Threshold The Dome Tufnell Park London 21-10-18
After 2 decent support acts from Maxwell and The Silent Wedding who have supported Threshold in the past it was time to see one of my favourite bands play in full one of the best albums of,in my opinion, of their's or anybody's careers.
For just under an hour and 45 minutes including a 2 song encore (Light And Space not played due to time constraint's) we were treated to a spectacle few band's could ever comtemplate.
The ebbs and flows of The Legend Of The Shires played magnificently by Richard West on keys,Steve Anderson on bass,Johanne James on drums and Karl Groom on guitar with additional guitar when required for added heaviness and twin guitar leads by singer Glynn Morgan.
Due to snow I sadly missed the London debut of Threshold late last year as a 5 piece so this was my first sighting of Glynn and his melodic tones and I have to say I didn't miss previous vocalist and his stage antics Damian Wilson as I expected to.
Glynn has great stage presence and his vocals fitted perfectly with the ebbs and flows of the material from the melodic intro of The Shire to the instant heaviness of Small Dark Lines.
Small Dark Lines and the stunning The Man Who Saw Through Time with Glynn able to use his vocal range were a little spoilt with the muddy mix which did get better thankfully.
Stars And Satellites with Karl Groom's wonderful guitar tones now perfectly audible was a show highlight in a set full of them.
Johanne James must be one of the hardest hitting drummer's on the planet and he is a show on his own with plenty of stick spinning.
As the album drew to a close the audience who had come from far and wide stood and appauded a show that show that should be selling out stadium's but everyone present didn't care as we had seen a set that will rank in anybody's best of list any year possible.
After buying a new live cd the band all came out and I managed a full set and a quick chat and Neal had a quick photo with Glynn which ended a wonderful evening.
Threshold thank you.
