TITLE: Every Time I Die

VENUE: Manchester Club AcademyREVIEW: Mikey Baird

WHAT better way to spend a Halloween evening than being thrown around in a mosh-pit by a man dressed as the Marshmallow Man, while a sea of zombies, werewolves and ghouls fly over your head.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, this is Halloween – Halloween EVERY TIME I DIE style.

The Buffalo, New York quintet explode onto the stage for 45 minutes of an intense mix of hardcore/metal and Southern Rock and the crowd lap it up!

Guitarists Jordan Buckley, brother of bearded singer Keith, and Andy Williams throw themselves around the stage and into the crowd, at one point putting on werewolf masks thrown from the crowd.

How apt that this is the time they decide to they play their party song ‘We’rewolf’, a song celebrating a night of full on debauchery.

It’s the third time Every Time I Die have hit these shores this year, on their never ending tour cycle promoting last album ‘Ex-Lives’ and the band play a few choice cuts from that record as well as dipping into their deep back catalogue and to the joy of the crowd mainly stay in the heavier parts.

Singer Keith Buckley is in fine form, joking with the crowd and making everyone feel that they are part of the biggest underground party on earth!

I leave the gig battered and bruised, everyone around is grinning from ear to ear at what they have just witnessed unfold.

Tonight it was the best underground party on Earth.
