The disastrous event resulted in 64 victims (including 4 of the 5 members from the band) and hundreds of injuries. The Romanian metalcore band from Bucharest was highly active from 2011-2015 until the untimely halt releasing new album "Mantras of War."
Now a year in passing, Universal Music Romania has released a charitable tribute album for Goodbye To Gravity including various artists such as Matricide, My Dying Bride, Tristnia, Eluveitie, Green Carnation, and more. Check out Matricide's rendition of "Rise From The Fallen" below.
Anna Murphy (ex-Eluveitie) has recorded a song for new Goodbye To Gravity tribute album "Back to Life."
"Through It All" is Murphy's new single off the album that contains Goodbye to Gravity songs recorded by various international bands. This is a charitable project as all the profits will be donated to the GTG members and families and to the victims from the Colectiv Club tragedy from Bucharest, Romania last year.
During the release show for Goodbye To Gravity's "Mantras of War" album, an unexpected fire from the pyrotechnics caused 64 total deaths (including 4 out of the 5 GTG members) and hundreds of injuries.
This new song was recorded, mixed and produced by Anna Murphy at Soundfarm Studios, mastered by Luculescu Alin Gabriel and can be heard below. Anna comments:
“"Through It All" is a fantastic song, I enjoyed making a cover version of it. The melodies and harmonies fit my style very well and I'm glad I could be a part of this. I can't find a lot of words for what happened at the Colectiv club. When I read about it I had just recently been on a tour where we played on the exact same stage, I still remember exactly how everything looked and how the show went. My thoughts go out to all the victims, recovering survivors and their friends and family. I hope all of you find inner peace and strength." More...
At the end of October, Goodbye To Gravity played a record release show at the Colectiv Club in Bucharest in which dozens were killed and hundreds injured when a fire broke out.
According to a new story from Classic Rock, the death toll has now reached 45, with Goodbye To Gravity's drummer Bogdan Enache passing away yesterday. An excerpt from the story reads:
He was the third member of the Romanian band to die, after their pyro display caused a blaze in which over 160 others were injured on October 30. Enache’s heart failed while he was being transported to Switzerland for burn treatment. Medical crew spent 70 minutes in attempts to keep him alive.
Guitarists Vlad Telea and Mihai Alexandru both died in the club, while vocalist Andrei Galut remains in a serious condition in a Netherlands hospital, and bassist Alex Pascu is recovering from surgery in Romania. 95 others remain in medical establishments across Europe.
Colectiv owner Alin Anastasescu and two associates were arrested and charged with homicide on November 2. Romanian prime minister Victor Ponta and his government resigned as a result of public reaction to the tragedy.
Metal groups from across the globe have reacted with shock to the tragedy, with Iceland's Skalmold the latest to issue a statement. The band comments:
"Skálmöld played the Club Colectiv last February and has played in beautiful Romania both before and since then. We have made great friends in promoters, club owners, local bands and of course the heartwarming fans. We lost many in this terrible accident and others are hurt. We are all hurt, the whole family. Words cannot change anything but we want you to know that we are thinking of you and that we will be coming back to Romania again asap. Take care of the ones who are hurt, remember those who lost their lives and stay strong. See you soon."
A night club fire during a metal show in Bucharest, Romania last night has led to an estimated 27 dead and nearly 200 injured. The fire happened at the Colectiv nightclub as Goodbye To Gravity was celebrating the release of new album "Mantras of War."
According to Telegraph.co.uk, the fire broke out due to fireworks or some sort of on-stage pyrotechnics getting out of control, but there has been no official statement from anyone yet as to the exact cause.
Our condolences go out to the families of the deceased and injured, and we'll keep you updated as more information comes in. Were any of our European readers at the show and can you shed any light on what occurred? More...
