The Shape Of Things To Come With STEVEN MERRY Of BE’LAKOR

Share This:

Australian melodic death metal machine Be’Lakor began to reach an international audience following the release of their third studio album Of Breath & Bone in 2012.

It is an album the band themselves admit “helped us to grow and find new audiences as a band” and one which laid the platform for a global assault that continues to gain traction to this day.

A worldwide success that garnered rave reviews from both fans and critics alike, Of Breath & Bone remains a turning point of Be’Lakor’s career and will now be officially commemorated with a one-off special performance at Max Watts in Melbourne on February 24 to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

Be’Lakor – for the first and probably last time ever – will pay homage to the album by playing it in its entirety, mixing popular tracks such as Abeyance, In Parting and Remnants with some of the other lesser-known tracks that combined to create something special.

Keyboard player Steven Merry joined HEAVY to talk more about the show.

“It was gonna be November last year, which would have been officially ten years since the album came out,” he began, “but then we had to move it to February this year which technically means it’s a slightly late birthday for it. I can’t believe ten years have gone by since the album came out.”

Be’Lakor will be playing Of Breath & Bone from start to finish, with Merry smiling at the thought.

“It’s the only time we’ve done it and we won’t be doing it again,” he laughed, “so I think it does make it a pretty special gig in that way that it’s definitely a one-off thing.”

In the full interview, Steven talks about what to expect from the show, what sorts of things the album opened up for the band when it came out, playing songs they may have never played live before, if it has stood the test of time musically, which tracks have grown on him over the years, the other bands playing and why they were chosen and more.
