Our first edition of Epic Metal Fest has been a huge success! What an honor it has been to share the stage with great bands for whom we all have huge respect.
It was a beautiful, but also kind of strange feeling to be walking around on our own festival. I had some time to spare to watch Delain and Moonspell rock. I loved seeing 'Full Moon Madness' again. One of my all time favorite songs. I used to listen to that particular song on repeat for a long time.
It's great that we will be sharing the stages during our North American Tour in January. More opportunities for me to see them live and hang out with them. They are such nice people!
The day was packed with meetings and I also had to retreat for a bit to keep my energy for our 2 hour show. Besides that I had a horrible throat infection. Two days before the show I had no voice and was working on the demo tracks in the Sandlane Studio together with Mark, Sascha, and Joost. They had to sing for me because I wanted to give my voice a rest and didn't want to risk not being able to sing on EMF.
I can say that I am already looking forward to our second edition which will be announced soon – I hope, I believe. ;)
I enjoyed hanging out backstage with Charlotte, Derrick, Burton, and Fernando. I didn't get to talk to everybody unfortunately.
Thanks to all the awesome bands that rocked with us! Thanks to all the fans that joined us for the first edition of EMF!
