The Sabbath, a new hangout in Birmingham, kicked off a new series of special events called The Sabbath Sessions last week at Dig Brew brewery in Digbeth.
Serving as part of a celebration of Trivium’s new album ‘In The Court Of the Dragon, one of the bands that played was the unstoppable Malevolence who showed off another side to their thunderous sound.
Guitarists Konan Hall and Adam Baines took to the stage and covered Black Sabbath’s classic ballad ‘Changes’, and it was enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end.
From the way that the beautiful chords ring around the room to Konan’s outrageous vocal performance, it’s something quite special.
The Sabbath's Adam Foster had this to say about the event:
"The whole evening was an amazing experience and we’re really pleased with how that translated on the screen. Konan from Malevolence showcases everything good in heavy music today, and although this show was performed with acoustic guitars, it was a very fitting ode to the city that created heavy metal and where we are heading next. We’re very excited to bring more of these curated events to our beloved Birmingham".
And Konan had to this to say about the song choice:
"We wanted to play a song that represents the changes everyone has had to face over the last two years. Changes in all aspects of life that have altered everyone's normality. For us personally, The Sabbath Sessions was a perfect chance to showcase the changes we had to face as performing artists. This very intimate acoustic performance represents that sentiment in its purest form."
