15.30 (PAS) TORTURIZED
TORTURIZED from Magdeburg were in charge of kicking things off on the still slightly rainy Wednesday. Unfortunately not too many festivalgoers had found their way to the beginning of the NEW BLOOD AWARD playoffs at the Party Stage, which had been made bigger for this year’s festival. However, more and more people arrived as time passed, which boosted the quintet’s enthusiasm and gave their death metal songs an extra kick. Inspired by the driving sound, the first few heads started rotating, quickly making the Party Tent into a worthy setting for the NEW BLOOD AWARD. Self-confident and aware of their own strengths, the five-piece led the audience through a well-balanced set of old and new songs. Especially the songs “Conquering The Throne” and “Gallery Ov Blood” – from the EP with the same title – sounded convincing and already set the bar high for the following acts. TORTURIZED put on an entertaining show and warmed up the crowd nicely in the early afternoon. Well done!
