Immortal on Tour!


Immortal has announced a North American tour in March 2010. The band comments, "After the fantastic experiences we had in New York and Los Angeles in 2007, we are returning next year, and this time we will make sure we visit our Canadian hordes on the East coast as well! We will see you during Easter 2010, which will be a dark and cold one!"

Immortal's "Blashyrkh In North America 2010" tour dates are as follows::

03.27.10: Toronto, ON - Opera House
03.28.10: Montreal, QC - Metropolis
03.30.10: Brooklyn, NY (18+) - Masonic Temple
04.02.10: Los Angeles, CA -The Avalon

I'm excited! I'll be seeing them in grim and frostbitten Los Angeles :)

Cold Morning Warm Tea

morning tea

As usual I forget to take photos of food when I'm going to eat. Its partially because I want to take nice, artsy photos but I don't have time or good lighting or a million other excuses ^_^

I did see a cool mini studio set up that I plan to get next month. That should make for some cool new photos.

So anyway, I've been a bit sick off and on, so this morning it was a bit chilly and I enjoyed a hot cup of tea to soothe my throat.

If you like atmospheric tribal style music in a loosely similar style to Dead Can Dance, check out Wardruna.

This is a new project from black metalers Kvitrafn and Gaahl with other members.

Very ambient and atmospheric album, meant to be listened to beginning to end....I've been listening to this over and over for the past several days, usually with the lights off and only a small lamp on while I'm working.

Dream: meet reality

Skinny Puppy on Devil's Night

The night before Halloween I saw Skinny Puppy's opening show of their tour. The show was nothing short of amazing. Excellent theatrics, drenched in blood and ohGr wore no less than 3 different masks, which he progressively removed throughout the show.

They played a lot of older material and also Assimilate, which they rarely play.

Awesome night!

Heathenfest! I dig both Belphegor and Kivimets├Ąn Druidi. With all the emphasis on Norwegian/Swedish black metal, it'll be cool to see a black/death metal band from Austria, which is where my family comes from.

On a separate note:
I saw KMFDM this past Saturday. They sucked so I'm not going to bother with an entry. Too bad, their music is so good but they didn't say a single word to the audience except a quick thanks at the end. Its like they were pissed off to be performing.

My friend Kate whored me out for free KMFDM stickers though. If you have a KMFDM tattoo they were giving away free stickers. So I got a bunch and gave some out.
