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…

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!”

Oathbreaker @ 2017 Roskilde Festival

Mercyful Fate @ Copenhell 2020!

King Diamond @ Copenhell

As my summer festival season is approaching an end, I was thinking that now there are close to no bands left that I really want to see that I haven’t. And then this showed up in my email….

“The legendary Danish heavy metal band MERCYFUL FATE will make a spectacular return at next year’s COPENHELL festival in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Almost 40 years ago, singer King Diamond and guitarist Hank Shermann created what would later become the most iconic and influential Danish heavy metal band ever…

The band will perform (at 2020 Copenhell) with the “9” lineup featuring Hank Shermann (guitar), King Diamond (vocals), Bjarne T. Holm (drums), Mike Wead (guitar) and Joey Vera (Bass)… the set list will only consist of songs from the very first ‘mini LP’, the “Melissa” and “Don’t Break The Oath” albums plus some brand new songs written specifically in that very same style.”

And now I really must get back to Copenhagen next summer!

Yes, I’ve seen King Diamond a few times (including back in the 1980s), but I don’t like any of his albums nearly as much as I love Melissa and Don’t Break The Oath, and he barely touches those albums live anymore.

I haven’t looked at more than a few of my (1,500+) photos from the 2019 Gefle Metal Festival yet, but here is one from a couple years ago.

In 13 days 2019 Copenhell will be over. 🙁 The good news is that it hasn’t even started yet. 🙂
