O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, London
Rated 5 out of 5 by Doran from IAMXellent! The haze of heat rising from the audience mingled with a waft of dry ice flowing from some point behind the stage. Light scatters creating multi-coloured silhouettes intermixed with dark shadows and four simple lights mark out IAMX in blue. The show hasn't even started yet and there's an undercurrent of excitement amongst the crowd that's rising with each passing minute, the mix tape playing heightens this with tracks by Fluke and Orbital. Then darkness, the band are on - IAMX implies the power of one however here are four with a sound of more. Cheers meet them and the music starts... One and a half hours later, an encore and a want of more the audience disburses into the night - no doubt with ears still ringing and adrenaline pumping.
