Local Heavy Metal Band set to thrill TT audience this weekend
Local Heavy Metal band, Feed The Flames (FTF), is currently in Trinidad and Tobago and the group is all set to deliver an outstanding performance at the Skyy Rock Festival, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday night. FTF will be performing both nights.
Last year, FTF performed in Trinidad for the first time at a rock event called ‘Lynchpin vs. The World’. The band was very well received and was almost immediately booked for the Skyy Rock Festival.
On the first night, FTF will be performing a set of original material, while launching their debut studio album titled ‘Kyk-Over-Al’, the title being a tribute to the famous dutch fort in the mighty Essequibo river. The album features six FTF original compositions, as well as a special bonus track – a rock version of The National Anthem.
On the second night, FTF will be presenting some Creole Rock, where Gavin Mendonca’s ‘Creole Rock: The Beginning’ will be launched as well, and Josi, a talented young woman from the mining town of Linden.
This is history being made for a Guyanese Rock band – performing two consecutive nights in Trinidad, while doing a double album launch.
Feed The Flames will be representing their own unique style of Guyanese Culture, in the form of Rock n’ Roll.
Skyy Rock Festival is an annual rock festival held in San Fernando, Trinidad. This year’s edition is a three day event.
The first day being a Music Industry Conference, allowing Rock Musicians in this region to gain a better understanding of the Business of Music, while learning how to reach an international audience.
Saturday and Sunday nights will see a total of 20 Caribbean Rock bands performing. 18 being native to Trinidad, ‘Aeons of Disorder’ who are from French Guiana and Guyana’s very own ‘Feed The Flames’.
It is the largest Rock Festival in the Caribbean and a forum that encourages and allows young people to invest in their passion, and live the dream of being ‘Rockstars’, right here in the Caribbean.
Feed The Flames recently hosted their own local rock concert, with local band ‘Rock United Musicians’ and ‘Revolt’ all the way from Suriname. The show was a huge success, and a huge step forward for the Guyanese Rock Scene, proving that FTF can offer an alternative source of live entertainment, with the energetic phenomenon that is Rock n’ Roll.
Feed The Flames continues to express gratitude to its friends and fans who have supported them over the past eight years, and their sponsors who helped them to produce the album and get to Trinidad. These sponsors include; Chetson’s, Sankar’s Auto Works, Radio Rock n’ Roll, Howard’s Restaurant, Zoon, The Other Place, Fraser’s Batter Service.
