Last show in Hong Kong before leaving for Sweden. This time spent listening to the massive sounds of Swedish Immanu El. Played on a Sunday and the venue quickly filled up with mostly a female crowd that came to listen and view the Swedish gents. Heavy and experimental Scandinavian sound… Really awesome and talented musicians, but for me the music was a little bit too slow and I don’t think I enjoyed it as much as the rest of the crowd that did not let the boys from Immanu El get off the stage. This was probably the longest single set I have experienced at Hidden Agenda, and the crowd loved it.
To explain the music a little better, I found this little piece of text online:
“Immanu El is a Swedish band with a sound of dynamic guitar and keyboard soundscapes, captive singing and with somewhat of a moving Nordic presence. The music is focused at varying dynamics in a wide spectrum of harmonic expressions and moves between presence and ambience. Originally the band was inspired by early post-rock and experimental music combined with pop and indie-rock influences.”
