Metal Church @ 2019 Brutal Assault

Metal Church @ 2019 Brutal Assault

@metalchurchis1 #brutalAssault2019 #brutalassault

In the “useless facts that nobody cares about except me” category we have the fact that last month Flotsam and Jetsam broke my record for longest time between seeing a band live at almost 29 years. The record was short lived as yesterday Metal Church became the new record holder at over 32 years. They were great and well worth the wait. Hopefully it won’t be that long before the next time.

Today’s agenda

Krisiun @ 2017 Gefle Metal Festival

#geflemetalfestival #geflemetal @Krisiun #brutalAssault2019 #brutalassault @metalchurchis1

Followed by Sacred Reich, Metal Church (for the first time since July 2, 1987* at the Omni in Oakland, California!), Kampfar, Windhand, and more.

* If you would have told me 32 years and a month ago that I would see Metal Church next in over 32 years, in the Czech Republic no less, my mind would have exploded. Back in 1987 the Czech Republic didn’t even exist. Back then it was Czechoslovakia and part of the Soviet Union. Boy do I feel old…

Of the bands I’ve seen before, I’m most looking forward to Voivod. Of those I haven’t seen before, Hypocrisy.

Lots of rain in the forecast at Brutal Assault today, but as the guy sitting on the train next to me on the way to Roskilde Festival said, “We are not made of sugar!”

Today’s photo was taken after midnight on my way back to my Airbnb after the Gefle Metal Festival was over a couple years ago.

This year my Airbnb in Gävle was in an amazing house of similar age.
