Dimmu Borgir: Bloodstock 2014. Ronnie James Dio Stage, Bloodstock Open Air, Catton park,Derbyshire, UK. 08.08.12

 

Description

 

Again it seems Bloodstock is an impossible mission to be taped, the taper did a great job under the circumstances but technical problems from the band, blaming the crew of the festival and more forced me to rate it low, at the beginning the sound is bad before Progenies of the Great Apocalypse there was a technical problem that caused a delay, a delay over a very delayed show, you can read taperís note at the end of my review, in other songs the keyboards are too dominated and is almost the only thing you can hear, the band has been passing by many internal problems in the last years, and this is very clear with their attitude and quality of performance, less members bigger egos. Due all the technical problems their set list was reduced, on festivals if you donít go to stage on time, your time is reduced.

 

TAPERíS NOTE: When they finally started playing (over 25 minutes late) they were good. The roadies appeared to be struggling with the drum monitors and took an extended time with the soundcheck and there were also further delays during the set. Shagrath blamed the "incompetent" Bloodstock stage crew but I don't remember any other bands having problems with them that weekend. I doubt Dimmu Borgir will be invited back again as I seem to remember them cutting their headlining set short and leaving the stage very early a couple of years ago - not very professional behavior in my opinion..
