Review & Photos by Anders Sandvall
Tenebre opened for the new Swedish industrial metal band Deathstars at
KB. This band is one in a line of bands from Malmö, Sweden. Tenebre has
been around for a long time (since 1996).The band has changed members
quite a lot and even the music
has shifted. Now the band seems to be stable.
Richard Lion - bass
Victor Fradere - lead vox
Fredrik Täck - guitar
Peter Mårdklint - guitar
Andreas Albin - drums
Their fourth record is ready but not released. The music is much like
Paradise Lost but more metal / heavier / darker and they have guitar
A big audience had gathered at KB to listen to Tenebre. The band entered
the scene and gave full gaze. The record isn’t released but they played
mostly new songs. The new singer in the band, Victor, was the only one
who moved around but there wasn’t that much room on stage. Victor is a
great personality on stage and he has a huge voice-register. His voice
suits their music. It was a clever move to let him join the band.
Fredrik/Peter made a big impression on the guitar and Andreas on drums
is really good. Richard looked really mean with a white face but he
played much better than his face looked.
My personal favorites were ”Electric Hellfire Kiss” and ”Alienation”. But
I also liked ”Beauty Destroyed” where Andreas and Victor impressed
lot. During the 30 minutes they played 6 new songs and one old. The old
one was ”Tombola Voodoo Master”.
With the new direction of the band I feel that they can go really,
really far but they have to have the right people behind them. A
brilliant warm-up act to Deathstars and a taste of what we can expect in
the near future. This is the first time for me to see them properly live
and they impressed me a lot as well.
After the summer, watch out Europé, for their fourth record ”Electric
Thanks to the band for everything, and thanks as always to KB for
keeping the metal pride alive here in Malmö, Sweden.
