The Italian Gothic Metal band Lacuna Coil performed at The Machine Shop Concert Lounge in Flint on Wednesday. Singer Cristina Scabbia looked hauntingly beautiful in her black lace and sounded truly amazing, belting out notes with ease. The band is currently touring the U.S. in support of their 7th studio album entitled Broken Crown Halo. It is such a treat to see huge bands from the EU play these tiny intimate venues like The Machine Shop, which has a capacity of 550 people.
Also performing at the Shop was Cilver, Eve to Adam and Kyng. Kyng's rockin' performance really stole the show. This hard rock stoner metal trio out of southern California has a new and refreshing rock sound. Singer Eddie Veliz killed it on vocals, his range and tone really compliment the power of this trio. Kyng just released their 2nd album the day before this show. Its getting rave reviews already and it's bringing them back to the area soon! They will be back at the Machine Shop May 15th, opening for Kill Devil Hill (Rex from Pantera). Kyng will also will be performing at the huge Rock On The Range Festival in Ohio next month.
All the bands were hanging out at their merch booths after the show, taking pictures and signing CDs. Everyone was so kind and sweet, make us "fans" LOVE these bands that much more! Good times always at the Shop!
