Here we go, for ProgPower USA VI:
- Click here for videos of Urban Breed's acoustic performance at the pre-pre-party, with the ProgPower Forum's own "dargormudshark" on guitar
- Click here for pics from the pre-show party on Thursday, featuring Outworld, Orphaned Land's acoustic set, D.C. Cooper and friends (say, there's that dargormudshark dude again), and Dreamscape
- Main-stage bands:
- Friday #1: Manticora -- from Denmark: excellent power-metal opener for the fest
- Friday #2: Circus Maximus -- from Norway: another 'early' band that surprised me live, good prog-metal band
- Friday #3: Orphaned Land -- from Israel: they promised to bring the flood...and delivered! Excellent set indeed!
- Friday #4: Conception -- from Norway: Great reunion gig and crunchier live than we were expecting!
- Friday #5: Angra -- from Brazil: lousy sound, but a good performance excepting their overly long intro
- Saturday #1: Stride -- from Texas, USA: excellent performance, only US band on the entire bill (!)
- Saturday #4: Therion -- from Sweden: Truly amazing show, and lots of pics from the front since, as sponsor, I was allowed in front of the barricade for the entire set \m/
- Saturday #5: Stratovarius -- from effin' Finland: blurry since I wasn't in the front for any of the show
- Miscellaneous shots (signings, etc.)
- Additional pics taken with "Old Reliable" (1999 Kodak DC210+) from the pre-party and 'Progpower 6.1'
- Click here for videos taken at ProgPower 6.1: the room-party at the Grenada featuring Joel from Stride, Glenn Harveston, dargormudshark (there he is AGAIN!), a lot of other folks, a guitar, and a whole lotta booze
What a GREAT weekend, yet again! As ever, my thanks and respect to Glenn
and his excellent crew for a splendid festival, and greets to my friends,
new and old! Huge props to my sponsored band, Therion, for kicking
a lot of ass at the festival, including mine. You rule!
