Wednesday, June 10th, 2015, at the Seattle Club known as Studio Seven, a great hard rock/metal band known as “December In Red” that formed in 2009 came home to their native Seattle, WA for a homecoming show resulting in a phenomenal night with entertainment provided by something of a “Metal Quartet.” They were the first act of the evening opening up for “Scare Don’t Fear,” “The Family Ruin” and tour headliner’s, “HED P.E.” Needless to say, December In Red, being the tour’s opening act brought the house down on their final stop of their “The Way Out Tour” to kick off the evening.
The hard hitting Rock/Metal act opened the night with their first song “Hooks and Splatter’s” using heavy bass and drum tones with crushing guitar sounds and hard hitting instrumentation to go along with singer Del McGeachy’s powerful voice. The band has become more and more well-known for it’s own unique signature sound while comparing to the like’s of band’s such as Chevelle, Deftones, and Incubus. This sound has given December In Red’s fan’s locally and across the country what they have been waiting for in this genre of rock/metal music. They have even sealed a guaranteed record deal with CaviGold Records LLC, a Seattle/Los Angeles rock and metal music label that started in 2012, which is home to bands like “The Fail Safe Project,” “Lotus Crush,” “Under Sin,” “Devil’s Hunt Me Down,” and many more . In addition to playing their second hit single song, the ever-so-powerful “Send Me A Postcard,” which is a song that is very well known and loved by many of their follower’s, the Seattle native’s played quite a few other songs from their self-titled album. Some of the other’s included “Arrested On Sight,” “Pelican,” “De D’Aur” and their hardcore hitting single featuring the lead singer of HED P.E.’sJared “Jarhed” Gomes, performing “Hadouken,” which had an extremely pummeling sound that could crush concrete to dust in a matter of seconds.
December In Red’s raw energy throughout their entire set is one of the things that really caught everyone in Studio Seven’s attention watching them perform. With Dan Gardner on his seven-string guitars, Colbey Schnelle on his four-string bass, and Marc Mercier on drums, they put on a final tour show that local fans alike wouldn’t forget. The Seattle hard metal rockers closed out their seven song set on a high note with their song “Chameleon.” With honesty and absolute truth, people in the venue of Studio Seven could have asked for much more in one set especially from a supporting act that can without a doubt, annihilate any advisary that comes in their midst. First handedly seeing how their fans react to their presence performing on stage and myself alike, have an immense and strong feeling that the rest of this year and year’s to come is going to be huge for December In Red . If you haven’t heard of or listened to this band, you are for surely missing out on something musically amazing!
