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)

Although the men of the band Stormzone were all shomhow older they nevertheless founded in 2004 initially and released in 2007 their debut album "Caught In The Act" as well as 2010 their current album "Death Dealer". The Northern Irish were heavily borrowing from bands like Iron Maiden or Whitesnake.
Musically they did not reinvent the wheel and at many songs you got the feeling that you somwhere had heared it somhow. But maybe that is just the thing why the audience was following them like they did. The atmosphere was great in each case. Singer John Harv Harbinson could convince vocally and also his colleagues were pulling out all the stops. They only had 30 minutes available buth that was flying by.
Overall nothing overwhelming but just the right stuff to relax before it was getting towards the finish in the evening.
