Dallas, TX – Tuesday, May 16th Gas Monkey Bar & Grill hosted a packed house of long and short hair metal fans with one of metal’s wildest circus freak shows Avatar. A band from Gothenburg Sweeden that emulates a little bit of Alice Cooper and a fraction of Marilyn Manson. Nonetheless, they have their own look and loyal fan base who sang to every hit Tuesday night.
Decked out in Circus style avant-garde, full dreads and makeup Avatar is a spectacle for the eyes. Musically speaking the band is extremely tight hitting every note all while thrashing and head banging with hair twirling high. Lead singer Johannes Eckerström seduces the crowd with wild-eyed antics and Gene Simmons style tongue extensions. Drinking from a lawn shed gas can between sets he keeps the crazy going nonstop.
Avatar is now touring across the U.S. and Europe on the heels of their 2016 studio album Feathers and Flesh. With one of their singles “New Land” hitting the top 20 on Billboard Rock charts and an astonishing fable style space video this wild and crazy band called Avatar seems bent on continued madness.
