  • GRÁ – Belsepub, Gbg 24/1 2020

    “Grá was formed in 2010 by Heljarmadr and Dimman. The band has since then released en EP, three full lenght albums, a mini-CD, two singles, a full live video, done numerous live concerts around Europe and several music videos. Grá performs classic Swedish styled black metal, alternating between Swedish and English lyrics.
    The name Grá comes from a mixture of the Icelandic “grár” and the Swedish “grå”, simply meaning “gray”. The major content of the lyrical concept is based upon the ancient Scandinavian religion, or rather upon the dark aspects of ancient Scandinavian spirituality.”

  • VÄHÄNUMMIROCK [Pt1. Anno Domini 2019]

    Nu är jag ingen skribent, eller nån recensent men lite personligt jidder…
    Lite blandad kompott från mobilen, lilla & stora kameran. Bara städade och familjevänliga bilder. Allt annat är mig främmande och nånting ska sparas för memoarer och/eller utpressningssyften.
    Stor tack till mina resekompisar i VALKYRJA och ljustech Ella! Och arrangören Jussi Vähänummi (AUTHOR) som satte ihop allt detta och såg till att hans egna (egenbyggda tom) nightliner hämtade och lämnade oss på flygplatsen i Hfors. Skitnajs att träffa alla andra jag kände i div orkester. Bra folk allihop. Och tack till och för det fantastiska helrökta svinet som agerade bandmat under lördagen och anlände komplett med en kille som stog och karvade till lagom bitar.
    Matvagnen utomhus var inte fyskam den heller utan serverade hygglig mat till rimligt pris. Hann testa en Porilainen (typ som en hamburgare men med en tjock skiva Finsk lördagskorv istället.

    Kommersen inomhus missade jag senare fast hade tänkt att shoppa lite mer:/ Norpade åt mig ett par patchar från Horror Shop och surrade lite med Rex som numera äger Saturnal Records innan dom öppnade stället, men sen när banden började så fanns det bara tid för att springa ut och röka, dricka nånting och fortsätta med lite snabbt skvaller med Makkonen (som jag känner sen tidigare från SADISTIK FOREST & HOODED MENACE) som hade åkt halva Finland för eventet.  All band/festivalmerch fanns utomhus under tak. Förutom Taaketröjan hade jag väl tänkt att fixa nånting mer. Som nått nytt från ARCHGOAT, men det blev inte av sen ändå.  Fick en skitfin tröja av dom när vi var på UK turen för ett par år sen men den börjar ge upp i sömmarna.
    Vad jag hade siktat in mig på var egentligen en festivalhoodie men den blev till slut bara tryckt för crewet.

    Nu var det ju bara fyra band så lätt att jag kollade alla spelningarna från början till slut sittandes på min lilla låda i fotodiket. Prima liv! Ljuset kom & gick som vanligt så bara att försöka få till nånting. Överlag ett bra event och det ska bli en ny upplaga nästa år så håll koll!

    Arrangemanget funkade skitbra för min del iaf fast arrangören höll på att få problem för innan öppningen gick brandlarmet 2 ggr nästan på raken och utan nån specifik anledning. Nån kom och fixade till det sen så den slutade att tjuta i tid & otid:/ Securityn var väldigt trevliga och hjälpsamma  oh såg till att jag inte hade några som helst problem med nått:D
    Bara bästa band så på den punkten var det helt lysande!

    På souvenirsidan blev det ett par tröjor (festivaltisha & Taake dito), ett par cd:n: en som jag fick av Rex på Saturnalia Rec. och var en split med hans egna band KYY, DJEVELKULT och NIHIL KAOS “Kult of Kaos Serpent”. Den andra var upphittad backstage där det låg en drös av “Slave’s Mask – Soak Kaos” plattor.  Tuomas “Spellgoth” från HORNA är inblandad så antar att han hade lämnat ett gäng för allmän utdelning. Såg honom inte just då men folk vid bordet var tillräckligt övertygande så tog en:). Sen köpte jag (snodde bara kaffe och mat backstage;)) faktiskt en specialburk med festivalöl och glömde burkjäveln:( Den skulle ha hängt med hem ju.

    Ingen sightseeing i Björneborg. Förutom promenaden mellan boendet och spelstället. Och den konstiga lilla repan med Vlad och Victor nån gång på natten efter första pubkvällen. Vet inte ens vad men vi såg bla kanalen och fyndade en Lamborghini i bra skick. Den fick inte plats i väskan så  den blev kvar där den stog.

    that´s about it.

  • NECROPHOBIC – Sweden Rock Festival 2014

    My travelling buddies and the reason I eneded up at SRF this year. I was very excited to see NECROPHOBIC with the new vocalist and can´t say I was disappointed. Quite the opposite.  Atte (earlier in the band 1992-1994) is a GREAT frontman and the whole gig was  all thunder and darkness even though it was extremely hot and sunny on the stage. Invented a happy dance to “Revelation 666”, but that one you  never want to see. It was only for a couple of persons behind the backdrop.  Dunno what L.G. thought about it:)) I´m guest appearing in some of the clips below. Never mind that. I had to.
    Anyways, even the very sceptic guy (“It simply just CAN´T work out without T.S.”) in the front row seemed to fully enjoy the gig.

  • METAL MAGIC 5 @ Fredericia, Denmark 13-14/7 2012 – The Illustrated Roadtrip Report

    Metal Magic 5Dear diary…
    I went on a roadtrip with the guys in VALKYRJA/ONDSKAPT.  Both bands were playing at the Metal Magic Festival in Denmark and we actually drove Sthlm – Fredericia in only 8 hours or so! Thanks to Vlad &  Jocke who were excellent drivers and also didn´t allowe any unnecessary stops on the way. I think everybody had to pee in the beercans or something?;)) Even feeding the troops was on the effective side. We just grabbed something from a burgerjoint at the roadside, ran back to the van (motor probably running…) and hit the road. After a couple of looong and expensive bridges (the first one we know about, the second one was a bit of a surprise…pricey one), we made it just in time for to see our friends in DIE HARD!! Thanks to the great staff at MM5, we got our passes, bands @ drink tickets in no time. They even got us an accomodation closer to the venue (5 min walk instead of…dunno…30?) and promised to drive the van there if the guys get too drunk:))

    2012-07-14-21.03When all that was sorted out, we galloped off to the gig. We only missed the first 10 minutes or so. I also saw my third HELL gig since May later that evening.  They were fantastic at the Sweden Rock Festival in daylight, but they really can create the most awesome atmosphere when it´s a bit dark. Some rain and shitcold is also to prefer:)
    Some beer drinking and meeting up with friends in a mixed dressing room/camping area with some ppl from HELL and Evil-Lÿn (a nice bunch from Finland:)).

    The next morning I made some new friends at the beer breakfast at the venue. Didn´t have that much to do, so I hooked up with Timmy & the other el Camino guys (they played before w arrived) and went for some sightseeing in Fredericia (which btw was a really nice town!). Later I also met up with Alexandra (Püssy A Go Go), my roommates Axel (Ondskapt) & Adrian (Angrepp,IXXI) for some food and beers on the
    IMG_6788mainstreet. And lots of other nice people:)

    I saw/shot most of the bands on saturday and tried to film some vids for my guys. ONDSKAPT, VALKYRJA and DEATHHAMMER played indoors (GREAT gigs all of them!!) and the rest of the bands on the outdoor stage. Really good performances by Turbocharged, Crystal Viper and Evil-Lÿn!! Wasn´t that warm outside and it rained a bit, but it was ok anyway:) The Devil´s Blood headlined on Saturday. F. lost her voice for some reason after a few songs and the band just continued making the rest of the set instrumental. And they still ruled!!:)

    IMG_5801Metal Magic is a great small festival!! Very limited amount of tickets with camping just a few meters from the pub (you could actually sit inside a train!  The whole venue was an old train station. Really cool:)). I enjoyed it a lot and hope to go back.  For the full festival, not just a couple of days like this time. Still very happy I went there!
    What else…? Yep! Bought a t-shirt:))
    We drove back home almost as fast than we drove to Denmark. We took turns DJ:ing and I totally got the BEST playlist, but the Spotify controls in my phone were totally fucked up, so most of the songs were cut in half;) Note to self: if you ever need a DJ, NEVER book Vlad! He´s gruesome on stage, plays in amazing bands, but got this terrible taste in music!:p

    Lots of thanks to my delightful companions who took care of me, and were really fun to travel with, all old & new friends I met and a BIG thanks and hugs to Martin Jørgensen & all the staff at the festival. People like you make this world to a better place:))

  • DIE HARD @ Metal Magic 5 – Fredericia, Denmark 13/7 2012

    We (I travelled with VALKYRJA/ONDSKAPT, who both played the day after) didn´t think we would make it, but we did and were at the venue in time to see most of the DIE HARD gig, thanks to our excellent driver Jocke (VALKYRJA)! No stops (hardly. one or two at the most) and no mercy! Sthlm-Fredericia in 7-8 hrs!
    First time I saw the band live since the former vocalist/guitarist Hasse left the band and maybe first time also after Håkan (WATAIN) as drummer? But this trio actually worked very well together! So now the line up is as follows: Simon (VALKYRJA, ONDSKAPT) – guitars/vocals, Harry – vocals/bass & Perra (NOMINON) – drums.

  • OZ – Getaway Rock Festival 6/7 2012

    I worked for this festival the first two  years (as the official photographer) and loved it. It used to be a really nice one but now there was a totally different feel all over it (new owners, new order). Oh well…didn´t stay that long anyway. Had a really nice roadtrip with my friends in OZ and I didn´t go hungry or without coffee;))  Didn´t make it to the ISOLE gig, only heard the last tones when were carrying stuff to the dressing room.  That sucked, but I´ll get to see them in august instead:) The OZ gig was great fun as always!! A bit hard to shoot time to time, but I still loved the lights. Great crowd also:)) Met quite a many friends and other cool people in that short time at the festival and also got my new extreMMetal armband from Tommy @ Tom Leatherarts!! He does some great leatherwork so check out his pages!! Shot the whole gig so lots of pics:)
