Avatar – Omaha, Nebraska – 9.11.16

Avatar in Omaha, Nebraska on September 11, 2016.

Avatar performed at Whiskey Tango in Omaha, Nebraska on September 11, 2016. Supporting Avatar were Omaha local bands More Than a Memory and Before I Burn, along with touring band Painted Wives.

It has been a solid year since Avatar stopped in Omaha at, what I consider, one of the worst venues in the area. This time around they picked Whiskey Tango which is a new place I like to cover shows.

I have been a fan of Avatar for a couple of years and covering them twice has been a pretty awesome experience. This I was able to enjoy this heavy metal rock band from Sweden with:

Johannes Michael Gustaf Eckerström – Vocals
John Alfredsson – Drums
Kungen – Guitars
Tim Öhrström – Guitars
Henrik Sandelin – Bass

Not one to brag that I know every song and album they have released, however, I do like their work. It is heavy as hell. It isn’t just a band that plays a 45 -60 minute set, they put on a rock show. All three guitars are identically detailed, the band members wear the same uniform and they play the life out of every song. The most notable song that I know is Bloody Angel, which is the song that got me hooked three years ago.

Supporting Avatar on the Omaha stop of their tour were touring band Painted Wives along with local support of More Than a Memory and Before I Burn.
