My fav were Arkona and Xandria. Epica was good as well but there's something wrong with the mixer settings. The instruments were too dominant in relation to Simones' voice. I saw them earlier this year and there it was the same "problem". Trillium, November-7, Skeptical Minds and Crysalyswere unexpectedly good. Arch Enemy was good as expected ;-) Meden Agan sucked because they brought 2 cover songs and shortened their show by 10 minutes (of 40). Sarah Jezebel Deva either had a bad mixer setting or her voice is just awful. The others were more or less average. From Delain, Lacona Coil and Amberian Dawn i expected a little more. All in all it was a good festival and depending on the lineup next year, worth another visit ...
@phrene awesome...yeah I heard. Strange because security seemed pretty nice most of the time. Wow 20 times...don't think I have seen any band that many times!! Thats really cool!
I enjoyed their show..very lively and good songs. I would see them again if they toured near me!
@ Fordyville: Haha, yep, that's me! :D I'm glad she did, because the security wasn't going to let us in... ugh. What did you think of their show? MFVF was my 20th Arkona show, so it was kind of special for me :)
Such a great weekend!! Spent most of it filming the bands for the DVD..but fun times and always a good view :)
Personal favourite bands were Benighted Soul, Xandria and Arch Enemy. From a filming point of view Arkona and Seduce the Heaven had plenty of energy and movement and from the visual side that last song of 69 chambers looking absolutely amazing with the lights!!
Ik vond t super, ook wel lekker dat t niet zo druk was (voor ons dan, niet voor de organisatie natuurlijk) Lacuna Coil had n fantastisch.optreden met zelfs een paar akoestische numners, en Christina was goed bij stem. Arch Enemy was solide, maar dat is mijn muziek niet zo, Dimlight een aangename verassing en n fijne opwarmer. Delain nog gezien en waren ook sterk met veel variatie in de nummers met zelfs.nog een Winthin Tempation-cover door George Oosthoek. Arkona was mijn persoonlijke highlught, vette stage, eindelijl een muzikant erbij voor de whistles en doedelzak-deuntjes en Masha was awesome als altijd; energiek, dansbaar, afwisselend en een epische setlist.
