CELTIC FROST Live at BAD BONN KILBI Festival, June 8th 2007
This was another of those concerts where only one band was of interest. And as CELTIC FROST were only due on stage at 1.15am, we decided to only leave our lair at 9pm...
Arrived in Düdingen shortly after 11pm, only to be greeted by a large SOLD OUT sign - fuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tried all the usual pleading with security, etc, but no joy. Returned to the car for a beer and to suss out what to do. Mrs SOV sees a lady leaving the festival, and offers to buy her ticket-armband from her, she agrees, cool!! The next car that is departing is flagged down, and he also agrees to give me his ticket. OK, we are in - phew!
Some beers, and straight down to the middle of the front row. As this was the fifth time we were gonna see the mighty CELTIC FROST in little over a year, we knew we were in for another great performance! CF arrive onstage later than planned, to a great reception from the crowd. MARTIN and V SANTURA join the rest of us in freaking through pretty much the whole show. The sound quality was excellent and heavy! The setlist was as follows:
TOTENGOTT - Intro
PROCREATION OF THE WICKED
VISIONS OF MORTALITY
CIRCLE OF THE TYRANTS
DAWN OF MEGGIDO
SORROWS OF THE MOON
INTO THE CRYPTS OF RAYS
Mrs SOV and myself both got a drumstick from FRANCO at the end, and I also got a plectrum from MARTIN, as well as a set list from the roadie. Cool!! Had a quick talk to FRANCO after the show, a very cool Dude! And had a beer with the awesome MARTIN, our old friend MIKE from DESTRUCTION, and the legendary REDFISH. Left for home at approx 4am. Brilliant concert, and a real cool evening overall.
