The French metallers aren’t messing about, once they made it to “Flying Whales”, the bodies start piling up and dropping and flying and surfing more heavily and more intense then we could handle.
U.D.O. have a wonderfully animated, fun loving, crowd taunting super talented guitarist. He’s 100 times too cocky, loves himself a little bit too much but by god, can he play!
Interview with Joakim Nilsson (Vocals, Guitars) (Graveyard)
Thankfully not as they came back out a few minutes later to fly into Rusty Cage, a personal favourite of mine, but then killed all of the energy they had going with Like Suicide, which don’t get me wrong is a song I really like, but it’s a bit of a downer in an encore. The show ended with Beyond the Wheel and then a really annoying 10 minutes plus of an aural assault with just Ben and Kim on stage backs to the crowd and a lot of puzzled looks going on. The weird and at times wonderful Soundgarden for me at least just didn’t hit enough highs tonight, not a bad gig, but certainly not blown away either. Till next time I live in hope.
