Biffy Clyro – Debaser Medis, October 21st 2010

The Scottish band that has sold out the Wembley Arena came to rock at Debaser Medis, Stockholm. Turned out to be that I had forgotten one band on my list of modern favorites, after this show Biffy Clyro is now close to topping that list!

The support act Airship sounded better then some main acts I have seen before. To bad that I could not be there for their full performance. I can only tell you that they sounded like a good band, for more information I would like to give the link to the Airship MySpace.

The atmosphere before the concert even started was good in the busy venue of Debaser Medis. People were ready to rock and some sang along with Muse that got played during the rebuilding of the stage.

The members of the band came on stage half-naked and started the concert with a bang like a rock-concert should start. Good song after good song got performed and I got goosebumps when they played “Many of Horror”.

It is seldom that I think that a live version is better then the album but this was one of those times. Just the response of the enthusiastic crowd and the quality of the band and of course of the song itself resulted in a very very good, almost uplifting experience.

In between the better rock songs there was a moment of intense emotion when Simon Neil started playing on an accoustic guitar and sang “Machines”. Wow, just wow. Again the perfect voice, the response of the crowd and the whole combination was just how it should be.

Did not get the full set-list for this wonderful concert but the songs that left a big impact on me were:
“Who’s Got A Match?”
“Many of Horror”
“The Captain”

The evening in all was how a rock night should be, good music with intense emotions created by the band and by the crowd itself. A lot of energy and activity and sometimes even aggression in the crowd. Jumping around and getting moved during the same concert. Biffy Clyro is going to be added to my personal favorites.
