The lovely chaps of The Darker My Horizon invited me to come along to their show supporting Nazareth last night in Fulham. I have never been to Under The Bridge before (largely as it is the other side of London from where I live) but it was a spacious 600-capacity venue, adorned with various historic rock-star photographs and serving London Lager on tap…so it was a thumbs-up from me!
I first saw TDmH when they supported Geoff Tate’s new band Operation: Mindcrime at Underworld in Camden back in December 2015 and instantly warmed to their catchy, up-beat melodic rock. I was also lucky enough to catch their acoustic set supporting Terry Brock back in April this year.
Last night they played a great set; mixing tracks from their first album Acquiesce [reviewed by Sheggs earlier this year] plus four new tracks from their forthcoming album No Superhero, which is out on 22 July.
With sexy riffs, epic guitar solos, catchy lyrics and pinch-harmonics a-plenty these new tracks merged seamlessly into the band’s original body of work and provided a great introduction to the new album, which we look forward to hearing in full!
To get a taste of what is in store, check out the video for “No Superhero – Part One” below.
Unfortunately I had to run off after TDmH set so was unable to watch Nazareth, but it was definitely worth the trip to see these guys again. Make sure you check them out if they come to a town near you.
