A bit late due to me being at a certain festival but here is the summary of day 3.

The forecast was rain but it turned out to be yet another sunny and warm day. I have hard to remember what bands I did see that day. Might have something to do with the amount of beer and me sleeping late on the 4th day...

The Night Flight Orchestra
They were fantastic and drew a huge crowd even though they got on stage early. 12.15 to be exact. I really like this band and they were great live.

The biggest question before the show was how will Bob Catley sound today. The answer was that he sounded really good. They played Don't Wake the Lion which is a bold move in a short festival show. I love that song so it was great to get to hear it live. The show was ok but never really caught fire.

Easy Action
This was the comeback of the festival. A band that released a now cult status album 33 years ago and hadn't played together in 30 years. They were fucking great. Tommy Nilsson, now a well known musical artist, singe/songwriter and actor in Sweden, was having fun and sang fantastic. Kee Marcello played some great solos as expected and they drew a huge crowd. The played a new song and was having a blast and hinted of doing a new album.

Axel Rudi Pell
First time seeing them and I got what I had expect. A band with a fantastic singer playing a bunch of great songs. Axel doesn't leave his spot on the right from the drums one single time in the show. I guess it's a safe spot there... I was hoping for some of the longer mid tempo songs and not just short fast ones. We got Eternal Prisoner and Mystica so I got what I wanted.

2nd time seeing them this year already and they always deliver. I'm really that much into doom but Candlemass is great. Sometime they have speed enough for running past a power metal band.

Jag Panzer
First time ever for Jag Panzer in Sweden and they had a really small crowd when they took to the stage. The crowd grew though throughout the show and the in the end it really was ok. They sounded great and played songs like Iron Eagle, Black, Shadow Thief, Chain of COmmand as well as a bunch of newer ones. I really enjoyed the show.

The drew a huge crowd and we all know what song that caused this. The crowd singing in Sound of Silence was the loudest one during this festival. I'm not that much into this band but they were pretty good.

Better than expected but worse than last time I saw them. Paul sounded great when he was "singing" and like a mix of Kermit and Zed from the Police School movies when he talked between the songs. Also Gene sang some of Pauls part in some songs. It was so obvious they were using lots of backing tracks but as long as it sounds great the audience is happy.

Day 4 will come later tonight.
