The Orange County CA. based heavy rock trio, Idlewar, had been on a tour of the UK, and the Cardiff gig was the final night before returning home. Its a couple of years since we’d seen them, but we really like their new album, Fractured, released on October 2018. Fuel Rock Club was busy - it had been packed out earlier for a live showing of a rugby match, and the waiting crowd were ready to rock when local youngsters, Excursia, took to the stage after quick sound checks.
It had been a few months since we saw them, and they have developed well in that time. They have a good rock sound, and are clearly influenced by thrash metal, if the vocals are anything to go by. They gave a storming set of their own music which was well received by the crowd.
