In September 2015 (one month after God Seed’s final show), Gaahl announced his new band, Gaahls Wyrd, who played their first live show at the Blekkmetal Festival in Norway on November 13, 2015.

The feeling when something unexpected and very very nice happens:) I have a lots of love for Norway and the people I know there so now I´m taking a moment to give some thanks and promoting the great guys at Norwegian Rat clothing company who just sent me some really great gifts!! Not just one, but two of their awesome limited edition jackets (the Halvdan Svarte GAAHL´S WYRD one and also the Naglfar edition) and a couple of bags and patches.
All in superb quality and I just LOVE all the details: rat buttons, a paw print here and there, embroideries, inside prints from great Norwegian tattoo artists like Jannicke Wiese-Hansen of Nidhogg Tattoo studio in Bergen (she was also the organizer of the legendary Blekkmetal event in November 2015. N.R. still got some of the festival t-shirts in stock! ) and Dagfinn Bjelland of Karma Tattoo in Haugesund :D
I took some pics to show you (below).
Huge thanks to Thomas, Sølve & Trond! And I think that I have Kirsti R. to thank aswell;))?
“From the east comes Hrym | with shield held high;
In giant-wrath | does the serpent writhe;
O’er the waves he twists, | and the tawny eagle
Gnaws corpses screaming; | Naglfar is loose”

Blekkmetal 13-15 November, 2015,- Bergen, Norway
“Welcome the early 1990s… To the beginning of the Norwegian Black Metal scene, to the grimness, the feeling, the art, the music….”
“BlekkMetal will only happen once. Never again.”
Kinda last minute decision and totally against my financial situation, but one does not simply say no to once in a lifetime events like this!
Fantastic weekend and not that often I go to a festival with only headliner bands:) Many of them I saw live for the first time, some of them I´ve seen many times, but all of them had special setlists so there were so many awesome surprises. Lots of legends on stage those two nights. Had such a great time! Collected whatever I could find on YouTube. Hopefully there will be more! Wish I had all the setlists!
Thank you all!!!:)
