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.
Four metal bands of which all of the musicians are pure eye candy. Nevertheless, skills, hard work and talent over looks, all of them are first of all brilliant musicians, there is no doubt about it. I am talking about Ad Infinitum, Butcher Babies, Amaranthe and Beyond The Black. Stadthalle Offenbach seems to be the adequate size for these four metal jewels. The tour is double headlined by Amaranthe and Beyond The Black and was postponed several times due to you-know-what. Now there are no restrictions and the party can begin.
Epica have just released their epic album "The Alchemy Project" featuring many interesting artists usually known from all but symphonic metal genres such as Björn "Speed" Strid, Niilo Sevänen or Sven de Caluwé or the legendary Uriah Heep keyboard veteran Phil Lanzon.
KiaRa is one of Imperial Age’s two female vocalists – beside Jane Odintsova. She released her first solo album “Storyteller” in 2020. In her own words, “the sound on this album [Archangel] is much higher quality and professional than on the first one album ‘Storyteller’. The music is also more mature.” I personally liked Storyteller for its roughness quite a lot, let’s see and hear about the progress now.
We are in the middle of spring 2022. Less and less tours are cancelled. More and more tours catch up the more than two years delay. One of them is Thundermother’s Heat Wave Tour 2022. It already started in March with some UK-dates. With an interruption in between it restarts again at Bensheim on Tuesday 17th of May. It will continue by September 2022.
