Breed 77 Live

London Astoria

Sandwiched between industrial overlords Fear Factory and death metal noiseniks Misery Index, the Astoria is probably be the last place in the capital that you’d expect to find Gibraltar’s Breed 77 this evening. Far removed from the delightful mile-a-minute chaos that came before them, their flamenco-tinged tribal metal anthems are tonight awash with a new found confidence and maturity; filling every inch of the cavernous venue and shaking the walls.

The previously mediocre ‘Worlds On Fire‘ and once grating ‘La Ultima Hora‘ now thunder out of the monitors with a renewed sense of purpose, and as the band take leave to the type of approving roar most headline acts could only wish for, it’s clear that with the impending release of their third album Breed may at last be ready to silence their critics once and for all.

Watch this space.
