Burning Witches – Live at Sabaton Open Air 2022-08-05

9/10

Well then ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls and everyone around Lugnet. That’s it.Now you can shut down the festival for this year and try to crawl back for a return in 2023.

How can anything possibly beat this thrash metal monster under the name  Burning Witches. For me it was one of the most anticipated gigs and did not fail. Some small issue with the microphone early on but that didn’t stop them from totally nailing Lugnet to the ground. The superlatives for the band and show is just not enough. The feeling of “how could I have missed this”, I don’t know, a bullet train is maybe close enough to describe what I just witnessed.  This must be the future of thrash metal otherwise something is very wrong. Alissa White Gluss is up for a challenge as a front woman standing next to Laura Goldemund

“We stand as one” seem to be the call to arms song. They even manage to bring up a mosh pit so there are people here who as I enjoyed the show quite a lot.

Thanks girls for saving and ending the festivals. I will be back in the crowd once you come back to Sweden.
