Kamelot (+Delain, Battle Beast) – The Shadow Tour North America (Silver Spring, New York City, Clifton Park)

I've been following various bands across Europe for many years now and have visited many different countries this way, most of them more than once.

Certainly … Continue reading Carach Angren, Rotting Christ – Rituals Amongst The Rotten (Kulturpalast Hamburg, Musik & Frieden Berlin)

Arch Enemy, Wintersun, Tribulation, Jinjer – Will To Power Tour (Oberhausen, Geiselwind, Hamburg)

First of all... this is the longest headline on this blog so far and will probably stay the longest for quite a while. But with four amazing bands teaming up for a tour, what else would I do? To start with the conclusion - for me, this was one of the best band packages I … Continue reading Arch Enemy, Wintersun, Tribulation, Jinjer – Will To Power Tour (Oberhausen, Geiselwind, Hamburg)
