The fever 333

IS­LING­TON ACAD­EMY, LON­DON

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Albums. Lives. Merch. -

The Fever 333 trans­port you into a world of their own mak­ing, where prej­u­dice doesn’t ex­ist and to­geth­er­ness rules. You’re handed a hymn sheet upon en­try, filled with the band’s lyrics, and a pin badge is at­tached to your chest. The venue is buzzing with an­tic­i­pa­tion, star­ing at the white sheet across the stage, be­fore ring­leader Ja­son Aalon But­ler en­ters in Guan­tanamo-es­que out­fit amidst footage of protests and fas­cist demon­stra­tions, be­fore launch­ing full force into new song Burn It with a le­gion of com­rades on­stage. This de­scends into Ja­son climb­ing all over the venue like a park­our ninja with a death wish, but only briefly, keep­ing him­self grounded in the lat­ter half to and sing the (mainly un­heard) songs with the full emo­tion and gusto they de­serve. Be­tween songs Ja­son gives speeches about kin­ship and com­mu­nity, which form the ab­so­lute core of The Fever 333. There is a mes­sage in these songs, these per­for­mances, within this church of kind­ness and punk rock (with a dash of hip hop). This just the be­gin­ning.
