Italian news blog Musica Metal has uploaded photos from the second day of the two-day Evolution festival, which was held July 11-12 in Milano, Italy. Pictures of OPETH, GAMMA RAY, DEATH ANGEL and PAIN OF SALVATION can be found at this location.

As previously reported, IN FLAMES' headlining performance at the festival had to be cancelled due to a severe hailstorm that damaged part of the band's equipment. Photos of the hail, which Musica Metal describes "as big as a fist," are available on the above-listed page; a short video was uploaded on YouTube and can be seen below.

Musica Metal reports that the storm came out of nowhere, whereas the whole afternoon had been hot and sunny, with bands joking about the Italian heat. The day's attendance was twice as high as that on the first day of the festival, which was reported to be smaller than expected.
