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:)

Dark Ambient/Darkwave from Germany.
“For those who don’t want to check Wikipedia: “Apoptose” describes the so called programmed cell death. It simply means that a cell dies when it is damaged or ill. This program works in nearly every living cell except for cancer cell that live on and on. When I was looking for a name for my musical project that was something that came to my mind. I especially love the literally meaning of the Greek word “Apoptosis”. It means leaves falling off trees. I still think that it fits perfectly to the topics and atmosphere of the music”

The second night, now in Stockholm. Left Gothenburg on an early train with my excellent travelling companions. Got stranded a couple of hours on the Central station before the Norwegians arrived so I could get to the venue with them. First time I went to Slaktkyrkan. The venue opened last february while I was still out of the country and it+s very close to Kraken. I really liked the place! Open courtyard and everything:) Next years Stockholm Slaughter will use both of the venues so it will work out really nice.
And SKOGEN totally ruled again! I do love that band. Great stuff. So for me, no supportbands this weekend. All equally fantastic with their specific own style. Couldn´t get any better:D
And also in Stockholm: not many mobile phones visible in the crowd:D A couple of Official clips below [Nordvis]
Grande Finale of the most excellent evening! “Havenless” as an extra treat with Grutle on iPad :D Great crowd also and very few mobile phones in sight (has that changed in general the past year or so when I´ve been out of the country?) Anyways It´s a good trend. But of course, no video clips to be found from the gigs.
Had so much fun, met so many awesome people including the ones who worked at the venue. The restaurant had an awesome vegetarian lunch buffet btw! So try it out if you ever visit Gothenburg!
Pt. 2 of a brilliant evening! Debut album in making which will be released in 2019 (Season of Mist). I do love the Trelldom, Gorgoroth, God Seed stuff, tho. Hope they still keep at least some of it in their performances in the future.
