EPIC gig the first day of the festival!! We missed TYRANT, who couldn´t be there, but Tobbe (Cristiansson, from DISMEMBER & GRAVE) did really good!! Hail NIFELHEIM!! FTW!! And f**k Ulf Malmros!

One of the greatest bands on earth and not that common to see on a stage in Stockholm!! Some enthusiast poured beer on my camera when the band entered the stage so had to dry the lens a bit with my sleeve (I do have a filter on it, of course. I don´t use sleeves on the optics. Mostly:). Still I got some of it left in the viewfinder. Haha fukken metalheads:) ❤ Fantastic gig and (ofc) the pics got a nice retro feeling. Very much like the ones I always ended up with back in 2005 at Tantogården shooting with my very first DSLR (Canon 20D, 18-55 kit lens;). In which case, here you go.
Survived one more cruise:) I hate the Fin-Swe boats in general but I love the metalcruises. Thanks to the good people @ Sweden Rock Magazine for always having me: And feeding me. And giving me something to drink:) Anyway, some pics to begin with. Mostly on people I know, love & admire. Some random fun people made it ialso in the gallery. All the live pics will be uploaded later.
The bands and the running order:
22:45 Blind Guardian
14:00 Nocturnal Rites
Nifelheim is the shit!! A few of the coolest and probably the most fun hours I will ever spend in the studio. Lots and lots of gear, including a small coffin, a homemade spiderwebmaker (a BRILLIANT invention by Hellbutcher!!) a black plastic bag containing 3 rotten goatheads and all that heavy, spiky stuff the band wear at concerts. Wonder what can be worst…a couple of hours on stage or half a day in a photostudio with all that weight. I´m still very proud of my work that day…and of course for them choosing me as their photographer;))
Got a package from Regain today with some stuff containing various bandpics I took for a while ago. A collection of Dismember and Nifelheim posters, CD:s and vinyls.
I love the Nifelheim vinyl!! It looks great with the bigger photos . Even the quite crappy black & red livephoto from Hovet looks nice on the gatefold.
*Do the happy dance – in trainig for thursday! Facebreaker@Anchor;))*
The nicest party this year! Not that I´ve been to so many parties, but still:)
And I finally got the new record for real…I´ve been listening to some mp3:s but now I got the real thing. Nice people (and LOTS of them!), my pics all over the place and a few beers. It could´nt be better.
Did some bandpics with Nifelheim yesterday.
I´m not allowed to show any of the pics yet but It was the coolest thing I´ve ever done!! I just adore these guys and I´ve been waiting for this photoshoot for about a year or so. So now I´m only hoping they will be happy with the pics…otherwise I maybe end up in one of their coffins…
Later // Soile
