our friends really liked and appreciated it. The new chapter and era, which we started with it. They where super happy und surprised with Hell-O, but also by the slow Scars. And they weere especially touched by the lyrics of the song.
  • After the EP, are you planning an Album?
  • Yes, we will see how the cooperation with Jonathan Dolese of KonKrete Studios will work out, whith whom we worked on Scars. If everything works as planned, we will be doing it with him next year.
