I never finish any kinds of “Best of” lists for any year. But made a small compilation of shit I´ve been up to in 2016:) Very lame year with lots of problems and cancelled gigs/festivals/travels but anyways. Maybe a good thing because managed to keep it within 8 pages of pics xD
So here you go:

Long day. Early wake up call, train in many hours Glasgow – London (Nice views!! Lots of sheep:D), straight to the venue (way too long walk to the venue with all the gear) Always kinda cool when organizers care to pick up the bands somewhere. After a long day travelling it´s not on the top of the wishlist to do subways and long walks trying to find the place. Luckily we got full-service Vincent (Gigs in Glasgow) with us so he was in charge. Still, it was a fukken long walk!
VALKYRJA did a great gig! Until there were technical problems and then the microphone died. After some attempts to communicate with the sound booth, just to realize no one was even there, RDSX walked off the stage and the rest of the band followed. Nothing much to do. But at least it was great as long as it lasted:)
And our Vincent had a 10 hr bus drive home to Glasgow and had to leave before this exciting night was even over. Kudos to the guy for all his efforts!!
The whole “De Mysteriis Dom Satanas”. Freaking amazing!! I still hold the 2006 Gates of Metal show as the best one ever, but this was truly amazing!!! Awesome stage also! Sharon from Toxic Vison made the crosses and Ester (Segarra) did some decoration work with a bunch of ribs:))
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!!!:)
