Schalldruck Festival – Heavy Winterstorm 2019Posted in - Robin's Reviews
Robin went down to the Schalldruck Festival – Heavy Winterstorm 2019 where 8 local bands from Bavaria took the stage and showed the crowd what they sounded like.
The first band was RAVENFIELD. The vocals sounded a bit like those of James Hatfield. The music was okay but not further noteworthy. https://www.ravenfield.de
Next were WILD HAWKS, the worst band of the evening: poor songs, out of tune and not tight at all. https://www.facebook.com/thewildhawks/
Then came MEROE. Drums and bass were temporary replacements. Like most bands of the evening the musicians were technically competent but the songs not very catchy and actually only average. http://www.meroe.de/
REVEREND HOUND was the first band that Robin found really interesting. They were by far the heaviest and really had a couple of good songs. The sound was quite bad, though: drums too loud and the guitars frequerntly not loud enough, with an overall muddy and non-transparent mix. However, in the future Robin might attend another gig under hopefully better sound conditions. http://www.reverendhound.com/
STILL AWAKE with a female singer from Hungary in an appealing outfit were neither very melodic nor very haunting, sort of experimental, with some good classical soprano parts every now and then. Not bad but too monotonues for Robin’s taste. https://www.facebook.com/still.awake.rock/
They were followed by GLORY DAZE. The intonation of the vocals wasn’t very good – but the singer’s connecting with the audience outstanding. The chorus of “Mayday” was quite catchy and the cover of the song Turbo Lover by Judas Priest just flawless. Solid entertainment! https://glorydaze.de/
PASSWORD MONKEY were okay but again Robin missed some good hooklines. http://passwordmonkey.de/
Robin had to leave and didn’t sees LABEL Z, the last band. Maybe next time! https://label-z.de/
