Overshadowed 08-03-18 (Live @ The Record Crate)

Overshadowed – the band name is a contradiction, they were loud and proud and overshadowed by nothing!

Gig date: 3rd August 2018

Venue: The Record Crate, Glebe, Sydney, Australia

Country of origin: Western Sydney, NSW, Australia

Members: Josh, Subin, Guy, Jim and Nick

Support or headline: Support for Reality Dreaming (Hornsby, Sydney)

Good crowd/bad crowd: Even with it being the bands second only gig (ever), the crowd absolutely loved their set. Admittedly not everyone would have been into the whole screamo/metal scene but they adjusted and seemed to be having a great time headbanging and just being there supporting new music.

Number of times seen band: 1

Crowd participation: As (I said) above, there was lots of headbanging and in addition to that, there was a lot of dancing. Everyone knew the cover songs, so no one was silent. Especially with the song ‘Carrion’. Just goes to show everyone loves Parkway Drive…

Genre: Metalcore

Rating: 7/10 guitars

My review:

  • What a set of lungs Josh has, man oh man!
  • Songs were great
  • LOVED the cover of Carrion, and how much crowd participation there was in that song (I bet you the band loved the participation more than me though?)
  • Very good use of the stage, I was very impressed.
  • Next time, introduce each song before you start singing please, just for new fans (since you’re only just starting out.)

Set List:

  1. State of mind (original)
  2. Remission (original)
  3. Breath (Breaking Benjamin cover)
  4. Carrion (Parkway Drive cover)
  5. End of Heartache (Killswitch engage cover)
  6. Sovereign (original)
  7. Messenger (original)

Summary: Overshadowed are a metal band hailing from Western Sydney, primarily playing Metalcore but also branch out into groove, progressive and good old fashioned thrash. Last night was only their second show and it seemed like they’ve been going for years. Keep it up boy’s, you’ll only get better now 😉

A+ for effort!
