Summer Breeze - Day 3: Thunder & Lightning God Damn!
August 18, 2018, a month ago
Old school, studs & leather versus breakdowns, Vans and gauged earlobes...emo, hardcore, metalcore, thrash, black, death, traditional, there's always something going on at Summer Breeze! Same as last year, there was a downpour during the Captain's Dinner, a mealtime gathering of organizers, label heads, select journalists, etc. that precluded the BraveWords team from taking in sets by Doro (bassist Nick Douglas later reported the power blew three times, as a puddle gathered onstage), At The Gates and Trivium. Was onsite earlier in the day for Tankard, "Gerre" pounding the mic on his exposed flabby belly. A visual spectacle of lighting for Arch Enemy, in front of a massive main stage crowd, while Satyricon followed with a darkly lit contrast. A full report will follow. Until then, here are some images from Day 3.
