Die So Fluid

Winchester’s Railway Inn had a mixture of alternative DJs and bands and Trauma Pet represented the first of the live music installments.

Guitar, Bass, and vocals were played to an atmospheric backing track creating an almost Lunascape type sound. Almost.

Although there were some moments that showed promise, on the whole Trauma Pet failed to materialise into anything that could be described as a song or performance. Fingers crossed they can build on those hope-filled flickers and gain the confidence in their sound to own the stage.

Die Do Fluid saved the day with an incredibly strong set. The songs were there, not just the three singles but the new material such as ‘Circus of Sin’. Every song was excellent.

The mix of rock and metal was full on punchy riffs, chops, and changes. Individual tracks contained both melodic emotional moments scattered amongst harsh heavy rock. This band will not just please people who like punk, metal, or alternative rock, they’ll blow your bloody socks off.

I can’t imagine Die So Fluid will be playing in venues this intimate for long, so see them while you can get up close!
