Wacken Open Air XXV

Wacken (Germany)

(Pentax K-5 with Sigma AF 70-200mm 2.8 EX DC APO HSM II)

After I took it easy on Wednesday it finally was the time in the evening where I went to see the second band of this year’s Wacken Open Air at the large tent. In this case it was something special as Ax ‘n Sex from Kiel were already there on stage at the very first Wacken in 1990 playing only in front of a few hundred people. After their disbanding in 1996 they called together the original cast specially for the jubilee. Especially front woman Suzie Lohmar knew to convince with her roaring voice and you could also not tell that the five standing on stage started practicing for this gig only shortly before this event. Everything seemed like they were standing on stage each day. The audience (not so numerous but very considerable especially for a Wednesday evening) honored this fact by being in a very good mood directly from the start. Not only during the faster heavy metal tracks but also at the slow songs there were the arms up in the air and it was clapped along. This encouraged the band even more and so the nearly 50 minutes passed by like nothing. It were nice and simple songs that made you want more but time has to prove whether there will be more gigs of that combo to come.
