After a long long time 2 bandsof this evening return to Z7 where girlpower reigns, because all 3 bands feature a front woman. Those 3 ladies who draw all attention this night could not be more different, which is good because thereīs something for every taste. No matter if fragile high, rock or very variable voice, you find it all tonight.

Punctually at 20.15 h the Polish Gothic-Band Unsun starts, and most people might be familiar with guitarrist Mauser (Vader) who founded the band with the blond fragile Aya in 2006. The name Unsun should express the interplay between day and night, light and dark, as the quartet explains. They play at Z7 for the first time and they donīt have an easy job to convince the audience. The songs are musically and structurally well done and catchy, but Ayaīs voice isnīt strong enough to get the things going. But the Gothic-Lolita can be admired for her styling, especially those boots.

had a difficult start because their Electro-Goth doesnīt fit to the other bands too well. This special Dutch Rockband features 3 ladies who get into it with some drive, so they get the audience going at some point. Singer Margriet, all in latex, shows off her tattoos, while her colleagues Manon o Keyboard and Karin on drums plus the male members Rik and Martin deliver the right sound.

Many are anxiously waiting for Tristania, because this band has not been in Switzerland since 2005. Therefore many do not know the new singer Mariangela (start photo) only via CD. The singer with Italian roots shows right from the start that she is a worthy replacement of Vibeke. This small powerful lady takes over the stage easily, now wonder that she disappears when itīs not her turn just to have the men shine a bit, too. In my opinion she is the right person for this band, something fresh and new, and even though some tones might be slightly off, her likable charme makes up for it. Kjetil, who does the majority of the male vocals, also convinces with his clean voice and declares how happy he is to be back at Z7, for him the best live club in Europe. The only weak point was the sound mix, there was some white-noise all the time, difficult to bare, and I hope this will be repaired soon.
