The first band to step on the stage is THE MODERN AGE OF SLAVERY, an Italian core/death metal band. Their performance is really good; I really like their synchronized movements on the stage. A negative vote goes to the German audience, who remain cold and do not want to get involved; I have to say that the singer tries to do everything to engage the audience, who, except for a dozen people, refuse to approach the stage. After the concert the Italian band is disappointed by the reticent attitude of the public. Same goes for the next band, English technical/progressive death metal band AGELESS OBLIVION.
The concert begins with the wonderful “Bergtrollets Hevn”. As usual, GORGOROTH goes over their entire history from the beginnings, except the album Ad majorem, composed by Gaahl and King ov Hell; most of the songs are from under the Sign of Hell. Despite my immense respect for Hoest, I have to say that he does not equal Pest on the clean vocals in “Profetens åpenbaring”. I note with some amazement that when Infernus plays the slow riff of “Forces of Satan Storms" his hands are shaking clearly, as if he were a beginner; at least it gives me a strong feeling of uncertainty. I also get a kick from Infernus because of an idiot behind me that bothers him. The concert of GORGOROTH lasts less than fifty minutes, little for the headliner band, considering that VITAL REMAINS played longer.
I do not know why, but I have the feeling of being a little disappointed. Fortunately, I recoup myself with the metal disco of Helvete until five in the morning!
