Hellfest 2022 Day 4: Metallic Grandpas Day

The fourth (or second first, relying on the standpoint) day of Hellfest begins! Like every good begin, the final one is fairly calm because the day actually does begin at 3:30pm. And it is lots of enjoyable to observe our competition goers this second weekend! In lower than 10 s we all know establish the profile of the latter:

  • Euphoria, nearly insufferable operating round: the festivalgoer who did not have his first weekend
  • Peaceable, with a smirk, calm however comfortable, like a dad watching the mocking gaze of the primary kind of festivity: a festivity that was in a position to make the most of a number of days off to relaxation after the primary loopy weekend!

A particular point out deserves the garden of the location, which (nearly) managed to revive its inexperienced aspect a bit (because of rain, uncommon however welcome). Modulo the Kingdom of Muscadet, the place not one strand survived the onslaught of 180,000 festival-goers roasting within the scorching solar of the primary weekend.

However sufficient speak and let’s discuss amplifiers, what does it say right this moment?

Altar and Burning Temple with Zeal and Ardent, Solstaffir, Heilung and Insomnia

Altar and Temple levels have abilities right this moment! Let’s begin with one of the vital unbelievable bands of latest years: Zeal & Ardor.

The Swiss comrades and accomplices of Manuel Gagne actually made the Temple scream at 19:20. We have not seen such a crowd on these levels since Alestorm in 2015! So if we comply with the trajectory, the subsequent playthrough of our black/African metallic spirituals must be on the primary stage. In any case, their path is already marked.

Then the Finns from Insomnium got here alongside and gave us a fairly excellent efficiency. On the identical time, energetic, melodic, but in addition superbly executed, this can be a actual demonstration of Melodic Loss of life that we noticed! And an essential reminder: it’s in Finland that we produce the perfect melodic loss of life metallic!

For the extra adventurous who needed to remain within the Scandinavian nations, it was important to find the post-metal sounds of Solstaffir after darkish. A strong, hovering, at occasions nearly dreamlike ambiance, which sadly suffers from a scarcity of visible accompaniment (as with Devin Townsend). Some illustrations to assist us level the cursor on the Altar and the Temple, please, Mr. Barbeau!

Who mentioned that there’s an age restrict for acting on Hellfest levels? Positively not us!

The 80s metallic lovers have been redone right this moment. The legendary teams of these years exchange one another with the accuracy of a metronome on two primary levels.

Helloween at Hellfest 2022

After the UFOs that proved to us that they will play in addition to a sure Michael Schenker who was on the identical stage a number of days in the past….
