Concert Review

Tragedy And NanowaR Came Together To Double Their Audiences’ Pleasure

Tragedy: An All Metal Tribute To The Bee Gees And Beyond are back on UK shores this week, with dates in Swansea, Bilston, Manchester, Huddersfield, Grimsby and Guildford, along with appearances at Truck Festival and Y Not Festival.

Back in April and May they co-headlined a tour of the UK and Europe with Italian comedy heavy metal group NanowaR of Steel. We had the pleasure of catching them both at the Brickyard in Carlisle, England, on 21st April.

NanowaR of Steel are a five-piece made up of Potowotominimak on lead vocals, Mr Baffo on co-lead vocals and miscellaneous sounds effects, Mohammed Abdul on guitar, keyboard and backing vocals, Gattopanceri666 on bass, and Unona Raider on drums and backing vocals.

Their set included songs from their latest release – Dislike to False Metal – as well as fan favourites Norwegian Reggaton, Uranus, and Armpits of Immortals.  Even if you weren’t familiar with their music, they were very entertaining.  Their on-stage antics made them the perfect group to share the bill with Tragedy.

This was Tragedy’s first UK/European tour since their most recent line-up change. New guitarist Gibson Ass Freehly and drummer The Infernal Demigibb have dropped the average age of the band, but the quality of the show remains.

Mixing Tragedy classics such as Africa and Tragedy with songs from their latest album – I Am Woman –  the band were on form.  The entertainment value of their skits have not diminished with repeated viewing, and the new skits – necessitated by the personnel changes – were of equally high quality.

If you’re in the vicinity of any of their upcoming dates, or happen to be at Truck Festival and/or Y Not Festival, you could do a lot worse than to see them live.  There’s good reason why they have a devoted fan base who see them at multiple venues when they tour – or at least ensure they go to at least one date every time they visit.
