Fall is here, which means Halloween isn’t far behind. Enter the Trinity Of Terror Tour, featuring Motionless in White, Ice Nine Kills, and Black Veil Brides (with supporting band We Came as Romans)! I can’t think of a better show to celebrate this seasonal transition.
On Sunday September 18, the final show of leg two of the Trinity of Terror tour was held in Cincinnati Ohio at the Andrew J Brad Music Center. This tour takes the biggest acts in metalcore and gives them equal billing. The fans were pumped and packed into the venue ready to scream along to their favourite songs.
First up was the band We Came as Romans. What a way to begin the night! These guys gave it their all from the start and the crowd ate it up. Between the heavy riffs and awesome stage jumps, it was such an amazing set and the band was smiling the whole time. Definitely a band that should be on your radar if they aren’t already.
Next on stage was Motionless in White. To say this band is fierce is a massive understatement. Their sound continues to get heavier and their lyrics are so haunting yet deeply thought provoking. This is especially true of their new album “Scoring the End of World.” Fans went wild throughout the entire set, screaming along, moshing, and crowd surfing non stop. Singer Chris Motionless expressed his gratitude often and even tossed some roses to the crowd as he walked off stage. Be sure to check them out anytime they play near you. No excuses, do it!
Third up was Ice Nine Kills, any horror fanatics favourite band. Their stage theatrics are unmatched and the song title puns always make me smile. Don’t be surprised if you see limbs go flying or heads get chopped off. Singer Spencer Charnas does an amazing job acting out each psychotic character. Fans couldn’t get enough of the band’s constant crowd interaction and could be heard screaming their heads off the whole time (which may be used as future stage props). I can’t recommend checking out an Ice Nine Kills show enough, but only if you dare!
Rounding out the night was Black Veil Brides. This show was not only the last show of the tour, but also in singer Andy Black’s hometown. The crowd was already riding high and BVB made sure they stayed that way through their set. As with the other bands, lots of moshing and lyric screaming to be heard. The whole band could be seen smiling from ear to ear between songs. Don’t miss this band and their amazing style next time they come your way. Part three of the Trinity of Terror tour was just recently announced and trust me, you won’t want to miss this phenomenal lineup.
