Fjørt (7/10)
Start 19:30 / End 20:00
Fjørt is a young German band, that released its latest album “D’Accord” almost one year ago. The band came to stage earlier than everybody thought, and, after a five minutes Ambient intro, started with an instrumental part that created a surprising wall of sound. Fjørt sang mostly in German and presented a short half-hour set of heavy Hardcore with interesting Sludge and Post-Metal passages. No space for melodies or clean vocals, the German trio smashed the audience with no sympathy, collecting applauses and full support from the attendees.
