just got home from both shows... the whole weekend was wicked to me- to much alcohol for god sake! ;D the setlists first: Ittervoort: blitz las malheurs black mourning valour deus LMLR patriarch ff avo _____ bullits twyncyn ambassadors
I stood in front of Jamie and I found that he was to loud. vox were kinda gone. but I did enjoy the show as always. Afterwards was this crazy disasterous party with cherry stuff (i'm kinda happy that I broke one bottle on the way if it would be 3 of them more of us would die the next day when I met with them at russelhaim all of us had a massive hang-over and as Chloe spoke to me she sounded like Lemmy from Motorhead . she was utterly destroyed and went to bed just after soundcheck. before the gig I talked a lot with Sarah (the sound engineer) about last night she said that if I want perfect sound just stand beside her- so I think you'll never see me in the front row again ;D
the setlist was meant to be that: blitz las malheurs black mourning valour deus LMLR twyncyn patriarch ff avo _____ (bullits) ambassadors (intention craft)
but Chloe was very bad with vox so they played only ambassadors for the encore. what is worth to be mentioned is that Sarah did outstanding job with covering Chloe hoarseness. there were only few lines (except when she was talking) when bad vocal condition was to be heard.
than we finished 'chating' at 4 a.m. ;D I wanted to start my return to Poland at 6 but it definitely didn't work.
Thats how it was. Perfect weekend for myself. Really enjoyed both shows.

Here is a review of the gig (using the infamous google translate): It seems natural rather clumsy and almost funny when you are organizing a mini festival on April 1 ... Yet, the organization of Rock Ittervoort not funny to do but just done something organizers more (if possible) should do. And that's when you have a mini concert or festival, if you want to organize a first look at the calendar and concert - see agenda. Originally, this fifth edition of Rock Ittervoort scheduled for April 15, 2011, including one day of the three-day festival iO pages. It was a good reason to Rock Ittervoort two weeks to put forward.
After the first three editions of this cozy mini festival in terms of visitor numbers showed an upward trend, fell against the interest in 2010. For this edition had to be out all the stops to be achieved for as many fans as possible to the mortar in Ittervoort (between Eindhoven and Roermond) River. With new and refreshing groups like The Pineapple Thief and Pure Reason Revolution was considered smart gamble on younger audiences. In this approach, the organization is only partially successful. On the one hand, there were more (and young visitors) than in 2010, on the other side, the number of just 150 paying visitors to see if in 2012 is sixth edition. Despite these vicissitudes experienced Rock Ittervoort this evening a novelty, because Sun Domingo was the third group to the line-up yet.
From Atlanta, USA based band had even played a week earlier at the Marillion Convention and was specifically for Rock Ittervoort in our country (read on the terraces of Maastricht) stick. Domestically, Sun Doningo now a reputation as a live band made up. In Europe they got the chance as support from Marillion and The Pineapple Thief profile. This evening, the group - with all due respect - as a warmup for the two subsequent performances. And in this set is Sun Domingo successful. It soon became clear that the quartet took the stage like a fish in water feels. Singer / guitarist Kyle Corbett does not only sing well but the numbers speak easily to each other and focal Edgel Groves Jr. received his laughter throughout the performance from his face. The small and energetic drumming and solid bass-Richie Torrance Daniel Gordon were the front men well under control. Three quarters of playing time who was awarded Sun Domingo, was almost completely filled with numbers from the first album "Songs for End Times. Interestingly, as the group released two live albums already out, confirming that with a real live band to do.
As their name suggests, the music sounds cheerful and sunny as quickly skipped to the public. The undersigned knew the music of Sun Domingo and tasted the pleasure thus in the soundcheck before the performance for the first acquaintance. Was responsible for the contagious It's Happening Now that during the action was brought. The music of Sun Domingo actually has little to do with progressive rock. The few tests that we heard came from a tape. Furthermore, the group with the word 'warm' seriously wronged. It will not prevent us all from Sun Domingo Netherlands definitely be hearing more.
Pure Reason Revolution
Pretty tired of traveling Pure Reason Revolution entered the British stage for performances, which still would take a half hour. The first electronic sounds and beats from Blitzkrieg put the audience right on edge. It is risky to deal with this most controversial issue of "Hammer and Anvil" to start, but it turned out great. They were initially Chloe Alper, Jon Paul Glover and Courtney who came up the stage. A few minutes later jumped Jamie Willcox, with cap and trousers at half-seven, as a devil in a box on stage with great arm swing and showmanship are brutal guitar chords in the room to breathe. This song was the same tone and put a show that followed it was difficult not to dwell. In the remainder of the action was playing a mix of songs from the last two albums "Hammer and Anvil" and "Amor Vincit Omnia".
Regularly exchanged instruments of the group and one song was played with three guitarists and drums and was the next song the bass exchanged heavy and dark electronic beats from two synthesizers. It had more eye for each group and their instruments than the room. Especially Chloe Alper was busy changing instruments and using its tiny synthesizer. After three quarters was in the room with some surprise results, the last song played and AVO announced. After several minutes the group came back on stage for the second part of the action. It was only the first song of the album "The Dark Third" but the most infamous Bright Ambassadors Of Morning. Pure Reason Revolution The energy with this sleek performance generated will perhaps half years in Ittervoort enough lighting to light up ...
The Pineapple Thief
At exactly 22.45 hours it was time for Bruce and his Soord The Pineapple Thief (remember 'The' not). In all it was clear that in this group but to a person running and that is Bruce Soord. Credit where credit is due, because what he had seen and heard this evening was a delight for eye and ear. Bruce Soord The show was supported by a tight drumming Keith Harrison, a useful Steve Kitch in his keys and a large headphones dressed funny looking Jon Sykes on bass. This trio took entirely in support of 'the great leader. " Of course numbers were notified of the latest album "Here Is Missing Someone", but The Pineapple Thief can now draw on a wide range of albums. How beautiful it started acting whatsoever with God Bless The Child by Bruce Soord the most personal album "Little Man". Concentrated played and sang Soord which he had seen seem to enjoy in this approach. Of course the music sounds like a mix of Radiohead and Porcupine Tree, but Soord knows there with great feeling and a tremendous drive his heart and soul to connect. He is beside and behind the stage a quiet and almost timid person on stage is his true nature up and he knows that nature driven across to the public.
Next song "Somewhere Here Is Missing" and "Little Man" came "Tightly Unwound" and even "Variations On A Dream" from 2003 to bid. It made this performance to a gala event for me was the confirmation that this band is too large to serve as support for the upward written Blackfield ...
For the fifth consecutive year it was a rocking evening blown into the normally quiet Ittervoort. Unfortunately, like many other musical initiatives also Rock Ittervoort under pressure and is not sure if there in 2012 is sixth edition. With the commitment of the organization, the hardworking staff and the enthusiasm of the audience, I am confident that this will be okay.
