Live Offerings: Uada and Cloak- Los Angeles

Los Angeles has always been a fun place to check out live music, between well known and local bands there is something to be had for the world of metal. The streets of LA are littered with Dive Bars and bigger venues but whatever you may choose, you are sure to have your concert fire quelled.

On Friday November 8th the crowd was ever growing at The Hi Hat in anticipation of legendary Black Metal band 1349. While I do enjoy the aforementioned band I am here to talk about the openers Uada and Cloak, because while 1349 slayed I feel these two performances really shined in their own way.

This was the first time I have seen Cloak and they absolutely impressed me. Hailing from Atlanta Georgia these guys play a blend of Black n Roll that is supremely satisfying and just downright fun! Their electrifying stage presence and tight knit structure made their performance all the more enjoyable. Seeing them live was a real treat as their newest album The Burning Dawn has been in my rotation since it’s release. Be sure to catch them when they come around your neighborhood!

Now I may be a bit overly enthusiastic about Uada’s performance as they are one of my favorite bands but I feel they are always worth talking about. Uada have been quite busy since Cult of a Dying Sun was released in 2018, taking their music throughout the USA and Europe. Everytime I have seen them live it has always been nothing short of fantastic. Their special brew of Black Metal transpires seamlessly from record to stage, presenting a visceral auditory experience that is all together beautiful and cathartic. I was happy to hear all the favorite songs and I urge you to either check them out live or just give them a listen if you have not done so. Don’t believe me? Check out the review previously written for Cult of a Dying Sun.

To close this concert was great sound wise and visual, definitely one for the books!
