HEAT fest review (Crazy Lixx, H.E.A.T., China)
The BEST fest I ever went to (last year) was the HEAT-festival. There we had following bands..
- China (http://www.myspace.com/chinamusic). A bit dissapointing to me. They looked way to modern and didn't play much of their old classics. They had a few lineup-changes the last year (expecially singers), but with singer Eric St. Michaels I was satisfied. The new songs were in my opinion far away from the older ones, too bad..
- HEAT (www.myspace.com/heatsweden), Right there I fell in love with this band! They only have one cd yet but it is one of the best I ever heard. And next month they'll bring out a new one.. fingers crossed.. You can call it a new Swedish AOR band, ready to conquier the world! With songs like 'Fill your head with rock',' Straight for your heart' and 'Feel it again', they manage to put a whole lot of feeling into their music, you can feel it all over you even to the last man in the crowd!
- Crazy Lixx (http://www.crazylixx.com/), this was the reason I went to Germany. Their first cd "Loud Minority" is one I'll always be able to sing along from the first to the last word (at least, when nobody hears is ;) ). A few months ago they released a second one, great too!
- I also remember a band called Pump playing there. Really energetic, awesome show, very young guys
But I don't have any music from them, that reminds to buy some..
We drove 6 hours to see these bands, but I'm really glad we did, wow what a day..
Even the venue in Germany was superb, some kind of metal-disco..
