Epica + Kells + ReVamp in Stockholm 26/9 2010 – concert review

Arriving at 16:00, three hours before the show, Stina and I considered ourselves pretty late, often waiting for at least four hours for most shows, but we also noticed the line being exceptionally short, with only five or so people before us (the gang just ahead of us had waited for two and a half […]

Monty Python live at the Hollywood Bowl (1982)

 In 1982, Monty Python filmed a concert performed at the Hollywood Bowl, a concert with a perfect mix of their most famous sketches as well as new material written especially for the concert.It’s  a show with some of my absolute favorite sketches, including the Lumberjack Song, the Ministry of Silly Walks and Nudge Nudge, and […]

Sonata Arctica fallback

After barely listening to one of my top favorite bands ever, Finnish power metal Sonata Arctica, for almost half a year, I’ve fallen back again – ofcourse resulting in listening to them almost exclusively. Especially their latest album Unia (2007) has caught my attention, and it all started as I heard the bonus track ”Out […]

Sonata Arctica live 31/10 2008

Things are getting more and more certain that I’ll see Finnish progressive power metal act Sonata Arctica live at the 31:st of October this year, in Huskvarna, Sweden. I’ve never seen them live before, but I know people who have and they’re supposed to be a great live band. Wish me luck. Things are getting […]

Nightwish – Tavastia bootleg

Sandra just sent me Nightwish’ unofficial Tavastia bootleg, a twenty song live recording from September 26, 2007 – their second concert with Anette. A great set of songs, great sound and all! It also featured how the band was given the Platinum Awards for their Dark Passion Play album. It’s great to hear Anette sing […]

Can it Be Better?

Okay, I’m sick, but it seems like it does have pros! I just got the films I ordered from CDON.com! The first film is Joel Schumacher’s 2004 film based upon Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece musical with the same name; The Phantom of the Opera! The other film is a filmed concert with symphonic power metal […]

Kamelot – Ghost Opera

On June 5, 2007, American power metal band Kamelot released their eight studio album entitled ”Ghost Opera”. I downloaded (I am ashamed, please forgive me) the album the same summer. Since I first heard Kamelot (with first loves like ”The Haunting (Somewhere in Time)” and ”The Black Halo”) in the summer of 2006, I’ve loved […]

Concert Review: Nightwish 4/12 -07

On the 4th of December this year I saw one of my absolute favorite bands, symphonic power metal quartet Nightwish, live as they performed in Stockholm during their Dark Passion Play tour. This was definitely the greatest concert I’ve been to; before, I’ve seen Within Temptation (April 21, 2007) and some minor, Swedish bands, mostly […]
