The Roadhouse at the > Zwarte Cross Festival offers the stage to modern hard rock in the setting of a barn.
The first band we saw performing here, at the Friday of this Edition of the Zwarte Cross, was Lookapony from The Netherlands who treated the fresh audience to a mixture of rock and roll and garage pop. King Hiss from Belgium the played a mixture of melodic metal, hard rock, and stoner rock with hardcore.
Because of a short but heavy rainfall we sought shelter elsewhere on the festival premises and therefore unfortunately missed the Swedish band The Kendolls.
After the shower we returned to the barn to listen to the Dutch hard rock band Black Bone, who had attracted a huge numbe of fans. Psychedelic Rock was then served to us by The Vintage Caravan from Iceland.
Unknown to the Dutch audience there was not a big crowd to cheer them, but those not present had made a big mistake. This band is very worth listening to. They have just been signed by Nuclear Blast, the label that is known to have a nose for highly potential metal bands.
We left the Roadhouse after having enjoyed a dose of hard rock by Fleddy Melculy from Belgium, together with an enthusiastic crowd in the packed venue.
