Demon Head @ 2019 Metal Magic Festival

#DemonHead @MetalMagicDK @svartrecords

A band that wasn’t on my radar before hearing about the festivals of 2019 was Demon Head. Upon listening, I quickly became a fan and was fortunate enough to see them not once but twice. Unfortunately, they had really bad time slots. At Copenhell they had the earliest show on the final day. Their performance was amazing, but there wasn’t a big crowd, and those in attendance, including myself, were pretty tired. Almost a month later I saw them at Metal Magic, pictured above, well past midnight after the first day of the festival. Brilliant again, the stage seemed a little cramped for all five of them and their props.

If you haven’t heard Demon Head, check them out here–wonderful compositions with clean, haunting vocals. For fans of Black Sabbath, The Doors, High on Fire, and early Judas Priest…

Vulture @ Metal Magic Festival

@MetalBlade #Vulture @MetalMagicDK

One of my favorite bands from this year’s Metal Magic Festival. Coordinated outfits you occasionally see from metal bands, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen matching guitars from a band before.

Genesis 6:66 And Satan sayeth, I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and Brutal Assault.

If only Dio was still around and on the bill this year…

Metro Narvskaya

На́рвская (Metro station in Saint Petersburg, Russia)

I had a list of things I wanted to see while in Saint Petersburg, Russia earlier this month. The metro stations wasn’t one of them, but with two days of lousy weather in a row, with the first day already spent at an unplanned stop (The Hermitage Museum), I needed to find something not outdoors that wouldn’t have me standing around in another museum. Turns out there is a museum of sorts, that allows sitting much of the time, that’s deep underground in St. Petersburg. The cost was nice too (45 rubles or about US $.70).

The Soviets really did a number on their metro stations in the 1950s. Each is unique and many are rather decadent. I set out for the “two best” in Saint Petersburg. Along the way I jumped out at several unplanned stops that looked amazing or interesting as well. The Narvskaya Station (На́рвская) was one of those not considered to be one of the best, but wow was it fascinating.
