Live Review from Underground 10:
In the style of Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit, GOSSIP headlined Underground 10 with their tight nu-metal music. With complicated chord changes and moments of progressive punk, I could see how they are in the semi-finals of the World Battle of the Band this year. An offbeat choice of an Anita Mui cover song plus their own originals all sung in Cantonese – the changes in tempo of their songs were exciting and kept me watching and listening. Enjoyed the Korg keyboards work too.

These guys look cool up on stage! AND, they’ve got a great sound to back it up. The first song was super tight canto-angst. The electronics/keys really PHatten up big guitar driven music. But DAMN, that drummer is powerful and accurate! I thought it was weird that his snare was so low, until I saw that used his entire upper body with a full arm swing to generate the power and energy to be projected to the band/audience/foundations of the building. Yet he still possessed subtlety and dynamic control to be musical and not over power the band.
