Metal Monday

Sing-along

#geflemetalfestival #geflemetal @OfficialNeurot @neurosisoakland @RelapseRecords @quantumyob @Krisiun

There’s a war going on in my head about what I should do during my last weekend in Copenhagen this summer.

Should I fly across the Øresund and go to the Gefle Metal Festival (pictured above during the 2017 Krisiun set) to see Primordial, Dark Tranquillity, Dimmu Borgir, Ministry, Flotsam & Jetsam, and Satyricon? I’ve seen all of these bands before (except Primordial but I will be seeing them in the Czech Republic this summer), and I’ve been to Gävle, Sweden twice, but I love them all and would love to see them all again.

Or should I fly across the North Sea to see two of my top five favorite bands–Neurosis and YOB–in London? I’ve only been to London once, but I’ve seen Neurosis and YOB many times.

The deciding factor could be who grants me a photo pass…

Warrel Dane’s birthday

Sanctuary @ 2017 Gefle Metal Festival

Today’s photo was taken a few months before Warrel died. Sanctuary has continued to tour since his death. I hear a new album is in the works, although it may be 2020 before it hits the shelves.

There are also rumors that Sanctuary will be touring with a setlist that includes all of Refuge Denied. That will be awesome.

Ghost @ Getaway Festival (July 7, 2011)

Today’s photo comes from the second time I saw Ghost, and this was one of their first 20 or so shows ever. I can see them again, with Metallica, this summer in Copenhagen, but I will opt for the Metal Magic Festival instead.

Copenhell drops 10 more names

Kreator @ Copenhell

@copenhell #copenhell2018 @kreator #kreator #copenhell2019

Copenhell added 10 bands to the 2019 lineup this morning. The bad news is no Behemoth or Death Angel. They still have about 10 more bands to announce though. Fingers crossed.

The good news is that I’ll be seeing Slægt, not once, not twice, but three times this summer! Slægt is also playing Metal Magic and Brutal Assault.

A few bands I never thought I’d see were also added including Glenn Hughes (doing an early Deep Purple set), Pretty Maids (a Danish band that my best friend in high school got me into more than 30 years ago with their “Future World” album), and Katatonia.

Alien Force @ 2018 Metal Magic Festival

Alien Force

@MetalMagicDK #alienForce #metalMagic

One of my favorite things about festivals is discovering bands I would have never happened upon otherwise. Also, one can see bands that have never made it out of their home country–bands that can never be seen in the USA. Such was the case in 2018 with Alien Force at Metal Magic. Even though Alien Force’s albums came out in my heyday (1985 and 1986) they never hit my radar (unlike other Danish bands from that era like Mercyful Fate and Artillery).

I really got into them in the months leading up to the festival, and their live show did not disappoint.
