Raketkanon in Hamburg (Astra Stube), 23.04.15

raketkanon are a Belgian sludge band with post-rock and metal influences. Their songs are powerful just as their live show - you never know what will happen when you see them live tho because the guys are pretty crazy. Pieter-Paul sings mostly in a made-up language.
When I finally saw them in Hamburg after two years of waiting they played in front of 10 people. The venue is tiny anyway so it felt like a living room gig, the band adding to that atmosphere through giving everyone a handshake before and after the show and taking a pee break. The whole gig was insane and insanely good - I really can’t wait to see them again soon, one of the best live bands out there.
