Wed 20 Apr – Accept, Sabaton, Warmachine, Ash Lee Blade

well, it was just FUCKING AWESOME, you know
I got there late, I had a headache and was starving, I had no cash to buy some food or a drink, but those 60 bucks I payed at the door were totally worth it!

Club is easy to get to and to find, but I got there late and Ash Lee Blade were already on the stage. The moment I stepped into the club I realized how cool its gonna be, atmosphere of metal and brotherhood, or equality, whatever. Those guys were so loud and kinda oldsckool and that was just great. My headache disappeared right away!

Next were Sabaton, whom fans expected almost as much as Accept, but anyway. Their songs are all about wars and victories and stuff like that, they were so cool. And Joakim Brodén was so energetic, cheering the crowd and so sincere, though joked about his cock for a few times. Anyway, these two bands are definitely worth adding to your library.
Nice thing to hear was Final Countdown in between Ash Lee Blade's and Sabaton's performances, everyone was singing and it felt so warm and friendly there.

Finally, headliners stepped onto the stage. To tell the truth, that was almost the awesomest thing Ive ever seen or felt. I was just amazing and thrilling, when Wolf Hoffmann and Peter Baltes played together, I just could not take pictures of it, you had to be there, if not. well, you're a loser and have to die. It was THAT cool.

Also I got a mediator for Peter Baltes! hell yeah!
Atmosphere was very nice, people hugging each other, felt like a big heavy metal family, just as it had to be


nice thing I met Wolf Hoffmann in person, thanked him and told he has some fans in good old Ukraine too, you know, their music almost raised me instead of my teachers and crap.

And one more nice thing - I met that guy, - Sergey there, we were born a few hundred miles and a few decades away from each other, but met in Toronto, kinda nice guy with great music taste. Sergey, if you are reading this, thanks for a ride and Michael Angel is great!

I shot some videos and took few hundred of pictures, but I have a project due tomorrow, so Ill post some links in comments tomorrow, so you can, you know, take a look

    Thanks! This was aweome stuff, too bad you missed the two openers - they put on a good show. Both Warmachine and Ash Lee were damn good, but of course nothing compares to Sabaton. They damn near stole the show - can't wait to see them headline here someday. Not to take credit away from Accept of course, who rocked for 2 hours straight and never had a weak moment.

    actually Ash Lee Blade were just starting when I came in, and I really enjoyed their songs, but Warmachine is something Ill listen here, on sadly and ignominiously I knew nothing about Sabaton, though, but this weekend is dedicated to those new bands I heard there, yep! Accept were definitely great, I never thought Ill see them in person, all my friends are now jealous)

    also, a totally insignificant nitpick - a lot of the songs played by Sabaton weren't actually about victories but rather famous and tragic defeats (e.g. Gallipoli, 40 to 1, Uprising are all defeats). Not that they don't make them any less epic. BTW, word is they're supposed to be back in September, opening again for Evergrey. I wonder when they'll headline. PS - I'm in most of your photos :) (I'm the guy with long hair wearing aviator shades, in the middle and 2-3 rows back from the stage PPS - а мир действительно мал )
