Six weeks from today I’ll be seeing these guys again.

In one month…

Barring some complete screw-ups by the airlines and/or horrible weather, I’ll be in my happy place a month from today. I am scheduled to arrive at 8:50 a.m. in Copenhagen. Neurosis will hit the new-and-improved Pandæmonium stage about 12 hours later.

Metal Monday

Two months until the 2018 Gefle Metal Festival. I won’t be going this year as it conflicts with the 2018 Metal Magic Festival which I will be going to (in its entirety for the first time–I’ve been twice but only for one day before this year).

Festival schedules released

2018 Copenhell schedule

@COPENHELL #copenhell @orangefeeling #RF18

The Roskilde Festival and Copenhell have revealed their detailed schedules for 2018.

Bad news for Roskilde is Skeletonwitch is playing while I’m teaching. I really wanted to see those guys, especially since what I’ve heard from their new album (Devouring Radiant Light) sounds so good. David Byrne is not on the Orange stage. What? That’s weird. Also his set overlaps Myrkur and Watain. I’ll probably skip Myrkur on Friday and just catch Myrkur’s Saturday set. I’ll miss the end of Byrne’s set to see all of Watain.

Copenhell’s schedule (above) has several problems for me. First is how weak the lineup is on Thursday. I could actually skip Thursday and not feel like I missed much. I may end up leaving by 10 p.m. on Thursday. Should I sit around for two hours to wait for Zeal & Ardor? I don’t know.

Friday has two problems. I want to see Orm again, but I don’t want to miss At The Gates or the beginning of the Deftones. I wanted to see Bersaerk but will likely only catch their first song so I don’t miss any of Kreator.

Saturday is filled with problems. Corrosion of Conformity at the same time as Igorrr? Dang, I’ll probably have to leave CoC early to catch a bit of Igorrr. Satyricon at the same time as Alestorm? I’ll probably miss all of Alestorm unfortunately. Tsjuder at the same time as Sodom? I’ll just catch the first Tsjuder song.

Happy birthday, Gary Holt!

Gary Holt of Slayer at 2017 Copenhell

@COPENHELL #copenhell @Slayer

Gary and I both grew up in the East Bay. Ironically, even though I’ve seen him twice, I’ve never seen him play in the USA. I saw him in Copenhagen, with Exodus, in 2008 and then again with Slayer last year (also in Copenhagen). At the end of next month I’ll see him again in Copenhagen, playing guitar for Exodus.

Happy birthday, Johan Hegg!
