Copenhell 2023 begins

2023 Copenhell running order

@COPENHELL #copenhell23 @_Kellermensch

I’m not there, but I wish I was. However, this year’s lineup is filled with big names I have no desire to see (Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Parkway Drive, Pantera, Slipknot, and Guns N’ Roses). Still, I would love to see some of the lesser-known acts, feel the vibe, and meet up with old friends. Of the dozen or so bands that I would want to see over the four days, three are playing at the exact same time (see graphic above)! So rather than be frustrated in Copenhagen, I’ll just chill out over 5,000 miles away.

Afsky releases third album today

Om Hundrede År was released today. I’m very excited to absorb this beauty.

Viðareiði Kirkja (Faroe Islands – July 2021)

Today’s photo is best viewed while listening to Afsky. I was listening to Afsky while taking the photo, and then, while processing the photo a couple months later, Afsky magically played randomly off my hard drive (which has about 5,000 songs to choose from–and only about 15 of them are Afsky).

One of the live members of Afsky and I were chatting at Metal Magic a week before this photo was taken. I told him I was going to the Faroe Islands, and he informed me that he had lived there for a while. The music on my phone after Metal Magic was trimmed down to Afsky and bands playing at Josefstadt, so, not surprisingly, I listened to a lot of Afsky while cruising around in my campervan on the Faroe Islands. The two went together perfectly, and now I think of the Faroe Islands when Afsky comes on or Afsky when a random photo of the Faroe Islands shows up as my random, desktop image of the day like this photo did.

“Ved det spejlklare hav, ved det svulmende hav
Grav der min grav!
Ja, giv mig en grav ved det åbne hav”

It’s not uncommon for me to get goosebumps at concerts. But Afsky’s soundcheck at 2021 Metal Magic Festival was the first time I’ve experienced that before the actual performance. I may have even teared up during the soundcheck. And then the actual show, with great sound, lighting, and atmosphere was wow, just wow!
