Review of the show in Anaheim:
"Unfortunately, there was an hour wait for Carach Angren, due to missing equipment and miscommunication. Yet, the crowd was waiting patiently with no qualms on the matter. Everyone was conversing away. Something told me the heavy anticipation of Carach Angren finally playing the States had very much to do with it. And right at 8:20, Carach Angren came out to a roaring crowd, arguably the most passionate reaction of the night. Having made strides in the past couple of years, it was easy to see how huge the response was. Off their latest release, Where the Corpses Sink Forever, “Lingering in an Imprint Haunting” was met with screams, lyric recitals, and large pits. Their symphonic black metal sound was massive, hypnotizing and, most importantly, crystal clear. The keyboards of Ardek and vocalist/guitarist Seregor were on point, something I feel is lost with most keyboard live settings. The level of sound and serenity made for an astonishing story read to you in a pure, terrifying and joyful music form. On top of that, Seregor’s vocals were masterful, specially the narrative lyric trait that truly makes them shine more than many. Expressive, full of story and charismatic, Seregor told the lyrics in a beautiful way that had many in pure paralyzing awe. No slouch in his department, Namtar’s intense blasting caused the audience to react with mosh pits every time. Not ignoring their earlier material, two songs off their debut, Lammendam, were played, to a joyful and rowdy audience. Sadly, their set was only 5 songs instead of 6 due to the time constraits of the hour delay. The crowd gave it their all for the closing song, “Bitte Tötet Mich”, followed by a demanding encore chant. The band took pictures for anyone in the crowd after the show, which is always a plus. Sometimes, a band so powerful on album could lack on the live setting, but tonight was not the case for Carach Angren. A headlining tour could easily be in the works for them, and with Syrebris, Carach Angren also stole the show."
After the show in Phoenix, Ardek was interviewed by Miguel from The Age Of Metal. Check out the article and video below!
