29 Years Ago: ADX live in Paris (French Speed Metal)

Live on this day in 1987 ADX played at Maison de la Mutualité, Paris. This high quality recording was released the following year as Exécution publique. Sounds like a large crowd; la Mutualité had a 1700+ capacity, similar size to the Astoria.

ADX stands for Acier DouX. It means ‘soft steel’, but soft in this translation refers to the melodic side of their music. It’s hard driving heavy/speed metal!

Any gigs we played, we met fans from unexpected countries… We met Scandinavian, South Americans, Africans, Asians fans… We never played in their coutries so they came… We don’t sold-out stadiums or main-stages it’s true but every gig we play is like a party and an opportunity to meet fans and friends.
