Tonight’s support act came in the form of ‘Dakesis’ with the always difficult task of being first up and getting the crowd going and due to ‘Black Moon Rising Uk’ having to pull out at the last minute due to flu and lurgy (Get Well Soon Guys)this means a slightly longer set. Although being on the small stage at the Corp well if you have ever experienced it you know just what i mean , if not well lets say you can have a bit of a stiff neck come the end of the show .
This female fronted prog rock power quartet/quintet hailing from Birmingham just down the road takes all this in their stride as they perform ‘The Sacrifice’, ‘By The Fading Light’ ‘The Great Insurrection’ as they were all bellowed to the great satisfaction of the onlooking and increasing marauding metallers, before we could wave a flag of approval it was the end of Dakesis’s set but not before we all hail to Mirro who is the ‘Thunderstone’ crewman who well holds everything together, and as such Dakesis thanked him with their very own rendition of Holding Out For A Hero/Mirro.
Although restricted by the small stage this was not going to stop Thunderstone as this was for the fans , and it wasn’t long before the ever appreciative fans were treated to one monster track after another and in some style with ‘Veterans of the Apocalypse’ , ‘Forever More’ . Thunderstone were really out to prove something tonight and they did just that as they were on ‘The Path’ ‘To Dirt Metal ‘as we strode ‘Through The Pain’ a mere ‘10,000 Ways’ is all it took to get ‘Higher’ as we screamed and roared in appreciation as we ‘Let The Demons Free’ without using the ‘Tool Of The Devil ‘ only the horn of the hand , but until next time we have to wait ‘Until We Touch The Burning Sun’. As the night went by all too quick and we had to say our goodbyes , until next time.
