Live photos: Saint Asonia, Bad Seed Rising
Review by Greg Maki
As all the members of Saint Asonia have said since the band went public in May 2015, frontman Adam Gontier (formerly of Three Days Grace) insisted onstage at Baltimore Soundstage that this is not a “supergroup” or a one-off deal. He said this band–also featuring guitarist Mike Mushok (Staind), drummer Rich Beddoe (formerly of Finger Eleven) and bassist Corey Lowery (Eye Empire, Stuck Mojo, Dark New Day) intends to be around for a while. If performances like this one on a Sunday night in Baltimore are the norm, that shouldn’t be a problem. (more…)

For most of the afternoon, they waited under the hot August sun as their numbers grew along with their anticipation. All had come for a singular purpose: to partake in the rituals of Ghost–rituals that, on this day, were to be a new sort of experience compared to those with which they may have been accustomed.
Just prior to the hour of 4 and 30, Sound Garden proprietors beckoned inside the gathered masses, hundreds quickly filling the store, voices ready to join in the performance to come, hands prepared to clap and cameras set to capture the action.
At 5 p.m., a door opened and two Nameless Ghouls–masked, dressed in black–entered, climbed the steps to the small stage, where acoustic guitars waited for them. Then followed the “new” face of Ghost, Papa Emeritus III, wearing an elegant suit today instead of his normal papal attire.
The ritual was about to begin … (more…)
