Ice Nine Kills @ The Belasco Theater – 11/09/2019
Ice Nine Kills knows how to put on a show straight out of every metal and horror fan’s dreams, and its rated IX: for psychos only! The band played a SOLD OUT show at The Belasco Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, along with Awake at Last, Light the Torch, and Fit For a King on Saturday November 11th, and gave their fans a post-Halloween dose of creepy!
In the moments before Ice Nine Kills hit the stage, a large movie rating card was projected onto the curtain, warning the audience that the show they were about to see was not for the faint of heart; rated IX: for psychotic audiences only. When the lights went down and the curtain was lifted, the band appeared dressed as infamous classic horror movie characters. They began their set with a crowd favorite, “Thank God It’s Friday.” Yep, you guessed it, this song is about the one and only Jason Vorhees and don’t forget his mother! Mrs. Vorhees also made an appearance on stage, knife in hand, lending to the spectacular visuals the band utilizes for their performance. Although they played several tracks from their newest album, The Silver Scream (which is about all of your favorite classic horror movies), Ice Nine Kills also played songs from their earlier albums, adding a good balance to their set. They even included a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” about halfway through the show. At the end of the night, it was no surprise that the audience called out for an encore, and the band obliged with “IT Is The End.”
Ice Nine Kills have accomplished much in their fifteen years in the music business, and it is clear why they are enjoying success. They are masters of their craft and they know how to entertain an audience. The Octabe Accelerator Tour featuring Ice Nine Kills is just getting started, and this is a show that is not to be missed!
