With the metal bar pressed against the chest and the high Priest a few metres away I witnessed a band long past its prime displaying their strengths and weaknesses. Sadly there was a bit of both; the old classics kicked ass and the crowd loved every second of it, the new songs showed a band at a standstill and pale, none more than the very weak: 'Death', and the rest of the songs off their latest album: 'Nostradamus' simply didn't work in a live environment.
The show was done very professionally and the energy level was high, but most of the show seemed like another day at the office for 5 guys, who just wanted to get things done and go on... and they couldn't even pass the 100 minute mark, and when the lights were turned on I stood with mixed feelings: I wanted more, and felt that they had done just enough to entertain, but not enough to give the audience a sensational feeling...
