Flera av våra egna var och lirade på Party.San och Watain headlinade första kvällen. Hade känt mig lite bitter över att jag inte var på SRF och såg dom, men med Bathory set eller utan, det kunde omöjligen varit bättre, vackrare eller mäktigare än giget på Party.San. Bilderna gör nog ingen rättvisa åt det hela…gå o se vid första bästa!! Inhopp i slutet av  S.  från The Devils Blood.

SETLIST:1. Malfeitor 2. Sworn to the Dark 3. I Am The Earth 4. Reaping Death 5. Legions of the Black Light 6. Stellarvore 7. The Somberlain (Dissection cover) 8. Waters of Ain

Snart dags att åka och festen börjar på torsdag!! Eventuell mellanlägesrapportering nånstans. Beror som på lite. Annars hörs vi nästa vecka!!

Soon I´ll be leaving for Germany & Party.San!! Talk later!!

Lite gammalt som bara inte blivit av att fixa till…hade den fantastiska turen att tajma in Crowbar på hemmaplan i New Orleans förra sommaren. Dom spelade på nån gitarrsträngreleaseparty (?) på en rockklubb på Toulouse St. Grym spelning!!! Bilderna sådär. Förbanden var…konstiga. Återkommer till dom senare.

 

Originaltexten:
Fick tipset om att Crowbar skulle spela i stan på The NV Gear Guitarstring releaseparty, så gick dit.Hade inte räknat med nån metal på den här resan men så blev det.
Lite samma folk i Crowbar som i Down och jag hade aldrig sett dom live. Dessvärre så var det inte alls Eyehategod som förband utan nått knäppt gäng som hette Consortium of Genius plus ett mellanspel av Yngwie Flattstein.
Metalfolk är i princip detsamma här också:) Fast nordbor kommer man inte undan…pratade med ett par killar i kön och deras farfar kom från Sverige. Istället för att flytta till kalla Minnesota som dom flesta utvandrarna, tog han sig ner till Louisiana istället. Smart kille;) Dom hette Nils och Lars Borgquist så dom håller sig fortfarande kvar lite grann i det Svenska arvet. Sen snackade jag med en kille som sprang runt med en filmkamera. Hans mamma kom från Finland. Och han hade faktiskt varit i Stockholm några ggr. I vilket fall så var det ett bra ställe, ljuset sög så jag kände mig hemma.

Giget var GRYMT bra!! Sen spelade dom på hemmaplan också så det vart väldigt familjärt. Det svängde som fan.
Sen midnattsmacka (innehöll ALLT. Dom snålar inte här men doggybags är standard) & en halv öl med ett par individer jag träffade på spelningen. Knoppade in vid 3.The Legendary Shack Shakers spelar den 1 augusti!!! Dom skulle jag vilja se också!

I can´t really understand why I didn´t take more (and more serious) video while in Japan…just some very few, really sucky clips which I tried to glue together. Probably they´re just fun for us but I´ll share with you anyway:) Got one more, just have to send it on YouTube. The first clip was over 8 minutes but YouTube cut it in half!!!!! Don´t know why…So you miss the Slayer finale. Some from the backstage bar with the labelguys (Spiritual Beast) and the Brasilian band Hibria, our friends Takashi & Miho from Hiroshima and some (short) clips of Rob Zombie & Slayer (live that is..).
The second clip is on a guy who played his guitar near the station when we left the festival. He was really cool!:)

diskThursday 22nd of october – a full day for Metallic Kitty with interviews, signingsession & stuff. I did what any good friend would do and left her completely alone early in the morning and went for a photowalk. Well…she was taking a 2hr bath anyway, so…;))  I came back about 3PM and the interviews were still going on at the hotel. A couple of hours later we all left for the Burrn! Magazine headquarters for the last interview of the day. A really good one, I think! The guy who did the interview was really serious and interested, the interpreter did a great job and Kitty came up with some good thoughts. Hope we can get the interview translated by somebody when it´s printed…? Me and Akira had an important role as quiet sidekicks;) Next stop was the signingsession at Disk Union.
IMG_1274Lots of fun people and even our friend Yayoi found her way to the shop. It was good to see her again:) Also saw a couple of familiar faces from Loud Park. Everything worked out perfectly and after some meet & greet with fans outside the shop, we went for some dinner with Mats & Akira (Spiritual Beast). They took us to this Izakaya where we got our own booth, lots of great food, some beer and some really clever (?;)) conversations. Kitty doesn´t drink any alcohol, but after a couple bottles of water, she really had it going;) Later we went to this rock club, owned by some friends of Mats & Akira. We also met Yayoi on the way, so she tagged along.

We had a great time with everybody. Too bad we had to catch an early train next morning, so we took the last train to Akihabara (the subway didn´t run anymore) and took the cab back to the hotel.
We miss you a lot, guys!! Next time we won´t book in any trips for the day after;)

flyerEarlier when my friend Takashi asked if he would buy us some tickets to the Loud Park festival, we said no. It was quite expensive, most of the bands play in Sweden all the time (except ROB ZOMBIE!!) and most of all, we thought we had far too little time to spend in Tokyo anyway, so a whole day on a festival…naaahhhh. Why we even discussed it, was mostly because we thought it would be so cool to go to a Japanese festival with a JAPANESE audience:) Then we thought it could be nicer to go to some small metalclub in Tokyo instead.

So…we didn´t buy the tickets and Takashi & Miho didn´t either, because they thought spending time with us was more important. And still they really wanted to go…
Anyway…It turned out that Kitty´s labelguys at Spiritual Beast kindly enough got us on the guestlist, so when Takashi & Miho Arrived to Tokyo on sunday we all went to Makuhari Messe in Chiba for the festival.
We had a great time!! It was really nice to meet everybody and see how things worked over there. Really cool!!!!! And I saw ROB ZOMBIE!!! He was soooo goood!! I didn´t get any good pics because I only took my small camera, but always something to see…I also got all these really really crappy videos. Have to take a good look at them first. Then I decide if there´s something to show you:)
