High on Fire @ 2017 Roskilde Festival

@COPENHELL #copenhell #copenhell2019 @HighonFireBand @orangefeeling ‏#rf17 @eOneheavy

High on Fire is scheduled to play on June 23 in France. No other European dates have been announced yet, but I’m really hoping they get added to the 2019 Copenhell bill. I’m doubtful, though, as their January tour was just cancelled due to health issues. Hopefully, Matt gets better soon.

I was fortunate to see Red Fang, again, a few weeks back at the HiFi Music Hall in Eugene, Oregon as I happened to be there when they were. I don’t have any photos from that show, but here is one from a couple years back in Denmark.

Happy birthday, Amalie Bruun!

I’m thinking about hitting a festival I’ve never been to before in 2019. The Brutal Assault Festival is held at an 18th-century fortress in the Czech Republic in August each year.

The lineup for 2019 is really nice so far and includes Meshuggah, Metal Church, Testament, Anathema, Carcass, Emperor, and Windhand. Tickets are available here.

Happy birthday, Dave Edwardson!

Born exactly two months after I was, and possibly at the same hospital (assuming he was born in the east bay), seeing Dave Edwardson walk though the crowd at Copenhell on warm-up day six months ago on his way to the backstage area made me realize it was going to be an awesome day (despite my jet lag).

I would love to see Neurosis do a European tour in July next year.

Circle of Life … or something

Clutch @ 2018 Roskilde Festival

@COPENHELL #copenhell #rf18 @orangefeeling #clutch #roskildefestival @clutchofficial

Clutch is one of the more recent bands that have been added to the 2019 Copenhell lineup. But that’s not where my history with Clutch begins. Earlier this year they played at Roskilde Festival on one of the more enjoyable and memorable evenings of my existence (in part because of the company I was with, Dark Tranquillity being one of my favorite bands, and being blown away by seeing NIN for the first time). But that’s not where the story begins either…

Way back in 2008 we were headed to Copenhagen for me to teach at Copenhagen Business School for the first time. (2019 will be my sixth time in twelve years.) Copenhell didn’t exist yet, and I had never heard of the Roskilde Festival so I didn’t go (which is sad because many great bands played that year including Neil Young, Judas Priest, Radiohead, At The Gates, Slayer, Dengue Fever, and Black Mountain). Anyway, as we were queued up in an airport line in the USA to check our bags to Copenhagen it was obvious that we were in line right behind a band as they had all of their gear, etc. I asked them who they were, and they told me they were Clutch. I had never heard of them before. They were going to play at that same 2008 Roskilde Festival. Seeing them live, for the first time, 10 years later at the very same festival was serendipity or ironic or something.
