subject Concert Review - Heaven & Hell - Bang Your Head in Balingen, Germany June 22, 2007


I'm stationed in the Army in Germany. I saw Black Sabbath for the first time in Dortmund, Germany in June 2005. Ozzy sang really good that evening, but I've seen DIO several times in Germany.  But when I heard about Heaven and Hell touring, I went ordered my ticket for the Bang Your Head Festival in February.  I also bought another ticket for the concert in Offenbach, Germany which was last week. They sounded better at the Festival than in Offenbach, but it was also good. Vinnie Appice's solo was great, I liked when he would pull down on his drums. Iommi had a great solo on the intro to "Die Young". Geezer sounded great on Heaven and Hell. I think they all sounded perfect. I really enjoyed "Die Young", "Falling off the Edge of the World", "Children of the Sea" , "Shadow of the Wind" and "Heaven and Hell". I was disappointed because "The Devil Cried" and "Ear in the Wall" did not get played. I wish they would have added "Country Girl". Maybe the next tour. Oh well, it was still one of the best concerts that I ever seen. I hope they will tour again with this line up.  Long live Rock and Roll!

subject HH Setlist at Grasspop, Dessel (Belgium), June 22

What to say about the performance? It was brilliant just as I expected. Just too short = only one hour! At 18 h.

It was raining cats and dogs during their part show. But people stayed and enjoyed. Although, people were not clearly HH audience. They came to see rather Iron Maiden and Korn and some other syupid stuff. But Sabbath’s sound was thousand times better than that of Iron Maiden’s or Korn’s, the former spoiling their show with too many guitars that cannot be mixed clear and the latter with too many instruments.

HH had some sound problems, probably Geezer’s bass echo (or what ever) was too strong. Guys including Tony were smiling during whole performance. Dio tapped Geezer on the nose when he played a wrong note during Heaven and Hell: did not go correctly to the bridge part once, ay ay ay.

But the HH was my reason to pay 70 euro for tickets, to drive 250 km to the festival and to got totally wet under open sky. Fantastic.
