Alte Spinnerei, Glauchau, Germany
29th October 2010
Letzte Instanz, Mina Harker

In autumn 2010, LETZTE INSTANZ started their new tour through Germany. The new released CD ‘Heilig’ (holy) was presented at the club “Alte Spinnerei”. This is a location between old industrial buildings and so, the sunny afternoon gave the evening a lot of warmth with it.

Mina Harker

MINA HARKER is a German gothic rock band, which has the gloomy legends and everyday truths accepted. This German singing band sets a good pace and makes it clear that they are here to win new fans. MINA HARKER's sound adds good, hard guitar riffs and the vocal power of lead singer completes the picture and it becomes clear that they are perfect as support for LETZTE INSTANZ. ‘Rache ist süß’ (revenge is sweet), a song that appears on the new album in February 2011, convinced the audience quickly. ‘Lolita’ was played and Mina - in a very sexy outfit - very wicked sings the first lines. MINA HARKER is much more than an opening act. Certainly they have gained many new fans with songs such as ‘Tiefer’ and ‘Der Letzte Kuss’.

Letzte Instanz

‘Schuldig’ (guilty) is only the first of a trilogy that continues with ‘Heilig’ (holy). And so the newly formed band with Holly Loose (vocals), M. Stolz (violin), B. Cellini (cello), Oli (guitar), Holly D. (guitar), David Paetsch (drums) and Micha (bass) has to perform some of the new songs to an expectant audience. /

Music & Performance
The lights went down, the curtain was illuminated red, and while the ‘Intro’ was played it shows the shadow of a cross that has become people: that’s Holly. Yes, he is the god of this evening. The set consisted of 25 songs and this was a very good mix of old and new pieces. It was surprisingly quiet in the hall when the new songs were performed. There was not much space on stage and that transmits the wild drive of the band onto the fans. Latest when ‘Tanz’ was played, the ice was broken: you could feel the heat in the club and in the hearts of everyone. Holly had a cold and his voice was not very powerful: “Ihr macht uns fertig!“ (You’re killing us). The fans had to laugh and the musicians gave their best. ‘Rapunzel’ was the highlight of the show and ‘Die Winterträne’ the romantic end of the night. With a clear conscience all went back home and everybody knew: LETZTE INSTANZ has played convincingly and they are on the right path to continue their trilogy.
