Just got back from a 4 day Metal bender in Melbourne.
3 Nights of Amazingggg bands.
Edguy and Cynic
Both were fucking awesome, Cynic have a very relaxed stage presence but still manage to send everyone wild.
Edguy were just incredible one of the best live performances I've seen. Tobi is just the funnest guy ever.
Dark Funeral and Rotting Christ
Dark Funeral headlined, and they sucked... Boringest shit ever. Nuff said.
Rotting Christ however... DROOOOOOOL finally got to see my all time favourite band, front and center mosh went off.
Then got to meet the band afterwards (had after party passes for all the nights) Coolest bunch of guys I've ever met from a big band :D
Sonata Arctica and Ensiferum
Ensiferum were fantastic, really got the crowd going off, saw a few styrofoam swords in the pit too haha.
Sonata played really well, but for a metal band it was a very different experience, they talked about alot of emotional/close to the heart stuff like friendship and staying strong in times of stress.
Still they rocked so it was all good!
