Again the worlds biggest garden party for Metal was at hand! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: this is one of the greatest Metal events EVER! And in case you are wondering: the other is Keep It True. It had been a dry spell for concerts, so I was brimming with excitement when it finally came time to head towards the Hamburg area. After recalling how exhausted we both were last year, having made the approximately 7 hour drive up there and THEN going to the warm-up show, this year we opted to leave a day early to rest up from the tedious road trip. This proved to be a great idea and will be repeated when we go to next years H:O:A. When we arrived and packed away our stuff, we headed into Itzehoe to visit Hellion Records and make our first (but not last) CD haul of the weekend. It was a successful trip as both of us found some cool stuff, which was later blasted in our hotel room (quite possibly to the dismay of other guests) to get into the mood for the next day’s warm-up.
