Hangman’s Chair + Team Ghost @ La Maroquinerie (Paris, 05.05.18)
This was the release party for French doom torchbearers Hangman’s Chair new album Banlieue Triste. Team Ghost were first, delivering a dull show, overall inconsistent for some reason. Then Hangman’s Chair get on stage, happy to be here, and effortlessly put on an awe-inspiring, “call me daddy” performance, making the whole crowd bow in front of their majesty. I was looking forward to seeing them on a stage after the release of their previous record This Is Not Supposed To Be Positive. It’s now done, and like a dude once told me at Hellfest on a Monday around 3am: “I have no regrets”.
