What happened twice - will happen again. At least according to what we observed, the darkness recurrence has been awaited even in our not that sunny parts. So how it was?

Strictly according to the schedule, and you know how hard it actually is, especially when the audience wants some more like in case with KRUK, but all the bands were implacable. Sure they were - having 6 bands in the lineup! But this wasn't the only remarkable feature of the evening.

The fest has been opened by the guests from Lithuania called SISYPHEAN, who just silently appeared on stage and wrapped the club into their incessant as autumn melancholy tracks. Who knows, maybe the guys managed to get the real Dementor for vocals. At least it looked like this. Black metal with a kind of old-school touch, kissed in the forehead by the muse of doom, has been well accepted by the audience, which changed the role of careful contemplation from afar for partying at the stage after a couple of songs. Silent communication between musicians and spectators like fists raised upwards except for the similar reaction of the crowd seemed to evoke a kind of awkwardness to break the sacred silence even with applause. At first it looked like sometimes even excessive love for guitar effects was meant as an attribute of the proper atmosphere created by more than scant lighting. But later it turned out that one's ears buzzed during everyone's set, except for MEDICO PESTE, I guess. Still EXTRAVAGANZA found a great usage for it and arranged a two minutes entrancement, but we'll talk about it later.

Then the stage was taken by the band with a rock'n'roll sound - VERWÜSTUNG. From the entire lineup they were the most positive ones, however weird it might sound in terms of this particular fest. However it's not that definite: guys speeded up, became heavier and 'crushed' the dance floor, knocking human bodies together in slam like the unipolar magnets. As you've already got, VERWÜSTUNG means rocking hard. But in a pretty diverse way, just like the emotional spectrum of the one with bipolar disorder. Dance, guys!

I'd like to, very much would like to single out EXTRAVAGANZA. They took the stage after stirring VERWÜSTUNG as silently, as they left it afterwards. Metaphorically grew up like psychedelic mushrooms after the rain of blood. Brugge club has been covered (despite it seemed impossible) with a deeper velvet darkness and the Lithuanians guided the spectators through the foggy thicket with parallel paths following predictable turns. Rare light rays cut the space like the souls, which had been lost in these rhythmic labyrinths and tried to light the way out with small electric torches. The vocals run across the forest now like the slight rustle, now groaning like echoes from within. It felt like this. During the setlist of EXTRAVAGANZA you feel like being in this thicket completely lost in time. What was it? It doesn't matter, what does - the way how it was...

After a certain reboot KRUK appeared on stage and here it goes! Sand or ashes has been thrown up, and the dance floor was close to crack under the amount of people flooding it. Thick sound and a large amount of accumulated static electricity in the club evoked a wave of headbanging and regular cheers of approval. Thus the favourite of the evening has been elected. Temperature increased and a row of topless guys occurred, who after a friendly collective headbanging arranged the same friendly still severe slam. The audience was cheering loud and didn't want to let the musicians go, but instead of playing an encore KRUK gave the warm words about unity. Well, that will do.

BLACKDEATH was the most canonical band in terms of appearance: leather, spikes and the rest of attributes one thinks of hearing about black metal. The entourage was just right as well. Pretty fast and aggressive, they remained the same way all setlist long, which made the audience seemingly tired. So people changed one another on the dance floor, migrating to the bar and some other directions. In general plus into the guys' karma for being energetic. If they add some dynamics, it will be easier to hold the attention of the audience.

The evening was closed by psychedelic and melodic MEDICO PESTE. There were no doubts left about the fact that musicians were awaited, when with the first chords the cheering crowd flooded the dance floor again.

The headliners without any foreword immersed us into phantasmagoria of the occult images created by the BFV/INSIDE FLESH team as visual interpretation of the band's material. MEDICO PESTE seemed to have voluntary taken the secondary part hiding behind the video; still in reality they acted like Pied Piper of Hamelin, changing the tempo and rhythm as fast as they liked staying in the shadows, thus blurring the tracks' borders and transforming the perception of the visions at the screen. Swampy guitars flowed down the walls of the cracked consciousness, eliminating the borders between reality and action on stage. Let the strings go and give in to the flow, you won't drown. Full immersion.
