About: First Aid 4 Souls was started as a project only some years ago, but the group really has quite a long past. It is the practical successor of the band Vacuum, which was started in 1992. Vacuum became one of the most significant bands in the Hungarian industrial music scene, having performed countless concerts in Hungary. There are distinct religious, philosophical and magical traditions making appearances in their themes. They are constantly moving toward the essence behind this existence believed to be reality.
Performance: The show put up by First Aid 4 Souls was energetic and really did not need too much encouragement in order to go off. Just the first signs of action on stage were enough in order to catalyze a crowd in front of the stage, and within minutes it was unclear whether the band get their energy from the crowd, or viceversa – either way the outcome was a feel good atmosphere with intricate electro and industrial hues, which hailed many, and was welcomed by the first dance moves. Their show of lights and visuals was amazing – closeups on piercing eyes, facial morphs, radar scans, melting scenery. “Agony” stayed in our ears and hearts way after the show and it’s definitely on our playlist for our next party or radio show!
