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.
KiaRa is one of Imperial Age’s two female vocalists – beside Jane Odintsova. She released her first solo album “Storyteller” in 2020.

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.
Reflecting the reaction of the metalverse to the war in Ukraine and attempting to differentiate between morals and politics. War shifts priorities and reveals commercial interests above the moral of anti-war songs. Who is good and who is evil. It’s complicated!
