\r\nIt’s a Hardcore-Punk afternoon here in Athens and all the good kids are outside the Sfentona Club. Today we are about to see two Greek hardcore-punk bands sharing the stage with two top hardcore-punk names from the U.S.A. Terror from Los Angeles and Madball from New York City!!

Greek metalheads had been waiting to see BOLT THROWER live for a very long time. In fact even though they’re a 24year old band that was the first time they played live in Greece. On Monday the week before the show the promoters had sent word to all media that the Athens show was heading for a SOLD OUT fast and so when I got to Gagarin it was no surprise that there were no tickets left. As I found out the show was SOLD OUT two days before. On the contrary the show in Thessaloniki didn’t even make its expenses. \r\n

\r\nEpica is a band with which, honestly, I can’t be considered a \r\nreal fan since I have thoroughly heard their first album “The Phantom\r\nAgony”. The only reason I make such an introduction is to make it \r\nclear that the following report is objective, according the band’s \r\nappearance on Fuzz in 29th of May and I haven’t been influenced by any \r\nhuge and timely love for their music. Where am I getting at?\r\n

\r\nIt was shortly after 18.30 when the doors opened and people started to flood GAGARIN205. Soon I met with Metalzone.gr’s photographer Jim Hatzimoisis and we got inside. Nearly 300 to 400 people were already in the venue and so the atmosphere was quite refreshing. At about 19.00 DAYLIGHT MISERY hit the stage.                                     \r\n

Arriving just in time at around 19:40 I’ve found Secret Sphere climbing on the stage to begin this big Power Metal party that took place at the new Fuzz Club.
Without further unnecessary words, here’s the experience:

In a (sadly) non-crowded setting, commenced the dark Norse march on the Gagarin stage.

\r\nWhat can you say about Wacken Open Air? It’s the world’s biggest Metal festival, with the best organization and attracting over 75.000 metalheads yearly. So, like the good metal maniac that I am, I decided to go to the 20th anniversary of the biggest Metal celebration.\r\n

\r\nDay 1 – 30/7\r\n

August 14, 2009

\r\nIt was 9 am when I got off the Attica train station and gone rushing to 205 number of Liosion avenue in order to report for Over The Rainbow’s concert in Athens. At first, without wearing my glasses, I didn’t see the hundreds of people who were waiting patiently outside the venue in order to enter a concert that two hours later would be characterised as "an unforgettable experience" by many of the people who attended the concert at Monday night. But what was the surprise to all of these facts?\r\n

\r\nAs soon as I got to Sin City in the center of Athens to watch Evergrey I heard the news, Greek support band’s appearances had been cancelled. I heard no official explanation for that but judging by the backline I saw on stage for Evergrey’s show I am pretty sure it had to do with that. You see the stage is small and the backline of the Swedes massive! At least for a stage this small.\r\n
