Sin City got a little louder on Tuesday night, with Seether and Saint Asonia rocking the House of Blues. Packed full from front to back, the energy was overwhelming from start to finish.
Saint Asonia may be new to the rock world, but the members are no strangers to the stage. The supergroup, consisting
of current and former members of Staind, Three Days Grace, Finger Eleven, and Eye Empire, wasted no time getting things rolling. A heavy bass intro to "Better Place" kicked off the set on a high note, which included a mix of Saint Asonia originals as well as some Three Days Grace and Staind favourites. "Animal I Have Become" and "Mudshovel" were a perfect introduction for those that hadn't yet heard of the band. The undeniably catchy choruses to "Fairy Tale" and "Let Me Live My Life" had everyone jumping, warming them up for what was to come.
Following what was already an awesome night of rock, Seether were ready to take the stage and close out the night. They started out with "My Disaster" from their latest album, Isolate and Medicate, continuing on with hit after hit including "Rise Above This" and "Gasoline". Bassist Dale Stewart leapt around the stage, feeding off of the crowd's energy. Frontman Shaun Morgan showcased his raw, powerful vocals on lighter tracks "Broken" and "Breakdown" before kicking things back into high gear for the rest of the set. When the first notes of "Country Song" echoed through the club, it was impossible not to dance along, and a cover of Nirvana's "Lithium" suited Morgan's voice perfectly. When it was time for the seemingly too short to end, "Fake It" and "Remedy" served as a perfect closer. With the audience competing with Morgan to drown out his vocals, the atmosphere was at an all time high.
If Seether are hitting your city on the remainder of the tour, it is definitely a show worthy of your hard earned cash.
