Dog tired, by the fourth day, we arrived a little later than usual, missing, nice Swedish hard glam rockers Dust Bowl Jokies, funky Canadian corpo rockers Danko Jones, as well as the vintage propositions of Jared James Nichols. We got to watch a tiny bit of Electric Boys on the Rock Stage, who were… Read More

Following a good night’s sleep and getting some stuff from a local supermarket, we returned for the third time, to the festival grounds, this time, without having to grind through heavy traffic. We did watch the last song of impressive looking all female Suiss metallers, Burning Witches, after an… Read More

Due to it, being Sweden’s National Day (Thursday 6th June, as we found out later – Go Sweden!) there was more traffic on the roads than usual, so despite our best calculations, we only managed to arrive midway Blaze Bayley’s show, missing Canadian’s The Wild! completely. The former Iron Maiden… Read More

After a friend bailed out on us, me and my good friend and huge KISS fan Achilles, got onboard the plane and landed in Copenhagen (since it easier to get to Solvesborg that way) on the 4th. A reasonably priced car hire (100€ for 5 days + 55€ gasoline) and a couple of hours later, we were at the… Read More

We start at The Good Mixer to catch sleazy glam rockers Indya kick off the day’s proceedings. Sounding like a cross between Marilyn Manson and Suzi Quatro, the five piece make one hell of a noise and go over very well with the crowd.   A brief wander down Camden Highstreet takes us to The Lounge… Read More

First up are fast rising stars Collateral. This four-piece is currently creating a buzz that can’t be ignored and watching them it’s not hard to see why. Opening their set with the good time riffs of “Big Shot”, the band are flying with frontman Angelo Tristan leading the crowd all the way. Whether… Read More

For some bizarre reason I was under the impression of a starting time at 20.30 (so I missed the beginning of Thy Darkened Shade’s set, which was deeply disappointing as they were the one out of two Greek openers that were opening and the one that seemed more compatible to Watain’s style. Their… Read More

Starting off the set with the high-energy tune “Sugar Rush”, the audience understood rapidly that Daxx & Roxane was going to give them everything they’ve got – and they were more than happy to accept this offer!   The one-hour set was a mix of their classic anthems, a few exciting new ones and… Read More

Opening his set with a joyous run through of Muddy Water’s “Tiger In Your Tank” , Joe proceeds to play a superb set of songs from his most recent album “Blues of Desperation”. While the album is very good, it’s live that the songs really come into their own, with a horn section giving them that… Read More

I was able to walk into the club, midway through Crossing Eternity’s short set. The Swedish/Romanian combo forms a rather decent prog power band, with cool ideas and more than adequate chops. Their vocalist Berti is not your typical wimpy tenor, spitting his guts out, but has a rather pleasant… Read More

Hardly a band has ever influenced the German musical scene so deeply and keeps it heavily fascinated! Oomph! combine many music style such as metal, industrial, alternative rock/metal, electronica and gothic to create their sound. Their style changed over the years, especially from their first… Read More
