Final holiday time wasn’t just about carols and eggnog this calendar year. For symphonic metal followers (particularly here at FNR), it was the reward that retained on providing. Again in December, an announcement got us all rather fired up and landed in our inbox: a tour that includes not 1, but four extraordinary bands a aspiration lineup for any symphonic, people, and energy metalheads in Europe.

We’re no strangers to the whirlwind of concert and competition year prep that comes at the close of the year heading into the new, but this tour experienced a specific sort of electric power about it. It wasn’t just the prospect of capturing theses astounding bands live it was the sheer electricity of the bands coming alongside one another. We’re chatting a symphonic metal powerhouse, and enable me convey to you, enjoyment was brewing.

The tour kicked off in Birmingham and like a conquering tide of melodic metal, the bands arrived ashore in their longboats in London on the eve of St. Patrick’s Day. Leaves’ Eyes arrived with Metalite, Northtale, and Catalyst Criminal offense right there alongside them. For me, it was like witnessing a gathering of our preferred steel clans.

I have been hooked on Metalite and have liked their latest album. Observing them bring that power to the phase was thrilling. Leaves’ Eyes were being a power to be reckoned with, tearing via a killer setlist in assist of their hottest album, ‘Myths of Fate.’ For fans like me who’ve been ready ages to see them stay, this was a night to recall. Last but not least having to witness their efficiency was properly well worth the hold out. And let’s not fail to remember that Leaves’ Eyes have a background of crafting albums that have built it in our leading places on our “best of” lists at the finish of the yr. Their unwavering regularity is truly a thing specific.

That packed group at the Dome was a just a showcase to the collective strength of the evening these bands know how to pump up their viewers. This concert is a whole-blown symphonic metallic practical experience. If this phenomenal lineup is coming wherever in the vicinity of you, trust me, do no matter what it requires to get a ticket. They’ve continue to acquired a number of extra dates in March in advance of wrapping up the tour in Berlin on April 13th capture them even though you can.
