Bang Your Head!!! Festival Day 1: Darkness Descends
July 15, 2016, a year ago
First day of the annual Balingen, Germany gathering, the sun played peek-a-boo all day, before the forecast rain finally made an appearance, right before the evil trio of Candlemass, Carcass and the headlining Slayer were scheduled to take the stage. By the end of the night, you could see your breath! Earlier, it was a musical menagerie, beginning with Stallion, followed by (in order), the triple guitar attack of Leatherwolf, Babylon A.D., the female fronted Battle Beast, the latest supergroup The Dead Daisies (featuring Doug Aldrich, John Corabi and Marco Mendoza), as well as Dragonforce. Still two full days to go. An all-encompassing report will be posted later.
