Viking Picnic in Hell

No Copenhell, vikings, or wolves this summer. So sad.

Freedom Statue

Liberty Statue

Today’s photo comes from Budapest a few summers ago. I didn’t know this at the time of my visit, but the statue was erected after World War II by the Hungarian people (or maybe the Soviets), and the inscription below it originally read:

“To the memory of the liberating Soviet heroes
the grateful Hungarian people
1945”

Of course, the Hungarians soon came to hate their “Soviet heroes” so in 1989 after the “heroes” were given the boot the inscription was changed to:

“To the memory of those who sacrificed their lives for the independence, freedom, and prosperity of Hungary”.

Although the Roskilde Festival is not a “metal festival”, and is slowly moving away from being a rock festival, there is always just enough to keep people like me interested. The 2020 rendition will feature bands such as Faith No More, Deftones, Amenra, High On Fire, Nyredolk, Old Man Gloom, Elder, Youth Code, Gabestok, Eyes, Employed to Serve, Helms Alee, The Night Flight Orchestra, Oozing Wound, Bersærk, Heathe, Conjurer, Svalbard, and ORM (who has a new EP coming out tomorrow).

Behemoth on the Arena Stage in 2019

Bring along your daughter (as I did in 2018), and she can enjoy the likes of Taylor Swift, Anderson Paak, and Mura Masa. Just don’t ask me to name a single song from any of those artists as I can’t do it.

Fork in the road

The stage lighting at Roskilde Festival is second to none. Unlike most metal festivals, that typically have two nearly identical stages right next to each other with similar lighting and vibe, the five main stages at Roskilde are very different, each with their own unique atmosphere.

Anthrax @ 2017 Roskilde Festival

Because it’s not a metal festival, there are opportunities to get more up close and personal with bands you love since there are probably about 100,000 people at the festival who will not be going to see the band you want to see.

Full festival tickets are still available here for about US$320, or single day tickets are about US$160. The tickets usually sell out. Last year Roskilde Festival sold out in early May.
