When The Claymore enter the stage, the venue is half filled. Those five guys start in a very motivated manner and can convince with their stage performance and action. As a special they include a cover of In Flames` classic `Trigger` into their set. A solid beginning of an evening.

The next up are Mystic Prophecy, who are allowed to play 45 minutes. The Swabians, whose fans are not a minority of the audience, are kicking ass from the first second. The sound is tight, therefore it´s really fun listening to hymns like `Back from the Dark`, `Rock the Night` or the formidable `Sacrifice Me`. Although 45 minutes are quite a short time if you have already five albums, MP are presenting a very good mixture of their back catalogue. Also the new drummer Stefan Dietrich can convince. All in all a good show, which ends too early.

For 10 years now, the German Metal Commando Primal Fear has been rocking through venues all over the globe. The logic consequence: an anniversary tour with special setlist. So the guys around Mat Sinner and Ralf Scheepers are presenting a two-hour lesson in history of PF today, with Jurassic stuff (`Running in the Dust` and `Battalions of Hate`), mid-old (`Angel in Black` and `Nuclear Fire`) and new material (`Seven Seals` and `New Religion`). The setlist is ok and the show as well, but nevertheless something is missing today. Perhaps the charisma? Or is it perhaps the feeling to know all the material already? I don`t know. But obviously many others think like me. When half the show is over, quite a few fans are already leaving the venue. And also fans with PF shirts. Strange...
