Nyredolk @ 2019 Metal Magic Festival

@MetalMagicDK #nyredolk

Tough to put into words how amazing Nyredolk was at Metal Magic this past July. This video provides a taste but doesn’t come close to providing the meal that being there in the right frame of mind delivered.

Copenhell 2020 band announcement

Magic Bands

@MetalMagicDK @Indisciple @tsunamiagency #ORM @COPENHELL #copenhell #copenhell2020

Copenhell dropped 15 names for next year’s festival today. Bands I’m excited to see include:
Vreid
ORM (pictured above)
Emperor
Judas Priest
Mercyful Fate
Destruction

Bands I’ll be skipping include:
Jinjer
Korn
Disturbed

The last time I saw Judas Priest was in 2009. That was K.K. Downing’s last show with Priest at Loud Park Japan. Sadly, with Glenn Tipton’s health issues, that leaves zero real Judas Priest guitarists in the band.

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.

Happy birthday, Michael Olesen!

Demon Head @ 2019 Metal Magic Festival

#DemonHead @MetalMagicDK @svartrecords

A band that wasn’t on my radar before hearing about the festivals of 2019 was Demon Head. Upon listening, I quickly became a fan and was fortunate enough to see them not once but twice. Unfortunately, they had really bad time slots. At Copenhell they had the earliest show on the final day. Their performance was amazing, but there wasn’t a big crowd, and those in attendance, including myself, were pretty tired. Almost a month later I saw them at Metal Magic, pictured above, well past midnight after the first day of the festival. Brilliant again, the stage seemed a little cramped for all five of them and their props.

If you haven’t heard Demon Head, check them out here–wonderful compositions with clean, haunting vocals. For fans of Black Sabbath, The Doors, High on Fire, and early Judas Priest…
