Even if i don`t understand Russian that well, i get a little grip of this conversation... it was so sad that Darkwater had to cancel. And i understand that many people chose to not show up then.
But, i would like to say... Those guys who organized this festival made a very good job. This is one of the few organizers who is concerned about showing "not well known band" to you`re country. That is a very difficult job, becouse they never know the respond from the audience. That`s why not so many organizers dare to try that, and just safe themselfs with well known bands. From my "band working" point of view, it`s so sad for all the good band in the world, they never get to show themselfs becouse it`s to much of those organizers around.
From my "band working" point of view, it`s so sad for all the good band in the world, they never get to show themselfs becouse it`s to much of those organizers around. And from my "band fan" point of view, i have also been like: No, i would not go to that festival,or consert, becouse i have never heard about the band.It actually works like this: I think we all have some band on our list, that is not so well known, and you`re dream is to see that live some day..... That is not going to happend for you, becouse of the SAFE organizers. And if you could have a little bit chanse of having you dream come true... That actually means that you have to go to a festival/consert, with bands you don`t have heard about, with bands you might not like too well, ect...
In that way, the organizer will feel safe to booke more unknown bands, and you have a big chanse to see one of you`re fav band. And consider this: What is you`re choice... Being home, go out on the usually pub, or a home party with friends.... OR, pay a small ticket price, see live metall music, meet other metalheads and drink beer, is that to bad?... The only thing you can get is, maybe a new band you like, a good live show(from a band you never heard of), you will probable se bad bands too.... But, you give the organizer a chanse to continue his work booking other bands....just by being there.... In small words: No audience=No more music!
I hope, some day...That people will be able to change their attitude, so bands (beside, Maiden, Metallica ect...) have a chanse in this world. :)
При всей моей безграничной любви к Сакруму прогом я их, конечно, могу назвать с большой натяжкой =)) с другой стороны, как по мне, так уж лучше слушать метал с элементами прога, чем чистый прог/пост типа Прогма-с, который вызывает лишь приступ зевоты.
Тоже самое могу сказать и насчет большей части творчества Dream Театра.
Sacrum выступили потрясающе!!! Уж их точно не могу отнести к группам 3-го эшелона. Шёл только ради них и в полнейшем восторге.
А организаторам - неуд за весь фест. Спасибо конечно, что сделали его, но пустой зал - удручающе действует (((
We are extremely excited to visit our neighbours in the north and play in the proud country of Russia for the first time! We hope to see as much of you people there, for a evening full of POWER!
