I like the On This Day function. It´s giving me reminders of all the fun stuff and great gigs and festivals I´ve been to:) This one was one particularly eventful trip to Scotland and England with the great ARCHGOAT & VALKYRJA. I never want to end up at Nambucca in London again but I will always remember the organizer in Glasgow (Gigs In Glasgow). He did the very best of what ever limited resources he got and also took care of us all the way to London. I think his name is Vincent? If you ever meet him, buy him a beer or two:)
All of it HERE (livepics also)
www.wormwood-official.com: “We want to have the attitude from rock’n roll and have some influences in our music. It makes for a great show. We also wanted to incorporate black metal as many of us likes that. So we took the visuals from it and a big dose of the music. That raw, take-no-prisoner, viscous visage. This is not by any means new, but we wanted to have atmosphere in it. We wanted to have soundscapes from ambient music. Also, we wanted to stay true to our northern heritage, so folk influences was a given.”

“Japan’s SOLITUDE history started in 1996 with two ex-members of SACRIFICE (Japan) (the founding member and main composer Akira Sugiuchi and the bass player on two of their albums Toru Nishida.)”
A bit annoying that when SOLITUDE finally played in Sweden, the first gig would be at Anchor in the middle of the week. They deserved so much better! Nevertheless, the guys played an awesome gig like the pros they are! And also the next 2 gigs in southern parts of Sweden went obviously way better:)
Heavy metal from Halmstad and the guys who brought my Japanese friends to play in Sweden:)
Band Members Martin Bengtsson, Vocals, Guitar – Fredrik Nordstrandh, Guitar – Martin Karlsson, Bass – Kristian Wallman, Drums.
From the band bio: “Quite simply, Bloodbath was born out of this shared admiration for quality death metal in the old style & the guys quickly realized that they could churn some ugly metal out to a pretty high standard.”
Old Nick – Vocals Blakkheim – Guitar Joakim – Guitar Lord Seth – Bass Axe – Drums

“In the dirt where fallen idols lay to rest, the maggots and seeds in 2014 spawned a new creation. This took the ugly form of Lik, which fittingly means corpse in Swedish”
Band Members:Chris Barkensjö – drums & vocals Tomas Åkvik – vocals & guitars Niklas “Nille” Sandin – guitars Joakim “Myre” Antman – Bass
“Crawl is death metal for people that don’t want frilly bullshit. Nothing fancy, nothing polished, just some solid, banging crusty death metal.”

Last band on day/night 1 on the boat. DT don´t represent “my kind” of metal but a good gig is a good gig! Stayed ´til the end and all of the sudden it was 3.30 in the morning.
There were some delays with a couple of bands earlier so everything was running later than usual. Anyways there´s not too much sleep on the metal cruises in which case so din´t really matter.
The band: Stanne, Jivarp, Amott, Brändström, Iwers, & Reinholdz
Band bio @ FB: “SCAR SYMMETRY proved to be an exceptional gathering of talents able to produce an eccentric mixture of metal that can only be described as an intoxicating, modern hybrid of melodic death metal.”
Lars Palmqvist – vocals Roberth Karlsson – vocals Per Nilsson – guitar Benjamin Ellis – guitar Henrik Ohlsson – drums

ROME I´m way more familiar with. I love the albums but only saw them live once before. Dark, beautiful and very very cool! The first ever ROME album I ever heard was “Flowers from Exile” and it´s still my favourite.
Some snapshots also below the livepics. Just from the merch area. And a picture of Vlad (DDP):)
