The Wind Creek Events Center in Bethlehem, PA, recently played host to the Psycho Thunder Tour, a night of electrifying music featuring three distinct bands: Zero 9:36, Asking Alexandria, and The HU. Each band brought their unique sound and energy to the stage, creating an unforgettable experience for the audience.
The evening began with the genre-blending sounds of Zero 9:36, led by Matthew Cullen, a rapper, singer, and musician from Langhorne, Pennsylvania. As a relatively new band on the scene, they quickly captured the attention of the audience with their fusion of electronic music, hip-hop, and rock. Their set featured a mix of their hits and newer material, showcasing their versatility and ability to engage the crowd. Standout tracks like “The End,” “Stuck in My Ways,” and “Adrenaline” had the audience nodding their heads and fully immersed in the powerful, yet melodic sounds emanating from the stage.
As Zero 9:36 left the stage, the anticipation for Asking Alexandria grew. The British heavy metalcore band, consisting of guitarists Ben Bruce and Cameron Liddell, drummer James Cassells, lead vocalist Danny Worsnop, and bassist Sam Bettley, took the stage with a burst of energy, immediately commanding the attention of the entire Events Center. Their set was a powerhouse performance, interlacing their new tracks with iconic songs like “Into the Fire” and “Moving On.” The band’s evolution over the years was evident, as lead vocalist Danny Worsnop navigated between raw screams and melodic singing with ease.
Finally, The HU took the stage, bringing a completely different atmosphere to the venue. The traditional Mongolian folk-rock band, founded in 2016 by producer Dashka and consisting of members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush, transported the audience to the vast landscapes of Mongolia with their unique integration of traditional instruments like the Morin khuur (horsehead fiddle) and throat singing. Their set included fan favorites like “Wolf Totem” and “Yuve Yuve Yu,” as well as new tracks that showcased their fresh approach while staying true to their roots.
The juxtaposition of The HU’s traditional sounds with the modern rock setup had even the most die-hard metal fans cheering and chanting in unison. The spiritual dimension they brought to the concert was a testament to the power of music to transcend cultural boundaries and bring people together under one roof.
As the night came to a close, it was clear that the Psycho Thunder tour’s stop at Bethlehem, PA, was more than just a music concert; it was an experience that showcased the beauty of music’s universality and the power it has to bring different worlds together. From Zero 9:36’s modern hybrid sound to Asking Alexandria’s raw metalcore energy, and culminating in The HU’s ethereal traditional vibes, the lineup provided a unique blend that left a lasting impression on all who attended.
For anyone still on the fence about attending the next stop of the tour, this isn’t just another concert—it’s a journey through the diverse world of music, and an experience not to be missed.
