A magical show with TERRA TENEBROSA. Breathtaking!!!
Thanks to APSKALLE STOCKHOLM for this great evening!:))
From band bio: “True to their roots, this powerful trio who performs a headstrong metal with roots deep in the impenetrable mire of the stoner/doom/sludge tradition nuansed with streaks of progressive rock, post metal and psychadelica.”
Mighty COLOSSUS @ Kulturhuset, Studion. It was great to see them live for the first time. Really good show and a great start for the evening!
Line up: Niklas Eriksson – Guitar & Vocals / Peter Berg – Bass / Thomas Norstedt – Drums

I´ve seen FACEBREAKER many times since Klubben in Stockholm back in 2006. Always great to be at their shows and even though Roberth is a rockstar in SCAR SYMMETRY, this is the shit!!;) While Mika (Lagreen) is occupied by his duties in GRAVE, mr Bendler (ENGULFING RAGE) is touring with the band. And he did great at SDF!
I know Widda mostly from DEMONICAL and never seen his first band which been around for a long long time. At first as Misanthropic Orchestra (since 1996), name change in -98 to DIABOLICAL. At last I could catch them at a live show!! Awesome band!! Awesome gig!
Line up: Sverker Widgren.Carl Stjärnlöv.Tobias Jansson.Dan Darforth.Pär Johansson.
Arrived too late to see VOLTURYON kicking off the evening (Early!!Around 6.45PM), and I was very sorry for that. However, the bands I did see were really good! Many of them quite new to me. SYN:DROM were really brutal with some NILE´ish feeling.
From band bio:”SYN:DROM was formed in Sundsvall Sweden in 2002 with the intention of making superb death metal the way the members liked it! In 2006 after a couple of years of demo recordings the self released EP “Birth Of A Dark Empire” got to see the light of day. The sound had developed into a concrete wall of brutal death metal with a mix of both European and American sound.”

Backdating as hell!!Some of the pics has been on FB:) Metal Archives: Sectu was formed in 2005 by Stefan Lundgren (Necromicon, Sobre Nocturne) and was initially known as Cimmerian Dome.
Line up: Stefan Lundgren – Guitar/Vocals, Anders Ericson – Guitar, CG Bäckström – Drums, Johan Niemann – Bass
Great band! Check them out!
AEON, also from the Northern parts of Sweden, have been around since 1999.
WIKI: According to Allmusic, Aeon plays “uncommonly intense, technically proficient, high-velocity brand of death metal”. The latest album ”Aeons Black” is getting great reviews in the media. Don´t have it yet, need to do something about it:) (Wrote this in November and the album got out recently;))
SOULDRAINER from way up north opened the STHLM Deathfeast with some really cool melodic metal. Even I liked it and I´m not that often into the melodic stuff. So check them out! :) Got some troubles to get the lights right in the camera but managed to get at least some ok pics:)
Current Line-up: Vocals & Guitars – Marcus Edvardsson, Bass – Joakim Wassberg, Drums – Sverker Berggren
Some snapshots of the beautiful people…;)) Big thanks and hugs and kisseeeees to Club Distortion and Sophie & Peter for a great evening.
According to my galleries it´s been 3 years since my last GS gig?? Again…I miss Tanto, the venue I saw them the last time in 2008. For you who are not familiar with the place, it was a house in a park in Sthlm and it burned down for a couple of years ago. By then it was already lost because the city of Sthlm just snatched the place from the metalheads for whatever reason:( The end of a great era in Sthlm metal. Sucky lights and sometimes really bad sounds but it was home for a long time. Anyway, I went there a few times for the annual GENERAL SURGERY gig in the autumn so for me Tanto & GS (and Club Distotion;)) are forever connected. So that´s why all the nostalgic blahblah:))
VICIOUS ART is no more. The farewell gig was a worthy finale of the band´s career. Crazy as ever and heavy as hell:) Just counted and since 2006 I´ve seen V.A. seven times and every time they did a great show. “Death metal with a twist” for sure:) You´re going to be missed!!
The first ever gig with THE RESISTANCE. They were supposed to play on the Close-Up Cruise, but they had to cancel. Check the line up: Marco Aro – vocals (Face Down, ex the Haunted), Jesper Strömblad – guitar (ex In Flames, Dimension Zero), Glenn Ljungström – guitar (ex In Flames, Dimension Zero), Alex Losbäck Holstad – bass (ex Despite, Decameron, Cardinal Sin), Chris Barkensjö – drums (Carnal Forge, Godsic, ex Grave)
