Party-San Review 06,-08.08.2015
Party-San Friday 07.08.2015
Friday morning around 11.30 Am in the Party-san there is already a crowd, waiting for the opening band. Like every year , Friday and Saturday starts with a Grindcore band, this year the opening band is CLITEATER from Holland.
At the beginning there were only two guys in this band, using a drum machine now they are complete with 5 band members. The circle pit in front of the stage was very funny to look at, because there were lots of funny costumes, like bloody Pig heads or a Duck swimming ring.
That was an awesome show the 5 guys on the stage made, all of us had a pretty good time and the PartySan-Crowd slowly woke up.
Only after a few minutes the next band hit the stage, VANHELGD the Death Metal from Mjölby, Sweden. Started in 2007, they have 3 album released. Great old school Death Metal which dirty rotten sound and slow tight riffing. They do a pretty great show, I dont know so much about this band, just heard the name of this band before, but it was a lot of fun and I enjoyed watching their live performance.
Around 2 o clock afternoon, the sun was shining and it was very hot and no shadw could be found, but it was time for the Street Metal band GEHENNAH from Sweden. Even with this temperatures the crowd was partying to the Motörhead-like sound with the alcoholic lyrics.
AETERNUS make Black Metal / Death Metal and are coming from Bergen, Norway. The band is active since 1993 after one year they already made their Demo album “Walk My Path”, in 2013 they returned successfully after a 7 year break, the extreme music style is defined best as dark metal. Fast, aggressive, intense and brutal, which reverberate an angry growling voice. They did a great live performance. I enjoyed the complete show.
It was not enough time for me to grab some Beer or get some food and come the next band Death Black Doom Metal from Holland SOULBURN which came after Aeturnus. Growling low voice, fat distortion came from the stage, after few minutes , it seems that the audience was not that big at that time, less people than before, because it was very very warm. Even the people that were there were partying, moshing and had a great time.
second album “ KINGDOM OF WORMS”. It was a great live show, full of energy. They sound kind like a mix between US Old school Death Metal and Swedish Death Metal, they got the audience out of the summer-lethargy and made a devilish live show.
Next band wa also some old school Death / Thrash Metal from Berlin Germany - POSTMORTEM. At the beginning the sound was not so quite good but got better within a few songs. I have seen them performing a great life show on the Tank Mit Frank Birthday Festival. We shared the stage with them, they do a quite great life performance. But when they were on the stage, it was not quite crowded, because the first band on Tent-stage was playing. Almost half of the day, we are just drinking more water than Beer. It was great time to drink more Beer, sitting on the ground with friends , while waiting for the next band.
Few minutes after the sound check sound was done, the Band originally from Jerusalem, Israel now originated in Amsterdam Holland – MELECHESH, playing Oriental Black Metal. They are one of the first non Israeli bands signed from the Middle East, with their foundations in geographic and religious history, with Hyper blast drum Beat , with difference variable tempo from faster into slow, melodic and Oriental. After I took some photos, I just joined back with friends watching MELECHESH till the end. It was an amazing show , I was so glad to see them performing life.
AGALLOCH - Dark Metal / Folk / Progressive from Portland, Oregon, USA. I don’t know so much about this band and also don’t listen to kind of music like this stuff, but it was something new for me cause they play kind of colossal and cinematic sound. Could be the soundtrack to existential themes concerning man, nature, loss, and death. It was a gloomy , dark and depressing atmosphere, a really great show and I was so glad to see them perfrom live at Party-san.
The next band to hit the stage was the Death Metal from Holland, ASPHYX. They are quite successful in the metal scene. ASPHYX are one of the bands at Party-San, where nearly every metal-fan is waiting for. The death metal with a large dosage of doom makes their sound both heavy and crushing in aural and atmospheric terms.
BLOODBATH - Death Metal band from Sweden. I listened to all of their albums from the beginning ,it was one of my favourite bands but my first time show seeing them performing live. At the beginning the guitar playerhad some sound or technical problems, I saw, that he was angry or stressed, cause the sound was not really good. It seemed they were not in the mood to play at that time, but after few Songs were done it sounded much better. It was awesome, because they played one of my favourite songs , called “Eaten”.
Melodic folk metal from Helsinki, Finland - ENSIFERUM. Its kind like old Viking heroes which are inspire by archaic cultures. Telling the stories of past time. With power metal riffs, and raspy guttural vocals. Ensiferum was founded in 1995 and they have many albums done. Sorry, but this is not my kind of music. Also seen them in some Festival open air in 2013. but I enjoyed to see the life performance they are really awesome and fantastic on stage.
Finally the Headliner on Friday hits the stage, now with one hour delay after the soundcheck, and as the Red light went on, CANNIBAL CORPSE hit the stage, the absolut legend of US Death Metal. Nearly all Metalheads couldn`t wait to see them perform. It was really full in front of the stage, and they played one of my favourite songs, I cum Blood, I was moshing nearly to unconsciousness. Awesome show, they have really power and do also a very aggressive show on the stage, especially the vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher.
