Today’s agenda

Krisiun @ 2017 Gefle Metal Festival

#geflemetalfestival #geflemetal @Krisiun #brutalAssault2019 #brutalassault @metalchurchis1

Followed by Sacred Reich, Metal Church (for the first time since July 2, 1987* at the Omni in Oakland, California!), Kampfar, Windhand, and more.

* If you would have told me 32 years and a month ago that I would see Metal Church next in over 32 years, in the Czech Republic no less, my mind would have exploded. Back in 1987 the Czech Republic didn’t even exist. Back then it was Czechoslovakia and part of the Soviet Union. Boy do I feel old…

Satyricon in Sweden

Satyricon @ 2019 Gefle Metal Festival

@satyricon #geflemetalfestival

Perhaps my favorite experience at 2018 Copenhell was Satyricon. So I was excited to see that I would get to see them again so soon at the 2019 Gefle Metal Festival. Sometimes the second time seeing a band after just a year can be disappointing. Such was not the case with Satyricon. If anything, I enjoyed their performance in Gävle even more.

I like how today’s photo came out with the Swedish colors of blue and yellow.

Most of the time when a Scandinavian band plays in another Scandinavian country they speak to the audience in English. Such was the case with Dimmu Borgir on the following night. However, Satyr, pictured above, spoke a lot between songs, and he did so all in Swedish.

Metal Monday

Deströyer 666 @ Gefle Metal Festival

I haven’t looked at more than a few of my (1,500+) photos from the 2019 Gefle Metal Festival yet, but here is one from a couple years ago.

Jo Quail @ 2019 Gefle Metal Festival

Jo Quail @ 2019 Gefle Metal Festival


I was supposed to see MYRKUR again this summer, twice. However, she is pregnant and has cancelled her shows. Jo Quail took her spot at the Gefle Metal Festival this past weekend. KADAVAR is her replacement at Brutal Assault, but I may miss them due to a time conflict with Hypocrisy and Cult of Luna. I love all three bands so it will be hard to choose. Maybe all of Hypocrisy and a bit of the other two, as I haven’t seen Hypocrisy before.

Anyway, back to Jo Quail. Her music is wonderful, looping, hypnotic soundscapes that I quite enjoy. I don’t understand why more metal bands don’t have someone on a cello. I’m pretty sure this was the second time I’ve seen Jo Quail. I think she was on the cello when MYRKUR did her softer set at 2018 Roskilde Festival on the Gloria Stage.

I kind of wish they had swapped her spot with Primordial, but then I wouldn’t have been able to see Night Crowned so it all worked out.

Black metal afternoon

#geflemetalfestival #valkyrja #geflemetal2019 #blackmetal

Valkyrja goes on at 13:35 with the sun shining brightly on them. Hmmmmm….

*** update: I preblogged the above before going to Sweden as I went without my laptop. SAS bumped Primordial off the plane they had tickets for so they couldn’t play on Friday. Valkyrja took Primodial’s spot on Friday in the evening and Primordial got stuck with the sun spot on Saturday. Photos from both sets coming here soon.
