Komara & O.R.k., live at the Boerderij Zoetermeer, 17 February 2016

Standard

First, I would like to apologize because this concert review is a bit shorter than my concert reviews. The most important reason is that I actually was completely caught up in the music of both bands, and because of that I totally forgot to make notes during the gigs. Continue reading

So this was February 2016… (And I hope I will be back soon with a working PC… DARNIT!)

Standard

First of all: Apologies again! It seems like my computer is still suffering from technical problems, which means I can’t do much when it comes to writing, reviewing and all the other stuff I would like to do and need to do to keep my work flowing. I really hope that the problems will get solved soon! Anyway, let’s continue with some good news…

Maiden UniteD, Live At The Boerderij Zoetermeer, 19 December 2015

Standard

Maiden UniteD are an acoustic tribute to the band Iron Maiden. When I reviewed their latest album Remembrance I was really impressed how this band turned the powerful metal tracks into lovely acoustic songs. This would be the first time I would see this band live. I didn’t know what to expect and how this band would perform live on stage. The back of the stage was nicely decorated with big banners and the stage itself was filled with instruments and amplifiers. When the band entered the stage they started with the track Strange World, a great track. After playing the track Charlotte The Harlot Damian Wilson introduced the band in short to the audience. Jonas Pap and Camilla van der Kooij were only on stage when they had to play. Continue reading

IQ, Live At The Boerderij Zoetermeer, 12 December 2015

Standard

Every year IQ comes back to the Boerderij for a special Christmas show, named ‘Christmas Bash’. This would be the second Christmas Bash show I attended, making this the third IQ gig I ever went to. This band is always worth to watch because those guys know how to make a brilliant show. The first time I went to a gig was quite some years ago, they just released their album Frequency. Despite the fact that the band exists for quite some years I never really heard any of their music. I went to my first IQ concert with a friend and we both had no clue who they were, how they would perform live and what to expect. That first IQ concert is still one of the best gigs I’ve ever seen. I was totally flabbergasted by their performance. This band knows how to entertain the audience and be professional musicians at the same time. They are passionate when they play songs from both their older and more recent albums. I interviewed the band right before their gig, you can listen to the interview here. Continue reading
