Eindhoven Metal Meeting – 2013
December 12th, 13th en 14th 2013 at the Effenaar the Eindhoven Metal Meeting (EMM) festival was held. I only went on Friday.
Great perfomances of a lot of bands: Napalm Death, Tiamat, The Rotted, The Church of Pungent Stench to name a few. Napalm Death is always a joy to see. I don’t have any recent albums, but they played a lot of old classic songs. I really enjoyed Pungent Stench. I didn’t understand why they were programmed on the small stage. It was a blast! Unfortunately a festival is full of choices. I want to see Tiamat, so missed the end op PS. Although Tiamat is quiet a different style I found it a great performance. A pause during all the violence \m/. They also performed the Sleeping Beauty (a roadie did the grunts). Hopefully rumors Johan Edlund will leave Tiamat are not true.
Watain didn’t do it for me. Great theatrical performance, but not my cup of tea.
