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)

Also on the second day the support for the Greek went on. With Meden Agan the opera singer (better diva) Iliana Tsakiraki could finally enter the stage with her own band after she already supported Eve's Apple and Skeptical Minds. The style of their music can simply be discribed by symphonic metal.
With them they brought songs of their album "Erevos Aeanon" and they were not that bad at all. Iliana was encouraging the audience all the time to go with them and was obviously enthused when they did so. But also the other band members had really fun during the gig. Finally the got presented a Metal Female Voices Award for the best cover artwork which was used by Iliana to thank everybody supporting them in their activities.
Overall not an overwhelming show but for that early time quite fair. Only the Within Temptation cover "Somewhere" where Iliana was supported by Visions Of Atlantis front women Maxi Nil as well as Karolina Peccan from Skeptical Minds could have been spared. This cover really was not an honour to the great original version. But let's forget it.
