Kamelot (+Delain, Battle Beast) – The Shadow Tour North America (Silver Spring, New York City, Clifton Park)

I've been following various bands across Europe for many years now and have visited many different countries this way, most of them more than once. By doing so, I was never able to bring up the financial means to travel to another continent, since I spent every cent on European roads. At some point, I … Continue reading Kamelot (+Delain, Battle Beast) – The Shadow Tour North America (Silver Spring, New York City, Clifton Park)

Certainly … Continue reading Carach Angren, Rotting Christ – Rituals Amongst The Rotten (Kulturpalast Hamburg, Musik & Frieden Berlin)

A weekend in London (Scar Symmetry, Vuur, Damnation Angels, Mastodon) 

A diary for one of the better weekends of this year, concert venue hopping included! The planning London or Utrecht? That was the only question for me when Scar Symmetry (melodic death / modern / progressive metal from Sweden) announced their co-headliner shows with Vuur (progressive metal from the Netherlands). Because I hadn't seen them … Continue reading A weekend in London (Scar Symmetry, Vuur, Damnation Angels, Mastodon)
