Danko Jones: Live At Wacken

Album Review

Three Canadians and a shitload of Germans rock out

If you want to know how a fiery rock’n’roll trio from Toronto ended up being insanely popular with diehard metalheads, Live At Wacken provides compelling evidence.

Danko Jones could easily have focused their energy on conquering cooler cultural enclaves, but as an obsessive metal fan himself, Wacken clearly seemed like a more worthwhile challenge. Smartly shot and sonically monstrous, this band’s third appearance at Germany’s metallic epicentre sees them winning over the main stage crowd with relentless Uzi-blasts of short, sharp and instantly memorable anthems.
