Deathstars – Live at Sabaton Open Air 2022-08-04

4/10

Well, this were interesting indeed. A band that’s been around for ages, but I have not dove into their discography very much, still they’ve been playing festivals I have attended and so on.  But first off, if you have a limited time to play, get your ass on stage and play. Don’t start sound checking when you’re supposed to be performing thank you.

But what is Deathstars? Rammstein light? Whiplasher Bernadotte has a very specific voice and in my opinion he is a bit misplaced from the rest of the band. Almost like he crashed Deathstars rehearsal one day just for fun and then stayed just because he wanted.

This does nothing for me. A band that is so streamlined that it sounds like a dull tinnitus. This is music that throws more fire to the fuel to those who despise hard rock and metal for being crappy.
Well two honourable mentions would be “Cyanide” and “Blitzkrieg”. On those two last songs they find the gas pedal but it’s way too late.
I leave the show with a feeling of no more for me.
