A few words about The Nosferatu and their first coming to Athens-Greece!
There are some bands that Ι grew up with but didn’t have the opportunity to catch live on stage, back in the days when they released the iconic albums that oriented the goth rock scene or rather goth rock music… (The) Nosferatu is definitely one of them!
After their long awaited return and their recent successful gig in London-UK, the only thing that I had in mind was to see this band live on stage…
My excitement can’t be described with words, when these Goth Rock legends announced their first coming to Temple Athens live venue!
They managed to gather over 200 excited fans (confirmed from the club), overwhelmed with nostalgia and an appetite for top class atmospheric, uncompromised gothic rock. The fans eagerly showed their appreciation by storming the band’s almost sold-out merch-stand (credis to merch-girl Μαίρη).
Their sound was very clear and solid building a haunting atmosphere of pure dark goth …as it should always be. Louis DeWray is still one of the best and most charismatic singers of the Goth scene with an out-of-this-world vocal range and a captivating stage persona…..
The same goes for Vlad Janicek, the living Vampire, whose bass lines and style are impeccable.
Rob Leydon, with the look of a Victorian gentleman, is the best guitar choice for the Nosferatu and one of the best British guitarists, while Chris Clark’s powerful yet technical drumming transforms the band’s live sound into a sonic attack!
The band also features a female vocalist on stage, the fantastic Anastasia Resurrection, whose ethereal singing made the atmosphere even more eerie.
The playlist consisted of much loved Goth-hymns from “Rise” & “Legend” and three new spectacular songs that prove the band’s dedication to achieving Goth excellence once again…
There is only one Nosferatu out there, THE NOSFERATU… the ORIGINAL one, the composers of the songs that made us proud to call ourselves GOTHS!
