Ride The Sky were just not nearly powerful enough, quite disappointing. I especially disliked how their lead singer wore a see-through shirt, he was just a few pounds too heavy for that. Well, at least they gave us enough time to go to the bar as well as get some pretty good spots up front.

I was right in front of him, tell me about it... :D But the studio records are not that bad, come on. :) I like some songs. But they really should change their behavior on stage. I also didn't like the guitar player.. always doing some funny faces and the \m/ to the few people, including me, who were singing the songs... quite a traumatic experience it was actually, but I had Sonata afterwards to make me forget the trauma. :P
:D Well, all attention from the stage is good attention, right? ;) I've only listened to a few of their album tracks, perhaps I should give them another try. I guess I'm just expecting a lot of power metal bands' stage appearance. I blame HammerFall :)
Never seen Hammerfall live and I don't really like them. :P And I haven't been to so many gigs to expect a certain type of appearance and attitude from the bands... I just like it when they are friendly and at some point you forget you're actually seeing your favorite band and think of then as some really really close friends. Guess I can blame Sonata for that but only a little. ;)
But HammerFall are so WARRIOR! :D But I agree, friendly really helps, not to mention an impression of the band enjoying themselves and understanding that they're there to give US a good show, not the other way around :) Sonata are really good at that, so are HammerFall and actually Alice Cooper. Well, most of all his band, Alice doesn't speak that much.
