The evening commenced with The Silent Rage, who delivered a stellar performance despite the absence of their current singer (Michalis Rinakakis). Reuniting with former vocalist Steve Venardo for a one-night-only show, the band unleashed a torrent of fresh, solid, and furious power metal. Steve’s return was met with thunderous applause as he seamlessly integrated back into the fold, showcasing his vocal talent alongside the blistering guitar phrases of Nikos Siglidis and Nick Sarbanis and the monstrous bass and drums that reverberated through the venue.

As The Silent Rage left the stage, the atmosphere reached a fever pitch in anticipation of Elegy’s reunion performance. For both the band and the fans, seeing Elegy grace the stage after so many years was a deeply emotional moment. Led by the incomparable Ian Parry, Elegy enchanted the audience with their beautiful and melodic power/prog metal compositions, played with unparalleled passion and finesse. From carefully selected classics to mesmerizing instrumentals, Elegy proved why they were the perfect special guests for Angra, providing moments of pure sonic pleasure that left the audience craving more.

But the night truly belonged to Angra, the iconic Brazilian band with the Italian singer at their helm. From the explosive opening notes of “Nothing to Say” to the anthemic sing-alongs of “Carry On” and “Angel’s Cry,” Angra commanded the stage with unparalleled energy and precision. The crowd erupted in a frenzy of headbanging and singing along, swept up in the sheer power and majesty of Angra’s performance. With clear, heavy sound and uncontrollable passion, Angra’s technical skills were on full display, cementing their status as heroes of the power metal genre. And the one and only Fabio Lione was incredible, sending us to heaven with every refrain he sang! Enjoying Angra live was an immersive experience!

As the final notes of Angra’s encore faded into the night, the audience was left stunned, mesmerized, and electrified. Three excellent bands had hit the stage, delivering a night of metal power and melodies that would be remembered for years to come. It was a celebration of power and prog metal, and a reminder of the transcendent joy that live rock/metal music can bring.
