Saturday seems today are gonna be nice weather, a bit cold that yesterday but as long as the sun is shining everything are okay. one a glass of water and coffee that already make me wake up. Before the party is starting better to get some food and prepare some stuff. After breakfast went to Metal Mark and visiting some friends.
Today it will begin with goregrind mix of grindcore band from Sweden, Razorrape. The bands are good to entertain know how to handle with the audience for the early noon. which big circle pit continued in from the stage seems they have enjoyed the show most of the wearing unique costumes and holding toilet brush bubble pistols. They combine some more groovy elements with fat Guitar sound and the fact that the dual vocals (one by Martin, founder of the band, who also bangs the drums like they’re his slave) are making this sound even sicker than what it is. Putting these guys up as an opener for Saturday was apparently a good decision. Great show and There is a good mood preprogrammed.
A view minutes break and continued with the Swedish classic heavy rock, blues, and psychedelia band, Graveyard. Seem to have fallen out of time with their powerful retro blues rock. Show up visually and acoustically like a rock band from the late 60s. Served as a main course solid Death Metal with Doomigen guitar parts, which often drift off into the melodic. was quite crowded at the time. it was enjoyed to see the show while drinking my Caffe.
Next continued with a Finnish Melodic Death Metal Wolfheart. the formed in 2013 by Tuomas Saukkonen as solo project band. sound self-proclaimed as winter metal, which aggressive and full of energy mixed with acoustic and fragile, harsh black/death metal or atmospheric doom, very great full show even that was not kind the music I like. Harakiri For The Sky the Post Black Metallers from Austria, they have gained quite some popularity and it showed looking at the amounts of people that came to watch them, in my opinion, they are more into Melodic Death Metal that Black metal or post-Black metal which much more riff traditional of Death Metal in every song, great live performance full of emotion from the stage.
Next, a Norwegian black metal Carpathian Forest one of black metal’s nastiest and most misanthropic bands and a cornerstone of the early Norwegian scene. formed in 1992 by Nattefrost and Nordavind.one of black metal’s nastiest and most misanthropic bands, and a cornerstone of the early Norwegian scene. ‘The Fucking Evil Years’ combines all three of their Season of Mist recordings into one specially-priced package of rancid black filth and impurity. As well as more or less erotic accompaniment on stage shocks nobody today. Instead, Old Master Nattefrost has nestled with his men in rock-rolled black metal, who live beyond good and evil.
Move into Speed Metal from Canada Exciter. They are widely considered to be one of the first speed metal bands and a seminal influence of the Thrash Metal genre. Although I am not familiar with the classics of the Canadian trio, seem was not a lucky show for them, there had some technical issue, sound awry and creepy. The trio cast on the stage relentlessly reveals their disadvantages: The guitar solos create gaps in the sound that no rhythm guitarist is able to fill. On top of that, the excessive instrumental gnomes between the songs are just annoying over time. it can bee happen that the band some time in the moot to play and sometimes not. Sadistic Intent is a death metal band formed in 1987 in Los Angeles, California. They were one of the pioneering classic death metal acts in the area, they are one of the cult bands in the underground. With their brute power on stage, they also prove where they have this reputation. Energetic and active, like a cross between old Morbid Angel and Unleashed, the sound pleasure is clouded by the refreshing wind again and again. The Americans from LA simply tear the audience along and positive surprise.
Next time for the NetherlandsDeath Metal Band Pestilence. They are has been view time break up in 2016 they reunited once again. In the beginning, they are a Thrash Metal band Later they became a death metal band and incorporated more jazz and fusion influences in their music. I have been following the band since I know Metal Music but never see them in live performance now finally there they are standing at mainstage ready to make some noise. which precise tempo changes and nimble, downright evil-sounding, minor-key guitar work would help pave its ascent into the nether regions of death metal. very technical with mix old school and new school refs and very heavy. great and powerful live performance wich good reaction of the fans in front of the stage. Tribulation, The Swedish Heavy Metal, Black Metal, Psychedelic Rock, and Gothic Rock. In the beginning, they are known as Death Metal. This was the third time they are playing at Party.San. Catchy Heavy Metal sound come out from the mainstage which great full appearance on the stage especially of the Guitarist Jonathan Hultén, he never stands always move and dances in ecstasy across the stage. This is downright cinematic. Progressive guitars mingle with heavy death and black metal sounds, even that not my music style but just respect how they acting on the stage it was an amazing live show. Brujeria, the Grindcore band from Mexico, a bunch of crazy Mexicans who decided one day to do some of the craziest music which the theme of Cocaine, life, death, sex, political situations. Pretty much every hard subject you can think about, the music is an awesome, groovy kind of Death Metal that dabs into the realms of Grindcore for some great moments, and tracks as aggressive as “Colas De Rata” are just instant moshpit activators, whereas always communicate with the crowd is at its peak in this kind of gig, even making a few thousand people yell “Fuck Trump”, before the bass-layered “Viva Presidente Trump” before the next track are play, trying to make a joke story with Spanish language even most of the audience has no idea what they’re speaking about. With the small gestures, the movements, and the music tell the story almost as good as words. These know how to keep the audience happy.
Continued with Thrash Metal From Frankfurt am Main, Germany, Tankard. Most Metal fans know them, one of the old band from Germany long with Along with Kreator, Destruction, and Sodom, which always full of energy in every live show. The singer always keeps moving from the right to the left always try to keep contact with the audience. It was a good combination of Germany band play in front of the Germany Audience. Party San knows this because bands like Tankard and Kreator keep coming back to the festival, with good reason. The show they played was great as always and I was happy they involved some fire into the show because it was getting really cold on the festival field. Watain, i don’t know what I should say about them, just leave after taking view photos of them, I have been often seeing them in another festival and also the music what they play it not get me in touch.
Party.San, always great to be here which great festival atmosphere, it was not realized that the time running so faster 3 days fell like it was yesterday the festival begins. Look forward to the next edition of Party.San 2019! see you next year.
Friday the second day of Party.San which great weather sunshine. traditionally in Second of Party.San starts with Grindcore band. Their most of Grindcore fans with a special costume, toilet brushes and confetti in their hands moved towards the festival ground it was quite crowded for early noon in stage ground which is waiting for the party begins.
Start with a Grindcore band from Italy Guineapig. The circle pit started immediately, and happy people slamming and walking or running in circles were continually in front of the stage. Look very colorful at that time, which a lot of toilet paper and toilet brushes flying in the air. The trio Italian guys know what it takes to make wakeup and entertain the audience, which simple riffs with fat distortion guitar sound following groovy drum, growl vocal it makes you not just stand. Now I really wake up. It was enjoyed seeing their show, the great Opener band. Continued with Black Metal. The Committee, which may be referred to by bands like Dissection, Mgła or Uada. The band is completely masked and dressed in uniforms reminding one of the Soviet officers including, jackets, belts badges, and stars, which influence of Russian folk song mixed with melodic Black and Doom Metal. Although the group describes itself as apolitical, great musical specials the blastbeat drummer, but their not much movement on the stand is not really matching with the song what they are playing at the moment. Next, time for Deathgrind from France Benightedone of the band I’m looking forward. One of Europe’s best modern death metal, have delivered high-speed brutality for 20 years, with extremely catchy grooves and nasty grind attacks. Straight to the point and ultra-brutal, the fiver from the Season Of The Mist stable with the modern death steel at the edge of Slam Death beats which strong show that invites to propeller headbanging and stomps into the hearts of the audience, breathless circle pits that make you feel like you are just about to slaughter. The frontman Julien, who raged barefoot around the stage always in contact with the audience, which continued crowd surfing. It was a blast to see them even I show them many times, but it’s nice to have them here. The atmosphere Black Metal from Portland, Oregon USA Pillorian. Pretty young band the band formed in early Summer of 2016 by Stephen Parker “Maestus, ex-Arkhum”, John Haughm “ex-Agalloch”, and Trevor Matthews “Uada, ex-Infernus” with the goal to create a unique, sinister, and twisted style of dark/black metal. The atmospheric gloomy Pillorian sounds in combination with John Haughm’s throaty screams are predestined for this. The band members have grown audibly and noticeably through touring and present themselves as a stronger unit than in previous performances. Great sound very even some problem with sound technic but they still keep move. I’m not really into Black metal but this one I like mixed with some old school death metal riff and also the drumbeat Continued with Coffins the old school Death Metal from Japan. The fiver Japanese are playing their classic heavy metal with an enormous amount of the audience, playing the most heavy metal combos of the festival on the wall. As fast as the fists in the air and the hair fly in time. Guitarist Martin Jonsson and bassist Tobias Petterson are in no way inferior to the audience in terms of propeller-banging, while frontman Oscar Carlquist – true to style with studded bracelet and chain on the leather pants – makes it clear: “We are the commanders, you are the legions! And this is heavy-metal-tyranny. Simpler, grinding mid-tempo death metal, sometimes doom-grooving with ultralow-tuned guitars and even deeper vocal, every unique, morbid atmosphere. Next an American Death Metal/Melodic Death Metal band from Waterford, Michigan Black Dahlia Murder. With their mix of melodic death lead and furious Metalcore, they are the most modern Extream Metal band in this ere. with extremely catchy grooves riffs. The performance of the musicians impresses: Every raging guitar-tapping, every demanding drum-fill sounds in rarely heard precisions the guys moved on to tunes such as “Matriach” and “Nightbringers” with its many shift-changing tunes and subtle breaks, attracting even the toughest people around to bang their head from time to time and release a little steam. created a massive Circle Pit will turn up full and make for movement in front of the stage. Was strong and powerful live performance. Deserted Fear the Death Metal from Thuringia. which combine an old-school feel with a more modern approach, and this defines their sound quite well, as these three guys grew to be pretty big in Germany with their last two full-length albums. The flamethrowers ignite in moments that were not so agreed. So the long, flowing hair of the guitarist almost captures fire. Of the technical mishaps, however, the guys can not audibly bring out of the concept. Their death lead creates a great mood in the audience, which always emphasizes how honored it is to be able to perform in such a season in front of such enthusiastic audiences, the deep growls make them completely unrecognizable. The drummer works the bass of the drums almost to death. Happy and not without having collected plenty of sympathy points, it seems like PartySan is their home turf for them. Continued with the legend of Thrash Metal from USA Exhorde, which two successful full-lengths in the 90s, they were view time break up. now they are here with us. In the live presentation, the classics of the two to date only albums of the group – “Slaughter in the Vatican” and “The Law” – have lost none of their power. Since they have new member they band work more solid and sound more powerful, With indomitable playfulness and tons of groove. while tunes like the religion-hating “Slaughter In The Vatican” made the crowd go crazy for the these Thrash veterans. It’s was an amazing show with full of energy on stage. Unleashed who do know this band one of the successes Old-school Death Metal from Sweden. They are very good and solid, with no major surprise. the die-hard fans with classics like “Into Glory Ride “And” Where No Life Dwells “as well as strong new numbers, Even “Death Metal Victory” comes across quite well, although I notice that the line between dull monotony and a catchy melody can sometimes be very narrow. Nevertheless, the appearance seems a bit old-fashioned compared to other bands even like that the crowd in front of the stage seem enjoyed the show. Time for Brutal Death Metal from USA Dying Fetus the band has been view time has been played at Party.San. seem they are a regular guest here. even like that most of Brutal Death Metal band are always wait for this one. the band always delivered most crowded. faster riff with blast beat drum sound comes out from the from the main stage. the trio of Maryland guys how to deal with the fans which mixed old school and new school style very catchy and groovy riff it makes not the audience just stay stand. big circle pit with a continued crowd surf make the security keep busy in fron of the stage. was great setlist like “Kill Your Mother, Rape Your Dog” short but a killer song. also with new song “Wrong One To Fuck With” which heavy, fast melodic, catchy and brutal, which classic death sound. was a blast to see the performance. Time for the headliner band, Black Metal Band from UK Venom. the band also one of the regular bands are playing at Party.San. It’s only natural that the most suitable opening track this evening would be “Black Metal”, only to be followed by the no-less memorable “Welcome To Hell”. Dante, who usually sits behind the drum kit, is recovering from an injury and replacing him was Karlos Bareham. The veterans of old Thrash/Black have continued with pretty much every other well-known song in their rooster, like “Buried Alive”, “The Evil One”, and they even finished with a sweet encores that included the mighty “In League With Satan” and “Witching Hour”, which in my opinion is the best Venom song. Great show but there lest action from the audience.
Not realizing how fast time is running away, they’re still one day more keep safe the energy for tomorrow coz tomorrow will gonna big day which great band is playing.
Finally, we arrive in early noon after a long drive, so crowed at the moment at the Gate to entering the camping ground, finally after 30 minutes we are here “Welcome To Hell”. Look like a very busy at the camping ground most of Visitor still builds own Tent as like us. After we are done builds our Tent start to exploring and visiting some friends get some nice Germany Biers while waiting the first band is entering at the Mainstage.
The weather is great which the Sun is shining, it’s seem gonna be a good start for the first-day experience at the Airstrip, around 2.30 PM come big exploding sound from Mainstage it means the party will begin.
As the first Band from Salzburg, Austria will be entering the Main stage, Our survival depends on the Us. Great atmosphere of Decoration, Fox head, antlers, bones and branches, they play their very Melodically and powerfully mixed with atmospheric Black Doom metal. Unfortunately, it brings your mind into nature atmospheric. After couples of the song there some problems with the sound, but the sound was getting under control. Was great opener band I was enjoying the show. Gruesome hit the main stage the second band Death Metal from the USA Explicitly asserted as a tribute to the legacy of Death the multi-state death metal project Gruesome was born out of guitarist/vocalist Matt Harvey and drummer Gus Rios’While playing classic Death. They played a great show that was truly worthy of praise and delighted the fans, as evidenced by the number of a metalhead in front of the stage. a truly great tribute band, not only authentically connected to the Chuck heritage but more than living up to it.
The old Black Death Band from Sweden, Unanimated which influenced melodic Death Metal. Brought life in 1988 with released two Album before disbanding in mid-1996: In TheForest Of The Dreaming Dead1993 and Ancient God Of Evil 1995. So expect nothing but evilness, blasphemy, and darkness clad in wicked riffs, haunting melodies, and grimmest vocals, in between classic Dissection and At the Gates very classic sound. The twin guitars to have an awesome cutting edge unheard in many melodic. Great performance which large audience in the early day of the first day. Dead Congregation next comes up onto Main Stage the, Death metal band from Greece. Present themselves in perfect harmony and dynamics and technique but also with a sense for songwriting through their set. Not longer than half set to come up the deep black storm clouds it getting more and more which following by wind blowing harder and harder seem a big Storm will come soon after view second come warning alarm telling to all visitors that they should leave the festival ground immediately. It was chaos at the time everything flying in the sky, in 20 minutes the storm destroyer all around the festival area which a lot of tents are broken. Thankfully, no one is injured. It was all so scary.
After the Storm is gone the situation come back normal, which continues with Anaal Nathrakh and no band was failing. The British band which experimental in the sense of an extreme Metal mixture of Grindcore and Industrial Metal it very quite unique. Unlike most of the genre-representatives, the naming has here exceptionally nothing to do with anal penetration, but comes from the movie “Excalibur” and means something like “snake breath”. Completely brutal blast beats, unrestrained distorted guitars and a gripe from another star are combined with sonic clean vocals. And that was well received. A completed infield celebrated the British and their innovative art. Destroyed and delivered sympathetically. Definitely the surprise of the festival!.
Continues with American classic of the Thrash Metal band Toxic Holocaust. The US boys from Portland convinced with their punk influences and fast-paced songs with their powerful thrash metal. mood, the fans were in their spell and made for the first crowd surfers with songs like ‘Wild Dogs’, ‘Nuke the Cross’, Reaper’S Grave or ‘War is Hell’. Their raw energy with simple riffs, but very aggressive war great show and a lot of fun to see them all along the performance.
Time for the Canadian the Black Death Metal band Revenge. The trio with the unreadable logo is certainly not for everyone.“ Us And Them” opened the mighty setlist, whereas right after it, came “Traitor Crucifixion” when James and Chris alternating and trading some of the vocals between them to create a massive wall of anger and fear. The band continued to alternate between older and newer material, hate-filled Noise Black Metal that is hard to beat for hatred, anger, and destruction. The greatest appearance of the evening follows now.
Because of the Sandstorm in the early noon, it makes the schedule is delayed for an hour, usually right now Master’s Hammer will enter the main stage, but the schedule is the changes which the legend of Black Metal from Norwegian is singing on the main stage, Emperor. One of the biggest Black Metal was known as one of the most infamous Norwegian black metal bands during the early and mid-1990s, which regarded as highly influential by critics and emerging Black Metal. The band played as well as they are a good show. But as typical of Black Metal with a certain distance to the audience. A variable light show also enchanted the eye. Especially pleasing that other colors are used except red and fog. The fans celebrated the band and thanked it with applause and the headbang. Was good to see them here at PartySan, for me they are nothing special but, they are really good at music technic.
The last band for the first day of Party.Sun 2018 Master’s Hammer the Czech Republic Black Metal, Experimental. They have experimented with electronic sounds or an Avant garden Metal which incorporate with Symphonic Metal. They celebrate with all their experience and stage presence Great melodies meet a sovereign performance and distinctive rough voice interweaves with the heavy sound instrumental work to a mystical ritual which impression of being more into a black metal opera. Seem most of the audience are enjoying the show even that not my music style, but it still funs hanging out with a couple of friends while watching till the end of the show.
Well, it was an awesome day and a lot of experience for the first day of Party.San 2018. Before we hit back to the camping site, we when into the Party Tent, listening to some metal Dj, where most Visitors hang out after the show. Looking forward what the new experience for the next day.

We hope that on the second day Party-San is better than the first day, but today it looks the same when I am wake up in the morning it still rains and it does not stop. just hope it will be stopped before the first band gonna play at Main stage. after few hour wait finally rain are stop but from far away seem the black cloud is moving to us seem gonna big rain is coming again, just hurry to get some breakfast and after that prepare our stuff for second day adventure at Party-San.
Today will gonna start with party Circle Pit as a tradition at Party-San on Friday which Grindcore band is opening the Main stage. it has quite crowed at the time which most of the Audience wearing a funny costume waiting for the party with Gut. Gut is a Germany Grindcorband band. which style is characterized in comparison to the classic slower and rock as simple, but they seem not a Grindcore there something missing in the Grindcore category. anyway, the band can reach to make all the audience wake up to get warm which big a Circle-Pit in middle stage ground with all kinds of funny characters, who were running around in a crazy way.
The real legend of Underground Death Metal from Finland Demilich, which formed in the early 1990s. since 1993 the band has been few time are reforming. even though their only album is almost 25 years back. The applause after their appearance was great and the guys had deserved it. with delivers nasty old school sound it made the crowd going crazy. it was a great performance.
Continue with Thrash Metal from New York Demolition Hammer. The crazy New Yorkers were back with a bang and it’s a bang that would not leave ahead in an upright position. with brutal raw sound, pounding songs puked out by angry old men, it has been delivered what a force, and what kind of energy they had. Steve (vocals, bass), who told the crowd that they just are not crazy enough and he wants to see more crowd surf come to the stage. I think that the amount of “fuck” that was said during this gig was surpassed by nothing or it was a lost of the words to say. it was fun to see them on the stage with groovy and catchy sound.
Next will join us on the main stage a Melodic Death Metal from Finland Kalmah. even the band are not my taste but they are all very good musicians and great experience in live performance. The band influenced by death metal, Thrash Metal, and Speed Metal exhibits some neo-classical metal elements in their music along with prominent keyboard melodies.
Finally the band I was waiting for will hit the Main stage Vital Remains. The band I wanted since before to see in live now they are in from of me. after few minutes after check sound come a guys from backstage walking into font stage with a book in his hand. I was thought he will read the book but not I was burned the book. it was vocalist Brian Werner very ceremoniously burning with a torch an old testament. to begin to distribute wax and speed with “Where Is Your God Now” took from the late album from 2007 “Icons of Evil” where already we could enjoy riffs brilliantly interpreted and of Brian Werner in all his splendor to the voice, it was impressive which speed and brutal sound faster riffs mix blast beat a drum and very technical with an awesome guitar solo. “Icons of Evil” where I emphasize the double hype that at times looks like a machine gun; guitarists capable of combining murderous rhythmic foundations, what for a great show it was a blast to see them here at Party-San 2017.
Uada a Melodic Black Metal from the USA will hit the stage, the 4 guys are wearing the black hoody and covered the face it was remembered me some of a band from polish Mgla. With their only album so far, “Devoid Of Light”, they have powerful material in their luggage and manage to cover the festival area in the dark despite the persistent daylight. The four characters, who also make themselves at Pillorian and Infernus, play their set down fast and error-free and leave tons of satisfied festival visitors. Very strong performance.
A Finnish Pagan Metal mixture elements of folk and Black Metal, Moonsorrow. the guys entering the main stage with a white mask with splashing blood on their face and body which hastily presented their old sound, seem ready to bring a darkness atmosphere for us. which are black metal in basis, but add more melodies to their sound, an epic feel. “Jumalten Aika ” which sounded forceful and precise followed by the magnificent and intense” Suden Tunti “. In the final track came “Sankaritarina” and “Ihmisen Aika (Kumarrus Pimeyteen) which demonstrated all their quality with epic melodies, great choirs and quite aggressive. great performance gives the length of the songs might have been somewhat short in duration.
Unwittingly the time passes unnoticed, which five bands are gonna play on the main stage. before the next band hit the stage it time gets some food and grabs some more beer. from there corner, we can see all crew are busy at main stage prepare for the next band Aura Noir. the classic Black Thrash they are has been at Party-San more lest for 7 years ago. the band Sounds like venom in hard and shreds like hell. great musician tight performance.
The Polish old-school Death Metal from Vader. although are rain but most of the fans of them going crazy waiting for the show begin, the most of metal head know them the band has been delivered many great albums. The band was formed in 1983, the same year as the first death metal pioneers Possessed and Death but at that time Vader was a Heavy Speed Metal band after they are developing into Thrash Metal and finally Death Metal which brings out the first demo album in 1986 “Live in Decay”. They are unique and had own characteristic music style and killer sound with mixed from faster in to slow riffs and groovy. which great melodies in every single track. it makes all of the audience going crazy with circle pit and continually crowd surf make all the security keep busy. it was great to see them and listening all great track from them. killer performance.
The South Carolina Death Metal band Nile. The mix between rough Death Metal and Egyptian, brutal riffs combined with melodies that will obviously remind you of the Middle East, definitely catching on. I’m just curious with a new member of Nile, without Dallas Toler-Wade on the stage, it weird. but what I hear from the stage the band seem are the same as Nile i know before. they did good work the band still worked as like usually.”Unas Slayer of the Gods ” “Sacrifice Unto Sebek” was awesome and excellent Egyptian atmospheric intro. both of the track blows me up and most audience going mad down the stage headbang and crowd surf .was excellent show great sound and awesome setlist.
Almost the end of the event today on Friday at Party-San which a Swedish Doom Metal Candlemas come up next at Main Stage. The band had a problem with the Airplane which some of the luggage and music equipment are relocated. they must borrow some of the equipment from another band that they can play. They started their recital so that to the rhythm of the intro were leaving the members of the band little by little until the appearance of their vocalist Matos Levén, to open with ” Mirror Mirror ” The voice and the stage presence of Mats Leven take the attention of an audience that responded to each one of the provocations of the same one. awesome performance but that band are not touching my felling it feels no something special from them.
The last band which the headline band to close of the Main Stage on Friday Autopsy. A death metal band, founded in 1987 in the United States by Chris Reifert and Eric Cutler. the band was broken up in 1995 and reunited in 2009. they band was one of a pioneering band in the death metal and death-doom genres. which Chris Reifert the drummer as vocal, he seems enjoyed from back the drum. growling while playing the drum. it was awesome it hard to sing in same time play drum. it was excellent with roaring guttural, crude and sustained guitars and most of the old school and slow deep riffs, like “Critical Madness” That riff is incredible but simple. very tight show and good atmosphere in the public for the land band.
Was a great time, showed a lot of great bands hang out with friends, even the weather is not so friendly just hope my Tend are not wet that I can get some sleep and save the energy for the next day.
After one year waiting for one of great Festival open air. Party-San. how excited we are can’t wait until we arrived there, which interesting band line up want to see today. But we cant made it because we had a problem with our car on the way. The first begins after around 80 km we are drive and the car started strangely and which some light machine is turn on. around 2 hours we wait for someone to fix the car and finally can continue to drive which hopefully that car can bring us to Schlotheim but it comes to the second problem that car cant move anymore which must bring to the car workshop to fix. we get the exchanges but we must wait around 4 hours. finally, around 08 PM we can drive and about 09.30 PM we arrive at the camping ground.
Dawn of Disease that was the first band we see at Tent stage. The Germany old school Death Metal with hardness and melody, subliminal harmonies and killer riffs are accompanied by rapid blast beats and pounding double-basses which between dark growlings and aggressive screams vocal reaching delivery big crowd on the time in Tent stage. Even we are not seeing from the beginning but the guys can bring up all the audience into crazy the big party in Tent stage.
Continue to the Main stage catching Germany Black Metal Urfaust which dark blue light come out from the Main stage seem to look matching with a black Metal atmosphere. they delivery us an intense show with the ambient melody took over the darkness night, which seems as though the atmosphere was nice, the rain and the darkness of night gave more emphasis of ambient sound come from the stage. Even as the show is started in same time begin a big rain seem most of the audience tried to find staying at the Main stage ground enjoyed all along the show.
Rain, windy, wet and could mix together just hopefully rain stops when the legend of Thrash Metal band from the USA hit the Mainstage. After few minutes break after the check sound done time for old school Thrash Metal Overkill ready to begin the show although the weather gets worse wind mix with rain it was very uncomfortable. the frontman Robert Ellsworth best known as Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth, always pay attention always keep in touch with the audience he knows how to keep his fans keep busy down the stage. even it was uncomfortable cold and silence on the bones as but the audience still enjoy es such of the tracks of “Rotten To The Core” from “Feel the Fire”, “Rattlesnake Electric” classic and “Hate” with. was very tight performance.
The Highline of Party-San on Thursday Abbath, where is a somewhat humid atmosphere and with the night entrance, was ready to unload on the Party San, where appeared with some delay. With a lot of solemnity in the atmosphere and with his traditional start spitting fire, which at times may be something comical and even he takes it with a little guile, Abbath and his were throwing their Black Metal more accessible for labeling it somehow and where it is logical a good part of the show was supported by the band that made known to him, Immortal. The most followed of the song track were are took from some track from Immortal, like the crude “One By One”, with an outstanding game of lights that gave more emphasis to its action. There is a clear difference between the songs themselves and those of Immortal, which are obviously the most followed in a concert that became somewhat linear and despite the game of lights and fire, he lacked some hook to connect to most of the public. even I show them few of time but always nice to see them again here at Party-San. great performance as like usually.
Although the weather today is not so friendly as like last year which most of the time rain and wind but it is nice to be here again. After the last band is done we move to Party Tent grab some Bier join to some another friend enjoying to listening some music from DJ before we hit back to our tend to sleep.
Just can’t believe how quick the time is running and today is our last day in this beautiful place, Tolmmin. We had really great time and a lot of fun, meet new people, new band, party, hanging out at Soca river beach ground, even was at the first-day and the second day we had not nice weather. Today our plan is going to exploring the festival area get some photos that we couldn’t make before and then get some chillout at beach ground. About three hours already we were exploring the festival now to for us move to stage ground before the first band play at Boško Bursać Stage second stage. Today begin with Martyr the opening band (Boško Bursać Stage) Symphonic Metal band from Spain. At the beginning, they are more into Death/Doom Metal.which female vocal. The band sound kind like a colossal mix of instruments with the orchestra complimenting the voices while haunting choirs are chanting unearthly melodies. with great composed quieter moments such as the acoustic which has strong traditional Folk leanings throughout and is faultless in its delivery. A great opening band very relaxes and great atmosphere. Next, the Germany Blackened Death Metal/Grindcore/Crust band Implore. The band was founded in August 2013 which band members from Barcelona, Berlin, Linz and Milan great combination. Sound kind old school classic Death Metal which mixed some Grindcore, Crustcore and Black Metal very interesting and great sound.There were bands like Nasum, Trap Them, Converge, Origin and Napalm Death among as influences whit lyrics talking about such as religion, fascism, animal rights and human rights. is just too sad that they are playing early it was not crowded enough for such great band like them. Still at the second stage (Boško Bursać ) the England Progressive metalcore Loathe. The band has been categorized as progressive metalcore, metalcore, death metal, nu metal, progressive metal, and experimental metal seem they are influenced by Slipknot, Deftones, Korn. Catchy riffs and groovy with a breakdown which delivered great sound it makes your head will move to follow the sound. was great performance even that was not my music I listening but they are great band thumbs up to a great job. Time to move into the main stage (Lemmy Kilmister) to see the opening band for the last day at Metaldays 2017. A Thrash Metal band from Munich, Germany Mynded. Has been in the constant line-up since September 2012. Mynded The name actually means Mind Dead but they don’t want to put a name band with 2 words. Simple and catchy tune comes out. good to make war up for the audience even there was not so crowd enough but slowly they come out to join with them at the main stage. Very tight performance. Hell the legendary an English heavy metal band from Derbyshire. They were amongst the first bands to wear proto-corpse paint as part of their stage show. Although they were largely ignored by the media and record companies in the 1980s, their music became known through the underground tape trading phenomenon, and the band achieved a degree of cult status. In 2008 they reunited and were signed by Nuclear Blast. Their first full-length album, Human Remains, was released in May 2011. Their progressive musical style incorporates elements of thrash, power, symphonic, gothic, speed, doom and black metal, encompassing great variety. As the frontman “David Bower” said “We are Hell from England, formerly of Europe. This is what happens when you let stupid people vote” To the joy of many, Dave descended among the crowd to baptize the audience at the end of their set. Before the next band is hit the main stage we go back into the second stage (Boško Bursać ) to join a party with a Gore Grind band from the Czech Republic Spasm which the lead singer wears a thong and a Borat one-piece bathing suit and with white cock mask, they are very unique which not guitar player I can say they are gigolo goregrind Drum ‘n’ Bass band with low tempos and chunky riff it solidly within slam territory with chromatic punctuated by a couple of prowling bass breaks It makes the sound heavy as hell and stupidly violent, delivery of big circle pit which forming a colorful, with full of Confetti fly in the air and massive soap bubbles and a freak.even I show them already view time but it always nice to see them live performance. Next is a three-piece heavy metal band from Swedish Grand Magus at the main stage. While the Beggars are more in the traditional Deep Purple/Mountain camp of early rock/metal, Grand Magus originally opted for a bluesy, stoner-laced doom vibe, heavy on the early Black Sabbath riffing and tempos, As always the bands performance is spot on with their heavy sound always kept intact despite only being a three piece they built a solid relationship with the audience. The German folk metal warriors Equilibrium seem ready to begin the show. they juggling the stage with replicas of trees and an imposing backdrop it matching of the atmosphere their music. Which tends to alternate between epic fills, double bass segments, and harsh blast beats the drum, harsh vocals with raspy black metal styled screams, groovy which very catchy riffs and melodious sound. it was truly creating epic atmosphere. they bring big crowd at the main stage on the time which continuously the crowd surfers during their performance. Still at the main stage where the Swedish project band called Pain just finish check sound see they are ready to begin the show. The band is a project band mixes heavy metal with influence from electronic and techno music. as a beginning, it was just hobby project from the frontman Peter Tägtgren who is also the vocalist/guitarist of Hypocrisy. they are is currently on tour promoting their latest release “Coming Home”. The mood was perfect throughout the show. perfect and it was very tight performance. but unfortunately we cant stay until the end the show because we must move to the second stage wanted to catch up Sinister. As we at second stage we just surprise it was crowded which colorful of the light and loud and heavy sound is come out from the stage it seems the show already started just lucky that we missed a couple of songs. The old school death metal from Netherlands Sinister, one of the bands we are waiting for. Sinister, in my opinion, one of the best was creating Death Metal tune back in the early/mid 90’s. they bring full of energy for the audience which keeps the circle pit are going on and the crowd surfers keep continuing during their performance. was great to see them live performance again, just forget when it was the last time I show them and also it would be great if they are playing at main. At the main time, it was crowded at the main stage after few minutes soundcheck is done, finally the headline band Heaven shall burn were ready begin the show. The Melodic Death Metal band from Germany are delivering a strong show using fire show elements, with the heavy participation of the moshing fans who are busy participating in the big Circle Pits and the Wall of Death and crowd surfing did not stop for a second but for the pauses between the songs. very tight performance even we cant stay until the end of the show. Because it was overlapped with the last band at the second stage. The headline band and the last band of the festival Death Angel an American thrash metal band from Daly City, California. one of the successful in Thrash Metal music genre every and have been in many concerts around the world. now they are here join with us on the last day of Metaldays 2017. Death Angel always a delivery big crowd and they gave an exceptional show it makes all of the audience goes crazy which circle pit getting big and bigger during the show and also crowed surfer. what for an amazing show which closed the festival with a violent. What for the amazing time we had since the beginning of the festival until the end during 5 days we had a lot experience and excellent time meets new band that we never show before especially a new newcomer band, meet the peoples that we meet here every year and also meet new peoples. just can’t imagine how fast the time is running.
