Goffertpark Nijmegen (Netherlands)
Right after the tornado called Avatar raged across the Main Stage I went again over to the tent. Here it should be a little bit calmer with the American progressive metal band baroness. Singer and guitarist John Baizley was giving it everything just like his allies Gina Gleason on guitar as well as Nick Jost on bass and Sebastian Thomson on drums.
I have never heard of them before but the songs of their three so far released albums were very catchy. Very nice was the repeated change between the calm parts followed by really energetic ones. It should have been songs that were played only rarely on tour and it was also not a tour that belonged explicitly to one of the released albums (especially as the last release formed by “Purple” was already some time ago). The audience liked it very much and so you were not only able to see joint headbanging but also the arms up in the air again and again. I liked the performance very much but unfortunately, I wanted to have a quite good standing place at the next act on Main Stage Alestorm which was why I left already before the end of the set. Nevertheless, Baroness is absolutely recommendable.
