Just got back from Northampton and another stonking show from Glenn and the boys!
I know i say it every tour, but i just dont know how Glenn does it.
So much energy, thumping the bass, jumping round the stage like someone half his age, and then of course the voice
As at previous shows at The Roadmender the sound was really good. Nice and loud but also clear. Soren had a real crunchy sound, Pontus a nice "crack" on the snare & thump on the bass drum, and Anders could be heard on the rockers as well as in the quieter bits.
Standouts tonight for me were (all of them!) Orion, First Step of Love
Medusa and You Got Soul.
Soren made some killer solos and especially the crazy one from Orion - just like JJ did but with his own take on it.
You Got Soul showed just how tight this lineup is. Great drums form Pontus on this one.
Glenn didnt do any of his vocal improvs as no Dont Let Me Bleed or Mistreated but still showed just what he can do
He's got a LONG summer of shows remember!
Soren's cd is on sale on the merchandise stand for a tenner and he was out front signing it after the show. I'll play it this week and try and get a review done on here.
And finally, nice to see a few familiar faces - see you at Buxton
