Google och jag

Det är alltid kul att se hur högt bloggen ligger i googlesökningar. Nej, jag sitter inte och googlar själv, men de vanligaste sökningarna som tar folk hit kommer fram genom FireStats. Sökningen ”instuderingsfrågor stormakten” ger plats två till mina instuderingsfrågor från att jag läste historia på gymnasiet, en tre år gammal artikel. Andra sökresultat är […]

Starve like huge poodles free in the rain forest…

…and try to figure out why this has been my most visited post for quite a while now (even ahead of the startpage by 40 % or so). It may simply be the obscure reference in the header leading forth many Poe fans, but I can’t find a lot of her in the general Google […]

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 […]

The Golden Age of Symphonic Metal – Review of Epica's Design Your Universe (2009)

I was born in 1992, and if I could choose I wouldn’t change it for a second. Sure, I was only four when Therion released Theli, considered one of the earliest symphonic metal albums, and I was only six when Nightwish released Oceanborn in 1998, but I have lived to witness the release of many […]

Simone Simons' health

Goddamnit… From Epica’s offical website: ”After having had a couple of weeks of rest we were very much hoping that Simone’s situation would have improved already.

Simone Simons infected with MSRA

Symphonic metal band Epica’s singer Simone Simons is infected with MSRA, a difficultly treated disease, and they have been forced to cancel all the February shows. This is nothing that affects me as I had no plans in seeing them during February, but I’m still worried to death for the sake of this beautiful singer’s […]

My Thoughts Concerning Eva and Nightwish’ Latest Year in General

In 2004, Finnish symphonic power metal band Nightwish released their fifth studio album, Once, leading to a giant world tour. After the last concert, the members of Nightwish wrote an open letter which officially fired the lead singer, Tarja Turunen, leading to a giant debate; the name of Nightwish have become famous because of the […]
