Mead & Greed Festival Pt. 2

The second day of the festival started with Helgrindur, playing a great set and delivering straight forward Pagan Metal. Perfect for setting the mood for the bands to come.

Remember Twilight entered the stage with two violinists and a cellist. They brew them together with heavy riffs and vocal variety to create their unique style, labeled „Kammermusik-Core“.

I was looking forward to seeing Tales of Ratatösk that night and the 7 people of the squirrel battalion put on a great show! Pagan Folk Metal at it’s finest!

Die Habenichtse were filling the next slot and their “Medieval Beggar Folk” was a nice intermezzo. Jolly and danceable tunes for everybody who knows that happiness doesn’t lie in wealth but in enjoying the moment, good music and a drink with friends.

From the second they started to play Vanaheim had the crowd by their balls. The Dutch heathen horde and promising rising star played a strong set and left the audience cheering!

I really enjoyed to see Gernotshagen again. Their epic metal, the melodic soundscapes and the awesome vocals of their frontman Askan fascinate me from the beginning!

They played their top tracks of Weltenbrand, older stuff and even some brand new songs! Great show!

Mead & Greed Festival Pt. 1

Yesterday I rode to Oberhausen to enjoy a good bunch of Folk and Metal bands during this 2-day-festival.

Nemoreus from Austria opened and delivered some fierce Folk Metal. Great variety of vocals and instruments.

Brisinga followed and played their set of ethereal, gentle folk music. With flute, harp, cello, hurdy-gurdy and nyckelharpa they enchanted the audience!

The next band was Baumbart and their Epic Acoustic Rock took the crowd immediately into their realm. If you like Turisas‘ acoustic session, this is right up your alley.

I regret never having checked out Haggefugg before, because their mix of metal, medieval bagpipes and fun made everyone jump and chant along. Heavy, entertaining and energetic!

Headliner and last band on the stage were the glorious Ragnaröek with tons of neck breaking songs and a great performance.
