Goths, post-punks, and synth-pop lovers gathered for this unique night!

Just arriving at the Aztec Theatre last night we could feel the vibe and what was coming ahead by looking at the great people who came to see Nuovo Testamento and Molchat Doma who made a stop in San Antonio, TX as part of the North American tour.

The two bands have been very active playing basically every day for the last 2 months and luckily for us, San Antonio was included in their tour.

For almost 3 hours, fans enjoyed great music with a mix of punk rock with elements of synth-pop, new wave, and goth. It was like a blast from the past with a modern twist. The crowd danced and sang some of the songs, considering Molchat Doma sings in Russian, but the experience to see them live was incredible!

Nuovo Testamento

The night started with the band Nuovo Testamento, integrated by Chelsey Crowley and Giacomo Zatti. Their music is full of a great 80s vibe that even if you are not from that era, the rhythms and melodies have you dance with them. Their show included songs from their past albums “Exposure EP”, “New Earth” and just released in March “Love Lines”.

“Wildlife”, “Heartbeat”, “Michelle Michelle”, and “Perfect Storm” were some of the songs performed in the middle of colorful sync-lights to catchy beats.

MOLCHAT DOMA

But of course, the crowd was anxious to see the band Molchat Doma who recently got very famous after their song  “Sudno (Судно)” went viral on TikTok in 2020.

The Belarusian post-punk band, known for their energetic and captivating live performances delivered a show full of a mix of moody, atmospheric soundscapes and high-energy post-punk anthems that create a unique and unforgettable experience for fans.

Frontman Egor Shkutko often jumping and dancing around the stage while delivering his powerful and unique vocals. And Roman Komogortsev on guitar and Pavel Kozlov on synthesizers, provide the driving force behind the band’s sound, creating a moody, atmospheric backdrop for Shkutko’s vocals.

The band’s visuals also play a key role in their live shows. They often incorporate striking and eerie visuals that match the mood of their music, creating a captivating and immersive experience for fans. The use of lighting and smoke machines adds to the atmosphere, creating a sense of otherworldliness that enhances the band’s already distinctive sound.
