Version Française: Molly Hatchet au Hellfest sur heavynews.fr.
After Lizzy Borden, it was time for Molly Hatchet.
This band doesn’t play metal summer festivals very often, but the cool thing about the Hellfest, is that there’s enough room for all music styles.
Two of the major Southern Rock bands were playing the Hellfest this Friday: Molly Hatchet and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Only Blackfoot was missing and the legedary trio would be complete!
Quite a few Confederate flags were already waived by the crowds when the band started with Whiskey Man. That was the beginning of the party, even if the crowds were rather drinking beer.
The sound was rather good and the songs sounded powerful. They might not be a young band, but they proved that they can rock harder than many recent bands!
Bobby Ingram was specially active and taking over the front of the stage along with singer Phil McCormack.
As the new member of the band, former Blackfoot drummer Scott Craig was adding some extra swing, as the new member of the band.
Dave Hlubek doesn’t move much on stage but his guitar gives the band this unique sound. In the meantime, bass player Tim Lindsey headbanged during most of the show.
The songs of the setlist were well chosen. American Pride of course the almighty Flirtin' With Disaster were the most unforgettable moments of this concert.
I’m sure that Molly Hatchet’s French fanbase grew after such a nice show.
Southern rock fans had to wait for a few hours before Lynyrd Skynyrd could go on stage (click here for Lynyrd Skynrd at Hellfest).
After Molly Hatchet, the next band on stage was Unisonic. Click here for some Unisonic pictures from the Hellfest.
