HammerFall came on stage and opened with their first song of the night “ Brotherhood “ having never heard this band before and despite not usually listening this sub genre of Rock and Metal, I didn’t really mind the first song and was excited to see what the rest of the show was like. And funny enough despite this being a show for a clearly older crowd ( which I based purely on the age of the people in the crowd ) I ended up enjoying a good few songs from their list one that sticks out in particular to me is “ Hammer High “ as a matter of fact I’m currently singing it in my head right now because it is EXTREMELY catchy. A new fan has been born.

The same can be said for legendary Helloween, while it was clear that this band was enjoyed heavily by a slightly older age group I found myself enjoying the extravagant guitar solos and clean vocals. I think one of my favorite parts of the show non related to the actual set was the giant orange pumpkin center piece. They played some of their classics from the Keeper of the Seven Keys era with likes of  “I Want Out’, “Future World” same for other crowd favorites the likes of “Eagle Fly Free” and “Skyfall”.

Congrats to Helloween on being inducted into the Metal Hall of Fame as is very deserved as pioneers of the power metal genre.
