Hard Rock Laager 2015 - Vana-Vigala, Estonia, 03-04.07.2015 13.07

It's been so long since the last time I was at Hard Rock Laager. It's, to put it bluntly, quite embarrassing. When I looked it up, it turned out that I have skipped 6 editions. It's surprisingly 2 less than I initially thought, though. The reasons have varied from Hellfests to conflicting schedules, as well as the lack of interest for any particular line-up, and laziness. In those skipped editions I only really regret missing Trail Of Tears and I didn't intend to repeat this mistake with Threshold. And being there again, it felt like a homecoming.

I seriously can't keep up with all those different sub genres in today's music. One thing is for sure though, their latest effort will either go down as the best thing they did since Dusk... And Her... (by D.T. Metal)   Read more ››
