The Worldonfire, Oceansize @ VK, Brussels

Die Vaartkapoen, known as VK club, is located in quite the dangrous neighborhood, despite the fact that it is 30 mins. by foot away from Brussels' center. When walking the streets of Molenbeek, you barely see any belgian faces. You can hear a police siren every 10 minutes passing by outside. Although we were warned, we still thought it was better to get a hostel nearby, so we could walk to the club.

The club fits about 300 people, yet it was only half-full. VK has been host to bands like QOTSA, Incubus, RATM and Deftones, while upcoming shows in november include Mando Diao, Clutch and Kylesa. The support band, The Worldonfire, seemed quite cool - made up of somewhat emo-looking teenagers with a good sense of rhythm, somewhat post-rock, somewhat melodic, at times kind of screamo vocals and an overall dynamic presence. While I spent my last cash on merch, Oceansize were setting up their instruments. No star business here, these guys take care of themselves. Their tourbus was parked right outside the club, their bass-player was selling the T-shirts and albums before and after the show.



Oceansize rocked us out with a few songs from the upcoming album, two songs from the EP Home & Minor, one from Effloresce, one from Frames and several from Everyone Into Position. I think they diserve to be much, much bigger, and perhaps the place to see them in the right light is the UK. It was way too short, I dont think I've nearly had enough at all...

Абе има си значение, и още как. Не знам защо решиха точно тия парчета, и някакси задоволството ми е половинчато. Дали защото вокалите не са чуваха най-отпред, или защото свириха много кратко - не знам. Но поне опасенията ни, че са се превърнали в пост-рок, се изчерпаха веднага, щом изсвириха първото ново парче от предстоящия албум. Има си рифове, има енергия - очаквам Frames II :)
