M.I.S.E. Open Air 2023 – galleries

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. 

No festival is ever going to happen if it is not for the crowd and more than anything the ones who make it happen. Meet the M:O:A makers, the ones devoted to the very depths of the core of their metalheart to their festival here.

 We ♥ Metal Drummers

They are always sitting in the back of their frontmen and -women. The spot light hardly ever shines on them as they deserve it for delivering the heartbeat of any piece of metal. Yes, there are examptions, such as the Apocalyptica’s original lineup. Then again it tells a story of the weight of a drummer for metal music as the first conceptional adaptation in Apocalyptica’s evolution was adding a drummer. Apart from delivering ‘just the rhythm’ the drummer’s traditional role all the more when on stage to keep the band together, orchestrating their play. Tiny in-ear helpers have taken over this responsibility often nowadays. And yet there are still bands performing greatly without! Let’s celebrate metal drummers in general by checking out “Spot on metal drummers – 1994” and “Spot on metal drummers – Marginal and the drumming heroes of the M.I.S.E Open Air by a gallery of metal drummers for them alone!
