DEVIL’S NIGHT AT THE CASTLE

Motionless In White brought their intense goth/metal show to probably the busiest music venue in southern Illinois, The Castle Theatre in Bloomington.  I talked with some of the fans before the show and found that they had come as far away as southern Indiana just to see this amazing performance by Motionless In White.  They knew what to expect and MIW delivered.  Opening the show was “The Defiled” from London, UK who were easily my favorite of the supporting acts on this tour.  “For The Fallen Dreams” and “Like Moths To Flames” delivered great performances and the energy in the building was growing with each act.  After a quick set change the moment finally arrived that we had all been waiting for as the lights dimmed and MIW took the stage with “If It’s Dead, We’ll Kill It” exploding out of the amps.  It was obvious we were in for a killer show.  Singer Chris ‘Motionless’ Cerulli kept the crowd under his spell while the band blasted out 9 songs from their 2012 Sophomore album “Infamous”.  As expected, Motionless In White provided a very exciting and visually stimulating show with a gothic look, wicked lighting, a hooded keyboardist (Josh Balz) and a bass player (Devin ‘Ghost’ Sola) who resembled a twisted cross between Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice.  The lyrics from the supercharged hit song “America” and the encore “Devil’s Night” seemed to really resonate with the crazed fans that remained smashed against the barrier as they bounced up and down, fist pumped and sang along with the band for the entire set and there were even a few crowd surfers.  This is a short tour for Motionless In White as they continue to work on what is being called one of the most anticipated new albums of 2014 and are getting set to rock the main stage of the Warped Tour all summer long so go check them out!  MIW ROCKS!    photos & review by Michael McMillen
