Default The Biggest Review Ever - Part 1 - Cologne !

this is part 1 of our inner sanctum 2007 reviews

5 or more will follow... still making plans to join the astoria - weīll see...

remark: the pictures are watermarked to prevent that some brainless online-magazine-shitters falsely take all the credit

when someone wants to get them in original size and quality without watermark - just give me a pm

spammers and one-post-members wouldnīt get them anyway

you can read this little thread as a pre-story of what will come:

here is the outer sanctum:



one picture from the rear:



and one from the front:



okay, it was not the saxondome lol. richard was well impressed by the size and view of that historical building. we went around and made some nice shots after visiting the dome treasure chamber which richard will show his family to prove that there were other things around than just crazy germans, warsteiner and saxongigs.

after that we were heading to a bistro to get a base for the next beers. then off to the venue. we arrived far too early as always and so we opened the windows as well as the trunk and while the amplification did its best to rock the neighbours we enjoyed the beer-support out of the trunk. then it was time to stand in the queue:



we met doug phoning outside and said: "welcome back to germany" as it was the first gig here on this tour. we asked him if he was looking for a ticket but he said he donīt need one

now at 7:25 rose tattoo began the show. we liked this fast oldschool rockīnīroll songs - they really rocked! i made some pictures of them in oberhausen so stay tuned.

at about 8:15 plasterman climbed on the stage and gave their best to make a good show but that what iīve heard didnīt make my feet stamp even a little bit. all the songs began quite good but 10 - 20 seconds later it was over. they changed the speed and the rhythm many times in their songs so that i asked myself what they lost there - the crowd came for heavy metal. the voice of the singer was far to low - i didnīt understand a word of what he sung...

finally the show began at 9:30. jumping ! banging ! screaming ! bumping ! a girl in the back got crazy even before the show. she screamed like she had the first multi-orgasm in her life. maybe some day she will get used to it. after 20 minutes she wasnīt seen any more - i think that was too much for her.

now the saxon five conquered the stage and they conquered the masses in an unbelievable speed and power. the moshing in the middle was very powerful and - painful. we had to cover northernlady and did our very best to push them back into the witchkettle again. they moshed nearly about the whole show so there was a really crazy and powerful atmosphere in the hall. unbelievable. i hadnīt experienced that before so powerful.





they played mostly very powerful songs as you can see at the setlist at the end so they took us everything we fucking got.

nigel was only seen at the end of the gig because his drumkit is well equipped - but what everyone can see was his little representative - the little skull at the front.



in the beginning biff told us that they have a new cd/dvd out. i forgot the title. hmmmmmm maybe one day i will buy it.

the sound was very good - we made sure to have enuff earplugs before we started to make sure that we can enjoy some more gigs without going to the kitchen because the electric water jug was always piping...

they played some medleys - that was something new - we really enjoyed them





after the show i got a first picture of the stagetruck:



after the show we went to the merchandiser to see if thereīs something new to get. we let a lot of money there... we were looking for a long time for new belts and we found what our hearts demanded. see it in the saxonstuff-thread:
