Mortuary Drape in StockholmOn November 2nd, the Saturday just after Halloween, historic Italian black metal band Mortuary Drape holds a concert in Stockholm with the support of Black Oath: I must absolutely go. The concert takes place in the basement of a pub called “Liffey”, which is located at the heart of Stockholm; this cellar has been made into a place for concerts, also called “Pussy a go go”, which is really nice, but unfortunately very small and cramped and with a very bad acoustics. In principle, I do not love to see concerts in such small places because shows are usually penalized. But that’s it, I go to the concert; on my way to “Liffey” I see a lot of people with Halloween masks and dressing-ups going out to parties or discos, but I'm not, a black metal concert is more interesting and I'm happy. So when I arrive I find a few friends and immediately meet bassist SC and singer Wildness Perversion, the founder of Mortuary Drape, with whom I entertain a nice convMortuary Drape in Stockholm by *herjansauga
Finntroll Blodsvept Release PartyLocation: Underground, Cologne, GermanyFinntroll Blodsvept Release Party by *Funkenkobold
Support: Killfloor Mechanic + Keep of Kalessin
On the 11th May I went to the Finntroll - Blodsvept Release Party in Cologne.
I was pretty surprised by the fact, that this concert wasn't in Essen or Oberhausen as it is common for metal concerts in North-Rhine-Westphalia !
Before the concert began I dressed up and made a troll paint for my face, which was one of only three at the concert.
The location was easy to find, because several train stations where close to it. Also the location wasn't far away
I was so excited that my stomach hurt, which never happenend before.
I meet some internet mates, which was quite funny and I'm really happy that I spent the concert with them.
When the show began I felt lucky, because I was standing in the first row
Killfloor Mechanic wasn't my cup of tea, but Keep of Kalessin really made me move ! They're show was good and the audience's ice was melted.

His first album was Judas Priest's "Sad Wings of Destiny". After that he sought bands with that had the "True Sound" of the style. By 16 he was in and out of small local bands that didn't live up to his standards. 5 years of garage bands that rode the Nirvana boat he gave up trying to find a band that'd work with him and decided to start his own.

Metal Rebel: A Heavy-Metal-PoemMETAL REBELMetal Rebel: A Heavy-Metal-Poem by ~somniumsanguinis
I wanna be a Metal Rebel
I wanna be pure Rock and Roll!
I wanna sell my filthy soul,
I wanna play in red flamed hell!
Hear my guitar playin' loud as explosion,
hear my heart knockin' for this vision.
See me stayin' in red blood,
see me swimmin' in the mud.
This is the birth of new bad times,
this is the age of never-ending crimes.
This is my creed
the Devil to feed.
This path I follow now
will not allow
that I fight against the lying light destroying my life
and ignorance bites like ice and cuts like a knife!
Let me rockin', let me be!
Then I will surely see
an end of slavery for lies,
and end of tears and cries!
I wanna shout out what's going wrong,
I wanna hate people hating me too,
I wanna go my soul's way along,
I wanna get a life called "number two"!
Let me be a Metal Rebel,
a follower of hardest music sound!
I wanna go the hottest hell
for healing passion's wound!
