Throwback Thursday

Uli Jon Roth @ 2016 Metal Magic Festival

@MetalMagicDK @UliJonRoth1

Throwing it back to my first Metal Magic Festival and a love affair that hopefully won’t end anytime soon. The 2020 Metal Magic Festival will happen in early July, and I hope to be there. Blaze Bayley has already been announced as one of the acts. I skipped that era of Iron Maiden so now it’s time to go back and see if I can get into The X Factor and Virtual XI, the only two Iron Maiden releases that I’m not intimately familiar with.

Metal Monday

Show's about to start

Today’s photo comes from moments before Oranssi Pazuzu hit the Gloria Stage at the 2017 Roskilde Festival. Oranssi Pazuzu will be touring the USA soon. Unfortunately, I will be in Mexico when they come through the west coast, but this is something you don’t want to miss if you are in the area.

Primordial @ 2019 Gefle Metal Festival

#primordial #primordialband #geflemetalfestival #geflemetal

This is my church
It stands so tall
Proud
And has done
For all time
It has no walls
Yet its vast halls
Reach from shore to shore

2020 Brutal Assault tickets now on sale

Micci the mistake

#brutalAssault2019 #brutalassault #brutalAssault2020 #vampillia @Vampillia

Tickets for the 25th annual Brutal Assault Festival have just gone on sale. The early bird price is just 98 Euros. This festival is an incredible experience and value. 98 Euros will get you four days of music (or more if you do the pre and/or post parties) from 10 a.m. until 4 a.m. Needless to say, the festival will, again, sell out so don’t wait to purchase. Also, the price will go up at some point. The ticket prices aren’t the only value. Everything else is reasonably priced too. Compared to other festivals beer/cocktails are about 1/5th the price, t-shirts are about half price, and food is inexpensive as well. The setting at Fortress Josefov can’t be beat.

Go early or stay late and spend a few nights or a few weeks in Prague before and/or after. The Czech capital turns into a Metalhead Mecca before and after the festival. I was amazed how many complete strangers I met and became BFFs with. People from Netherlands, Egypt, Israel, Denmark, Finland, France, Australia, etc. Even though I purchased a round trip train ticket to the festival from Prague, I was offered rides–both ways–and didn’t end up using my train ticket.

Buy your Brutal Assault tickets here.

And the 2019 after movie:

Happy Friday the 13th!

(Psychedelic) Metal Monday

幾何学模様

@orangefeeling ‏#rf19 @kikagaku_moyo

I was very happy to see that Kikagaku Moyo had been added to the Roskilde Festival lineup for 2019. Then the running order was announced. Dang! Not only were they playing at the same time as The Cure, but they were also overlapping Behemoth. I ended up watching the entire (now infamous–due to certain activities in the pit) Behemoth set from the front row and catching a bit of The Cure and Kikagaku Moyo after.

I would love to see Kikagaku Moyo again, and they are coming to Oregon. However, they are playing in Eugene on a Monday night, and I have to teach in Ashland (3 hours away) on Tuesday morning so that won’t happen. 🙁
