January released album „Shock“ in luggage enthusiastic Icebreaker their fans at Z7 in Pratteln once again. They were accompanied by the Industrial rockers Maerzfeld, which were designed as a special guest the preliminary program. Live are Icebreakeralways a pleasure, full of brute force and a good amount of self-irony simply a class of its own. Big and Ehrlich. It is always very large cinema which offer us Alexx and his team on stage and each icebreaker Concert is simply a unique live experience.
Since good thing known to those who wait, made the band 2014 rar on the stages, to devote himself entirely to music production. Have you no longer have to say about the past of the Munich band. 11 Years they have worked piece by piece up, denied countless tours, Stars like Alice Cooper and Scorpions be supported and always played in their own league. Icebreaker gigs are known for a big rock show and idiosyncratic Entertainment. In a time, in which society can no longer shock right, because everything was already there and always the same crap is flushed through the media, is it too good Knowledge, that there are still artists, reflecting the world with a critical eye and a private head.
Icebreakers live in Pratteln - Switzerland 2015 Part 1
Of „freezing“ was on Friday, the 6. be March at virtually sold out Z7 in Pratteln no talk! could inflame The amount Maerz field, the some as the most successful Rammstein cover band „Stahlzeit“ should know. The band's name is derived from the March Field, chosen from Merowingern served as Heeresversammlungsort. The name symbolizes a field, which must be processed and maintained every year in March, which sees the band as a metaphor for life, in which can only be reached through effort and work its goals. The ambiguity of the name in reference to the March Field under the Nazis was deliberately chosen, to protest the most immediate association of German history with the Third Reich.
In the first song the band and the audience was still very subdued and both were not quite off out, while singer Helfried Tearing Weber from the beginning with a lot of energy the audience always animated to join. The band made the audience really (H)ice cream(s) and came u.a. with her new single „It breaks“ Hence, in the autumn on the new album „Naked“ will be found. Who could, was the single at the merchandise booth take free of charge, which after the convincing performance by the band frequent use was made. After „It breaks“ it went from really, At „Hunt“ came the band out of himself and brought the stage really tremble. Finally presented Maerz field is a second new piece from the forthcoming album, before saying goodbye to the stage.

During the break between March field and icebreaker the stage was rebuilt and what you got to see there, indicated a great one on a great show. A little later, entered captain Alexx energetic stage and the audience was no longer tenable. As on the album proved „Full steam ahead“ an excellent opener, full steam ahead on all cylinders and the hitherto most elaborate stage production icebreaker underlined many small details the appearance of the band, the truly became a spectacle of the particular kind and so it went with lots of power and panache further. The guitarist Noel Pix and Jürgen Plangger worked their instruments with my whole body and it was fun to watch the whole band at her appearance. The masses were raging and as good as any sang with. A madness mood flooded the Z7, which was further enhanced by a magnificent light show.
Over the next two hours icebreaker as always gave everything, of course with the typical witty banter between songs. Even with the new songs many fans were very textsicher and for others there was at „Between us“ an LED text tickertape on stage, where everyone could sing along in Karaoke Style. Between Heavy Metal, Elektro, New German Wave and great melodies fire icebreaker a climax after another from. Well-tried meets newly set to music, presented in a rousing stage show. Close and real, hard and soft, live and loud, a great through and through a magnificent concert band! They played an excellent mix of old hits and new crackers. „Black widow“ resounded with beautiful new sounds, „Forget-Me-Not“ time was not the song for the addition and the new songs as „Between us“, that very successful „1000 Grain“ and „Either way“ or „Still to Save“ was told the audience, which also highlights the new album were covered.

Before the last song Alexx took even a hunting horn on stage and tried at one point, but only strange sounds came out and the band released him quickly and agreed the final song „This Is Deutsch“ an. A more appropriate song, with explosive humor and magnificent stage liner. When Refrain CO² was blown out of the tank into the air and formed so huge fog columns. Off to a great degree, but who knows icebreaker concerts, the white, more to come. With thunderous applause and insatiable calls for more, it all kicked off with the additions. Only rang „Ice age“, then came „Crazy“ and the masses raged. With „bitch“ the highlight was reached, really everyone sang with, so that disappeared from the stage Alexx – emerge around minutes later among the audience, to micromanage the fans to go further, which slanted slightly to refrain bellowed into the microphone. A last song finally came with „Without you“, before the icebreakers finally adopted by the stage.
The icy guys around the veteran Warhorses Alexander „Alexx“ Wesselsky and Jochen „Noel Pix“ Seibert gave an overwhelming performance and great stage show brought the Z7 definitely for cooking. The entertainer qualities of frontman Alexx, coupled with the great songs and the musicianship of the band have not revealed any desired, except perhaps that the concert will be repeated immediately. Alexx is through and through a stage hog and he made that night clearly several times, that icebreaker often still want to play at Z7, without these unspeakable Baumarkt „OBI“, threatens to displace the Z7. with the words „Thank you Pratteln, you were horny“ thanked the band for the great (H)cold evening and threw a few more plush polar bears in the audience. A truly wonderful, yes grandiose concert with a bombastic show, which will be hard to beat!
Icebreakers live in Pratteln - Switzerland 2015 Part 4
In mid-December prevail already slow the temperatures, where you a „Icebreaker“ needed and so was the „Icebreaker“ gone from the Far Bavaria the Basel Z7 anchor, because the men were just to big anniversary tour. Ten years ago, it is now, that Alexander „Alexx“ Wesselsky and Jochen „Noel Pix“ Seibert of „Megaherz“ separated and „Icebreaker“ called into life. „Megaherz“ there are still, but while the former combatants with their album „Götterdämmerung“ with a respectable place 19 had to make do, could „Icebreaker“ with their almost simultaneously released fifth studio disc „Hell has to wait“ secure the third chart position. On this Friday evening, the 13. December, had a lot of fans found their way to the Z7, to coincide with the band and support „A Life Divided“ let rise birthday party and both bands blew the well-stocked Z7 really neat a.
Supposedly stood for nearly two hours before the concert to hardcore fans in Pratteln near freezing temperatures below freezing, the frozen legs in the abdomen, what triggers me only bemitleidendes head shaking, since this is not a teen band and when it chooses himself or herself as, to be there early, one should not complain even about the cold then, but let the icebreaker exercise of his office. So it came, that, at the special guests the Z7 was well stocked. The Munich „A Life Divided“ seasoned with a catchy rock, which they embellished to many parts with electronic elements. understood Jürgen Plangger and his bandmates it, concert goers, waiting impatiently for the headliner, to cast a spell and could certainly this evening to gain some new fans.
„A Life Divided“ bewiesem directly after a long intro with „The Lost“ from this year's album „The Great Escaape“ to be in high spirits. Thus, it was also „It Ain’t No Good“ vigorously clapped and with „words“ followed by a crisp shouter from the 2011 long-player „Passenger“, before the melodic „Feel“ served poppige set pieces in rock garb. „Hey You“ sent under light thunderstorms a guitar hurricane besides drum tornado over the stage, before selbige for VNV NATION Cover „Perpetual“ was bathed in blue light. „A Life Divided“ let it rip grim-metallic and one had to listen carefully, to recognize the origin of song, the guys have done their thing truly not bad. After all, there is also this formation for ten years and colleague Plangger, Since the 2006 also „Icebreaker“ the guitar plucks, knew quite, as his audience to „The Last Dance“ could move.
Icebreaker, Amok, live im Z 7 Pratteln, at the 13.12.13
There was NDH standards for the dance floor, to finally with the varied „Heart On Fire“ query the text security of audience. Here cavorting obviously a lot of repeat offenders and so was not surprised, that there was to hear after a good half hour abundantly deserved applause. In my opinion, the sound of the band is absolutely top class, but the voice of Jürgen Plangger is not my case. Not that would be this bad, not at all, me personally it is just a little too bright, so they the sound of the band rather disturbs my view, as supplemented. But fortunately the tastes are different. „A Life Divided“ is a great live band, since there is nothing to complain about, my case, however, it is not, but the Jürgen one should after a short breather yes again to see and get to hear. „A Life Divided“ increased from the first minute to go, as if they were the headliner and the final applause was worthy definitely one Headliners.
Accompanied by 70s disco we went into the break, before the title melody of the A-Team left to increase the suspense again. The two positioned on the two stage edges fists in oversize glowed in a deep red and a computer voice welcomed the large audience. Finally, the main actors were on the stage and the men gave a two-hour and downs on old and new songs, that it crashed just as. So went the party mit „No Pity“ going on and we sat in the following set of highlights of the last decade, and it was therefore with „Welcome to Nothing“, „Adrenalin“ and „antibody“ more. Prior to the anthemic „Eyes below zero“ the stage was soaked in red light and since the first time more recent fare was offered. Could subsequently „Amok“ again set an optical highlight through his choreography with the almost veteran barrels and also „Ice age“, in which then still the Polar equipment was used, seemed familiar. The subsequent to „Unfortunately“ rocks always more, was at least as clapped enthusiastically at „Prototype“. The enthusiasm was noted each on the stage and the audience and band escalated from song to song.
Icebreakers Jubiläumstour - Crazy (Live 2013)
The set list was compared to the „Hell has to wait“ Tour um- been built and expanded peppered with eloquent Anmoderationen by Alexx, which now had his audience completely in hand, went there with further „Angel“. The great, self-titled band anthem, the 2013er in one version of the „10 Years icebreaker“ Single can be found and attacked when Alexx now to captain's hat and ice picks, initiated following the next Classics section a: This was supplemented inter alia by „Black widow“, to which a little hard liquor was served. Next we went with „Forget-Me-Not“, „Heart Thief“ and „This Is Deutsch“ ended brilliantly as German drying Musikantenstadl with columns of smoke the regular part of the show, after only a brief interruption in „Holy“ but found his deserved sequel. „Crazy“ ended with thunderous applause and was at this point, of course, only to be topped by „bitch“. But the masters had not splash out and came again after another break with „A life immortal“ back. But then was definitively concluded, Although a, two pieces such as „Can it Love his sin“ would have gone to my liking yet. But then stop again next time.
Where icebreaker is on it, there are also icebreaker: After Rammstein and Oomph! increasingly short of ideas and the unholy Graf has to change to Schlager specialist finally completed, Icebreakers are suddenly at the top of „New German Hardness“. With the current album „Hell has to wait“ musical content and the wheel was not reinvented or put into question, Rather, one has the good entertainment value in mind. The icebreaker made his undeterred and cheered their way through now almost 10 Years of band history, and you had no way „Crazy“ be, to retain good memories of this trip. Pratteln was there last Saturday and part of the current cruise the NDH and its flagship „Höllentour“ and gave the fans a thoroughly great evening.
The Hamburg „Lord of the Lost“ opened the evening. Unfortunately, we have a bit of time, so that we have not noticed that much of the Dark rockers. But what we could see, however, was for a very solid show with audiences near and lots of bare skin. „Lord of the Lost“ understood it well overall, oneself (and their bodies) to stage. Musically convinced also „Break Your Heart“ and the Song „Your victories“. According to Chris Harms is one of these to some Lord of the Lost / Icebreaker Cokompositionen, which will be available to hear gradually. Although the voice of his lordship in German sounded a little strange, but on the melody and arrangement of the song, the influence of the scene sizes was significantly.
Icebreaker - Crazy (Live, Höllentour 2012)
After a short break, peppered with '80s classics, remarked man dann schon, that it is soon to be seriously. The theme song of the A-Team then heralded the start of the show of icebreaker. Gradually, the band members took the stage and agreed „Exzess Express“, of the new board, a. Immediately, singer Alex Wesselsky with his men the rock foundation for the next two hours and presented itself just as ironically as Charismatic. to „Welcome to Nothing“ from 2004's debut album, the mood should be equal increase yet. Directly to the Eisbrecherisch bored rich sound through and through and read the mood level will race in the hall, before it under a bang, long paper tapes and .ajax from the ceiling rained.
After opening with this impulsive „Fear“ properly drained and refilled steam, then before you know it in the „Abyss“ crashed. With the classics „Fear“ they met, of course, directly hearing the audience, before then but more focused on the new album. So come songs like „Abyss“ and „Crazy“ clear melodic therefore as many older stuff. Now retired captain Alex interim report and joked around with the audience, thereby the born entertainer never seem the best quotes and cynical allusions to go.
Surprisingly little one gets on the current tour, the latest hit album „Hell has to wait“ to listen. Although rang „Exzess Express“ the entry with new material and famous Rammstein style a, but already then kidnapped the ironic „Welcome to Nothing“ and the haunting „Fear“ in ancient times. Overall, icebreakers, despite growing success surprisingly little changed. All musicians were seen in the best of moods and presented themselves extremely homogeneous. No trace of airs and other implications of the Sony deals. Alex asked the audience, whether Jim Bean drinkers in the hall had, which was also confirmed by a loud fan, so this was then geweisen Alex deal, that decent whiskey comes from Tennessee and if the values Mr. Jim Bean drinkers know the, he would probably not get so small… Having said that it was open at the time a bottle of good old Uncle Jack, which Alex personal staff „Dodo“, in fulfillment of its obligations, the singer handed. Accordingly, the rocker celebrated not only the new single „Crazy“, but also at wahrten cherished traditions such as the circling whiskey bottle „Unfortunately“, but (As expected,) not found its way back to the stage.
Was amazingly fluent „Amok“ In addition to- and dismantling of four tonnes integrated into Hauptsetliste. Equipped with Neondrumsticks the musicians beat synchronously in dark spotlight on their documents a, before the next hit block both the stage and the crowd was dressed in the brightest of colors. A prime example of how capable lighting technician a whole Concert can enhance. The same applies to the excellent sound, both rock- and in the acoustical block. Before then Alex and Jürgen on their stools „Tears do not lie“ and a dynamic interpretation of „In the Switzerland“ chanted by Vico Torriani. As a reward, there was Jürgen on the acoustic guitar even a peck on the lips, before it with „Angel“ continued. Here, the front man proved his qualities as a marksman as he with imaginary Weapons shot gesturing angel from heaven.
Icebreaker live in Switzerland 3.3.12
Then out of the best ingredients were all present, the „Prototype“ built, according to „Forget-Me-Not“ herald a break, But that should not take long, order with „Black widow“ and „Holy“ the audience right back neatly einzuheizen. Even Bavarian costume fans should get their money, after a minute Long Jodel insert stylish to traditional Schuhplattler contortions, was the ever-popular „This Is Deutsch“ intoned. What was immediately demonstrated again, that they have nothing of their ironic and cynical style Lost have.
Quickly stood to one „Can it Love his sin“ and „Without you“ back on stage and took again out the remaining reserves. But followed the Megadeth classic „bitch“, which should make the hall again to completely cook. „But coming from here, or?!“ screamed the front man at the audience while he swung the Swiss flag. With audience singing, a deposit of Clawfinger (Nigger) and guitar solos, the „bitch“ properly celebrated and left the band to thunderous cheers the stage. That was pure energy. „Wow! What a concert conclusion.“ went through my head. But the guys the stage should one last time for this evening entered for the title song of the new album „Hell has to wait“ rauszuhauen.
Icebreakers convinced all along the line by musical hardness, catchy melodies and a surprising amount of variety. Boredom came on second to none. Captain Alex had the helm all night under control, the bottle at hand, the award of stock. His team was inferior to him in body size, although significantly, However, technically beyond reproach. The evening finally ended at Bonny Tylor „It’s a heartache“, which rang out suddenly after the last song on the hall speaker. The band said goodbye to long and broad audiences, bowed several times and threw roses and plush polar bears in the sweaty mass. A spassige idea for a gloomy band.
Friends, This was a concert, which will remain in the best memories. Icebreakers are definitely one of the best live bands currently in the German sector and understand it, to merge catchiness with powerful hardness. Even the humor has taken fully my taste, and the whole show was just plain and simple great! Locker could hear the men another hour, because some 2 Hours were extremely entertaining and successful, so certainly no reasons were to complain about. Icebreakers are a great live band, have always something the straight face and I can only every friend good Music recommend the Men. If the guys should therefore play with you in the near, necessarily buy tickets, totally worth it!
