Joe Satriani @Cirque Royal, Brussels BE – 30 October 2010

First of all I should say that I had only heard of Satriani, so I went to the show quite clueless about what to expect. I knew I would see a technically brilliant guitar player, but little else. So if any huge fans read this, forgive my candor. I was sort of replacing Ywannish at the last minute, for which I am very grateful, even more so now that I’ve just come back from the concert.

Lokerse Festival @ Lokeren, Belgium – 1 August 2010 “Metal Day”: Anthrax – Life of Agony – Panic Cell – Papa Roach

Belgium is a country full of festivals, all you need is find your music in one of them and some good company. I must say I had both on 1 August at Lokerse Festival, a ten-day summer festival in Lokeren, Belgium, which took place for the first time in 1975, presenting over the years big names as Sisters of Mercy, Iggy & The Stooges, Madness, Sex Pistols, Simple Minds, The Cure. I attended only one day, the “metal day” as one of my friends called it, to see Anthrax, Life of Agony, Panic Cell and Papa Roach.

Sonisphere Festival DAY THREE @ Romexpo, Bucharest, ROMANIA – 25-27 June 2010

It is incredible how this festival could pull together so many styles: trash, doom, progressive, rockabilly, alternative metal, grunge, power metal and there was still room for one more, industrial. It was the biggest festival Romania had so far and it will be difficult to challenge this in the future.

Sonisphere Festival DAY TWO @ Romexpo, Bucharest, ROMANIA – 25-27 June 2010

DAY 2 AND THE BIG FOUR

Yes, Saturday at last.. Vita de Vie, Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer and Metallica.

Sonisphere Festival DAY ONE @ Romexpo, Bucharest, ROMANIA – 25-27 June 2010

For very many people, 2010 Sonisphere is synonymous with “The Big Four” – the 4 most famous thrash bands together in the same festival – which made it the biggest attraction of this metal summer. But few may know that Sonisphere is held just for the second time ever, that it’s the only European itinerant festival, and what sets it apart it is a core group of bands touring together through different countries.

Stone Sour @ AB, Bruxelles BE – 14 June 2010

Friends’ positive discussions about Stone Sour’s shows, the fact that they’re quite promoted on mainstream radio stations and their strong and coherent sound made me very curious about them, so I decided to see them live even if their melodic accents dissolves a little bit of what I like about the metal sound.

Rage Against the Machine @ GelreDome, Arnhem NL – 09 June 2010

On 10 June, Rage Against the Machine reached Holland with their 2010 Tour. The Battle of Arnhem was one of the only six European dates they had for this year and took place in GelreDome, the largest Netherlands venue.
The event announced them as headliners and Gallow, Gogol Bordello and Jane’s Addiction as Special Guests.

Garcia plays Kyuss @ Vooruit, Ghent, Belgium – 29 May 2010

If you like Kyuss, if you like stoner, if you love enjoying a live concert where music comes your way because it’s played well and from the heart and if you go to the concert with the idea “I’m gonna hear Kyuss, never thought I would ever reach this moment!”, the concert was a good one!
