Wacken Open Air XXIII
(Pentax K-5 with Sigma AF 70-200mm 2.8 EX DC APO HSM II)
As it was that nice, let's remain here! To speak of Manticora as rookies would be out of place as they are existing in that way since 1996 already and brought clear power metal to stage.
There was not much more around since Eschenbach to that early hour, the number of persons may even have decreased but nevertheless Manticora tried everything to spread good moods what mostly was successful. The fingers were whipping across the finger boards and singer Lars Larsen was swirling his thatch again and again. Still that was not mine although perfectly presented. I had seen it already in a better way. But overall it was quite good to view the whole gig (also if it was like nearly every gig at the tent quite short) as outside the tent it was pouring down (the ground was nearly starting to dry, in each case it could not remain like that ;-) ). So Manticora was a quite good musical interlude but nothing more.
