For three days great bands made their performances on different stages of worlds's largest metal festival in the German village of Wacken. Such as Savatage & TSO, Annihilator, Black Label Society, Dream Theater, Judas Priest, Cradle of Filth, Rob Zombie, Oomph!, Opeth, Queensrÿche, Sabaton and many more. Just as much as there was to be seen on stage, off stage the view was just as worth while, as you can see from our pictures.
Absolutely impressive on stage was ‘’The original Rock meets Classic’’ act. The musical director Mat Sinner merges the boundaries between Rock and classical music with its international high-caliber "Mat Sinner band" and the symphonic Power of Bohemian Orchestra Prague. Great musicians were invited to give a hell of a show with this orchestra. We’re talking about Joe Lynn Turner singing songs of Rainbow, Michael Kiske singing songs of Helloween and Dee Snider singing classics of Twisted Sisters and AC/DC.
