Sunflower Dead - C O M A

When California based quintet came out with their first two albums, the 2012 self-titled debut “Sunflower Dead”, and the 2015 release “Time to Get Weird”, they established themselves as an up and coming heavy weight band. With their constant touring in support of those albums and their theatrical makeup and stage show they built up their fanbase. With some upheaval in the band, and a new record on the horizon, it was time for a new direction. They ditched their makeup and refocused their sound to match their new look.

Generation Axe at Hard Rock Live Orlando in Florida 2018

The format of the show is simple, all five of the guitarists hit the stage for an opening number, then they each come out and show the crowd what they can do individually and with a little help from their fellow guitarists, then finally they close the show together. While this may sound simple, when you get musicians of this caliber in one place, you never know what can happen.
 

Ghost live in Florida 2018

For those that don’t know Ghost, the band was formed by Tobias Forge back in 2006 in Linkoping Sweden. As the music they were creating was unlike anything that they had created before, the band decided to take on a more theatrical approach and the Forge adopted the persona of “Papa Emeritus” and dressed in Papal garb, while the rest of band donned black outfits and masks and would be known as Nameless Ghouls.
