HADES Film Reunion For DVD Release; Video Available
April 27, 2010, 5 years ago
Footage of the 2010 HADES reunion show at Dingbatz in Clifton, NJ can be seen now on YouTube below. Hades performed their first show in over eight years on April 21st. The show was to be the first with the Resisting Success line-up since 1986. However, bassist Jimmy Schulman was ill at the time, so Hades recruited NON-FICTION bassist Kevin Bolembach to fill in.
Hades appearance at The Keep It True festival in Germany was canceled initially because switching a ticket to Kevin's name was impossible, but later due to the fact that the band's flight was ultimately canceled due to the volcano disturbance.
Providing Hades introduction that night was Don Jamieson from VH1 Classic's That Metal Show. Producer Jay Bones and Viking Digital Films filmed the show that will eventually become Hades second DVD.
Singer Alan Tecchio said of the reunion: "It's a damn shame Jimmy was in no condition to play with us. A lot of people were disappointed including of course, us. We hope he is doing better but have no further information as to his condition at this time. Luckily Kevin came in and saved us-allowing the show to still go on (at least in the States) I was able to grab a last minute flight to Germany to play KIT with Watchtower and I met many disappointed European Hades fans who wanted to see us play. Hopefully one day we will be able to jam for them as well. Until then, at least we have this great footage that Jay shot."
The complete tracklisting for the show was as follows:
'King In Exile'
'I Too Eye'
'Exist To Resist'
'Rebel Without A Brain'
'Face the Fat Reality'
'On To Iliad'
