Venue: Fillmore NY (New York, NY)
Opener: Senses Fail, Haste The Day, Brokencyde

The Hollywood Undead is a group that while around for a couple of years, seem to have made their biggest stride in the few months that led up to tonight’s fun. The show would be at The Fillmore and feature a wide genre scoping assortment of openers which included Brokencyde, Haste The Day and Senses Fail. Out of the lot of them I had only seen Haste The Day before when they toured at this same venue a little over a year or so ago with From Autumn To Ashes. At the time I was not much for the Screamo-Metalcore vibe at all, but had grown a little more used to it since that time and was interested in seeing how the group had changed since that initial time. My overall curiosity would be to see just what the fuss was over these masked men called the Hollywood Undead. Here is how the event went down at the sold out Fillmore NY in case you missed it.

Brokencyde: My friend and I arrived during the bands second song and I had to admit that I was immediately disinterested by what they were doing. I had heard the bands name from an issue of Metal Edge magazine which labeled them as one of the worst bands in Metal and to be honest there was not much Metal going on for this set. It was like being at one of the MTV amateur hours where the up and comers do their thing for applause or prizes. I wasn’t into it, and yet the partial crowd seemed to like them. I guess there is something for everyone out there. I am not sure what the future holds for a group like Brokencyde since Emo meets Rap meets Pop is rather a hard sell these days. Calling it “Crunk Core” might be unique in some sense but fortunately their set was short and Haste The Day was coming up next. Folks who did like this kind of thing should watch for the group’s album “I’m Not A Fan But The Kids Like It” which can be ordered from them via their MySpace.

From Autumn To Ashes @ Fillmore at Irving Plaza (4/20/2007)

We were asked to cover the appearance of From Autumn To Ashes and Haste The Day and admittedly were not too up on the bands. We sadly missed a couple of the openers but documented the two main acts in words and photos. Those who wish to see more can scroll past the logo 🙂

I have to start this piece by saying that the visceral cacophony that is the “Screamo” genre has never really been my cup of tea. While a fan of some of the most brutal Metalcore bands on the circuit, I still have to find something in this genre that gets me. This would make tonight’s performance of the bands From Autumn To Ashes and Haste The Day a little more difficult to observe as opposed to that which is Metal and more my forte. Tonight, the attending audience and their reactions to the goings on would be my best guide to formulate the words you are now reading. The gig would be at Irving Plaza which is now going by The Fillmore NY, and this would be my first time in the venue with the new name. As I walked in I was greeted with “Welcome to the Fillmore” and I admit that I was a tad surprised at this. I had no idea that a change in ownership had transpired, but better it remained a venue as opposed to something else. The two Metalcore acts would be a co-headliner and the openers for the event would be Maylene & the Sons Of Disaster, Alesana and Twelve Gauge Valentine.
