One hour before the opener band plays we went get some lunch and exploring around the Stage ground to see what is something new this year. but it seems nothing changed as like last year and this is the exceptionally great compliment. that only changed this year is more bands are playing and more great line up, that all what we need as a music fan of metal, also the event organizer seem want to make more better, making things as comfortable as possible for bands and fans. around 9000 visitors are joined at Party.san this year it seems more that last year, it was quite crowded in stage ground on the fist day of Party.san.

Never hear the band before but they are quit interesting which Death metal mix with Back Metal and some great groovy tempo change, bring crowded and warm atmosphere at the time which great live performance for opener band.
following after the first band a Black Metal band from Stockholm, Sweden Mörk Gryning. stroke according to the old recipe and very Melodic keyboard. Simply took elements that were present in the works of their contemporaries and mixed them together, most black metal from this period centered on such things, but the creativity of the musicians involved made each band's interpretation worth listening to. was great performance which covered with artificial blood and dressed in a hood .
Continue with Gruesome the Death Metal from the US, As Death influenced which frontman Matt Harvey a members of band Exhumed. So you could not get the full Exhumed package, but the four of Arroyo Grande had a few nice grooves in stock, which could quite encourage the head shaking.as Death Metal project Gruesome is humbly determined to keep Death’s classic sound alive as faithfully as possible. In addition, the band also plays the first time in Germany.
A Swedish progressive Black Death band from ArvikaTribulation. every impressive live performance which unique, crazy outfit and awesome face paint , not even that they are really tight at the show especially Jonathan Hultén the guitarist never stay quiet always move around the stage, try to keep contact with the audience.who is very amusing and likes to play with a cheerful pirouette, contributes very much to a lively and dynamic mood. seem all the audiences are enjoyed all long the show.
Time still keep moving quickly next is the fifth band gonna hit the main stage of Party.San Necros Christos a Germany Black/Death Metal from Berlin. Even at that time wasn't good weather but there still crowded and The mood is gloomy of the audience, creates a gigantic, heavy and, above all, black sound wall. However, the musical inspiration comes more from the Eastern folklore, especially of Persia, India, and the Arab countries.which modern sounding, blast beat -lastiger Death Metal bands.
The Norwegians Heavy Metal Arcturus,as influences and incorporating elements from all over the musical spectrum including black metal and classical music.although the Norwegians actually not even want to squeeze into the progressive drawer because even this is too restrictive. With a well-known cast Hellhammer of Mayhem, Vortex as ex-bassist of Dimmu Borgir as well as Sverd, Skoll and Knut Magne Valle as Ex-Ulver-members makes the band attention.
The Polish Black Metal Mgla, Magla in Polish language means Fog with pronounced as "mgwa". Formed in 2000, mostly they are using a session guitarist and a session bassist for their performances. The Polish outfit truly nailed that maddeningly delicate balance between raw aggression and melodic atmosphere, The powerful rhythms create a powerful dynamic, which discharges itself in grim applause storms.without a word to the densely crowded crowd and extremely precise.

Time for the Headliner Paradise Lost. the Gothic, Doom Metal from Halifax, West Yorkshire, England, are considered by some to be one of the pioneers of the death-doom and Gothic Metal genre. they are also celebrated old songs like "As I Die" or "Hallowed Land" although was a bit rain come down and windy on that time, cold and unpleasant drizzle have been around for a while, but of course the hard boiled festival goers can not be influenced, was enjoyed to see them all long the show while drink beers.
