KING DIAMOND – Metallsvenskan 25/5 2013
Last year´s show at the Sweden Rock Festival was an over the top performance so the expectations for this time were sky high. And ofc it was pure magic! Once more one of those gigs you will NEVER forget!! Also got lucky again and got photo access for the whole show. After the first 3 songs the pit cleared out and there were only me and the security. So loads of pics!:D Still, for some reason I found the stage at the Sweden Rock easier to photograph at…? But I´m happy with the results.
I met King and his wife Livia (Awesome woman! Very talented and a big part of everything that is KING DIAMOND!!) very briefly before the show when their tourmanager sorted out my access & passes, but the next morning I hanged out with the royal couple until their bus leaved Örebro. Livia makes these fabulous miniatures and she gave me a tiny piece of cake as a present:D I also became a proud owner of a K.D / Andy La Rocque guitar pick which was found on the hotel room floor and handed over to me by the King himself. Gotta frame it or something!!;) My friends in F.K.Û gave me their new CD the night before and asked me to give it to King. So I did. And took a picture to prove it!

VOMITORY – Metallsvenskan 25/5 2013
The first gig of three on my “VOMITORY Stalking Tour 2013” (kinda did the same with HELL last year:)). Already went to Sweden Rock (I´m late with updates!!) and the next will be at Party.San. Too bad this great band are calling it quits later this year after 20-something years as one of the best and heaviest of all time;(
Just have to wait for the reunion tour 2023 then…
Line up: Erik Rundqvist Bass/Vocals/Tobias Gustafsson Drums/Urban Gustafsson Guitar/Peter Östlund Guitar
PRIMORDIAL – Metallsvenskan 25/5 2013
Still wondering how the hell did he do it? I mean the vocalist of PRIMORDIAL, A.A. Nemtheanga. First all day football with Armageddon FF Capitals (support!!) and right after he appeared on stage making such an intense and dark (in full daylight & sunshine) performance. First ever PRIMORDIAL live gig for me. Next one will be at Party.San!
Line up:AA Nemtheanga (Alan Averill) – Vocals/Ciarán MacUilliam – Guitar/Michael O’Floinn – Guitar/Pól MacAmlaigh – Bass/Simon O’Laoghaire – Drums

Can´t come up with any kind of explanation for the non-Swedish:) You should learn to sing the feat. song, tho. A classic piece of art!!:)
BULLET – Metallsvenskan 24/5 2013
About@http://www.nuclearblast.de: ”Because we wanted to play heavy metal”. Regardless of which Bullet member you ask, the answer is always the same. There were no secret agendas or philosophical overtones. The reason why singer Dag “Hell” Hofer and guitarist Hampus Klang formed Bullet in Växjö in 2001 is so self-explanatory that it is almost served with a slightly unsympathetic intonation: “Because we wanted to play heavy metal”.
Line Up: Hell Hofer (Vocals) / Hampus Klang (Lead guitar) / Alexander Lyrbo (Lead guitar) / Adam Hector (Bass) / Gustav Hjortsjö (Drums)
