Candlemass-Ancient-DreamsCANDLEMASS third album “Ancient Dreams” turned 25 and I went to the b-day bash at Medis. With my mom, who came to town for the holidays. She was a bit anxious before the show, but enjoyed the whole thing a lot and also bought herself some merch. She also got to meet some of my awesome friends:)

The show was great!! Their earlier plans to have the whole thing filmed, didn´t work out and some other things didn´t go as planned but shit happens and it still was awesome!! The always so impressive Jörgen Sandström (Grave,Entombed,The Project Hate,Torture Division etc. Looking stunning in his new shirt!!;)) got on stage with very short notice and also the great Pepper Potemkin ( Blackbird Burlesque Cabaret / The Catastrophe Orchestra) appeared during “Solitude” in the end of the show. Dunno about that Torsten Flink guy, tho:) Great thanks to the CANDLEMASS guys for this awesome night!

It´s been almost a year since the last time I saw the legendary HELL. This time they only got some 30 minutes on stage but they made the most of it as expected. A short but awesome show!! They also got some time to hang out with me:) The new album is KILLER and on the top of my Best of 2013 list! Can´t wait to see them on a headline tour!! Or at some cool festivals next summer

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


spotify Two extraordinary nights at Püssy A Go Go. Douglas P. live was a great experience. I never knew that much about him or Death In June, but did my homework when I heard he was stopping at the club the last days on tour.
Lots of controversy. And lots of recordings:) Brilliant stuff! Kinda hooked now. In Solitude guys were DJ´ing.

Awesome performance infront of a huge cheering crowd. They also got great reviews and response after the gig. Really happy for them! Well deserved!:))
Thanks to Akira (Spiritual Beast) who again took care of my passes!
