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)

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
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
Finally! UNANIMATED live!! Best gig on Day 1.
[Band bio]”UNANIMATED Was brought to life 1988 in Stockholm,Sweden by longtime friends Richard(vocals), Jojje(guitar) and Peter(drums). The goal was (and still is!) to play extreme metal,Lyrically the band was drawn to the dark and occult with satanic philosophies.”

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):)
Always something magical and extra ordinary with the Icelanders (?). New band for me ( “Árstíðir (English: Seasons) is an Icelandic classically influenced indie-folk rock/chamber pop band. The defining characteristic of this band is their vocal harmonies, as all members sing” – all according to WIKI). Beautiful performance and very nice guys:)
Daníel Auðunsson ‐ Guitar, vocals / Gunnar Már Jakobsson ‐ Guitar, baritone guitar, vocals / Karl James Pestka ‐ Violin, viola, electronics, vocals / Ragnar Ólafsson ‐ Piano, baritone guitar, vocals

Vansinningt bra spelning!!
Karl & co kunde inte ha brytt sig mindre om att det inte var fullsatt utan spelade arslet av alla närvarande. Och verkade ha lika kul som oss:)) Svinbra spelning på PartySan för ett par år sen men den här var bra mycket bättre.
