September 15 – Aaaaand goodbye summer!

Can’t believe this ride is already over, what a blast it has been.
Did another two festivals with Eluveitie, got to work at the annual Meh Suff! in Zurich (Mostly running monitors, but also mixing a few bands at FOH… Aborted coming through there was fun!), then did my last show with Aborted at Doomstar’s Bloodshed Fest in Eindhoven, and tracked drums for an upcoming single release with Norvhar. Times are flying, but I thoroughly enjoy all of this!

August 29 – New video premiere!

The gents in Akantha just release a new video through HxC World Wide, check out the clip to the song «Welcome To Hell» right here:

The upcoming EP was partially tracked by me, plus I did the reamping/mix/master. Killer project, glad to have been involved!

August 28, 2019  – Where did the summer go??

Geez, it’s been a month already since my last post? I see a pattern, damn!
Not like I haven’t been busy, so at least there’s that. Festival/Club-shows with Eluveitie, Cult Of Luna and Aborted went down, from Oya/Norway, over Wacken/Germany to Sylak/France and back again… Can’t complain, and it’s gonna come to a full stop pretty soon. Until then, here’s a batch of pictures from these shows!

July 29, 2019 – Off-shows w/ Aborted

Freshly back from a few off-shows with Aborted, plus a festival on Saturday – This was a sweaty week under the sign of no-AC-venues, can’t believe this is a thing in the summer… Plus we finished the quick run with a show at what has to be one of the worst festivals ever, Stonehenge in Steenwijk/NL. What matters is that we made it, but good lord… The amount of work that had to be put in it was definitely overwhelming.

July 22, 2019 – Rock Maraton/HU (w/ Aborted) & Les Georges-Festival/CH (Fribourg)

Another then day or so into this summer, and the speed of things just isn’t dropping:
Spent a day or so in Hungary, doing a one off with Aborted…


FOH after the very last blast beat. Good times.

After that, I spent a week at Les Georges-Festival in Fribourg/CH, overlooking six days of great shows in quite the unique spot.

July 7, 2019 – Resurrection Fest/Viveiro, ES (Cult Of Luna)

A single show for a weekend is a slow rhythm by any standards, but we managed to squeeze some proper beach time out of it, plus the show was killer.

July 1, 2019 – Finland conquered!

Two shows from Cult Of Luna’s Finland-weekend, especially Saturday’s Provinssi festival was highly enjoyable…
