Vorchaos @ Kichijoji Crescendo, January 12th 2014
It’s been a little over a year since I last shot Vorchaos. In that time they’ve released their fantastic album “Vortex of Chaos”, celebrated with a sold out show at Harajuku’s Astro Hall, and have continued to hold packed out shows as more and more people pick up on them.
Starting 2014 with a show at Kichijoji’s Crescendo, Vorchaos were playing alongside Another Stream and Melodic Death Metal headliners Gyze. Vorchaos tore straight through their album from start to finish and left the crowd shouting for an encore. With an infectious energy and stage presence, they are never a band you can get bored of seeing, (and I say that as someone who has gone to see them pretty much every show since I first saw them a year and half ago). As they continue to play live they keep placing the bar higher and harder for themselves and it’s going to be a pleasure to see them continue to grow as a band.
Let’s hope 2014 sees Vorchaos playing some bigger venues, and further afield. They are definitely a band to look out for in the forthcoming year, and I’m sure you’ll get to see them on these pages again soon.
“Vortex of Choas” is available through HMV, Disk Union and Tower Records in Japan and at gigs! Pick up a copy if you get the chance!
