Andy Kuntz from Vanden Plas live at the PPM Fest in Mons
Bookmark and Share

Vanden Plas was the first band I saw playing at the Power Prog & Metal fest.

It was the last progressive metal that played that day.
It’s been years since the last time I saw Vanden Plas on stage, it was in 2002 in Paris.

The band played a short setlist comprising only recent songs.

Exit their classics like Rainmaker, You Fly or Soul Survives.
There were no songs from the first four albums.
We had one song from Beyond Daylight and 3 songs from each, Christ 0 and The Seraphic Clockwork.

The lights were nice, as well as the sound.

All the Vanden Plas musicians are great interpreters and very talented players.
Quite impressive to see the technical skills of Andreas Lill on drums Torsten Reichter bass, backed by Günter Werno's keyboards.

On top of it, we had Stephan Lill's melodic and fast solos, plus the great voice of singer Andy Kuntz.

But well, I have to admiit that I'm not Vanden Plas biggest fan, especially when talking about their recent records.
I prefer their most direct early songs, so, to be honest,

I spent a good part of the show waiting for them to play Rainmaker or I Can See!

This means I didn't fully enjoy the show. I was happy to see them again after all these years, but the band has changed, and I'm not really into their style anymore.

But, I guess it's just a matter of musical styles: I saw a lot of Vanden Plas fans singing the lyrics and enjoying the show... and that's what matters when going to a festival!

After this short Vanden Plas show, it was time for Rage to hit the stage.
