The Hellacopters on their farewell tour at Nosturi last week.

On the previous weekend I was in Lithuania (Kaunas) at Mountainrock Vol 5. The line-up was: Cult of Luna (Sweden), Mannhai (Finland), Mountainside (Lithuania), The Black Tapes (Poland) and Versus (Latvia).

I saw a handful of talented young musicians at my college's open mic night. I sang too!!! 8) I did a duet with my friend Tim singing Cruisin' by Smokey Robinson (or Huey Lewis and the News/Gwyneth Paltrow if you must).

lament from eden (belgrade)- jeebus fucking chrysler. i sooo skipped them.
deadrise (ditto) - their metal is getting better. great mosh stuff.
hitman (ditt) - skip, skip, skip, skiipppp
rise up (sofia) - bulgarian copy of comeback kid. fantastic band!
last hope (sofia) - a bit too whatever-idontlikeitsomuch-core but they put on an amazing performance and we had tons of fun.

wonderful show, all sexes, all ages, no fights or brawls, i hope it stays that way forever.

I saw Mastodon, Trivium and Slayer at Manchester Apollo last night.

Mastodon were alright but not really my cup of tea. Trivium got booed but I thought they were pretty good - reminded me of early Megadeth and Metallica, all great musicians as well. Slayer were awesome - maybe the best I have seen them. They played all the classics, were tight as hell and the sound was immense. The visuals on screen above the stage of war, death, holocaust, upside down crosses, skulls etc were very cool. I missed Amon Amarth though dammit!

This is great news :D ! I'm going to see Slayer in a month, good to hear they are in great shape. Last few times I saw them they seemed kind of tired.

Every time I've seen Slayer they've been in good form! Mastodon's pretty cool, I like all the drum fills, but they don't really hold my attention for too long as a whole.

Bloody freezing last night! Project Hopeless pulled out and there was a replacement band, but i'm not sure who they were. Had some great vegan chocolate cake, which was being sold to raise money for animal rights etc... and picked up some leaflets about consumerism and freeganism. All the bands were pretty good, but missed Warboys cos i had to get the last tube.

Then the trek back to the station in the snow! :shock:

yeah, the drum fills are pretty amazing. They are even better on some the stuff he did with Today is the Day.
