“In the end of the year 2007 Vanhelgd (Swedish for “desecrated” )was formed by Björn Andersson (drums), Jimmy Johansson (guitars, backup vocals) and Mattias Frisk (guitars vocals). The intention was to play dark, blood soaked death metal in the vein of the old masters.”
VANHELGD always deliver!!

Typiska Strand ljus. Lite i den snyggare skalan dock. Giget i sig var fantastiskt bra och jag fick min vinyl. Bra kväll.
FIRESPAWN destroyed!! It won´t be much heavier and more crushing than this! I even filmed one of the songs, but so far my small piece of shit cam won´t co-operate and let med download the clip. But I will eventually outsmart the bloody gadget:/ Found a clip made by max westman, tho, so I share that one for now.
The new album “The Reprobate” will be released in April!
“The brainchild of Entombed AD bassist Victor Brandt and Necrophobic bassist Alex Friberg, this latest meeting of malevolent minds has conjured one of the most startling and impressive metal albums of 2015, Shadow Realms. A tour de force of pulverising but crafted death metal grandeur, it couldn’t be further away from all those archetypal half-arsed side-projects and sounds like the beginning of something genuinely exciting.”

HORNA from Finland. No bullshit!
“Through-out the years the lyrics of Horna ventured from harsh anti-christian hatred, paganism and fairytales to severe exaltations of the occult, the mysteries of the dark side of mankind and Satanism – from youthful outbursts of anger to ever more maturing inner enlightenment.”

Great show again by the Irishmen! Haven´t seen them for a couple of years now and no totally new recorded studio stuff since the last time at Blastfest, but they did release a live from the 2015 edition of Bang Your Head in Germany. Streaming here!
REVEAL are back for sure!!! Freaking beautiful intense show! Ester S. volunteered us to take down the smashed mirrors after the show, so we spent some time on the stage trying not to slash our veins.
We also got some pieces of left over fence from the security guys and built ourselves a photopit. It kinda worked but at some point the mid part of it had moved closer and closer to the stage and E.S. got trapped in the other end for the rest of the show xD We didn´t want to disturb the front row crowd, tho, and made the adjustments after.
The brand new “Cadmium” single (7″ vinyl Limited to 300 copies) was for sale at the venue. B side is a Saints cover:))
Smockat på En Arena. Vilket btw har blivit ännu mera ombyggt under sommaren! Scenen är flyttad och ljudet är fantastiskt!! Och det är inte ens helt färdigt ännu. Så vad ni en tror/minns om stället så stämmer det inte om ni inte varit där på ett tag! Jag har ju iofs trivts bra där ändå dom senaste åren pga Adde och Luciferian Society som har arrat en hel del superbra gigs.
Switchblade visste jag att skulle göra bra ifrån sig. Ett av favoritbanden utanför extremmetallen och dom spelar inte för ofta här i krokarna. Definitivt bästa valet som andra band för den här kvällen! När det kom till Sunn O))) hade jag rensat bort alla förutbestämda ideer (vilka jag eg inte ens hade. Definitvt ingen expert på bandet ifråga) och förväntningar om hur det ev kunde bli, vad som skulle hända och framförallt vad jag skulle tycka om det. Så…kvällen blev helt super från början tills jag var tvungen att dra lite i förtid. Svårare att ta sig till landet på vardagkvällar:/ I vilket fall min Sunn O))) experience var svår att beskriva och överväldigande. Önskar att det fanns en bra recension från kvällen men har inte sett nån så googla så hittar ni lite blandad kompott som kan beskriva känslan. Och missa inte nästa tillfälle! Har ett gäng bilder på Switchblade men typ inget vettigt på Sunn O))) Såg tidigare en del av bandets önskemål ang foto och höll mig till det även fast jag aldrig skrev på nått. Så några få bilder från mixerbordet 45 min in i spelningen. Och då var man ju redan inne i nånslags konstig alternativ värld så dög ingenting till ändå:)
The second of the P.S.O.A. bands which I had an “agreement” with. Long time friends, all time favourites with another super show and complete with the satanic hellfires signed by P.
Just that someone decided to cut the show off before the extra songs in the end and with still 7 mins of stage time. What was up with that? As far as I know, the P.S.O.A. crew don´t fuck up. It´s all about German quality and precision, so what the hell happened? When the band was coming back for the extras, the drums were already rolling out and stuff being unplugged. And me who (with awesome help from Majk, the official PSOA shooter. Great guy) climbed up in the sound tower to witness the end. Narrow ladder, very steep, very high. For me who´s genuinly afraid of hights, it was totally death defying so shut up!!
And without the last two songs, no bombastic ending in fire with P. finally burning down the whole thing. Ok, I can see the pros of it…:)
But even without the last two, it was an awesome gig! But as great as they are on the big open air stages, I can´t wait to see them at Black Harvest in October!
This is how to do it! Freaking intense!! Heljarmaðr letting go of the guitar and just go berserk all over the stage. Grim Vindkall (DOMGÅRD etc, live bass) and M (SPAZMOSITY, live guitar) are such perfect additions to the band, so now we finally got a proper display of what an awesome band GRÀ really is! Although Heljarmaðr is keeping busy as the vocalist in DARK FUNERAL, these guys should really go for a proper tour. Soon! Book them!! Hangman´s nooses for everyone!!!;)) The crowd were also everything you could wish for, so it was really THE Grande Finale for this fantastic event. Thanks to all the bands, Adrian @ LS and the Myrheimr´s!
Tried to collect the setlist on Spotify but didn´t find “Klagan och längtan”. So I smoothly replaced it with “Farväl”, my all time favourite;) Works for me. You find it somewhere below.

I love IXXI. They always had great performances when I´ve seen them live and this time was no exeption. The frontman, Outlaw also runs Luciferian Society and was responsible for this fantastic evening with five so specific and different bands with their own kind of great qualities. Often that many bands are at least a couple too many, but not this time. It was interesting from beginning to the very end. Also the best metal DJ´s in town were there so it was perfect even in between the live performances. Good stuff only when they hit the decks! Hail Myrkheimr´s!!:)) One of the happy nights for sure!:))
IXXI Members: Outlaw (Vocals), Acerbus (Guitar), Titan (Guitar), Core (Bass), Thunder (Drums)
I thought they were great the first time I saw them at the small Uppsala festival a couple of years ago but now they were amazing! Can´t wait to see them at Mörkaste Småland in September!! Also they co-operate with the great Nebiros (MALIGN, ex-OFERMOD), one of the greatest bm voices on this planet.
SATURNIAN MIST has been around for about 10 years but this was the first time I saw them live (or heard their music). So another surprise band for this evening. Really good show by the Finnish guys! Overloads of energy:) Lots of drums!!
Members: fra. Zetekh (vox, perc), fra. Ptahaz (gtr), fra. Chaoswind (gtr), fra. Macabrum (bass), fra. Sota (perc), fra. Kult (perc), fra. Vile (drums)
Great band!! Fantastic live! Will definitely see them again somewhere.
