classic metal

Hammerfall live in Athens 2018

Going in the club just a shy few minutes after seven, Armored Dawn were already on stage, numerous as they are, a sextet blasting out some pretty standard shouty power metal that might have had the best of intentions, but didn’t quite seem to resonate with most of the fans that were there by this point. Their frontman Eduardo Parras was trying hard to turn the tides, but I am guessing that despite their best intentions and efforts, it all seemed to be a little in vain.
 

Fifth Angel - The Third Secret

Returning after heck 29 years, with an album and having only performed for the public for the second time in 2010 and without the original singer, Fifth Angel is a band that could and should have been big, since the talent that they had in their ranks was phenomenal… and they were on the branch of a multinational (ie Sony’s Epic label) yet mainly due to timing and nonmusical issues were held back.
 

Ross The Boss live in London 2018


Uproar are joining Ross for the whole tour, and we were lucky enough to catch the second leg of the tour. They hit the stage with a proper classic heavy metal show. They cleverly built the layers up through mixing vocals, two guitars, deep bass, and smashing drums.
 
The performance was enhanced with the minimal but atmospheric lighting; the dark room was set off by a single white light behind the singer, catching his long hair like a halo, although he is anything but an angel.
 

Kamelot live in London 2018


The blue lighting added to the mystical feel and seemed fitting, since we were in the Electric Ballroom. Then the lights went down as the band entered the stage and excited cheers echoed about the crowd. A single white beam hits each musician as Cellar Darling started to play. They started a slow beat, heads down, and then Anna entered the stage. Her beautiful folk and fantasy singing both contrasted and complimented the heavy metal drums and bass.
