I'd been looking forward to this gig for a long time and I wasn't disappointed.
First up were Rumskib - to be honest I've no idea what she was singing, but the music was excellent. However, the singer did seem to be yawning every time she sang.
Next up Manual. This almost stole the show for me, which is almost sacrilegious for me to say being such a fan of Ulrich. I didn't really know Manual's music before this gig, but I'll make sure I check it out.
Jonas was playing guitar in the centre, with two chaps either side on laptops. Each piece was beautifully crafted, with sublime swells and crisp beats.
It would have been nice if they'd something to the crowd at some point but I think everyone was enjoying the music too much too really care.
Finally, the man himself, Ulrich Schnauss. God knows how he manages to generate all those sounds on his own but thank god he does.
The tunes from Goodbye were much rawer without the vocals but they didn't suffer in any way.
Ulrich was joined on Stage by Rob McVey of Longview for Shine. This was slightly disappointing as the vocals never really had a chance against the music. The beauty of that piece is with the delicate vocals of the gentle swells of the music.
Rob was back, displaying some interesting guitar skills for the highlight of the gig, Medusa, which, quite frankly, rocked.
A superb evening all round.
A quick disclaimer: all the tracks sounded very very different live compared to the album versions, hence my lack of a set list. If anyone has an ideas of the setlist for any of the artists please let me know.
