Wacken Open Air XXII

Wacken (Germany)

(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)

Saturday noon and the last day should start in the tent in front of the WET stage with the Swedish newcomers of The Murder Of My Sweet. They were really happy an announced directly in the beginning that they finally signed a record deal at a German label for the production of their next album. Since May they additionally changed from line-up point of view by the new bassist Teddy Westlund and the guitarist David Sivelind.
Music was played too and that from their first longplayer "Divanity". From style point of view I would put them into the symphonic metal area. Due to the time there was not much going on in the tent but anyhow front woman Angelica Rylin and her guys knew how to enthuse the audience. Musically they did not reinvent the wheel but the whole stuff was presented quite convincing. Again and again the audience was encouraged to go with them and guitarist David Sivelind as well as bassist Teddy Westlund were posing temporarily in a competition. In each case a quite nice start into the day.
