Crematory

A new Millenium but was there something new?! Hell yeah, the Summer Breeze Festival took 3days, 3days of party, good music and happy people. We had 36bands played on the 3days, we started on thursday with great musicians, at first SUIDAKRA with their melodic Dark/Black Metal, then BLACKENED, really great Thrash stuff, followed by the incredible Sweden influenced Death band FLESHCRAWL and the evening was not over, now it was the time for the swabian Power Metal Kings SACRED STEEL, no, do not think this was the end, our next great musicians were CREMATORY, right, the incredible Gothic Metal band, an outstanding one-hour set, with only 3 new tracks but with all their hits and a perfect lightshow and a great sound too! Great!


"Onkel Tom" Angelripper
Es folgten die beiden Neo-Thrash-Formationen MY DEEPEST INNER und UNDERTOW, sowie NIGHT IN GALES mit ihrem melodischen Death. Bis dahin schon gut unterhalten, wurde mit dem langsamen Untergehen der Sonne danach das erwartete Death-Feuerwerk in brutalster Lautstärke von Polens bester Band, VADER, abgefeuert. Nach diesem Inferno hatten WEISSGLUT einen schweren Stand. Ganz anders dann der würdige Freitags-Abschluss mit "ONKEL TOM" ANGELRIPPER: Sauflieder in "Diebels"-Shirts mit dem Zitat des Tages: "Ich hab meinen Führerschein drei Mal weg gehabt!" Zum Glück blieben wohl fast alle Gerstengetränk-Genießer (und das sind auf der Ostalb prinzipiell alle!) auf dem direkt angrenzenden, großen Zeltplatz, um sich auch vom letzten Tag, soweit noch möglich, in nun sengender Hitze die Ohren massieren zu lassen.

Mit DEADSPAWN, TWELVE AFTER ELF, SUDDEN DEATH, M.E.L.T., E 605, BEHIND THE SCENERY, DRY ROT, MR.VADER wurde die letzte Runde des diesjährigen SUMMER BREEZE eingeläutet. Auch die Gothic Metaller CRYPTIC CARNAGE, die immer beliebter werdenden Düster-Power Metaller DARK AT DAWN, die Blackies ISEGRIM, die emotionellen Gothic Rock vertretenden FLOWING TEARS mit Klasse-Sängerin Stefanie oder die heimischen Traditions-Death Metaller APOPHIS wurden gebührend gefeiert. Den Endspurt legten allerdings drei Bands hin, die überragende und absolut beeindruckende Shows präsentierten:

Subway to Sally

And now the final stages with three outstanding and impressive bands with their great shows at first BRAINSTORM, the band play some Heavy Thrash very melodic and sometimes even hymnal sounds then it was time for the chartbreaker from FARMER BOYS call their music Precious-Hop-Doom-Crossover but what they are doing is really good. This is a german andm who really become famous. Now is the turn for one of the bands which is almost ever on tour and they enjoy what they are doing, they are unbeatable: SUBWAY TO SALLY with the impressive frontman Fish.A gig on high energetic level, this singer and bagpiper Fish, Mrs.Schmitt on the violine or Bodenski with his maid plaits on the guitar, great! To sum up one can say the SUMMER BREEZE was a real success after the disappointing number of visitors in the las year, we had approximately 5,000 visitors on three days!!!!
