Two months until the 2018 Gefle Metal Festival. I won’t be going this year as it conflicts with the 2018 Metal Magic Festival which I will be going to (in its entirety for the first time–I’ve been twice but only for one day before this year).

Happy birthday, Johan Hegg!

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.
