I wrote in detail about Sonata Arctica on a previous post at the end of 2009 at the gig at JB's Dudley so will keep this one short.
SA never fail to deliver and always put out a powerful set.
Really enjoyed the Labyrinth set and it was great to have a chat with Andrea and Olaf afterwards. Andrea really reminded me of the late, great Ronnie James Dio in manner and sound. There is no bigger compliment than that.
Had heard some very good reports about Labryinth but had never really heard much of their stuff before. They are a metal band formed in 1991 in Massa, Italy.
Next band on were Triosphere from Norway who were formed in 2004 and have released 2 albums. Vocals and Bass are provided by Ida Haukland who can certainly belt it out loud.
Been really looking forward to seeing SA again and so was Marina who had never seen them before. We were in for a fast and furious night as 4 bands were playing!
First on were a local band 'Awake by Design'. They were actually not bad but the lead singer was totally over the top ! He thought he was something between Freddie Mercury and Bono as kept running off into the crowd.
