Metal Female Voices Fest VIII

Oktoberhallen Wieze (Belgium)

(Pentax k-x with Tamron SP AF 17-50mm 2.8 XR Di II LD Asp IF and Sigma AF 50-150mm 2.8 EX DC APO HSM II)

The Saturday was opened by the British band Pythia. Compared to the year before it was starting a little bit later (only at 11:20) which did not increase significantly the number of visitors. For a band it is always hard to play as first one and then additionally in front of so few people but front woman Emily Alice Ovenden really knew to thrill the audience vocally and from show point of view.
The band played really good prog metal of their debut album "Beneath The Veiled Embrace". In my point of view a really great band that made a really good start into the first festival day and for sure will not disappear comletely.
