Live report SAXON / DIAMOND HEAD / ARMORED DAWN, 013, Tilburg, 27.02.2018

Veröffentlicht am 28. Februar 2018 von Markus W. in Saxon, Diamond Head, Armored Dawn, News, Heavy Metal, Power Metal, Classic Metal, NWoBHM, 013 Poppodium, Live Review, Live, Tour, Rock Hard Festival

It was an ice cold February evening when British metal icons Saxon had a stop at 013 in Tilburg to warm up the city with some hot metal riffs. No less than the legendary Diamond Head joined Saxon on their European tour and it was Brazilian metal newcomers Armored Dawn who got the opening slot in this package.

 

The first time I saw Armored Dawn on stage was when they opened for Fates Warning a few months ago and the impression I got wasn‘t the best. And since the new longplayer wasn‘t the most exciting one either I was curious about what they guys from Brazil will offer that night in Tilburg, being the opener for Saxon and Diamond Head. In general I must say that the guys did a much better job than earlier. They could create some reserved excitement in the first row and earned some well-meant applause at the end. As on the album, guitars were spot-on and also the sound they got was better. The biggest challenge though for Armored Dawn is their singer and frontman Eduardo Parras. He tries hard but there are much better metal sirens out there in the metal universe. All in all Armored Dawn showed some improvement and a solid show - not more but also not less.

Diamond Head‘s concert was the first highlight tonight. The band, known by many from the Metallica’s cover version of  „Am I evil“, preformed a professional and dedicated gig that was full of hits. The temperature in the venue immediately rose by the first riffs of guitar icon Brian Tattler. The guitarist is the only remaining founding member and driving force behind the band since many years. He and his three band mates showed that night how classic metal should sound like if being performed with a lot of passion. Next to Tattler it was vocalist Rasmus Bom Andersen who is not only an excellent singer but also a great frontman. Constantly in motion it was him being an engine of youth on stage with great vocals and agile stage acting. He was constantly motivating the crowd to be loud, and fans reacted accordingly. In the end each of the guys on stage obviously enjoyed playing live and fans rewarded this attitude with more than just a warm applause. Diamond Head was a true special guest for Saxon and since the guys aren‘t around too often, it was a pleasure to witness their show in Tilburg, a concert with the earlier mentioned „Am I evil“ as the Grande finale with audience being a huge choir for the chorus.

After warming up the crowd in such a good way it was an easy thing for Saxon to take over and turn the venue into a metal madhouse. I have seen the band several times over the last 6 years and they never disappointed. It‘s the combination of almost 40 years experience in rock, terrific songs and powerful stage acting that makes each Saxon concert to a special moment. The guys play together in the same line-up since many years and you can see and hear that the chemistry is there. It’s a blindfolded interplay and interaction that grew over many years, leading to a dense and powerful sound that builds the base for 90 minutes of metal delight.  As if it would be the most natural thing on earth Paul Quinn and Doug Scarrett create enormous riff power while it’s bassist Nibbs Carter who spreads the metal virus by a pounding bass play that‘s heavier than what you get to hear on any album. 

Saxon ignited a firework with old classics that were highly anticipated by fans. And it has been the new songs that fitted perfectly into the context by creating a seamless experience of rock that night.

As frontman Biff Byford said: „It‘s Tuesday - and it feels like fucking Friday“ and what he meant was the metal party vibe that filled the venue. Saxon might get older, but they are in an impressive shape and form. These guys are metal pioneers and it was the big crowd at 013 that rewarded all the band’s effort with horns up and an enthusiastic applause at the end. 

I‘m already looking forward to see the quintet from England again on this year’s Rock Hard festival where Saxon headlines one day. ... And Saxon plays on. Hopefully for many more years.

German metal pioneers Sodom are confirmed for this year's Rock Hard festival and what's even better is the fact that it will be the very first show in the new line-up. Sodom grew to a quartet that includes no less than Frank Blackfire who was part of the band in the late 80's. Furthermore it's Husky and Yorck Segatz who complete the line-up that will premier in Gelsenkirchen in May this year - home-game and oldschool. Something to really look forward to.

Next to Sodom also German thrasher Traitor have been confirmed.

CD review WHITESNAKE "The Purple Tour (Live)"

Veröffentlicht am 30. Januar 2018 von Markus W. in Whitesnake, News, Deep Purple, David Coverdale, CD Review, Live, Classic Rock, Rhino, Hardrock, Rock

CD review WHITESNAKE "The Purple Tour (Live)"

(*/10) After having released “The Purple Album” in 2015, David Coverdale and band mates hit the road for promoting the new release, an album that pays attention to Coverdale’s Deep Purple days. “Burn” and “Mistreated” have been some classic of MK3 and MK4 that acted as a centrepiece for “The Purple Album" and it’s songs from those days that also have been part of each of the shows.

Whitesnake recorded some concerts of this tour, leading to a live album entitled “The Purple Tour”. The newest Whitesnake offer comes in different formats. Base for this review is the audio version (the album is available as CD, LP, CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray).

Like with the studio album it’s Deep Purple milestones such as “Soldier of Fortune” and “Burn” that have been performed and captured. No doubt, if you haven’t lived under a rock over the last decades you know these rock anthems by heart. However, it was a good idea to vitalise and cherish these songs that fundamentally shaped rock music in the 70’s.

Since it was a Whitesnake tour also some hits from David Coverdale and Co. have been part of the setlist. There can’t be a Whitesnake show without playing ”Still of the Night”, “Is this Love” and “Here I Go Again”.

All in all “The Purple Tour (Live)” is a well-done live release with classic rock highlights that are timeless.

CD review BEASTO BLANKO "Live from Berlin"

Veröffentlicht am 15. Januar 2018 von Markus W. in Beasto Blanko, Hardrock, Live From Berlin, Rock, Live, Berlin, Tour, Rat Pak, CD Review, News

CD review BEASTO BLANKO "Live from Berlin"

(*/10) American rock outfit Beasto Blanko releases a new album during January. It features the live recording of the band’s show in Berlin in 2016. The quintet, fronted by Alice Cooper bassist Chuck Garric and Alice Cooper’s daughter Calico Cooper, was the opening act for German rock band Böhse Onkelz on their tour through Germany in late 2016. One of those shows has been performed in Berlin at Mercedes Benz Arena, a concert that was recorded and will be released as the Beasto Blanko’s first live album.

It‘s rather unusual that a band publishes a live recording with only two studio longplayers being listed in the discography. However, letting go the opportunity to record a show in front of thousands of rock music fans feels like a weird thing too. 

The album contains songs from both studio albums, with „Feed My Frankenstein“, the Alice Cooper cover, being the best-known one. „Live from Berlin“ comes with a great rock spirit that‘s captured on the record. The power of hard rocking music can be felt with each song played that night, supported by a solid production, which provides a sound that is energetic, dynamic and not too much overdone.

„Live in Berlin“ is a good live album, done by a band that obviously lives rock’n’roll. It’s a longplayer that’s entertaining and provides pleasure. “Live from Berlin”some summer feelings into grey European winter days.

Live review THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA, De Helling, Utrecht, 13.12.2017

Veröffentlicht am 22. Dezember 2017 von Markus W. in The Night Flight Orchestra, News, Live, Tour, Classic Rock, Rock, Hardrock, De Helling

Live review THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA, De Helling, Utrecht, 13.12.2017Live review THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA, De Helling, Utrecht, 13.12.2017

Even though Utrecht, The Netherlands doesn't have an airport there was a first flight that left from the Holland's 5th largest city. It was The Night Flight Orchestra that invited for a flight from Utrecht with De Helling being the airport and starting point for an exciting trip.

Boarding started at 19:30 and went smoothly. Things were well arranged and step by step the room get filled with people, all having in common some excitement about this thrilling event.

The Night Flight Orchestra's crew includes eight members: Björn Strid, Shalee D'Angelo, Jonas Källsbäck, David Andersson, Sebastian Forslund and Rikard Larsson. This six-piece line-up gets support by two 'stewardesses' adding some great background vocals to the total.

Departure was scheduled for 20:30 and things started on time. The Night Flight Orchestra took off for a 90 minutes flight through the world of classic rock. Of course it was the excellent third album "Amber Galactic" that stood very much in  focus and songs like "Midnight Flyer" turned the venue into a glamorous rock'n'roll party, incl. everything from headbanging to dancing. Tunes like the highly melodic "Domino" are true earworms that generated even more enthusiasm in the room.

After one and a half hours flying time the journey came to an end with a rock solid touchdown in form of the 'classic' "West Ruth Ave". Even though it was a rainy and stormy night, it looked like nobody regretted having joined this journey in rock. 'Flights' with The Night Flight Orchestra are rare but extremely joyful. I would recommend to regularly check their 'flight' schedule since it is a trip you will remember in a very positive way.

FATES WARNING announces European tour dates

Prog metal pioneers Fates Warning announced some tour dates for Europe.

All of the upcoming European shows will be recorded for a live release to be mixed by Jens Bogren, who last worked with FATES WARNING on their “Theories Of Flight” studio album. The band commented the live release plans as follows:

“It's been 20 years since we released our only live album, “Still Life”. It's time for an update! In January we'll be recording a series of shows in some of our favorite European cities. The best of these will be included in a live album to be released in 2018. While we haven't decided on the final set list yet we're planning on about a 2 hour set with as little overlap as possible with the “Still Life” album. Hope to see you all there!” – Jim Matheos / FATES WARNING

CD review GHOST "Ceremony and Devotion"

Veröffentlicht am 13. Dezember 2017 von Markus W. in Ghost, Rock, Hardrock, Classic Rock, News, CD Review, Live, Spinefarm, Loma Vista, Ceremony and Devotion, Heavy Metal, Papa Emeritus III, Ghoul

CD review GHOST "Ceremony and Devotion"

(*/10) Seven years of Swedish rock outfit Ghost can be summarized as a roaring success story. The band, being the brainchild of Papa Emeritus III (Tobias Forge), began as Ghost B.C. back in 2006 and a debut that was published four years later. “Opus Eponymous” was the name of an album that got immediately good reactions from media and fans. The album was the starting point of an extremely successful journey in rock with two more longplayers cementing Ghost’s importance in rock. Even a name change to Ghost (without ‘B.C.’) couldn’t stop Papa Eponymous and The Nameless Ghouls.

What was missing so far in Ghost’s discography was a live album, a gap that will be closed as we speak (CD and LP mid-January 2018). “Ceremony and Devotion” is waiting in the starting blocks, ready to be released. The Swedes recorded the album during their North America tour in summer 2017 and will feature 15 songs (plus 2 extra tracks on CD & LP). Even though it was the ‘Popestar’-tour, it has been the highly successful “Meliora” and “Infestissumam” that stood in focus during these live shows. Songs like the opener “Square Hammer”, but also “Cirice” and “Year Zero” have been performed in front of enthusiastic fans, an atmosphere that’s captured on the album very well.

“Ceremony and Devotion” is a comprehensive summary of Ghost’s achievements up-to-date, provided with an excellent sound that reflects the live spirit in a good fashion. This album is a completion for fans and an interesting starting point for Ghost-newcomers.

Live report DOOL / WOLVENNEST, Paard Van Troje, Den Haag, 02.12.2017

Live report DOOL / WOLVENNEST, Paard Van Troje, Den Haag, 02.12.2017

Dool is still a fairly new band with band members reflecting the best Dutch dark rock/metal has in the offer. Each of the five guys has a proven track record in rock and combining forces leads to this powerful dark rock outfit. Some intensive live shows and an excellent debut where the pillars to date for a fast growing fan base. 

I had the chance to witness one of the first Dool shows in March this year, which was a great experience. Based on that, the level of curiosity was rising the moment the band announced some NL shows in late autumn. One of these concerts took place at Paard Van Troje in Den Haag. The show was announced at the smaller of the two rooms with Dutch Wolvennest being the ones who got the support slot.

Before Ryanne van Dorst and Co. entered the stage for another impressive concert it was up to Wolvennest to get folks into the right mood. The sextet did their best and managed to drag already quite some people into the room. 30 minutes of dark ambient noise rock filled the venue. Three guitars delivered some mighty riff power, introduced and ended by some spoken words of the 'faceless' monk. 

After a quickly done stage remodeling Dool started into the night with a short intro and "The Alpha". The Rotterdam-based powerhouse didn't waste any time. These guys have been present with the first tone played, leading to an almost 90 minutes shows that was even better than the March one. Dool gained experience over time. The density of Dool's sound was already striking in March and the fact that the guys played quite some concerts from then till now even intensified a Dool live set. Folks welcomed and enjoyed every minute of the show, a concert that included with "Love Like Blood" an superb cover version of the Killing Joke classic.

Time was flying and after 1 1/2 hours it was "Oweynagat" that ended one of the best concerts this year. Dool's music is made for smaller venues, kept in dark. Such an ambient supports the gloomy basic mood that is weaved into each of the tracks. Dool is far more than just a shooting star. These guys came to stay and the Den Haag show was another step on an exciting journey into darkness.

 

Setlist:

  1. Intro
  2. The Alpha
  3. Golden Serpents
  4. God Particle
  5. In Her Darkest Hour
  6. Vantablack
  7. Well's Run Dry
  8. The Death of Love
  9. She Goat
  10. Love Like Blood (Killing Joke cover)
  11. Oweynagat

Live report VANDENBERG'S MOONKINGS, De Boerderij, Zoetermeer, 18.11.2017

Veröffentlicht am 3. Dezember 2017 von Markus W. in Vandenbergs Moonkings, Hardrock, Classic Rock, News, Live, Live Review, De Boerderij, Zoetermeer, Adrian Vandenberg, RUV

Live report VANDENBERG'S MOONKINGS, De Boerderij, Zoetermeer, 18.11.2017

A couple of weeks a Dutch guitar wizard Adrian Vandenberg released, together with the Moonkings, a new album entitled "MKII". To also bring these fantastic new songs on stage, the quartet scheduled some shows in The Netherlands, of which the Zoetermeer gig was one of. 

Fans of classic rock couldn't wish for much more. Bandleader Vandenberg obviously enjoyed every minute of this concert and it was his soulful but also energetic rocking guitar that built the foundation for exiting 90 minutes. Folks were delighted by tunes from the two Vanderberg's Moonkings albums, a setlist that also comprised with "Judgement Day", "Sailing Ships" and "Here I Go Again" three Whitesnake classics.

Furthermore there was emotional moment of AC/DC's "Highway to Hell", played on the day one of the biggest rock musicians, Malcolm Young, passed away. After such a touching moment it was "Love Runs Out" (One Republic cover) and Led Zeppelin's  rock anthem "Rock and Roll" that rounded off a great night in rock.

Here are some live pics from this night...

Vandenberg's Moonkings, De Boerderij, Zoetermeer, 18.11.2017

Before Vandenberg's Moonkings ignited a rock fireworks it was up to RUV, hailing from Enschede (NL), who did an excellent job as being the opening act that night. Without any stagefright the youngsters convinced fans in Zoetermeer with their well-performed blues/classic rock. It was fun listening to these guys and I guess we will hear more of them rather soon since talent normally succeeds. Thumbs up.

CD review BETONTOD "1000x Live"

(*/10) It was almost a year ago when German punk rock outfit Betontod celebrated their 1000th live show at Mitsubishi Electric Hall in Düsseldorf.
