In this First Concert Ever segment, the melodic metal band, State Of Trust, talks about the story of their first experiences with live music. You can check out the story, after the break.
Hi guys, my name is Cata and I play the guitars in State of Trust, also do most of the music alongside my partner in crime Mircea who was unavailable this time for this chat.
I grew up in a small town – north of Romania in a region called Maramures, there was not much metal activity at the time there, except for some underground bands and some major old-school rock local bands.
I remember I was in high school and I just heard on a rock radio station that Annihilator will have a gig close to my hometown and they will bring some great opening acts such as Nevermore and Soilwork!!! I couldn’t believe it. Me and a bunch of friends grabbed our tickets right away. It was one of the most awesome things that could ever happen to a young metalhead, to see such great musicians in one night (I was already a big fan of Jeff Waters, Jeff Loomis, and Soilwork as well). The journey was amazing as well, we had to take a train to reach the city where the concert was, and guess what???…the train was loaded with metalheads, as well as the city when we arrived. Pretty impressive and epic for a high school metalhead kid…hehe. Jeff Waters was out of this world live, as well as the other guitar players, I remember at some point, Jeff Loomis was riffing some songs only with one hand!
After that night I knew for sure that I want to do the same thing in the future! I am currently playing with the band Silver End (NO), but State Of Trust is a new project that will bring some fresh and awesome music for the melodic metal fans! ;)
