Two months ago, today, this happened… Where’s my time machine?

36 hours after taking this photo, the ex-girlfriend of one of these Amon Amarth guys gave me a ride back to Stockholm. Life can be full of surprises.

A little over nine years after seeing Amon Amarth for the first time, in Sweden, I was fortunate to see them again. They put on a bigger and better performance every time I go to one of their shows. It’s safe to say that the crowd was larger and more into Amon Amarth than for anyone else at this year’s Gefle Metal Festival.

Coincidentally, I was staying at an Airbnb in Gavle and someone formerly affiliated with the band happened to be staying there too. This person offered me a ride back to Stockholm after the festival. On that car ride south to Stockholm we passed a car with a Negative Self bumper sticker on it. That reminded me that I met a couple of guys at the festival (in bandanas in the front row for Testament) who said they were big fans of Negative Self and who encouraged me to check them out. I emailed them to see if it was them we passed and it was! A small world indeed.

A few weeks back I mentioned that I was shooting 2017 Copenhell. Turns out I will also be shooting the 2017 Roskilde Festival (Red Fang, High on Fire, Foo Fighters, Anthrax, Cult of Luna, Atomikyla, Baby Woodrose, Circuit De Yeux, Neurosis, Oathbreaker, Oranssi Pazuzu, etc.) and Gefle Metal Festival 2017 (Death Angel, Nervosa, Sanctuary, Bloodbath, Insomnium, Testament, Sodom, Destroyer 666, Dark Funeral, Grand Magus, Opeth, Arch Enemy, Pagandom, Taake, etc.)! Amon Amarth will be at the Gefle Metal Festival (formerly known as the Getaway Rock Festival).

I’m thinking about adding Gefle Metal Festival 17 to my summer itinerary. I went to the Getaway Rock Festival back in 2011 at this same location.

Amon Amarth is headlining. If I go, this will be my fourth time seeing them. Other bands include Arch Enemy, who I haven’t seen with their new singer, Death Angel, Nervosa, and Sanctuary, who I haven’t seen in 27 years!
