Concert review: Freedom Call, Eden’s Curse and Veonity. By Alex Bock

  Munich, Backstage, Feb. 14th 2017 It was Valentine’s Day and a Tuesday. One might think, probably not the best evening for a live show. BUT…. German Power Metal band Freedom Call have made a stop in Munich during their ‘Master Of Light’ tour and their fans came. As to be expected they didn’t come alone. They brought two bands along on tour with them. First one to play that night were Veonity, a four piece from Vänersborg, [Read more]

Concert review: Devin Townsend Project, Between The Buried And Me and Leprous. Contributed by Alex Bock

  Munich, Backstage Werk, February 10th 2017 It has been a while, two years to be exact, since we had the pleasure of Devin Townsend playing in our beautiful city. When doors opened at 7pm that night, there was a really long queue waiting down the street to get inside. The show wasn’t entirely sold out, but it couldn’t have been many tickets left and by show start those were gone for sure. The venue was pretty packed from the beginning, [Read more]

Concert review: The Pretty Reckless with The Cruel Knives – Munich. By Alex Bock

  Munich, Backstage Werk, February 3rd, 2017 Another sold out show at the Backstage. The Pretty Reckless, the band around the actor/model Taylor Momsen, made a stop in Munich during their tour through Europe and the UK. Soon as I came around the corner, I saw the massive line of people queuing for the show. It was one hour before show time then. The line moved slow, but steadily, so on time for the show to begin, the venue was already [Read more]

Concert review: Avatar with The Last Band in Munich. By Alex Bock

  Munich, Backstage Halle, Dec. 9th, 2016 Another night at my favorite venue, another packed room full of excited people. Two Swedish bands were playing that night. The first band was actually called ‘The Last Band’.  Take a raspy voice, some dirty guitar riffs and rhythm and you get an idea what the band sounds like. Reminds me of a slightly heavier version of an US band called Junkyard. The Last Bands’ latest record ‘The Fall’ [Read more]

Concert review: The Amity Affliction with Northlane, Stray From The Path and Wage War by Alex Bock

  Munich, Backstage Werk, Dec. 16th, 2016 This show closed my concert year 2016 and I have to say, it ended with a blast. A few days before, the show was sold out and the place was really packed, from the beginning. The crowd was obviously into all the bands, although all three opening bands had some sound problems in the beginning. Nevertheless the audience seemingly loved their performances, considering all the crowd-surfers, mosh-pits [Read more]

Concert review: Alter Bridge with Like A Storm and Gojira, in Munich. By Alex Bock

  Munich, Zenith, December 10th, 2016 This tour was announced about five months ago and it was a highly anticipated one. After the release of their latest record ‘The Last Hero’ on October 7th, Alter Bridge started out on an extensive tour through Europe and UK early November. With them on the road were Living Colour, Volbeat, Gojira and Like A Storm. The only band that stayed throughout the whole tour were Like A Storm. They were also [Read more]

Concert review Bullet For My Valentine with Cane Hill and Killswitch Engage – Munich

  Munich, Tonhalle, November 11th, 2016 Not many bands these days play sold out shows in Munich, but with two masters of Metal playing together in one night, it’s actually not surprising at all that Bullet For My Valentine did it again. Show times were changed at the day of the show from 8 pm to 7.30 pm. Since that happened on short notice, the venue wasn’t really packed when I got there at 7 pm. To everyone’s surprise Cane Hill, the [Read more]
