The 69 Eyes “Hell Has No Mercy 2020 U.S. Tour ” kicked off at the knitting factory in Brooklyn, New York with support of Wednesday 13 and Sumo Cyco.
Going into this, I had no clue who Sumo Cyco was. However after seeing their very high energy set I will now say I am a fan. They are a four-piece female fronted hard rock band from Toronto. I would describe their music as dance-able hard rock, with killer instrumentals. The lead vocalist Skye brings the crowd into it, whether it’s crowd surfing to the bar to get a shot of Jack, or starting a dance circle in the middle of the crowd. This front-woman is a beast to say the least. I highly suggest you check these rockers out, they’re so intense.
Wednesday 13 was next up and let me tell you, the Duke of Spook never disappoints. I have had the great privilege to see and photograph this great performer numerous times and there’s something special about his show that keeps bringing me, as well as many fans back for more.
His theatrics are some of the best I have ever seen, not matter how big or small the stage is he always puts his best show on. The new songs off his recently released album “Necrophaze” fit flowingly well into the set and go well with his previous released classics.
The headliner of the night graced the stage opening with a song off their newest record “West End” that originally featured Dani Filth “Two Horns Up”. Dani Filth isn’t here in Brooklyn but let me tell you that didn’t stop the Finnish rockers from putting on a killer show. The set featured five songs off the new record, as well as a bunch of classics such as "Hell Has No Mercy" "Lost Boys" and "Feel Berlin" to name a few.
This band has been making music for over 30 years, the dynamic sound and how solid these musicians are playing together definitely is an accent of that. Vocalist Jykri 69 sounds insanely stable keeping his low tone crisp and clear through the entire set.
The 69 Eyes put on a great show and I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun night of flirting with Rock and Roll over these dreadful winter nights.
