Metal +

I went to see Velnias and Nadja last night, at The Empty Bottle. It was nice to run into so many friends at the club, after making the rainy, chilly, bus trek over there. Velnias definitely benefited from the great PA, and their sound was clear, balanced, loud, and intense. The vocals made a much greater impact than when I saw them at Ronny's on Easter. Nadja could have been a lot louder... I wanted that overload... but the pair still got across the doomy, psychedelic, shoegazer mood in pretty fine form.
