finnish bands are partial to tour through Germany when it's getting
dark and cold. To affirm this suggestion, Lovex came back for
some shows, introducing their newest album Pretend Or Surrender to the
After the guys
from White Flame, who were supporting Lovex left the stage at about
8.30 pm, Marko, the band's tourmanager and roadie walked on the stage
to do the compulsive soundcheck.
The tension was
high, when the lights went out and the six guys entered the stage,
accompanied by the intro from their opening song "If she's near". Loud
screaming filled the little club when the first accords grew louder and
leader Theon gave his best to catch the crowd within the first seconds.
A well known
Lovex-Oldie called Bleeding followed as well as one of the new albums
up-tempo numbers "Belonging To No One", before Theon introduced the
fourth song of the evening, "My Isolation" with the words "We haven't
played it for some time but it's a real great song!".
older song with hard drum intro, played by the band's youngster Julian
followed and Theon used the chance to make the audience clap their
hands together, just the way the bass drum filled the venue.
Munich was the
last gig from this tour and because of this Lovex's frontman wanted to
see how much the audience can party, when he introduced "Divine
Insanity" the same named song from their last album. The mostly by
girls filled crowd jumped and screamed just as much as possible and
sang along with the band to prove how much they're waiting for this
evening and you could clearly see how much it made the band happy.
Anymore" followed and as soon as the last tunes faded away, the lights
went out and a slim shine lightened Theons spot on the stage, who was
taking his acoustic guitar, before he announced Tenacious D's "Fuck Her
Gently" with the words "This is for all the beautiful ladies tonight!"
The fans seemed to be very surprised, that Theon performed this song,
was it some kind of insider among the fans long time before.
Some more songs
like an half-acoustic version of Turn, Writings On The Wall or the
Backstreet Boys Cover Larger Than Life followed. It was time for Theons
Outing as a fan from this band, when he called them the best band in
the world, before everyone sang along with them.
"Bullet For The
Pain", one of the most popular Lovex songs from their debut album
"Divine Insanity" was one of the last ones on this evening. "It's so
hot in here and before we start to take of all our clothes we play our
last songs!". With this Theon announced the vorerst??? last song on the
setlist, "Take A Shot!". After a short "Thank You!" the six guys from
Tampere left the stage, accompanied by the fan's "WE WANT MORE!"
Some moments passed by, till they returned onto the stage.
The girls melted
away when the band started to play one of their greatest ballads on the
new album, called "Time And Time Again" and you could feel how much
heart singer Theon puts into his lyrics. "Ordinary Day" followed and
with their number one single "Guardian Angel" the guys really finished
their show and left the stage under frenetic applause.
Looking back you
can say that this was a great evening and Lovex showed once more that
they know how to conquer the German fans. Surprised by the fact of how
much they grew within one year we can be excited about their next
masterpiece and look forward on their next tour.
