After the days started quite lively with Anwynn directly afterwards with Benighted Soul from France another promising band was following. Although they already exist since 2003 they released their first album "Start From Scratch" not until 2011. Their style can be called progressive rock but there were also some symphonic elements within.
Front woman Geraldine Gadaut knew to continue from where Anwynn had ended. She was supported by guitarist Jeremie Heyms, bassist Jean-Gabriel Bocciarelli, keyboarder Flavien Morel and drummer Nicolas Adam. The atmosphere still remained very good and the driving songs did one more thing (OK, one sonft song was also featured by "Stranger Me").
Unfortunately the five French only had a very short slot that very quickly was over. You would like to have heared som more but sadly the tight schedule did not offer space ofr that as behind the stage the next act already was waiting for their gig.
