Watch: SystemHouse33 Unleash ‘Detestable Idolatry’ at Whisky a Go Go
The Mumbai-based thrash metallers performed at the legendary Los Angeles venue as part of their U.S. tour in May
SystemHouse33 may haveÂ only twoÂ international tours to their credit so far, but the Mumbai thrash metallers are quicklyÂ gaining ground with global audiences–frontman Samron Jude says they had aÂ front row full of American metalheads who sangÂ along with the band during their recent 20-date U.S. tourÂ in May. He adds, “It was amazing–we never expected that kind of a response in America, after the Europe tourÂ [alongside death metallers Six Feet Under]. Not only at the Whisky a Go Go gig, but at many other shows, people in the front were singing along to our songs.”
The four-member band–who released their fifth album Regression in March—toured the U.S.Â supporting death metallersÂ Dying FetusÂ as part of [American concert tour] Metal Alliance TourÂ and alsoÂ played metal festivals such as Slime Grinding in San JoseÂ and Mother’s Day Metal Fest in Cupertino, California.
The first liveÂ video from the tourÂ captures the bandÂ performing 2016’sÂ “Detestable Idolatry”Â to a packed Whisky a Go Go, the iconicÂ Los Angeles venue which has hosted the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Aerosmith and Pantera over 50 years. Says Jude, “It was overwhelming… it was so loud and so much fun on Sunset Strip. Everyone was out partying that night, and the venue was already packed by the time we played.”
