Occvlta (5/10)
Start: 21:05 / End: 21:45
Nice esoteric atmosphere created by candles on the stage. What is missing is the typical Black Metal evil. They aren’t poser but they need to improve this side. Better the faster songs compared to the mid-tempo ones. Big margin of improvement.

Kadavar (8/10)
Start: 22:10 / End 23:15
Are they original? Not at all. But fuck you they are an incredible time machine to the 70’s! Riffs and attitude stolen from The Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, add some Stoner and the mix is done. You leave the concert with the desire to have that long beard too! A kick in your ass to catapult you 40 years back.

The Secret (8/10)
Start: 19:20 / End: 19:50
Italian fucking evil bomb surrounded by red fog. That’s what happens when Black Metal fucks Post-Hardcore from behind. Next show Palazzo Grazioli in Rome to save the Land. Keep spreading worldwide the beast. Please.

The Storm of Light (6/10)
Start: 20:30 / End 20:50
Here Hardcore slept hard with Doom. Powerful but short gig from the neurosis nephews. Minus points for the Never-ending sound check and for the fix “Blue eyes” scenography. I know from past concerts they can do better than this.

Touché Amoré (7/10)
Start: 21:15  / End 21:50
Nothing new under the Hardcore sun. Too close to The Emo world to really appreciate them but when you see the pizza-face kids screaming, singing, moshing and flying under / from the stage, there’s nothing left to say. Great concert, great energy, good that they avoided clean vocals. Nevertheless I hope they have been all sodomized by The Secret in the backstage…

Converge (9/10)
Start: 22:10 / End 23:10
The Post-Hardcore made person: Kurt-GOD-Ballou. The one who created it, changed it, evolved it and the only one who can kill it. When E=mc2 becomes music. Impossible to stop the head banging or to not mosh. Sometimes you want to scream laud and to give a punch in the teeth to the one next to you. Without reason. Just to set free the energy. The energy rising from the desperation, from the suffering, the energy that can lead you to the catharsis. Gig of the year in the extreme field. Amen.
