Nightwish and Tristania

This was a day I always want to remember. Two of my favourite gothmetal bands share the big stage in Belgium. But like with every ‘golden’ day, even this one had some little spots; the venue wasn’t that nice. The stage was big and beautiful, but the wooden floor and the high roof made it very cold. The sound wasn’t perfect either and I had flashbacks to the summer festivals. Although the conditions were not fantastic the show was impressive and made me forget everything else.

Nightwish and Tristania

Outside it was frosty and inside there were fire & water. That´s how you could describe the “Nightwish” show in Trier. About 4700 people were running to the “Arena” to see “Tristania” & “Nightwish” this night. The venue was full with fans waiting for the show.

I have to confess, that I never have seen any Nightwish show and  I was dying to see them live.

Ancient Rites

Ancient Rites is a melodic metal band from Belgium. The live CD, “The hordes stood as one” is from 2002 and they are busy with a new CD. It was a long time ago that Ancient Rites gave a concert in Holland.

E-Werk, Cologne, Germany
Cradle of Filth, Moonspell

As bizarre as the band itself, are their fans. So more than 2000 people with black and white painted faces made their way to see "Cradle of Filth" in Cologne.

Tiamat, Theatre of Tragedy, Pain and Sirenia

It is obvious in this tour that Swedish bands get along well. Sirenia, Pain, Theatre of Tragedy and Tiamat all have something to connect them to this country. Maybe that’s why this evening has a rather dark atmosphere. Tiamat is the band which lifts this atmosphere to a higher level and makes the entire audience get goose bumps. They may have been around for a while but the bombast and charisma is so obvious.
