W.A.S.P. concert review
W.A.S.P. continues their Return To Babylon tour, passing through Trix and filling the venue to the brim.
The demand for W.A.S.P. is apparently huge over here, since the place was that packed (although it wasn't completely sold out I believe).
They came on with their greatest hits medley, as they did in Wacken, and immediately stomped the set into action with "On Your Knees".
The classics "L.O.V.E. Machine", "Wild Child" and "I Wanna Be Somebody" followed in a short but varied set.
Much like the Wacken gig, "The Idol" took up a lot of set time, and combined with "Heaven's Hung In Black", the set appeared shorter than it could have been. It doesn't matter how cool these songs are, it affects the show's tempo hugely.
W.A.S.P.'s stage presence was perfect again, as always, rallying the crowd to shout along and projecting video clips and old school horror and war movie snippets to accompany the songs.
The Frankenstein/Nosferatu/Zombie/... compilation was nothing less than awesome, but did not draw the attention away from Blackie and company.
As always, the crowd varied between all sorts of metal and rock loving punters, showing once again that W.A.S.P. is one of music's greatest across the board.
Between the ever unsatisfactory set list (in my opinion at least), bad choice of viewing place (people passing by our spot every single minute of the show) and the overly full venue, this was still an awesome show and goes to show that W.A.S.P. always delivers. If not 100% to my liking, then always at least 80.
