Metal Female Voices Fest X

Oktoberhallen Wieze (Belgium)

(Pentax K-5 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)

After the day started already quite promising now the first downer came. Crysalis was playing symphonic metal with gothic influences. The Italians around front woman Ciara Malvestiti tried to extend the good atmosphere but somehow that did not work.
The songs were only average and not carrying the crowd along. Also Malvestiti could not fully convince me. She was singing a perfect soprano but she was not able to touch me with that. Also the rest of the band did everything to enthuse the audience but that reacted quite reserved to it.
The gig took roughly 40 minutes but that was enough to me. On of the rare downers of this years festival.
