Eclipse... Rock music's best kept secret!
We caught Eclipse a the Rescue Rooms in Nottingham. After squeezing in the doors due to a late arrival from the evil called work, we were greeted to a packed out venue, (maybe Rock City would be a better choice next time) and half-way through the set of another great up and coming band 'One Desire'. These are well worth checking out and have produced a strong debut Album. On to Eclipse,.. they entered the stage one by one with Phil Crusner thumping out an extended intro to the strains of 'Vertigo' whipping the crowd into a frenzy along with the awesome opening riff from guitarist Magnus Henriksson. The atmosphere and delivery of each of the band's great melodic metal setlist was perfect, with energetic frontman Erik Mårtensson, getting the crowd batting back the infectional chorus lines at stupid decibels, this guy's melody's and characterful, rangey singing voice is exceptional and each song is proving to my ears to be some of the best rock music I've listened to for decades. A mention must go out to the incredible musicianship of this band. From the thumping talents both technically a visually of Phil Crusner (this guy is so cool!) along with the intertwining, great backbone bass of Magnus Ulfstedt, (love the Nikki Sixx look!). Magnus Henriksson's absolutely incredible riffs and lead guitar, topped off with awesome talent of energetic frontman Erik made for one of the best gigs I've seen for a long time... so good we went to Bristol too. Guess what... still awesome. Thanks for the music and thanks for 2 cracking shows.
