And Then She Came - Kubana, Siegburg (Germany) - 10 March 2017

Every once in a while, I come across a band that impresses me with their high quality music and fantastic live performances. And when I keep following them through the years, I very often ask myself – why are they not world-famous, or at least much better known?

Germany's Krypteria were such a name. With their mix of Melodic Power, Gothic, Bombast Metal, they were able to create their very own style, within an existing, well-trodden genre. After their stint as a sort-of-underground-cult-phenomenon in Germany, and in many parts of Europe, they went on a hiatus due to various internal reasons, from which they sadly never returned. Instead, out of the blue last year, they popped up again with a completely different project – And Then She Came!

With newly recruited guitarist Olli Singer on board, they have developed a new style, once again crossing boundaries of various different genres, resulting in their very own sound. They have toured extensively promoting their first, self-titled album and I was able to catch them again at one of their gigs in Germany, at the Kubana in Siegburg, a smaller town not far from Cologne. The Kubana is a longstanding, popular live venue that has featured many well-known artists from the Rock and Metal genre throughout the years.

And Then She Came - Live

And Then She Came were on fire that night, their unique blend of Modern Metal, mixed with elements of Electronica alongside an Industrial touch here and there, offers so much more live than on their already excellent album. The real reason for this is that their songs are quite melodic and they also have hooks that – once anchored in your head – are difficult to shake off.

Their two video clip releases, 'Why So Serious?' and the powerful 'Hellfire Halo', are best examples of this, as is the majestic closing number 'Like A Hurricane'. They are easily able to ramp it up with songs like 'Spit It Out' that can cause serious neck-pain from severe head-banging. And Then She Came also have already a new song in their live program – the very catchy 'Do You Remember' – which will be on their second album, planned for release later this year.

The band have a good connection to the audience – not least due to their vocalist Ji-In Cho, without a doubt one of the most amazing front-women in Rock I have ever witnessed! And I have seen many... Not only has she a beautiful, melodic yet powerful voice, but also a captivating stage presence that makes it very difficult to concentrate on anything else that happens around her. That being said, the band performs to the highest standards, as a well-oiled live unit, with Cho being in perfect balance with the high quality music presented by her band-mates, Singer on guitar, Frank Stumvoll on bass and drummer S. C. Kuscherus, who at some point during the show, invited the audience to his amusing trademark sing-along intermezzo.

And Then She Came - Live2

The show was very well received by the audience, made up of the dedicated And Then She Came followers and first-timers, who were well aware that they witnessed a stunning new act worth keeping an eye on. Even Rock royalty was present, as Metal icon Udo Dirkschneider was there and seemed to have been mightily impressed by the performance.

And Then She Came are at present trying to secure opportunities to come over and play in the UK and when that happens, be sure to be there – it's an event not to be missed by a band destined for greater things! And keep your eyes peeled for a feature in an upcoming issue of Fireworks Magazine!
