Emery Concert at Capitol (Perth) Part 2 – Review

Ok after about roughly 2-3 weeks of listening to Emery  was now the time to embrace the experience of the live performence. I have never been to the Capitol before so I personally was excited to go to the Captiol as I’ve had bands I wanted to see there but didn’t end up attending those shows. I can say when I stepped into the venue,  the venue was not big at all, I would say small, probably a bit smaller than a half court basketball court. That’s a good thing as it meant being more closer to the stage and the sound would vibrate and surround the room with the bass a nice touch.

The preshows didn’t catch my eye until the last band played before Emery took stage. That last band before Emery being We Are The Emergency. WATE were muscially quiet welcomed as it drew a decent crowd. WATE musically sounded Post Hardcore but what makes them different was the backing female vocals that extended their vocal ability and the high notes they would play in the verse to break up the harder chourus. The vocalist was extremely audience pleasing as his screamo vocals were a high melody sort of scream that would last quiet a long duration without a break. The future looks very good for this band.

After that unexpected awesome of WATE was time for Emery to deliver. I was standing literally in the second row almost at the front so I could absorb as much riffs as I could. They started off with some of their older material that sounded near perfect that got the crowd roaring and screaming for more. Later onwards they played “The Cheval Glass” as I stated in my previous post was probably there most hardest song. This song being one of their new songs scared the crowd as I sensed a lot of fear ( as most had not heard it) whilst I just loved every bit of it.  Emery decided to lighten things up after that song and played an acoustic set to tone things down with ” I never got to see the west coast”, “Fractions and “The curse of perfect days”. Everyone just felt relaxed and sang along to almost every word. In the closing stages they heated up the last few songs with some of their earlier harder hits and finished off with ” The Wall”. This song got really got the crowd moving as everyone all a sudden were pushing, pulling and screaming along with the vocalist. The keyboard guy decided to join the party with a stage dive which pumped the crowd up even more. The Wall I must say really was a rocking scream feast finish that eveyone wanted.

This concert was an excellent show as WATE was an unexpected show that rocked as well as Emery delivered perfectly to what had been  2-3 weeks of listening to purelyEmery which I do not regret one bit.
