The No Playback metallic competition in Germany is guaranteeing all their acts can be reside and genuine. That means, NO backing tracks or pre-recorded music from any of the bands that hit the stage.
We had been clued into this distinctive gig by the frontman for the German thrash metallic legends Destruction. On Fb yesterday (Jan. 16,) Schmier Fink ranted about bands who use backing tracks, saying that “Many rock acts betray their followers with pre-recorded tracks.” He continued, “Do the followers actually need that? Or do they need honesty and a uncooked reside feeling of actual musicians taking part in actual devices and never computer systems taking part in their fave songs for the hard-earned ticke(t) cash?” Fink wrapped with a requirement. “Play reside or go dwelling … in case you have delight and you’re musician, cease the dishonest!!!”
On the finish of his put up, Schmier shared a poster for the No Playback Pageant, that includes a dozen bands who will ostensibly play uncooked and reside, with no backing tracks. Take a look at the hyperlink and the rant on the finish of this text.
The usage of backing tracks within the rock and metallic scene by no means gave the impression to be extra controversial than it was final yr. Bandleaders had been very vocal both for-or-against and on-line fights had been rampant. Dave Mustaine known as bands that use tracks “fucking lazy.” Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho defended musicians that use them. And the granddaddy of all Twitter wars was waged by pro-backing tracker Ronnie Radke of Falling in Reverse, who laid into to Sirius XM host Eddie Trunk and Sebastian Bach, calling them dinosaurs and a bunch of different salty names. You’ll be able to see a listing of bands who proudly admit to utilizing backing tracks beneath.
We broke down the mission assertion on the No Playback Festival‘s web site utilizing a neato German-English on-line translator. What’s “Das echte LIVE-Erlebnis, internationale High-Bands der Rock- und Metallic Szene, die noch den Spirit des Rock’n‘Roll verkörpern, dafür steht das No Playback Pageant.” in German, spits out to “The true LIVE expertise, worldwide high bands of the rock and metallic scene, who nonetheless embody the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll, that is what the No Playback Pageant stands for.” Proper on.
Bands scheduled to carry out cleanly April 28-29, 2023 at Remchigen’s Kulturhalle embody Ross The Boss, Raven, Sanhedrin, Vicious Rumors and eight others.
