Tomorrow I’ll be in Gothenburg to see doom metal legends SAINT VITUS(!!!) at Truckstop Alaska. Can’t wait…

I’ve been listening to Saint Vitus for about three years, a rather short time in comparison to a lot of die hard Saint Vitus fans. But still they’ve grown on me to become a band that I find myself listening to really often, a reliable source of joy. I imagine it’s going to feel quite grand to actually see them live.

I believe in miracles
I don’t believe in sin
I believe in wizardry
I don’t believe in trends

Every time I’m on the street 
People laugh and point at me 
They talk about my length of hair 
And the out of date clothes I wear

Black metal tip:  

Woods of Desolation, from their 2011 release ”Torn beyond Reason”

Download– To Mega Therion (1985)

Todays entertainment, proletarian literature by swedish writer Fogelström and Celtic Frost. Or to be more precise ”To Mega Therion” their debut album. Heavier, more consistent and more riff laden than most about everything else that was being spat out at the time. A landmark of sorts you might say. Thrash metal with a touch of something a bit more darker, almost black metal sounding.  The album cover was painted by swiss surrealist painter H.R Giger , apart from painting the mostrosity that would become the Alien in the movie by the same title, he’s also painted album covers for Emerson Lake and Palmer amongst others.

In contradiction to me really liking this album, I have a lot of bad memories tied to it. For example being accidently hit over the head with an empty beer bottle at a garage concert and passing out whilst ”Jewel Throne” was being played in the background.

Track of the day: Bliss by Blues Pills, upcoming band check them out!

Harmony Dies

Download Part 1, Part 2– Possessed (1985)

VENOM, ist krieg. 4th album fittingly named Possessed. Sounds like somebodys smashing up a junkyard… harmony dies. My own favourite in the Venom discography, a discography that contains a lot of good and a lot of bad. I read recently that Cronos, the singer, has gotten himself addicted to heroin over the last years – sad but not surprising? He looks a bit weary now a days.

I made a spontanious trip to Norrköping a few days ago with Hannes and Anna to meet up with our friends in Mamont to see Graveyard perform a live show, for free! Turned out the show was for some sort of festival and we had missed Year of the Goat who played a couple of hours before Graveyard.. After the Gravyard gig we drank the last of our beer and went on a bar stroll that seemed to last forever, since we had nowhere to sleep we ended up in a underground club called ”Blå Rummet” if i recall the name correctly, the guys from Skraekoedlan had taken control of the dj booth. Only bad thing was that we didn’t have any place to sleep. The night/morning ended with me falling of a window at the train station where I had crept up to try to get some sleep. I felt pretty mashed up when we finally got home to Örebro.

I’m ending this set of blurry photos with a pic of this most awesome Jofama mc jacket I’ve gotten my hands on! Mint condition, made in the 70’s in Malung and it’s never been used before, fits me like a glove.

Download– 3 (1971)

American hard rock from the 70’s. At certain points it doesn’t sound to different from Uriah Heep. As the title might suggest this is Bloodrock’s third effort. A dandy rocker packed to the limit with heavy moments. Escpecially the second track on the first side called ”Whisky Vengeance” and the almost doom metal sounding first track ”Breach of Lease” on the second side comes to mind! Still the album doesn’t lack in funky jams.

This is a very good and talented friend of mine called Anton ”Sundelliluran” Sundell! In fact he is so talanted that he gets to do the effects on Witchcraft‘s upcoming fourth album. One of my favourite bands. He’s also got his own band called Åtgärdslandet, I’ve blogged about them before. You can check them out at soundcloud or contact me if you want a copy of their ep. They’ll soon put out some more material.

And raggare is still a bunch of MOTHER FUCKERS!

the pin was made by a small enterprise called ”Bastardized” run by swedish punksters Nitad. Sundelliluran had a hole bunch of them.

Track of the day: Flytrap by Venom
