Happy birthday, Messiah Marcolin!

Amon Amarth @ 2017 Gefle Metal Festival with Messiah Marcolin of Candlemass

Having been a fan of Candlemass since the late 1980s, I was a bit disappointed to see them for the first time (at Copenhell in 2017) without Messiah Marcolin. I know, Messiah wasn’t the lead singer on their most famous album, but he still was Candlemass in my mind. A few weeks later I was shocked to finally get to see Messiah, as a one-off surprise with Amon Amarth at Gefle Metal Festival. They performed Hel off of “Deceiver of the Gods”.

The magic didn’t stop there. A couple days later I was offered a ride to Stockholm by Johan Hegg’s former girlfriend, and a couple years later I stood next to Johan during Dark Tranquillity’s set at Gefle Metal Festival.

There will be no Gefle Metal Festival for me in 2020 as the days conflict with the Metal Magic Festival.

12 more bands were just announced for next year’s Brutal Assault Festival. I’ve always wanted to see Devin Townsend so this will be a first timer. Uada, Bloodbath, Sacred Reich, Soen, Mayhem, and Venom are welcome additions.

Happy Halloween

One of my favorite things as a kid was listening to the radio on the night of Halloween while going through my recently acquired candy stash. Instead of hearing The Eagles or Boston for the millionth time, the stations would feature “scarier” tracks on Halloween evening. For instance, I can remember on the Halloween, just a week after my 14th birthday, hearing “The Number of the Beast” on the radio for the first time. That song remains a favorite, 37 years later, and Halloween continues to be my favorite holiday.

Happy birthday, Galder!
