I wish! I only had my camera-phone with me, so nothing great from me photowise (but I guarantee there's some clips and photos soon to come from folks who went; the place was packed!). I was lucky enough to go to the meet and greet/sound check, I got to have a far-too-short chat with Matias about his wicked-lookin' axes but alas, no photos of 'em!

Darker Half was pretty good, I thought; first time I'd seen 'em and they had some pretty good riffs. Lots of good harmonized leads going on. Was like listening to Anthrax and Iron Maiden at the same time; clear there were some influences there.

Eyefear was, well, Eyefear. Badass set, epic performance! And of course, seeing Kosta's Caparisons in use is always cool!

Stratovarius? All I can say is "holy crap". Above and beyond, heh, was far better than I'd expected full well knowing how good they are. The place was roaring by the end of it. I seriously wished I had a camera on me at the time but any moments taking my eyes off of the stage and I think I would've regretted it! :p

Edit: I tell a lie! I -have- photos, only that they are horrible quality ;p

Damn right! I was about to ask him more about it when I got cut off. Business is business, after all, it was a meet-greet but they did have stuff to do and a gig to prepare for. Nice guy to talk to though! Took in the backplate of my ESP M-II and he was kind enough to sign it. ^.^

Hopefully this works. My ESP M-II Backplate (I wasn't able to get a photo at the time) and a couple shots of their soundcheck, playing Eagleheart.

Excuse the shite photography

My phone somehow managed to lose the other photos, including the one I managed to get with my friend and I with the band (They did some group shots, kind of 'em!). They had another photographer with 'em, so if I can get one from her camera at some point, maybe put it up here.

That said, EYEFEAR and Darker Half were f**king wicked, too. Wasn't just Stratovarius' night, that's for damn sure.

Wow they managed to make the Billboard stage look tiny somehow.

Nah, I was standing at a slight angle each time, it was actually pretty broad, just that the backline stuff seemed fairly close. First time there so, not sure how far forward they have that stuff ^^;
