FRIDAY the 13th - always a good day to lay on a metal show with undertones of goth and schlock horror...and Friday September 13th is when Motionless in White, Defiled and Glamour of the Kill arrive at the Mandella Hall for a triple header over 14s show.
Motionless in White have been a bit of an enigma, emerging from metalcore roots with goth leanings they have evolved into a more complex beast, with last year's album 'Infamous' showcasing a more diverse set of heavy influences.
Heavily marketed and with reports on their ability to translate recorded intricacies to the live setting Motionless in White have been receiving positive reviews from the likes of Metal Hammer amongst others.
Backing them up are Defiled, who have appeared in Belfast before, albeit on a mis-matched bill that didn't allow for their industrial metal sound to resonate. This line-up seems more suited to their sound and vibe.
Completing the line-up are Glamour of the Kill, who - rather hilariously - on their wikipedia entry are described as "post-hardcore, metalcore, glam punk", which is a shame really because there is a lot more to their sound than these 'narrow' categorizations.
Tickets - priced £14 (excl booking fee) go on sale this Friday (June 21st) from the usual outlets
