DVD Verdict: Many metal heads from all over Europe traveled to a little village called Balingen in Germany on June the 23th and 24th of 2006. Amazingly, one of the biggest metal open-air festivals took place on those dates. The organisation managed to get a diversity of well-known bands for their bill from all the legions of hard rock and heavy metal. Headling this years festival were well-established bands like FOREIGNER, STRATOVARIUS and HELLOWEEN, but the bill was deep, the music rockin' and the atmosphere of the hook.
The Bang Your Head festival is also the scene to find bands that are doing their reunion thing. This year we will be reunited with legends like ARMORED SAINT, VENGEANCE, and COUNT RAVEN. Did you grow up with ANVIL, now is your chance to see them again. But word has it that bands like Europe, Quiet Riot and L.A. Guns cancelled their plans to come to this festival this summer. Bummer, but there is still plenty cool stuff around to make your personal viewing trip worthwhile.

From the gigs at the warm-up show the nigth before to the performances at the big festival just watching these bands rock is exhausting! So, be very prepared for some comfy seating arrangements as this Bang Your Head!!! 2006 DVD set goes on for over three long hours!
