Amon Amarth @ 2017 Gefle Metal Festival

gefle metal festival amon amarth

Amon Amarth about to hit the stage at the 2017 Gefle Metal Festival

@AmonAmarthBand #JOMSVIKING #geflemetalfestival #geflemetal

A little over nine years after seeing Amon Amarth for the first time, in Sweden, I was fortunate to see them again. They put on a bigger and better performance every time I go to one of their shows. It’s safe to say that the crowd was larger and more into Amon Amarth than for anyone else at this year’s Gefle Metal Festival.

Coincidentally, I was staying at an Airbnb in Gavle and someone formerly affiliated with the band happened to be staying there too. This person offered me a ride back to Stockholm after the festival. On that car ride south to Stockholm we passed a car with a Negative Self bumper sticker on it. That reminded me that I met a couple of guys at the festival (in bandanas in the front row for Testament) who said they were big fans of Negative Self and who encouraged me to check them out. I emailed them to see if it was them we passed and it was! A small world indeed.
