The on Wednesday opened in Bern Natural History Museum exhibition „Rock Fossils – And, it's love!“ airs a secret affair paleontology: The passion for hard rock Music. no, at the exhibition not the fossilized remains of departed rock sizes are issued, but fossils, all of which are the names of important rock- wear and metal bands. Last Wednesday, a previously unknown sea urchin species was the name „Paracidaris ELUVEITIE“ baptized and with an acoustic-Concert honored the Swiss folk metallers.
As a child visiting the Natural History Museum usually accompanied by classmates and teacher, then one usually makes a long break until later, if you yourself children has, is again presenting itself at the Museum. Between, in the period between being a child and a parent, is a museum rather rare. How to attract non-children and non-parents to the Natural History Museum? In which one appeals to this target group in a slightly different way, as a museum would otherwise do. There are scientists, the new, provide previously unknown species name, which are related to the location or shape. And there are scientists, dedicated a new way their favorite rock star. Apparently, there are just a lot in paleontology scientists, who not only love fossils, but indulge with the same passion of rock music - the hard rock music. The special „Rock Fossils – And, it is Love“ presents 36 Dinosaurs and other fossils, which bear the names of bands or singers from the rock scene. Thus, AC / DC, Lemmy of Motörhead, Ramones, Beatles, Taken Rolling Stones and the Sex Pistols their place in the history of the earth.
The exhibition was first at the geological museum faxes in, shown Denmark. They caused an international stir, especially in the Metal-Scene. The Natural History Museum of Bern (NMBE) has the honor, the first building to present the exhibition outside Scandinavia. Meanwhile, the exhibition has received prominent new: The recently discovered fossil ancestor of hippos, It was named after Mick Jagger is at full lips, will be on display for the first time with a reconstruction and skeletal remains. A substantial expansion experienced the exhibition but by the Natural History Museum of Bern itself: The paleontologists of NMBE devote a previously unknown sea urchin type of band Eluveitie. At „Paracidaris Eluveitie“ is it a 160 Million years old, recently in the Swiss Jura (Auenstein, AG) discovered echinoderms, reminiscent of the ornamentation of its housing to the ornament Celtic items. When the band name Eluveitie it is indeed known to the Etruscan form of the Celtic word Helvetios (the Helvetii).
The exhibition was stylish ushered in the skeleton hall of the museum with an acoustic concert by Eluveitie, which on this occasion their „own“ Have received Fossilart, which was given to them in the form of a model of the fossil. The combination of museum and Metal concert has extremely irritated me in advance. But that works with acoustic gig? Does pagan metal without metal? no, does not it! Too bad you had a really great live band that night when fail to see. Eluveitie were unfortunately too little brave the experiment. Only the electric guitar to replace Acoustik-guitars was definitely too little creative. Went the whole dynamic of their songs Lost, what remained was the sound images always sounded the same. Nix with wild hair shaking and heavy guitars! For the museum gig the eight-member troupe Winterthur has an acoustic set rehearsed and presented sitting in a semicircle. the song „The Call Of The Mountains“ has singer and Drehleiher-player Anna Murphy sung in German Bern, which has been specially rehearsed for the evening and things even more out crack. Sometimes songs work only, if they are carried by contrasts like Eluveitie – Unfortunately these contrasts have been missing.
NMBE presented: Paleontologist Bernhard Hostettler & the Eluveitie urchins
In addition 160 Million year old sea urchin, will henceforth bear the name of the successful folk metallers, provides the museum with the original „Metal Heart“, the same name as a cover on Accepts 1985 he has been immortalized album, still a very special exhibit for Metal fans.

A song about the long-sought goal at the end of the epic journey of the Celts, which evolved into the Helvetii – a song about our mystical, majestic and incomparable Alps.

ELUVEITIE - The Call Of The Mountains (OFFICIAL MULTILINGUAL TRACK)
On Saturday, the 31. August, made the Open Air Boom its name, because there were Metal Of ELUVEITIE and Grave Digger. the Tree Openair ist ein sehr junges Festival im Oberbaselbiet, genauer Diegten, which is probably due to its freshness in the events market the spoiled Swiss audience simply too little known, the Advertising alone is not attracted the necessary attention and were simply announced this weekend to many other events. So sucked diese zwei grossen Names alleine nicht viele allzu Metalheads an, because, unfortunately, were estimated this evening might 150 to 200 People present, um die zwei grossartigen Bands abzufeiern. But this was for the audience no reason to mope and the concerts were all top notch!
I personally was this familiar framework more than just pretty, I, the large Concert-Open-air anyway sooo not like it, for the organizers, the sparse audience but rather be a disaster have been. damage, because the boom Open Air was really well organized, the visitors lacked neither food and drink, nor to the sanitary facilities and where others Festivals with expensive cashless systems this year so had their problems, showed the little open air the big operators, that can be used with a simple card trick, one which for 50 Franken could buy, to pay the rest of the evening without cash. The location was absolutely brilliant and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Since it is very unfortunate, that the organizers were not blessed with more viewers, because to be based on the existing visitor two days have hardly paid and the implementation of a further boom Open Air is thus probably more than just in the stars…
The evening opened to 19:30 Clock first in Switzerland, The Frankfurt Quietschboys, which sealed her skirt and played to the point with Hessian dialect texts to international hits such as „Nothing Else Matters“ Of METALLICA (I'll be fat), „Angie“ The Rolling Stones (Hähnche), „Have a nice day“ Bon Jovi (I sauf schee me) or „Thunderstruck“ by AC / DC (Günther Strack) the audience einheizte properly. The guys did their job quite well, although I personally such cover versions and Comedy- oder Fun-Metal à la J.B.O. less satisfied. The light rain started, who stopped again fortunately after a short time, then let us change under the tent and indulge culinary offering. a ca. 21:30 Clock then put the Swiss metal band Celtic ELUVEITIE Go and able as usual to draw the same from the beginning the audience under her spell. Since most of the existing visitors were there for exactly this band, This concert was an absolute home game and the band was clearly motivated. A clean Concert, wherein the spark immediately jumped on the audience and for the next almost 2 Hours really brought the fire to blaze. as always offered ELUVEITIE an absolutely brilliant show!
a ca. 23:30 PM it was eerily bleak walked on stage as the Reaper stage. With a bagpipe intro voted us the Grim Reaper on the appearance of a Grave Digger. The masked keyboardist Hans-Peter Cat Castle walked here slowly across the stage and prepared the audience with the intro to the title track of their latest album „Clash of the Gods“ before. What came next, really was more than impressive, if one keeps in mind, that Gravedigger for over 30 Years are active and all the dominions no 20 are more. From the outset, the gravedigger rolled over with frontman Chris Boltendahl the remaining audience, Unfortunately, some were already gone back after the performance of Eluveitie. Gravedigger knüppelte with crystal clear sound and a lot of pressure by their numerous classics. On the highly precise rhythm backbone of bassist Jens Becker and Stefan Arnold guitarist Axel Ritt could romp virtuoso. It was amazing, as squeaky clean Axel was able to play the most demanding passages and thereby kept quiet for a minute, but feared and raged like a dervish. Not to mention Chris Boltendahl, whose raspy voice sounded fresher than ever and looked in top shape physically. It was an all around great show with great entertainment. The gentlemen have played songs across their albums, and finally there were three encores. What the fans got to see this evening, was phenomenal. Frontman and founding member Chris Boltendahl and his men have the stage par excellence rocked and it would be to treat the artists and the organizers, if the audience would have been more plentiful…
Grave Digger - Intro + Clash of the Gods, Masters of Rock 2013
„Is that still punk rock, If your favorite song is on the charts?“, Ask The doctors in one of her latest songs and the answer is the same supplied with one: „I do not think!“ I am also of this opinion, But Die Toten Hosen been able yet to convince. Quite possible, that The doctors had in mind when densities of these lines to the fans of the band from Dusseldorf. And the question is entitled! As successful as the band from Dusseldorf is currently in German-speaking only the hit-count of Unholy. Punk leaned immemorial times against the social consensus on, but this German beer rock bliss, which celebrate the Pants on the straps, is rather a kind of antithesis to punk. I have the pants in the years 1996 and 2002 enjoyed on the straps and maybe it's because, that the pants and I have grown old, as Campino sings again? „I am not yet sixty, and I'm not close.“ Well, because of close and, at Campino it takes another nine years… with me luckily a lot more
„No Future – that was yesterday, A lot has happened since the“, to quote again the input mentioned song and „which has as the coolness factor of a garden tractor“ fits like ass back on bucket. But we are only the second day of the 30. Gurtenfestival, that with more than 20’000 Visitors was sold out. Again, a small parallel to the Toten Hosen, which last year you 30 year consist celebrations could. Back to Festival, the day opened Hoffmaestro from Sweden with a full load of ska. Tamed Indiepop presented on the tent stage the countrymen of Friska Viljor and similarly changeable as the concert program was the weather, which did not, whether it should choose between sweltering desert heat and light rain.
Die Toten Hosen - Here comes Alex ( Gurtenfestival 2013 )
Those who wanted to escape the impending rain, twisted under the tent of the tent stage, where the Swiss Celtic Metal-Band ELUVEITIE significantly positively by the previous acts on the straps abhebte with their sound. Celtic sounds, Bagpipes and urhelvetische iconography attracted diehard metalheads, but the average visitor seemed to confuse rather. The latter therefore sat down but rather to the brave Lunik on the forest stage from. Sophie Hunger strikes meanwhile bravely on the main stage and is clearly motivated. A clean Concert, but the spark just will not really skip to the audience. Partly audience sway to the big band rhythms with, But hunger can not move more with greatest effort, because all waiting for Die Toten Hosen.
then, Finally, punctual as hip to 21:45 Clock, hoist the pants the flag on the main stage. Frontman Campino leaves nothing burning and provides equal you start a big show from. Already the second song he can from his „Security“ contribute to the fans. The hungry crowd bawls inspired hits like „Ballast of the Republic“, „Bonnie & Clyde“ and „Everything from Love“ With. There is a relaxed atmosphere and the lead singer Campino tells us of a world, which are mainly Soccer, Barley juice, Party and passive sport seems to be turning. Campino, which lately quite like as a composer something even more striking Zusammengehörigkeits anthems („On days like these“, „Arise, if you On the bottom are“) excels, is a born entertainer.
Paradise - Pasci & Die Toten Hosen, Gurtenfestival 2013 HQ
The singer noted, that he has in years 1996 and 2002 was on the straps and he can not remember well by its own account. He also remembered the April 2012 occasion the band on „Magical-Mystery-Tour“ pants a private concert on a Bernese attic, belongs to a private apartment, played and according Campino one of the best parties celebrated ever. I even remembered, As „The Golden Lemon“ gave a concert in the riding hall and Campino, Kuddel and Wölli were as friends on tour. That evening it was possible, to tip a few beers with the boys, to talk and to provide some nonsense. Schön wars, but it's been forever, hardly true and therefore back to the concert. „Paradise“ broke the band suddenly, because a (Ambush) in the audience held up a banner with „Campino, I can better“. Campino asked Pasci from Aargau with the words „Here the stage is the loser“ on the boards mean the world and the Aargauer's doing not bad and used the once big stage, to play to the gallery and the 15 Enjoying Minutes of Fame.
Next we went and latest at „All for Love“ the people were to jumping in the arms and Pyros are fired, which offset the fierce Broncos in a frenzy. Soon it was no longer clear, what welding, what were spilled beer and what tears of joy. The big headliner on Friday night brought the text safe Bern to the brink of the circulatory collapse and offered a huge and energetic concert. But somehow it was many years ago on the Mount Gurten better and that made not only partially finely dressed out over 20’000 People from. no, somehow the straps charm has given the absolute commercial, Friendships to see and be seen, and anyway somehow all look the same and even this evening. They are clean, healthy, gutriechend, without hair, efficient and unobtrusive. How boring and kinda disgusting. Where are all the Freaks remained? Where are the goths and punks? All the „Spinner“ you can count on one hand. Nothing more going, everywhere neat people, all look, as if they are middle 30. Even if they 20 are, see it like this. If they Crazy are, carry beards and hats and trousers Shirt.
but what the heck, also a parallel to the tape – and yet somehow makes it so fun. Nearly two hours rocked the band and the humor regular highlight of this year's anniversary edition proved once again as an ideal candidate for a festival in these latitudes. The usual enthusiasm and interaction with the audience was missing just as the crowd surfing trip to the mixing tower campinos – including Bengali torch on the roof – and back. The belt is located in the Toten Hosen concert in Sing-along-to-noise, „Here comes Alex“, „Make a wish“, the doctors-Cover „Cry for love“, „Days like these“ and as the first addition „eisgekühlten Bommer Lunder“. The rest give the weary rebels the belts with the counting rhyme „ten small“ and adoption of official anthem „Goodbye“. A lot of spectacle, but what the dead has to offer with punk pants no longer care much, is probably more likely to become Schunkel Punk. Ja Macht nix, Heino covert meanwhile tion of song „The doctors“, will fit it all, otherwise it is suitable „made“… Are you still punk rock?

Is that still punk rock? I do not think! - Die Toten Hosen on Gurtenfestival
The first issue sank into the mud Jonschwil, the second Basel organizers broke Free and Virgin the neck. The Sonisphere Festival has been available under a bad sign. Last Wednesday, the third attempt succeeded in new surroundings and with new operator. 32’000 Metalheads - more than expected - flocked to the Parc Rives Du Lac in Yverdon-Les-Bains on Lake Neuchâtel with headliners Motorhead, Slayer and METALLICA. The restart was successful, is far from perfect. The sound was, if he come – At Mastodon did not run as the PA half the time and fell always again – but surprisingly well. The Golden Circle was designed to be big and we had once again, Jonschwil sends his regards, Uber 30 pending minutes for drinks. Nevertheless, my impression was that this was the best so far Sonisphere Festival, the sunny weather and the stunning location made it so offset some.
Around 32’000 Have music fans METALLICA on the former Expo.02 Gelände in Yverdon-les-Bains, which 28 itself’000 Population has, curly, where on Wednesday was the third edition of the Sonisphere festival on the stage. This was the first time, that a festival was organized in this magnitude in this city. The festival began at 15 Clock with blue skies, the atmosphere was ok and the decibel high, so hoch, that the concerts to the 13 km away Cheyres (FR) were heard. Around 1,200 workers were involved in the success of the festival, installation took about a week and it had some 50 Takeaways, 5.5 km barriers and 300 Mobile Toilets. Funnily enough, was placed no bar in the Golden Circle area, which I did not really care but, because I always do not belong to the Weichspülmetalern with too much coal in the bag, but organizationally it certainly could be better solved, but so halt had to get drinks for the infantry Rich People, what the wait times are not just reduced.
Gojira Live @ Sonisphere Switzerland Yverdon - The Wild Child
With headliners Metallica, Motörhead and Slayer could indeed concentrated Metal-Power will be presented. ELUVEITIE, Gojira and Mastodon were also of the party, the three had but to bite the bullet and quasi in the sun geschwängerten audience - in the afternoon 30 Degree - their Music make delicious. With Eluveitie was unfortunately completely dead pants, But perhaps what the sound was, presumably in comparison with the rest of the program something fell out of the frame and thus has not met the expectations of visitors and the band already had to play half an hour after door opening. But Gojira had to remind the audience it, that this was ne metal show and invited to pits, but what took place. And so could only Mastodon, they offered, especially their newest album „The Hunter“ error, ensure a great atmosphere. Unfortunately, increased during 45 Minutes without exaggeration 15 times the sound off and it really was the lowest level, I can only ausprechen a big compliment to Mastodon, which it did not let itself be swayed and constantly batting confidently and without the eyelashes might enlarge.
The subsequently occurring living legends, Slayer, indeed had no inconsistencies with the art, But somehow giving the impression, Problems with the musculoskeletal system to have. Similar dynamic as a terracotta army it reeled from their setlist. Perhaps this was also in the audience and Slayer became fascinated by the motionless crowd – or was it simply the age, because Tom looked visually in my eyes as not quite the freshest. Slayer bribed with their uncompromising, flurry and rock-hard sound. This incredible precision but the Slayer was not necessarily expected, for guitarist Jeff Hanneman has still not recovered from his spider bite infection and had to be replaced by Gary Holt. There were a few mosh pits but, Although not directly in front of the stage (Golden Circle Problem), But the foot soldiers but it went off, worked although these pits mostly more like children's birthday.
Slayer - Raining Blood - Angel Of Death - Sonisphere 2012
Motörhead showed turn from their dirty good side and never sprayed boredom. But here lacked the sentiment front of the stage and Lemmy often stood unquestionably, waiting for reactions from the audience, when he announced a song. New, however, was not to be heard by the old masters of the hard tones course. Cult rocker Lemmy Kilmister offered its usual, unfussy, honest rock. At the same time, the Sun withdrew and handed over their place of matching Dusk. The more time passed, and the darker it became, the more sought their place with direct view to the stage. The entire fan base waiting for Metallica and expected a black spectacle. Incidentally, it is not surprising me, Free and Virgin that has gone bankrupt at the Sonisphere Basel, when I think of the Schlangensteherei in Yverdon and how much revenue in Yverdon by waiting Lost went, I can only say: damage, damage, damage.
Extremely punctual and full of playfulness outdid Metallica on, each song technical register was drawn. Californians played the „Black Album“ – their legendary landmark work of 1991 – in full length. But the album just by Song 1 to 12 runterzunudeln, that would be too easy for the Metal-heroes, Metallica turned instead to the order of the songs and started with „The Struggle Within“, the actual final song of the album. The twelve songs of the disc are now considered anthems of rock music. How much, it showed on Sonisphere Festival, agreed as thousands of fans in the singing of frontman James Hetfield and applauded along the beat of drummer Lars Ulrich. And not just in the radio-friendly ballad „Nothing Else Matters“, but virtually every single song. Metallica convinced, up to Kirk Hammett, to each of these screwed up constantly easiest passages.

Pleasing was at Metallica, that musical aberration with Lulu and the unsuccessful collaboration with Lou Reed survived without damage and with the interpretations of the „Black Album“ While nothing new was offered, but the boys signaled with her long, spirited performance, that they are still the old ones are. „Blackened“ let your heart open with big flame-pillars and at every little pyromaniac „One“ convinced with top fat lasers. the „Black Album“ was in my view something langfädig and for me years ago The death of the band, But one gets older and so the sound came total over very well and (my) Fortunately, it does not stick to the songs from this album, but it was commanded inclined fan also older Kost.
Overall it was a horny, relaxing event in a harmonious environment. The Sonisphere in Yverdon was marked by moderation: fewer bands, fewer viewers, less megalomania, fewer crowds at constant musical quality. The band change went smoothly and the sound was of astonishing transparency and came over really fat. Annoying was only the crowd in front of the beer stands and probably for the bands of much too large-scale Golden Circle area for the Rich People, which were too small or too lazy, to move her ass. The main thing, then you go to the merch booth, buys an expensive Shirt and then can hang out the big fan. And that the Golden Circler were too good to show enthusiasm, was actually more than foreseen and hence I have no pity for – except the bands over. Nevertheless, METALLICA, Motorhead, Slayer, Mastodon, Gojira and ELUVEITIE were simply class. Obviously, it needs to get the same Romandie is a great festival. Really great location and probably the best so far Sonisphere…
METALLICA are the headliners of the third edition of the Metal-Festivals Sonisphere, which this year for the third time in the Switzerland is carried out. METALLICA play her „Black Album“ in full length. More certify Acts are: Slayer, Motorhead, Mastadon, Gojira and ELUVEITIE. Sonisphere take place on Wednesday, 30. More 2012 in Yverdon-les-Bain statt.

Friends, booked you on Wednesday, the 30. More 2012, because yesterday was on the Metallica Homepage published subsequently.

Thus, METALLICA The headliner of the third edition of Heavy Metal Festival Sonisphere, which this year in the Switzerland is carried out. The open-air festival grounds at Parc des Rives du Lac provides a unique backdrop for the festival of Metal friends and could become a reason for me but, me to lead this event to heart. The site on the banks of Lake Neuchâtel was during Expo.02 used as an exhibition center and summarizes the 45’000 Visitor. Let's hope, that the organizers of the festival this time manage better than a year 2011 (Dawn of the Joggeli) or 2010 (The Big Desaster)…
The Swiss pagan metal band ELUVEITIE sign up with interesting news:
After several weeks of silence (you will soon learn, which we were engaged) we are happy, to announce the first of the planned in the near future large news. Early September (addition of a new website) „EluTV“ start: Basically a complete documentation about our tour- and recording activities in the form of several episodes, enriched with exclusive backstage footage. Of course, available for free!
„Task of art it is today, Bring chaos into order.“ wrote Theodor W. Adorno in Minima Moralia and the organization and coordination of the Sonisphere festival in Basel was marked by chaos, as well as various bands noticed in announcements and one could speak of luck on the last Friday, that nothing happened. But there were also shows by hammer Hatebreed, Slipknot, ELUVEITIE and Iron Maiden. Bands super, Weather super, Not rest. But the OK Swiss Sonisphere this can, after last year's mudslinging obviously afford… – because it could have been worse. The great bands could so ignore some and most of the metalheads to put a smile on face.
Last Friday, it was time again: Sonisphere set up camp, for the second time and after Maiden voyage in Jonschwil, The festival took place this time in Basel St. Jakob Stadium along with revulsion instead. The weather showed its good side and the inexhaustible number of bands were an overlook something about the organizational shortcomings – but does not forget, because it became clear already with the start to the festival on Friday, to really understand what the Sonisphere: Profit maximization! Unfortunately the game were the times of the Bands, which was changed in advance x times, at the beginning of the day switched back and compresses, which should have provided neither fans nor bands for enthusiasm, personally but not really played me a role.
The Bändeltausch was amateurishly organized and super Bändelchen, because these gibts 1:1 For 120 Francs to buy at King Flyer… 1000 Stuck, the link to it was even printed and not enough, with a ticket you could get as much as you wanted Bändel and thus give pleasure friends and acquaintances. But this should be only the beginning of the organized chaos, because the festival was for weeks under a bad sign, since the event will lack the Football Spectators- had to be moved to the athletic stadium and it was not possible there, to take the seats paid in claim. To all buyers of a seating tickets were given to the inlet Bons for two drinks and a Sausage. But where the hell could redeem the vouchers for the promised free drinks and sausage? 90% the catering stalls wanted nothing at all events of this Bons Knowledge. Also had a strange, that once you had entered the Metal Festival, first a tart stand was to see… Oh well – I knew something hitherto, but might as well be nice, to Hatebreed Coffee reinzuziehen and cakes. After such a Concert needs of ausgepowerte Metalhead well known, a sugar shock…

But we come first to the main festival, the Music! Unfortunately, you could also these, at the beginning of the festival is not really enjoy, Sick Puppies at the Apollo Stage, notabene the main stage of the event, It was a power outage, which left already again cast doubt on the professionalism of the organization. Cataract at the Red Bull Stage one was not let in, as the hall was already full. The Security was left up any students and Teenies, who also had the dubious pleasure, dismiss disappointed fans in front of closed doors, which loosely at more alkholosierten fans could escalate. Was given masses For us announced some sun, so we were lounging us near the Apollo Stage on the lawn, caused the first trouble drown evaporate… and it came in a little enjoyment of Mr Big, which does not really correspond to my Gusto.
That was the first show that you could really enjoy with Dave Wyndorf, his sign of rotation- focal point of drug geschwängerten Monster Magnet. After Dave and his men a highlight of Sonisphere's had already announced: Hatebreed! Just amazing how these guys have understood right from the beginning the audience to captivate. Höllisch loud and with such a rich sound, stand still do not know the guys. With such fat riffs, there is simply no excuse. Honest emotions, impetuous passion, a richer sound and more powerful energy. Prior to the Bohemia stage the audience was almost closed in motion, Jamey Jasta raged over the boards and fueled the perspiring crowd always further and celebrating with the best sound and killer tracks like „Destroy Everything“, „This Is Now“, „Live For This“ or „Doomsayer“ a huge party.
Monster Magnet - Crop Circle (Complete song)
the ELUVEITIE and Slipknot at the same time had to play, was a little ugliness, annoyed so many fans, as well as the marketplace, which completely beyond was established, because who buys flip-flops on a Metal-Festival? On all mine countless festivals in which I have participated, I've never – but never did – Flip flops seen for sale! the 4 dl water here for 5 Franken was sold, fits again into the whole picture of the profit maximization, but not enough so, at the stands were no bottles are sold, while people wandered purely open with Party barrels. I do not know how excited Iron Maiden would, if you would know, that you could just walk in without any obstacle with firearms. I've seen a lot, but something ridiculous and Unprofessional I still rarely come, because even purely take a rocket launcher would have been no problem.
But we come back to the music, Recognition naturally deserve more Sonisphere exponents like Hammerfall, Mastodon and ELUVEITIE, which allsamt great shows offered and were able to convince the fans absolutely. Also Chrigel Eluveitie had noticed the organizational chaos and tried to loosen up a little joke the whole, Chaosphere is only one of the expressions that fell. As always with his band offered their melodic death metal with Celtic melodies that, what was expected of them: Rock, groove, dance, Jump, sound, dream, release.
Since last year (Drugs-)Tod des Slipknot bassist Paul D. Grey is the band from Iowa occurred rarely. Despite or perhaps because of it offered Slipknot a fireworks. On the main stage they had a rendezvous, how great was the furious. Although it is daylight and sun screwed the bizarre-looking clownish metallers the visual- and listening experience in spherical heights. Rotor moderately upwards spiraled moreover Joey Jordison along with his drum station and besides pyrotechnics gave Slipknot Stagediving to top. About 90 Minutes took the gig, of not a few times viewers casualties and helpers as accomplices industrious minutes gave. Unfortunately, you could see the screens of the Apollo Stage little from behind.
The catering stands at Sonisphere (not in the Hall), were hygienically swinish. Prefabricated Hamburger lay open in a box. The money was approved with bare hands, then with selbiger to press the cheese on meat and bread and meat together. The same hand scratching seconds later on the face, lifts from the ground waste and cares then again around unwashed Eating. Not one person on the stand does so, no, do it all in and Münzstock were fries and money, partially mixed in with food and. I wish it good appetite. And friends, 9 Franken for a 4 Bite Pizza piece is not only slightly exaggerated, but borders on usury, because one is only a sip of water, from the cup with gold rim
But we come back to the music, there still big headliners such as Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden queue. Even if it does not manage Mr Cooper, to impress me vocally, so it is still exciting to see for which scene the next song is to serve well. You just listen to him, that „I’m Eighteen“ long, long can not agree, his imagination and enjoy the game with crazy props has this age hardly overtaken luckily. With an impressive wealth of vitality, Energy and grotesque takes us 63 year old rocker by his theater of kitsch and self-promotion.
Totally not had kitischig Iron Maiden. The iron maiden brought at the beginning of most songs „The Final Frontier“, her latest album and perish in which I killed would not warm. Matching the new disc ballerte the intro along with the following „Final Frontier“ and „El Dorado“ from the speakers. The stage was, as almost always, well designed or. inspired by the latest output, that is, a science fiction landscape – bordered by two radio towers along with starry sky. It was a true classic: „2 Minutes To Midnight“. It's still fascinating, as topfit sweep the six men on the stage. And later still the 20 Meter version staring across the stage and evil sparkles with red eyes, is the world anyway in order. OK, the guy does look now like a space hog, but damn, it is still Eddie. Screeeeeaaaammmmm for me Basel, Screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaammmmmmmmmm for meeeee!
Quite large cinema and the domed roof and stage background twinkle lights like stars. Somehow galactic beautifully. But that was not all, what was offered the eye: Too many songs matching huge Stoffbilder as theater scenes were dragged into the stage background and Eddie did not miss.
And again then came a few recent pieces („Blood Brothers“, „The Wicker Man“ and „When The Wild Wind Blows“), to „The Evil That Men Do“ initiated the block of classics. From this moment on it was going to happen even to the most skeptical: All the same, whether the melancholic passages of „Fear Of The Dark“ or the godlike twin leads of „Iron Maiden“: Who got in these minutes no goosebumps or so rough mitgröhlte, that he had the next day kilos of feed Hustenbonbons, who on that night something wrong!

Pickpockets, allegedly from Romania, made as another evil all Stages uncertain and many a metalhead to a iPhone or wallet poorer. It was clear, that it is the perpetrators were not „Metaler“ could act, because I had never experienced that this steal each other. But as the saying goes, someday is the first time, perhaps this also applies to the flip-flops. At least pickpockets were already organized at Greenfield (!) on the way, this phenomenon so as slowly to open-air common practice seems to be.
About this year's Sonisphere event I could have written a lot, after all, were also further GWAR, In Flames, Judas Priest and so on start. But too many words spoil the Textejakulat and so I just hope on fruitful ground for criticism, because somehow I got at the present chaos again and again the Mud Jonschwil 2010 to mind. But apparently, all good things three and maybe you finally make it next year a professional and all-round compelling Festival in the kitchens of Outfield Productions and the Zurich Konzertagentur Free & Virgin to sizzle, because this year they have even more than anything else splattered with fame. Next year has been for me to be at the starting line-up, a hammer, I'll be back… or I'm on the Park and watch me free concert an
