Ho99o9 are one of the most exciting live bands currently making music, relentlessly touring and supporting everyone from heavyweights Avenged Sevenfold and Papa Roach, to playing 100 capacity intimate shows. Their sold out show at Camden Underworld in June was one of the best shows of the year, it was a show that will be talked about for years to come.
Opening the show was the excellent Nova Twins. Nova Twins give off a strong punk vibe but have that crossover appeal where they can win fans of everyone from MC5 to Stormzy. Nova Twins smashed out songs with powerful basslines that caused the venue’s foundation to shake. Nova Twins are a live act, with the energy and authority you can only get in the live arena, this is a band to watch.
Ho99o9 were on another level and are truly one of the best live bands touring today. From the moment they came out on stage and launched into ‘Street Power,’ from United States of Horror, it was absolute bedlam from start to finish with walls of death, mosh pits, circle pits and stage divers, sometimes all within the same song. Ho99o9 are a band you have to see live, dangerous on record but deadly live. They’re a live band who throw themselves into the performance, sometimes literally into the crowd. Despite the occasional technical problem, Ho99o9 gave one of the performances of the year playing a career-spanning set. The intensity of the set was unreal and the band delivered a performance that was one for the history books. They are three talented musicians who are the real deal, a dangerous original band that will not stop. The finale of ‘DeathKult Disciples’ left everyone breathless. When the band walked off, the audience was a sea of sweaty, happy faces. Ho99o9 are one of the greatest emerging bands, see them to experience musical nirvana.
