Daius - Ascuns

It may be true that what initially attracted me to this band was the presence of Daniel Neagoe on vocals (actually, it was Radu sending me a PM that read, "Your darling Daniel Neagoe just released a new album. Just so you know."), but with members of Mourners, E-an-na, and Descend Into Despair taking part, this is actually a festival of Romanian musicians whose other projects I have reviewed.

Woomera

Three obsessed musicians create a musical painting with colors from progressive rock and post-metal. Their live performance mesmerizes the audience with the sound of imploding mountains and the intimacy of growing trees.
Started as a school band from Ulm, Germany, Woomera produced with a lot of technical enthusiasm their first self-titled Woomera EP. The result was still unpolished, but also setting the path for the future. The collection of songs written up to that point sounded like the beginning of a progressive rock anecdote - Karnivool/, Radiohead and TesseracT enter a bar ... but the punch line was still missing. The trio gained some concert experience already at that time and played among others as support for The Hirsch Effekt, Like Lovers and Flares.
