It is impressive how much better Burning Witches become from album to album. The evolution of the band is amazing. Laura’s vocals were about perfect, rough and to the point, the result of endless practicing, experience, training and discipline. Every time a member left the band, no matter if for good or bad reasons, the next one made the band even better. Especially Courtney is such a gem in this case, a real jewel of a guitarist, precise to the point. I believe, she was the last brick, Burning Witches needed for the next couple of years. She fits perfectly.
It has been quite a while since I last enjoyed Dutch Delain. I simply needed time to come over the loss of Merel and Charlotte. It finally led to a completely new line-up of the band with founder and keyboarder Martijn Westerholt remaining the only surviving original member. Support band of this tour is no other than Swiss shooting stars Illumishade around vocalist Fabienne Erni and guitarist Jonas Wolf of Eluveitie
If one headliner isn't enough for you, then go for a double headline show like today. Enjoy Gloryhammer and Beast In Black on their Glory and the Beast tour. They will be supported by Brothers In Arms. In arms? No, that's a song by Dire Straits, of course, they are supported by Brothers Of Metal.
Close your eyes while you listen to classics like "Child In Time", "Long Live Rock and Roll", "Stargazer" and so much more and you will realise, there is no difference to the original vocals. Welcome to legendary vocalist Ronnie Romero!
It is Christmas time 2023. Jingle Bells, Whamageddon, mulled wine and maybe a wee bit of snow come with it. But White Christmas is out of sight again. What we have instead are the Eisheilige Nacht Festivals 2023. Take the chance to enjoy this four-band package now.
I experienced four excellent bands though I focused on one band in particular. Ignea deserved and deserve all the attention they get and I really, really hope to see them again rather sooner than later with a full set. That doesn’t mean, I didn’t like the other bands, I just had my priorities with them.
Enjoy three excellent bands in a row: Atavistia's sound is best described as Melodic Death Metal. We get Metsatöll from Estonia and a really fine kind of folk metal. Skálmöld invite you to a journey to the land of unicorns, elves, Nordic sagas and gods. They had just released their latest album “Ýdalir”.
That is the perfect entertainment, a real Rock and Roll party. Usually, when a show is over and you got to go home, you leave after the last note or latest after buying your piece of merch or a CD. Not this time, Fire Rose join their audience immediately after the show. They also offer a free drink in form of a cask of apple wine to raise the glasses together for the sake of Rock and Roll music. It will take hours until the last guest leaves the venue...
Impressions from the M.I.S.E. Open Air [M:O:A] in Büßfeld back in June. The festival summer has gone with the wind or more precisely blown by the thunder in many cases. The hunger for more is growing already and thus a perfect moment to buy your tickets for 2024. Here, the visual will rule.
