Okay, maybe it’s time for Musicalypse to take a break from covering BLIND CHANNEL shows… but come on, what fun would that be? This young band from Oulu is off to a hot start and we’re really curious to follow them and see what happens in the future! Their long-awaited debut album, “Revolutions,” is finally out and they celebrated with a gig at Virgin Oil Co. in Helsinki on October 1st, 2016, and we’re pretty sure this is the start of something great. As such, we headed over to VOC right as the guys were arriving to have a look at the full adventure – arrival, setting up, sound check, and of course, what goes on backstage before a gig!
The band arrived at Virgin Oil shortly before 17:00 and immediately began unpacking. There was a ton to do to get ready, especially since their management had put everything they had into this show to make it great. There were new banner stands to assemble for the first time, a backdrop to hang, fog cannons to set up, LED lights to attach to the drum stand, and of course, the instruments to get ready. It was over an hour before the guys were done getting everything put together. Even better, the fellows from EMBER FALLS, who would be warming up the stage for BLIND CHANNEL that evening, also showed up to hang and help out.
