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.
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.
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…

So long I’ve been trying to match
It doesn’t work
I’m trying I don’t know
The apparition of this world
I dragged you to it
I’ve killed another man
I was raging
The pain is gone
I’ve run away from institutions
I own myself, life
There’s no way
There is light in this world I fight for
The reason you won’t leave this cage
Betray your child
The desire that you won’t serve to reveal yourself
Forgot to create your own life
The sky is ooh… Over me
I run on time
