Subway To Sally

For a long time now, several years in fact, I have wanted to get acquainted with Subway To Sally's music, but somehow I have managed to miss them every time they have played at a festival I've visited, so you could say that it was about time to correct this here at Metalcamp.
For those of you who do not know them, seven-headed German band Subway To Sally could roughly be described as a folkmetal act (though it's not the whole truth), one of the many visiting the festival this year.

Since this was Subway To Sally's first time to play in Slovenia, and also considering that there were many Germans and Austrians visiting the festival, it surprised me to see that there weren't more who had shown up to see them. Oh, there were a lot of people, but it was still not as filled as it could have been.
The people who had shown up, however, were given a magnificent show by the enthusiastic Germans.
You could easily tell that they knew exactly what they were doing, and what needed to be done to give a good show. It was well-planned and well performed. Their outfits looked good, and the pyro was very well done.
The only thing that surprised me was the fact that they didn't have their own backdrop with them, so they had to make do with the Metalcamp skull instead.

There was a lot of energy in the band, and the dance- as well as headbang-friendly songs they played kept the mood of the audience high as well. Of songtitles I can bring you none I'm afraid, since they're all in German, and thus I need to know them well beforehand to recognize them. Most of the talking between songs was sadly also in German which made it hard for us non-Germans to get in on all the fun, but once in a while Eric Fish (vocals and more) would change to English so there was a little something for the rest of us as well.
