Eluveitie + Epica in Zlin

16. 11. 2015


Druhým októbrovým koncertom, ktorý sme navštívili bola spojená show dvoch populárnych metalových kapiel. Mnohopočetní folk metaloví miláčikovia Eluveitie a úspešná symphonic metalová Epica, o ktorej ste už na mojom blogu iste čítali, si spolu zahrali v Zlínskej hale Euronics.

The second concert we attended in October was a joint show of two popular metal bands. The multiple folk metal sweethearts of Eluveitie and the successful symphonic metal Epica (which I bet you already know from my previous posts) have joined their forces on this tour and played together at the Euronics hall in Zlin. 

Prekapelou týmto dvom rovnocenným zostavám boli melodickí Švédi Scar Symmetry. Ich koncert sme bohužiaľ už nestihli, no aspoň sme si mohli obzrieť miesto konania show. Do Zlína sme zvyčajne chodievali priamo do Masters of Rock Café, no pri tomto turné si organizátori správne uvedomili, že fanúšikov Epicy a Eluveitie do takýchto priestorov už nezmestia. Hala Euronics bola pre mňa príjemným prekvapením. Skvelé umiestnenie s dostatkom parkovacích miest, šatňa, možnosť sedenia s krásnym výhľadom bez príplatku a rozumne rozmiestnené pivné stánky. Nikto sa nedusil a bolo dosť priestoru aj na tancovanie J

The supporting act for this balanced line-up was the melodic Swedish band Scar Symmetry. Unfortunately, we haven‘t managed to get to the place in time to see their show. At least we had a chance to explore the venue. We usually went to see bands performing at Masters of Rock Café, however, when this tour was concerned, the organizers have realized correctly that it simply wouldn’t be possible to cram the fans of both Epica and Eluveitie into the smaller Café. Euronics hall surprised me very much in a positive way. It had great location with a lot of parking space, cloakroom, possibility to sit down having a great view with no extra fees and reasonably situated beer stands. Nobody was smothered with bad air and there was enough space even for dancingJ.









Eluveitie odštartovali svoj koncert na sekundu presne a o 20:00 sa už z reproduktorov ozývalo intro Origins. Naposledy som ich videla pred štyrmi rokmi, odkedy prešla zostava aj nejednou personálnou zmenou. Zmenil sa aj charakter koncertov , keďže do nich začlenili akustickú časť, ktorá ma osobne veľmi potešila. Všetko sa na chvíľu zastavilo a fanúšikovia si mohli okrem tradičných melódií vychutnať aj Brictom či Memento. Setlist kapely bol skvele zložený z nových aj starších vecí a môjmu uchu ulahodil viac než dosť (hlavne Omnos, Quoth the Raven, Alesia, či Slanias Song). Chýbali však tvrdšie piesne ako Havoc či Helvetios.


Eluveitie kicked off their show right on time and at 20:00 the intro Origins already played from the speakers. The last time I saw them performing was four years ago and since then also the band‘s line-up has changed. But it wasn’t only that. The character of their show has changed as well because they have incorporated an acoustic part into their set what pleased me immensely. Everything stopped for a while and the fans could enjoy some traditional music and Eluveitie’s Brictom or Memento. The setlist was very well composed from older and newer stuff and was easy on my ears (mainly Omnos, Quoth the Raven, Alesia, or Slanias Song).  Unfortunately, some popular heavy songs like Havoc or Helvetios weren’t performed.









Nažhavené publikum po skončení folk metalového bláznenia nedočkavo očakávalo nástup krásavice Simone Simons a holandsko-belgickej Epicy. Od ich prvej návštevy v Českej republike v roku 2007 som sa bola na ich koncert pozrieť už ôsmy krát, a vôbec som nemala pocit, že sa nudím. Kapela s novým albumom The Quantum Enigma predstavila skvelú a hlavne dynamickú show. Neustále poskakujúci, či headbangujúci gitaristi zabávali publikum takmer dve hodiny a celý koncert tak mal neskutočne rýchly spád. Darmo, keď sa človek zabáva aj čas letí neskutočne rýchlo...

When the folk metal madness was over, the excited crowd was eagerly expecting the beauty of the band Simone Simons and her Dutch-Belgian fellow members of Epica. Since their first visit to Czech Republic in 2007, this was the eighth show I attended and I wasn‘t bored at all. The new album The Quantum Enigma was presented with an awesome and a very dynamic show. The band was jumping all around the stage, headbanging and entertaining the crowd for almost two hours and the concert was therefore very fast paced. When you’re having a great time, the time really flies, doesn’t it?
