Baroeg Open Air is the only Dutch free festival with a variety of great performances at THREE (!) stages. There is music for everyone's taste, from metal to electronic music. The visitors that attended this festival were mostly fans of the two big headliners VADER and VENOM Inc. It’s not the first time, nor the last, that Vader touched the Dutch soil. Poland’s death metal giants Vader took the stage right after the spectacular performance of the RYKERS. They showed why they are still a force to be reckoned within the extreme metal world. The guitars are clear and distinct, the drums are tight and powerful. The bass has a characteristic thunder sound. The vocal performance of Piotr is well executed and, again, straight death metal!
The headliner Venom Inc. did certainly not dissapoint! With a great clarity and unbelievable volume, these veterans performed with precision and high energy. They are currently touring in Europe with Vader. What to expect is a full and classical Venom set, followed by a brand new album. We have high expectations of this album. No doubt it will be venomously brutal and mindblowing! Baroeg Open Air was the first show of this tour. We were fortunate to witness such great bands at this festival and for free. Therefore…. Horns up to all the volunteers for working their asses off. Without them, there was no BOA 2015!
