immolation are playing mörkaste smaland in a few days…

…but unfortunately I will not be able to attend. Sad face emoji. Yeah, it’s a bummer, as the Immolation guys are some of the coolest guys in a band I have met (at Eistnaflug 2015).

In the meantime, check out this interview from Impact that’s less than a week fresh or catch the band on the few remaining dates of the current European tour with Melechesh abd Azarath.

implore and vallenfyre viewed and reviewed, next up belphegor and co

Last night I made the long journey from Sweden to Denmark to witness to the glory that Implore and Vallenfyre delivered at Pumpehuset.

It was pretty quiet when I arrived, just as Implore were starting. The attendance was pretty low throughout the evening, it being Wednesday and all, but both bands delivered a good show nonetheless, so much so that felt more like the first date on tour rather then the last.

Implore. The unknown child of Entombed and Repulsion? An over simplification? Could be, the band is all over the place musicwise and trying to lump them in any one genre is impossible. They did their shit well, were really tight and looked like they were having a very good time on stage.

When Vallenfyre came on stage the beer was flowing and the stage covered in smoke. Whereas Implored captured the audience with it’s grinding speed, Vallenfyre floored everyone with the insane heavyness delivered. The band delivered both in music and banter, giving the people no rest, but still a few handy tips on where to, or not to, wine and dine in Copenhagen.

So, what next? I don’t know about you but I am going to see Belphegor, Svart Crown, Enthroned and NervoChaos in a week. I think that’s going to be a Thursday well spent!

tickets secured for vallenfyre gig

It is time to celebrate! In two days Andfari will be seeing the glorious Vallenfyre at Copenhagen’s Pumpehuset.

Joining them that night will be their Century Media labelmates Implore. It’s a band I am unfamiliar with but I have two days to get my shit together.

naðra confirmed for next year’s inferno

Norway’s Inferno Metal Festival announced three additions to next year’s line up today.

The Swedish death metal machine Grave, the Dutch avantgarde black metal maestros Dodecahedron and last, but not least, Iceland’s brightest black metal star, Naðra.

Which means the number of Icelandic bands announced is up to two, with Auðn already having been announced.

Can the Inferno crew beat last year’s number? Do they want to? Only time will tell.

the funeral of myrkur and chelsea wolfe

The band / project / person so many seem to hate. Denmark’s very own daughter of darkness.

Myrkur’s second album is out in a few days through Relapse and here we have a very nice preview.

Oh, and if you are in Copenhagen in december you can catch Myrkur with Sólstafir and Árstíðir at Pumpethuset. Good times.
