Second rehearsal Hungary

Very mixed feelings for me on this one. I was just thinking that I'm still warming up to this song despite the last extremely loud part with the grunting and the choir getting lost. Well, the last thing was not noticed so much in the hall, the first thing is still there, I will never like it I think.. but the band is very convincing and confident on stage and put on a great show. The biggest 'but' for me now after this rehearsal is the massive amount of pyros that at some point more look like a celebration and don't go well with the emotional message of the song..

Hungary first rehearsal

Hungary's the last country to rehearse before the lunch break. The lead singer, , seems to have issues with his sound yet as he regularly points at his ear pieces.

The band makes great use of the stage with both bridges and the front catwalk included. The lighting is mostly yellow / gold and the staging is as expected, just the band on stage, no-nonsense. At the instrumental part one of the guitarists does some crowd surfing, which is not always caught on camera.

Unfortunately - but expected as well - the choir at the last chorus gets lost. Quite a good reaction in the press hall for this rehearsal, personally I'm still not sure what to really think as the song is not my genre at all.
