“Alright everyone! Since all the regular gigs are postponed we needed to get creative.
This will be filmed in HD with several cameras and with professional sound, and it’s live! So if we mess up, you will see and hear it!
Tickets are available now! They are 8 euros and that will cover the costs for all personell involved. So until we can meet in person again, feel free to tune in and we will play stuff you have never heard us play!
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Eclipse‘s live performance at the Rock N Skull Festival back in October 2016: “Obviously, I was not the only one looking forward to Eclipse‘s set because The Tree Of Joliet venue looked packed waiting for Eclipse to go on. It felt like the night’s headliner was about to hit the stage as you could hear snippets of songs from various classic bands such as Whitesnake, KISS (“Crazy Nights”) and Judas Priest (“Freewheel Burning”) before the band made as grand of an entrance as anyone else up to that point.
Eclipse simply proceeded to put on the best performance for Day Two — hands down. Hitting the stage with Armageddonize‘s catchy opening track “I Don’t Wanna Say I’m Sorry,” Eclipse simply commanded presence and it quickly became clear that they would be a very very hard act to follow. Eclipse kept the pressure on with great live versions of “Caught Up In The Rush” and “Wake Me Up” before taking it up a notch with the stellar “The Storm.”
After having had the pleasure to see Mårtensson perform live as a guitarist during Ammunition‘s set, I now got to see what a great frontman that the man really is. Mårtensson was a bundle of energy constantly moving and covering all facets of the stage. His voice sounded really good and he had the uncanny ability to get the Rock N Skull crowd to cheer and scream for long periods of time, which is something that previous bands at Rock N Skull‘s 2016 edition up to that point seemed unable to do.
Guitarist Magnus Henriksson and bassist Magnus Ulfstedt also seemed to have that star power and performed admirably. Newcomer drummer Philip Crusner put on an inspired performance. It was fun hearing Mårtensson introduce his Eclipse bandmates. Mårtensson advised that Ulfstedt was actually previously the group’s drummer (2000 to 2006) before returning to the band as the bassist (starting in 2014). Mårtensson also indicated that they tried to find the best looking drummer possible — clearly referring to Crusner‘s pretty boy good looks — before exclaiming that they were pleased that Crusner could play drums as well (or something to that extent).”
