Fit For A King & More in Ottawa

Ottawa, Ontario (July 24, 2019)Adrienne Row – Smith On a hot July evening Fit For A King was looking to spice things up with a sold out show in Canada’s capital city. With a stacked bill featuring a debut show of Ottawa’s own Glaive, hardcore band Left Behind, Currents and metal veterans Norma Jean posed the show to be an exciting one.

Up first for the evening were Glaive, and their debut show was a bit of a sentimental one. Featuring members of the local star band Southpaw, the members opted to come together under a new moniker after the passing of their former bandmate Tyler Hay.  Playing a collective of heavy songs that got the mosh pit ball rolling, the band’s first show together was a great tribute and start of a new chapter.

Following Glaive, were Virginia based Left Behind. Keeping the aggressive vibes going, the band got more of the crowd off their feet and into the pit. Opting to spend most of their time entertaining the crowd with music instead. The band had a hard-hitting set with the crowd clamouring to the front of the stage to sing along with the band.

Just like their namesake, Currents were a whirlwind of energy onstage. Enticing the crowd into a frenzy it was a sentimental show for the bassist Chris Pulgrin as he was choosing to celebrate his late friend’s birthday by continuing to play a show. The crowd in trying to uplift him and make the night positive for him, delivered tenfold in their energy, circle pitting, moshing, and singing as loudly as they could with the band. Despite the somber event that hung-over Currents, they put on a phenomenal show and be sure to support them if they’re touring in a city near you.

Following Currents, Norma Jean set saw the venue packed with people nearly preventing moshing as most folks were so close that they just swayed to the music. The band played popular hits like Synthetic Sun, and 1,000,000 Watts. With 1,000,000 Watts, when the band hit the chorus, the venue ricochet with the crowd loudly singing along and moving. True to form, featuring in your face vocals, Norma Jean brought the rough and gritty that the band was known for and the crowd appreciated it. Even vocalist Cory Brandan felt the appreciation, boldly stating that this was his favourite stop on the tour thus far.

They say that good things come to those that wait, and as Fit For a King showed the best shows on occasion happen fashionably late. Despite the initial technical issue, the wait was worth it, as the band came out swinging – literally, as bassist Ryan O’Leary tore up the stage better than the Tasmanian devil. Mixing their set with a solid blend of old and new like Slave To Nothing (2014’s Slave To Nothing) and The Price of Agony ( 2018’s Dark Skies) made the fans go wild in appreciation and led to a few crowd surfers in the small venue. Overall, the band delivered a powerful and unforgettable set. With only a few days into the tour, if they’re coming to a city near you this isn’t something you’ll want to miss.
