I can´t really understand why I didn´t take more (and more serious) video while in Japan…just some very few, really sucky clips which I tried to glue together. Probably they´re just fun for us but I´ll share with you anyway:) Got one more, just have to send it on YouTube. The first clip was over 8 minutes but YouTube cut it in half!!!!! Don´t know why…So you miss the Slayer finale. Some from the backstage bar with the labelguys (Spiritual Beast) and the Brasilian band Hibria, our friends Takashi & Miho from Hiroshima and some (short) clips of Rob Zombie & Slayer (live that is..).
The second clip is on a guy who played his guitar near the station when we left the festival. He was really cool!:)

Thursday 22nd of october – a full day for Metallic Kitty with interviews, signingsession & stuff. I did what any good friend would do and left her completely alone early in the morning and went for a photowalk. Well…she was taking a 2hr bath anyway, so…;)) I came back about 3PM and the interviews were still going on at the hotel. A couple of hours later we all left for the Burrn! Magazine headquarters for the last interview of the day. A really good one, I think! The guy who did the interview was really serious and interested, the interpreter did a great job and Kitty came up with some good thoughts. Hope we can get the interview translated by somebody when it´s printed…? Me and Akira had an important role as quiet sidekicks;) Next stop was the signingsession at Disk Union.
Lots of fun people and even our friend Yayoi found her way to the shop. It was good to see her again:) Also saw a couple of familiar faces from Loud Park. Everything worked out perfectly and after some meet & greet with fans outside the shop, we went for some dinner with Mats & Akira (Spiritual Beast). They took us to this Izakaya where we got our own booth, lots of great food, some beer and some really clever (?;)) conversations. Kitty doesn´t drink any alcohol, but after a couple bottles of water, she really had it going;) Later we went to this rock club, owned by some friends of Mats & Akira. We also met Yayoi on the way, so she tagged along.
We had a great time with everybody. Too bad we had to catch an early train next morning, so we took the last train to Akihabara (the subway didn´t run anymore) and took the cab back to the hotel.
We miss you a lot, guys!! Next time we won´t book in any trips for the day after;)
Earlier when my friend Takashi asked if he would buy us some tickets to the Loud Park festival, we said no. It was quite expensive, most of the bands play in Sweden all the time (except ROB ZOMBIE!!) and most of all, we thought we had far too little time to spend in Tokyo anyway, so a whole day on a festival…naaahhhh. Why we even discussed it, was mostly because we thought it would be so cool to go to a Japanese festival with a JAPANESE audience:) Then we thought it could be nicer to go to some small metalclub in Tokyo instead.
So…we didn´t buy the tickets and Takashi & Miho didn´t either, because they thought spending time with us was more important. And still they really wanted to go…
Anyway…It turned out that Kitty´s labelguys at Spiritual Beast kindly enough got us on the guestlist, so when Takashi & Miho Arrived to Tokyo on sunday we all went to Makuhari Messe in Chiba for the festival.
We had a great time!! It was really nice to meet everybody and see how things worked over there. Really cool!!!!! And I saw ROB ZOMBIE!!! He was soooo goood!! I didn´t get any good pics because I only took my small camera, but always something to see…I also got all these really really crappy videos. Have to take a good look at them first. Then I decide if there´s something to show you:)
For awhile ago I tagged along with Kitty and Decadence when they were shooting the outdoor scenes for their new musicvideo. The result were finished and upped last night on the Decadence webpage. The new album “Chargepoint” will be released in Japan today, and tomorrow Kitty and I are leaving for Tokyo!! I´m sure she will keep you posted;)
Me too, but I´m just going for some vacation and to shoot some autumnfoliage in the mountains. Will be GREAT!! My darlingdarling friends, Takashi and Miho, from Hiroshima are also coming to Tokyo for a couple of days to hang out with us. Can´t wait to see them again!! They ordered some lingonberry jam, kexchoklad and some other stuff so today I´m doing some shopping;) Yesterday I heard that Olof (Skrikhult) is flying on the same plane with the guys from H.E.A.T, who are playing at Loud Park in the weekend. Hahha that´s cool:)
Anyway…here´s the Decadence video:
Now the album Chargepoint is released and the musicvideo is finished and published so I can give away the photoalbum with all the “behind the scenes” pics from the two days out in the woods. So here you go…
Two nights in a row I went to take some pics on location when Decadence worked on a musicvideo last week.
Can´t give away any spoilers, but Kitty blogged up some photos herself, so I can show the same pics. She also wroted some more about the idea behind the musicvideo. You can read about it » here.
The ancient woodland in Tyresta was really something. Really beautiful forest and there´s lots of it (Tyresta National Park is very large). The video is filmed & directed by Helena Starenby.
For about a year ago I took some pics on Metallic Kitty (Decadence).
The pics landed on my other site Chayron.com and stayed there ever since.
Now the pics have moved to their real home, extreMMetal.se.
And soon we will take some new pics!! Before the winter anyways;)
And don´t miss Kitty & Decadence at Kafé 44 in Stockholm this thursday (30th)!!!!!!
