Winter's Verge, Stormcast, 6th Dimension.
Stoa Backroom, Nicosia - Cyprus
Arriving a bit late (!) with my brother Michalis, 6th Dimension were about at the end of their show, but we catch up a couple of songs. Well built on stage, the sound was good but there was still room for improvement. In general, they are a promising band with great elements. Keep up the good work!
Next on line, the black metallers from Nicosia, Stormcast. Defenetly one of the best acts on the island, and they proved it again last night. They know how to strike on stage! Playing songs from their ep and demo albums including my favorite Wishful Bliss and some new material.
Headliners of the night, the power melodic metal band Winter's Verge. It's been a long time to see this band live (since power of the night VI, 2011). Excellent performance by them, playing songs from all their discography such as Eternal Damnation, Semeni, Captain's Log, To You I Sail Tonight, For Those Who Are Gone and many more including 2 cover songs, The Wicker Man (Iron Maiden) and Last Man Standing (Hammerfall). Special guest of the night was Andreas (Blynd) on vocals.
Some technical problems with the sound but that wasn't an obstacle for things to run normal!
So this is how 2013 ended for the metal in Cyprus.
Many thanks to my bloodbrother Michalis "Strachild" Benakis.
