Featuring Lilith Czar, Ice Nine Kills, Motionless in White and Black Veil Brides
On March 30th a band of horror and metal rampaged through The Criterion in Oklahoma City. The Trinity of Terror Tour had arrived featuring Lilith Czar, Ice Nine Kills, Motionless in White and Black Veil Brides. A completely souled out show! The Criterion was packed from front to back and in the balcony.
Up first was Lilith Czar. Even being the “newcomers” to the scene they really put on a show for all those in attendance. Sing-alongs did happen though from not only Lilith’s own material but also the included covers of Juliet Simm’s and Stevie Nicks’ songs. Only one album so far, I see things only going up from here.
Next up was my personal favorite and the main reason I was so excited for this tour. ICE NINE KILLS!! I am a HUGE horror buff and for a band to combine metal and horror is a perfect combination for me. Starting with “Welcome to Horrorwood” and continuing onto a 40 minute setlist including one of my favorites “Hip to be Scared” these guys really do put everything out there. Vocalist Spencer Charnas does a bit of an outfit change for various songs. They’re stage show is amazing with Shevvy Marie, the bands makeup artist, doing different roles on stage as well. They tell a story with every song. Such a fun band to watch!

Next on our massive card was Motionless in White. I have always wanted to cover a MIW show but I always seem to miss them. This was my first time seeing them live as well. Its clear to see with a set that featured some music spanning the bands career just have much their sound has advanced throughout the years. MIW thanks their fans for sticking by them and growing with them. They even showed their love for the LGBT community at the end of their hit song “Voices”. They put on a great show and I will be on the lookout for the next time they come through.
MOTIONLESS IN WHITE
Last but certainly not least was Black Veil Brides. These guys are a mix of metal and glamrock. They showcase their skills quite well throughout their set and the crowd eats up every second of it. Lots of crowd interaction throughout as well. Songs from almost every album were played and the crowd sang with Andy through it all.
