Last time I met them on the Rock & Metal Day’z at Oscherleben when they opened the festival on Thursday evening. There they had already announced an autumn tour. Now the time has come, Friday evening, 29th Septmber 2023. We are right here at Café Central in Weinheim for the first show of April Art Change Tour 2023.
More than 1200 people gather inside Garage/Saarbrücken for a sold out show of Lord Of The Lost. 2023 is their busiest year so far. Album release a day before New Year’s Eve, chart position No. 1 for Blood And Glitter one week later, winning German ESC preliminary competition, the ESC itself, another tour with Iron Maiden are just a few milestones. It is their year, the year of Lotlmania.
I witnessed two Italian power packs. Both bands know, how to enchant the audience. The combination of Power Metal and Comedy Metal was incredible. For Frozen Crown the tour ends three days later. NanowaR Of Steel continue the second half with Tragedy as special guest. I hope to see both bands again this year, either on a festival somewhere in Europe or during another indoor show.
May the force be with you. That’s what we know since 1977 when Star Wars gave us A New Hope. The force we meet tonight is Twilight Force. During their Winter Wonder Tour they are supported by special guests Silver Bullet and Seven Spires.
Amorphis were co-headlining with Eluveitie with their special guests Dark Tranquillity and Nailed To Obscurity. The package delivered an energetic and passionate show night at Huxley’s Neue Welt in Berlin lately.
With Finntroll, Skálmöld and their support band Brymir a very fitting package is touring all over Europe these days. Let’s check on their Berlin tour stop and also cast short glance on Skálmöld’s 10th “Börn Loka” anniversary shows recently in Reykjavik.
