Progressive Metal

It's not often you get two stunning front women on the same bill. Bringing more than just some eye candy for the male contingent, they hold their own in a male dominated world with soaring vocals and glorious stage presents.

Stream Of Passion make their intentions clear from the beginning, they are here to inject their brand of Dutch/Mexican Metal to the assembled mass. Vocalist Marcela Bovio is a little fizzing time bomb of energy and power, her vocals are clear and precise with a twist of edgy Mexican spice. Dreadlocked Bassist Johan van Stratum is throwing his predator style locks around the stage while laying down some fat rhythms. The guitars are monstrous washing through the venue while Marcela's clean crisp vocals absorb you into the songs. With more headbanging on stage than I've seen in a long while, the crowd gives appreciative applause. So, while the harmonious guitars fill the air for the last time Stream Of Passion has left a mighty fine impression.

The second installment of this female fronted fest begins amidst a wall of smoke and strobe lighting; Simone Simons has angelic qualities both in looks and vocals. An impressive barrier of females greets her, proving just what impact she has as a role model for many of them. Mark Jansen's scream vocals pierce the filtered lights complementing Simone's glorious swathing vocals. Airing new material from their latest effort, Requiem For The Indifferent, its welcomed to the set like a returning war hero. Their symphonic scream/clean attack is furiously paced allowing the light man to get overzealous with the strobe and smoke. Simone is the vision of beauty, headbanging her long red locks to an appreciative male contingent, while the guitars scream out some frantic fat riffs. Epica have grown massively over the years in terms of performance and the quality of their albums, with performances like this they are sure to be here for quite some time to come…Simply Epic!
