Costa Rica-based melodic metal band SIGHT OF EMPTINESS will support AT THE GATES on July 21st at Pepper’s Club in San Jose, Costa Rica.
Commented SIGHT OF EMPTINESS singer Eduardo Chacón: “Chills, goosebumps and lots of great memories…supporting At the Gates in my country? What an honor! They are one of the main reasons why Sight of Emptiness actually exist. The progenitors of the Gothenburg death-metal sound were and are a major influence since day one. No wonder why, our first cover in our very first gig was: “Blinded by Fear”. Can’t wait for July 21st. “The Red In the Sky is Ours”.
Commented SIGHT OF EMPTINESS drummer Rodrigo Chaverri: “We are so thankful and honored to be opening for the band that released many great albums including the influential and genre defining Slaughter of the Soul in 1995. Sharing the stage and hearing those songs live will be surreal experience to say the least.”
This is not be the first time SIGHT OF EMPTINESS was chosen to be the opening act for an international act in Costa Rica. They were previously handpicked by MEGADETH, DARK TRANQUILLITY, OBITUARY, LIVING SACRIFICE and AMON AMARTH to open their shows in the country. In addition, they shared stages with such bands as LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, ARCH ENEMY, TESTAMENT, FIREWIND, NEVERMORE and SCAR SYMMETRY.
