Back on board, the first band would take the Sky Bar stage 18:20 but I was interviewing THE END OF GRACE around that time, so I missed those blue-ish rockers TRAINWRECK REMEDYS. As after the interview I lingered chatting with the TEoG boys, I also missed the “heavier harder melodic hardrock” of HAVEN, who came next on the same stage. But for BATAAR, who was the other band of this cruise that I REALLY wanted to see, I made sure to be on the front row a few minutes before they hit the Starlight Palace stage, at 20:00. They kicked off with their latest single “Riskbreaker” and for the next half hour they delivered a dazzling mixture of sounds in an enthralling performance.
