PELICAN and HIGH ON FIRE from the US in Prague

pelican Their last concert in Prague was described on the server like this: “Pelican weren’t on the stage, they were in an open country. I couldn’t break away, not even go thirty steps to the bathroom. The feel of hardly depicted flaring flow through the whole area and swinging of the guitarists resembled trees in the wind”

Regarding the band’s genre, de Brauw said: “I don’t think of Pelican as a metal band… I feel like we’re part of a trajectory of Midwest bands that kind of blend aggression with a pop sensibility, so while it’s easy to classify us with instrumental bands, we’re not instrumental by design. We just didn’t know how to put vocals in our music and for it to sound right.”

Concerning High on Fire, they play hardrock, and they are a group around the nine-strings guitarist Matt Pike, who is an ex-member of a stoner-rock group Sleep

So if this makes you interested, I would find them on youtube and listen, and if you get swayed, the good idea is to visit their concert, which takes place in Rock Café, Narodni 20, Prague 1 on 24th November 2007.
