Wacken Open Air XXV

Wacken (Germany)

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

Contrary to Arthemis the tent was more filled and the mass was waiting eagerly for the dark rock band Lacrimas Profundere from the Bavarian Waging am See. Also they are already existing since 1993 and have passed a huge number of redeployments but that are the only two similarities to Arthemis.
The five men on the stage (singer Roberto Vitacca, the guitarists Oliver Nikolas Schmid and Tony Berger, as well as bassist Clemens Schepperle and his twin brother Christoph on drums) were creating significant darker and less forceful mood. The songs performed by Roberto Vitacca very intensively were really impacting the audience that listened attentive. Partially the combination of melancholic music and the appropriate lights on stage was making ones feel gloomy but nevertheless knew to enthuse. Their creative work is formed by 11 albums of which I am not able to say which songs they played. I only know that they really impressed me and perhaps I will take a look at another concert of them if they will be playing somewhere nearby.
