In this Preshow Rituals segment, the metal band, Downfall Of Gaia, talks about what they do before every show. You can check out their rituals, after the break.
We don’t have any fixed group ritual. I would say all of us prepare a bit different for the show. Usually, all of us enjoy a beer and a cigarette before all of the action is happening. Nothing special at all. If possible, I do stretch and try to warm up my voice. Especially when a tour is in its early days. Things can get pretty painful if your body isn’t used to it anymore because you didn’t tour for a longer time or something like that. There was never a tour without any bodily defects. So I try to obviate. Besides that, I always try to stay hydrated. All of this is not much, but it definitely helps me to get through a longer tour.
