Halfway through the day, the band Dogstar played the Mandora stage, which is the second stage of the festival. Even though the timeslot and the stage, a lot of people came out to see the band perform. For anyone who might be wondering the same, it might have to do with who their bassist is: movie star Keanu Reeves. Dogstar are a serious band, consisting of 3 friends who, according to their bio, are storytellers through their rock music and came back 23 years after releasing their debut album with the brand new effort Somewhere Between The Power Lines and Palm Trees.

Their sound, blending alternative rock with a touch of grunge, resonated well with the festival-goers. The band’s performance felt both polished and genuine. Vocalist and guitarist Bret Domrose’s vocals were strong and emotive, and his guitar work was impressive, providing a perfect balance to Reeves‘ steady basslines and Robert Mailhouse’s dynamic drumming.

ROCK AM RING 2024: Underoath Are Exceptional On Orbit Stage

It’s time to buckle up and dive headfirst into the world of one of Europe’s biggest celebrations of rock & metal music. Rock Am Ring 2024, where music enthusiasts from all walks of life unite under the banner of rock ‘n’ roll.

After a few years of absence on the European festival circuit, Underoath made their triumphant return on Rock Am Ring this weekend. Last time around, the band played on the Utopia stage, which is the main stage. This time, however, the band played the smallest stage on the festival in the early evening while Billy Talent played the main stage.

Billy Talent’s popularity in Germany is astonishing, but luckily there were still a whole bunch of people who opted to watch Underoath perform live instead. One of the major highlights was their performance of the very popular A Boy Brushed Red Living in Black and White. As soon as the opening chords rang out, the audience erupted in cheers, and the band delivered the song with a raw intensity that captured the emotional depth of the track. Spencer Chamberlain‘s vocals were particularly gripping, seamlessly transitioning between melodic lines and ferocious screams. His singing voice stood out during the entire show.

Another standout moment was the performance of Reinventing Your Exit. The crowd’s anticipation was palpable, and when the iconic intro began, it was met with an overwhelming wave of enthusiasm. The song’s infectious chorus had everyone singing along, creating a powerful connection between the band and the audience.

Underoath’s set was a well-crafted mix of their classic hits and newer material, showcasing their evolution as a band while staying true to their roots. Even if their popularity in Germany has fallen a bit behind, Underoath are exceptional live. Their earlier songs have stood the test of time and their musicianship continues to impress.

If Electric Callboy were never to leave Germany again, we wouldn’t blame them, if these are the crowds that they pull in the home country. The band drew an exceptionally large crowd to the main stage around dinner time. If you have ever been to an Electric Callboy show, you know exactly what to expect, and if this were your first Callboy show, you could not have gotten a better introduction.

From start to finish, Electric Callboy came to party. Visuals, confetti, pyro, fireworks, the band brought it all alongside the usual gimmicks they have in their arsenal. Halfway through the set, the band were joined on stage by the esteemed Babymetal, who will be playing their own show later this evening. The two bands recently joined forces for the release of RATATATA and they have taken the opportunity to perform it together while playing the same festival. The attire from the music video was worn on stage by both Electric Callboy and Babymetal and the live performance was met with an immense amount of pyro. They clearly put some effort and planning into this performance.

In summary, Electric Callboy‘s set at Rock Am Ring was a standout performance that left a lasting impression. Their ability to engage and energize a festival crowd is a testament to their talent and showmanship.
