Wacken Open Air XXI

Wacken (Germany)

(Panasonic DMC-TZ7)

The American trash metaller of Overkill were the first act during which I went back into the quite heavily burning sun in front of the True Metal Stage and I did not get disappointed.
Just like a hurricane Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth was swirling across the stage heating up the audience like nothing. So quickly the first circlepits opened remaining there until the end of the concert. With new songs like "The Green And Black" or old hymns like "Rotten To The Core" the atmosphere got even more heated up and one crowdsurfer after the other was handed over from the back to the front.
A great closure of the whole thing was found by "Fuck You" and "Overkill". Kudos to the performance of the "old men".
