The show of a cool electronic band among endless teethbreaking events of the heavy metal stars is like an oasis in the centre of the desert. The visit of the heartkiller Chris Corner on the first day of winter spring was possible in frames of the project of the concert agency Atom Entertainment 'Clever. Music that is not for everyone'. The musicians attended Belarus and brought their new album 'Metanoia', which turned out to be gloomy and atmospheric. IAM{X} – is not just music, but mixture of Depeche Mode and Cannibal Corpse in the shadows of the movies of David Lynch.
The show started with an hour's delay and instead of 20:00 the musicians came out after 21 o'clock. The atmosphere on stage was like the cover of 'Metanoia' – just as gloomy and cold. During the whole set Chris has been inn the dark giving no chance to see his face and look into hiseyes. Everything started with the German lessons with the song 'I Come With Knives'. There was a video on 4 screens, which perfectly corresponded with everything Corner was doing. Here we could see suffering, long falls and endless melancholia. The introduction of the new album started with 'Happiness' and 'No Maker Made Me'. The first one is a well-known hit with a pretty good video. Slow and exciting motives of 'Happiness' turned into more dynamic and distinct ones of 'No Maker Made Me'. 'Everything I believed has died so silently, now I live on a wire chasing shadows'. There's no evidence who made Chris Corner, but definitely not the Creator.

The beauty of the current set of IAM{X} was in the alternation of rhythmic dance beats and slow exciting motives. It created the feeling of harmony and integrity with the audience. 'Oh Cruel I Darkness Embrace Me' is the other 'dark thing' from Metanoia, and hearing it live can't be compared to the recording. 'I Know the People Need Love' is one of the best works of Corner, 'Spit It Out' opens the second part of the concert. 'I want to know how to survive in the nigh tlife' - asks the singer in 'Nightlife'. The track rocks the dance floor harder than gusty wind blows off the trees. After the storm there's always calm. It was represented by two more tracks from the latest album: 'Insomnia' and 'North Star'. The last one becomes the most exciting part of the evening – Corner screams at the top of his lungs. The main set ends with 'Aphrodisiac' and the Depeche Mode-like 'Black Celebration' with 'Your Joy Is My Low'.

The band doesn't return for encore right away. The stirring waiting takes five minutes that feel like eternity. IAM{X} kiss and burn, fly and go down. Sometimes there was a feeling that walls in Re:Publuc started moving. The last chord was 'I am Terrified'. Chris demonstrates extreme pain and fear: parting with the audience he grew fond of comes sooner than the fire of passions that took place this evening.
