Tirish Pub - Banská Bystrica, SK 2/12 2010:
We arrived as usual early in the morning and Markus parked the stinking and rolling boyroom near the venue in the center while we all were sleeping. Later a cop came and knocked on the door and said that we couldn't stand there so Markus have to pay 10 Euro to him that probably went down directly in his pocket for his daily lunch. Then we had follow the pig to park the bus on a big parking lot nearby instead. Well, shit happens and 10 Euro is nothing. We went for a sightseeing in the city and had a nice Slovakian lunch with soup and hot meal. We bought some cheap vodka and warmed us up with an tasteful Irish Coffee and some Glühwein at a local café. The load in was soon a fact again...
The venue was small but enough to blow the Slovakians away! The support band with the nice name COCK2PUSSY opened with some crazy Grindcore. We delivered as usual and the support was total by all the trve Deathmetal maniacs who were there! After our show it was time again to say: - Ja men skål då pöjtcharrrrrrrr!!! DIABOLICAL and URN delivered as well of course and the afterparty were including double vodka drinks in the bar, challenge at the boxingmachine and Metal on the jukebox! The vodka worshipping continued on the rolling Satanic church to Slavonice during the night...

We woke up in a cold, grey and a very snowy Slavonice. It was friday and we had access to a hot shower on a hostel nearby the venue. That was not a day too late! After the shower it was time for load in and to setup the gear on stage again. The catering and the hot food was awesome and the vodka bottles were on its place backstage. We were all excited for this gig because we heard that many people should come and that the whole gig would be recorded for an Dvd. In the last minute the support band BRUTALLY DECEASED from Prague showed up and did an great show. It was pure Swedish Deathmetal and they were nice guys as well. Then we entered the stage and delivered one of our best shows on this tour! It was total support from the audience and though we played the entire setlist they wanted even more, but we had to end because the schedule was already over time...
DIABOLICAL and URN did both awesome shows and the audience was insane! The whole venue was filled with drunk and fanatic Metal/Hardcore youngsters that was chainsmoking like the last time we were here with DEMONICAL. It was a fucking great afterparty at Kawarna and the party continued in the bus of course!

Saturday! It was cold and snowy but the sun was shining bright when we arrived to the venue that is owned by the "United Metal Maniacs". Really cool venue, awesome crew and well organized! We went directly for some breakfast to the nearest Dönerkebab and it was delicious! Then we went to a supermarket for some coffee/cappuchino before we went to the bus for some hours of sleep until the gloriuos load in.

After the show it was time to do the most important work: tank up!! We were hanging in the bar while DIABOLICAL and URN played and many Redbull and vodkas were poured into our heads. Even our busdriver Markus took some drinks, because this night we decided to stay and sleep over at the venue because they have plenty of beds and it was not so far to the last gig in Berlin the day after. It was the night of the undead and we met some friends that we hanged with. When all bands have played and the people went home we were still hanging in the bar and listened to Metal. Then some of us went to the discobar "The Doors" but it was boring so we went back and continued the party backstage instead. Johan and Toumas (drummer of URN) stayed up the whole morning and drank until it was time to leave Bitterfeld around 10:00... winners and medals around their necks!

Sunday and the last gig on the tour. Sad but fucking true! Well, we arrived to Berlin in the noon and it was breakfast/lunch time. Some of us were still drunk and dizzy and needed some greasy fast food. So we sniffed up a Dönerkebab close to the venue and filled our empty chests with Döner and broiled chicken, worth every cent! Then a bunch took the tram into the center while some of us went to sleep in the bus again. Some of us missed the load in again and it was dark outside when we woke up. Slowly we sneak into the venue and everything was rigged, thanx rowers! Blackland is a nice little club with a small stage but very genial and moderate club.
It was time for the last soundcheck with an overbeared soundguy and a hangover from the deepest hell. Not a good combination but in the end we were agreed. It was a rough day but the only cure was to order a Redbull and vodka and you were back on track again and prepared for the gig. Alot of people showed up and we delivered what they wanted: Swedish Deathmetal!! The show was one of our best and the audience was satisfied of course! Many friends were there and it was an great ending of the tour for us all. Both DIABOLICAL and URN delivered a hellish show! After a bunch of drinks and hanging in the bar with friends and fans it was sadly time for us to load out and leave Berlin.
