Scott Stapp’s Powerhouse Performance: Art of Anarchy in Toronto

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend Art of Anarchy’s performance at the Velvet Underground in Toronto. This hard rock supergroup is a combination of Disturbed’s bassist John Moyer, twin brothers Jon and Vince Votta on guitar and drums, former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, and, as of 2016, Creed vocalist Scott Stapp. The band’s first album featured Scott Weiland on vocals.

From the moment Thal began playing his trademark double-neck guitar and Moyer powered up his bass, the atmosphere in the room was electrifying. The Votta brothers were mesmerizing as they blended drums and guitar in perfect harmony, with chunky riffs and heavy drumming enough to send a shiver down your spine.

The room was dark except for the bright spotlights that shone on each of the members. While Jon and Vince pounded away on their instruments, the drum kit was lit up from the inside with LED rope lighting that changed colour, creating an amazing ambience.

The set was short—only 11 songs—but I was so impressed with the energy the band put into each song and how they interacted with each other and the audience throughout the show.

Overall, it was a mesmerizing performance that left me wanting more. Art of Anarchy are definitely a band to watch, as their unique combination of hard rock and melodic metal leaves you with a feeling that is both energizing and relaxing. This is one show that you don’t want to miss.
