The feeling when something unexpected and very very nice happens:) I have a lots of love for Norway and the people I know there so now I´m taking a moment to give some thanks and promoting the great guys at Norwegian Rat clothing company who just sent me some really great gifts!!  Not just one, but two of their awesome limited edition jackets (the Halvdan Svarte GAAHL´S WYRD one and also the Naglfar edition) and a couple of bags and patches.
All in superb quality and I just LOVE all the details: rat buttons, a paw print here and there, embroideries, inside prints from great Norwegian tattoo artists like Jannicke Wiese-Hansen of Nidhogg Tattoo studio in Bergen (she was also the organizer of the legendary Blekkmetal event in November 2015. N.R. still got some of the festival t-shirts in stock! ) and Dagfinn Bjelland of Karma Tattoo in Haugesund :D
I took some pics to show you (below).

Huge thanks to Thomas, Sølve & Trond! And I think that I have Kirsti R. to thank aswell;))?

“From the east comes Hrym | with shield held high;
In giant-wrath | does the serpent writhe;
O’er the waves he twists, | and the tawny eagle
Gnaws corpses screaming; | Naglfar is loose”

Ritual – a tributeband including legends  as Gaahl, Dirge Rep, Skagg, Hoest, Iscariah, Thurzur,  Devilish and Infernal Vlad of Cult of Fire. Haha still can´t believe it:)) Hoest  in a couple of BURZUM songs and also some DEATHCULT (Thurzur, Skagg & Hoest playing the bass) who obviously never played live before.  And the greatness continued with OLD FUNERAL, HELHEIM, KAMPFAR and TAAKE.

Sunday we spent just hanging around with people at the venue until it was time for all to pack their things and leave. Got a great present from Kristian who gave me a signed and numbered copy of the book with his art!!! Later we met up at Garage for the crew party and some food (realy good reindeer stew for 70 people!:)), beers and Kvitrafn performed some songs for us. A perfect ending of an awesome weekend. Made some new friends and just to say bye to everyone I wanted to/could find took ages:)) Hope we meet soon again!
