The first band to play tonight is the Japanese band Liv Moon, centered around Akane Liv the female vocalist born in Sweden, and strongly inspired by Nightwish. Despite being formed very recently in 2009, the band quickly encountered success. Akane sings in Japanese with an amazing clear voice, which remains perfect even when reaching the highest pitches. The sound is enormous and well balanced, as it will be for all the other bands. The band extensively uses keyboards, samples, well executed soli and Akane’s symphonic voice.
Except for a temporary problem launching a song, and a recurrent distorted noise, their set was seamless and worthy of such a crowd.
