Metal Female Voices Fest VII

Oktoberhallen Wieze (Belgium)

(Panasonic DMC-TZ7)

We were getting slowly towards the end of the festival and only the two headliners were remaining. First was Doro. I am normally not a real fan of her, although I give her credits for everything she as women did for metal and is representing. This was also thought by the organizer of the festival honoring her with the Award for the most successful career. But the fireworks this little person showed on stage was really impressing me.
She was presenting a cross-section through her works together with Warlock and also of her solo albums. Very impressive her rough voice being so powerful for example during „All We Are“ and on the other side also very emotional like during the goose bumps giving song “Herzblut” which she was partially singing in French.
But the show was even getting better: At first she sang a duet „Walking With The Angles“ together with Tarja and during “Celebrate“ it gave a reunion with Floor Jansen and Liv Kristine.
In front of the stage people stood quite closely and the atmosphere was electrifying because there were a lot of explicit Doro fans. In my opinion this show was the highlight of the day and many others were just of the same opinion.
