Metal Monday

Sing-along

#geflemetalfestival #geflemetal @OfficialNeurot @neurosisoakland @RelapseRecords @quantumyob @Krisiun

There’s a war going on in my head about what I should do during my last weekend in Copenhagen this summer.

Should I fly across the Øresund and go to the Gefle Metal Festival (pictured above during the 2017 Krisiun set) to see Primordial, Dark Tranquillity, Dimmu Borgir, Ministry, Flotsam & Jetsam, and Satyricon? I’ve seen all of these bands before (except Primordial but I will be seeing them in the Czech Republic this summer), and I’ve been to Gävle, Sweden twice, but I love them all and would love to see them all again.

Or should I fly across the North Sea to see two of my top five favorite bands–Neurosis and YOB–in London? I’ve only been to London once, but I’ve seen Neurosis and YOB many times.

The deciding factor could be who grants me a photo pass…

Pagan Altar, The Room of Shadows

Satyricon, Deep Calleth Upon Deep

For 2019 I’m really looking forward to new Tool and Rammstein (and seeing both bands too).

Happy birthday, Mike Scheidt!

YOB

YOB was amazing, as always, this past Friday night at Eugene’s WOW Hall. They played five of the seven songs on their soon-to-be-released album (Our Raw Heart). The new songs sounded awesome. Hopefully YOB tours Europe while I’m over there this summer.

Yob’s most recent release (2014’s Clearing the Path to Ascend) was named best metal album of the year by Rolling Stone. To be perfectly honest, it is probably the best album of this decade by anyone, period. They played three songs off of it a couple weeks ago in Eugene. That may not sound like much, but the three songs clocked in at over 45 minutes total (and Yob played “Ball of Molten Lead”–another 10+ minute tune–off The Illusion Of Motion as well). I was amazed. The sound was so good. Everything was so tight and perfect. The only “problem” with their set was I used up nearly all of the endorphins my body is capable of producing, leaving myself in a bit of a listless state for Agalloch’s set to follow.

The first time I saw Yob live was 2008 (or early in 2009–I can’t remember) at Ashland’s Stillwater (now Club 66). I’m hoping they return to play Club 66 to a full house one day soon.
