Only one show in Spain - Pentagram Fest in Valencia!

Sadly we have to inform you that two of our three Spanish shows scheduled for February have been cancelled. This was a decision taken by the local booker due to various reasons and we feel sorry for him and our fans.

However, we will play at the Pentagram Fest in Valencia on Saturday February 12th so if you are around
... don't miss this opportunity to catch some old-school Swedish death metal at this exclusive Spanish massacre!

Black Steel Worship Tour - Part III

Finally! Here is the last part of the tour, enjoy or fuck off!
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...

Kawarna - Slavonice, CZE 3/12 2010: 
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!

Festung - Bitterfeld, GER 4/12 2010:
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.

Revel In Flesh!
After the soundcheck we ate a delicious beef stew with potatoes and then it was time for a couple of vodka/cola drinks before the gig. Leif was in the building again! The gig was a supreme armageddon except of that the monitor system on stage were blown up during the fifth song, what the fuck!? We don't know what happened but the vocals was fairly distorted before the monitors were blown out and it was maybe little too load in the monitors. Well, the soundguy was a stand-in for the ordinary soundguy that unfortunately was sick and the new guy wasn't so experienced to do livesound we heard. So what could we do? We continued the show without monitors of course! It was really a blast and a fucking moshpit in front of the stage!

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!

Ja men skåål då pöööjtchaaarrrrrrrrr!!!
Frågor på det??
Blackland - Berlin, GER 5/12 2010:
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.

We had to catch the ferry to Trelleborg, Sweden in the morning but we had plenty of time. The afterparty in the bus wasn't so long this night, probably because it was time to go home and back to reality again and that we had a long trip in front of us through Sweden during the Monday. The poor finnish guys had the longest trip in front of them because they had to take the ferry from Stockholm to Finland early Tuesday morning and be home late in the evening. Everyone came home safetely finally! 

It was a hell of a tour and it was really fun to tour with the motherfuckers from URN and DIABOLICAL! Eternal thanx to our session members Perra Karlsson and Toob Brynedahl for an tremendous job on stage!! We would also like to thanx Dreamtide Music, all organizers and of course all of you who showed up on the gigs and supported us!! Special thanx to the guys from URN, DIABOLICAL, Markus Povelainen for supreme busdriving and Dagna Oczkowska for selling merch like hell!!

Only Leeeeeiiiiifff is real...

Black Steel Worship Tour - Part II

Channel Zero - Ljubljana, SLO 30/11:
It was really nice to sleep in a proper bed and having a descent breakfast for a change. We also took care of this blog finally and AGAIN we missed the load in due a early dinner at Mc Donalds. Well, well, well... the venue was packed with a fucking moshpit as usual and we slaughtered the slovenians! DIABOLICAL did a great show as well but this evening URN made it clear that it was their show because they killed 'em all! We celebrating the evening with some fireworks outside of the venue.

Check out a fucking liveclip from Channel Zero: Infernal Damnation & Infestering Flesh.

Randal Club - Bratislava, SK 1/12:
We arrived to a snowy Bratislava during noon. The hangover was still a fact so we went to the nearest restaurant for some cheesy pizza and Baileys. After the dinner we walked into the city and looking for drumsticks and only after some hours we found the fucking musicstore and drumsticks! We took a cab back to the venue and it was open. Really nice club and it was warm inside. The catering was awesome and the soundguy definitely knew what he was doing because the sound was fucking brutal! It was a kick ass show for all the bands even though it wasn't packed. Yet the afterparty turned into a classic with some really strong drinks and Heavy Metal! Don't mess with the fucking Absinth Black...

Black Steel Worship Tour - Part I

We're sorry for the lame updates but it was expected, anyway here you have the first tour report:

Sugar Bar - Stockholm, SWE 24/11:
We started the travel down to Stockholm from Avesta kind of early in the morning and after the load-in we headed to Systembolaget to buy some good ol' Glögg. The Sugarbar isn't that wellknown to be a Metal club, but it turned out to be a good debut show anyway. It wasn't the biggest stage, but the feeling was very intense and the freaks that turned up really enjoyed the show. Lots of friends and a mighty drinking session followed. The URN and the DIABOLICAL guys are great, so we're really looking forward to these upcoming weeks!

As you can see the hordes of INTERMENT worship their gods!
Bambi Galore - Hamburg, GER 25/11:
After a long drive from Stockholm to Hamburg, through Denmark, we arrived to the venue a bit late. Yet we had no support bands opening for us so after a linecheck we started our set, the show was sick and with great fucking support! Hage from Cyclone Empire and Jan Banan from Sure Shot Worx was there and partying with us. Since it was more or less free drinks in the bar all of us ended up shitfaced. We continued the drinking session for many hours on the way to Tilburg. Frågor på det?!

The Return Of Darkness And Glögg!!

013 - Tilburg, NL 28/11:
We arrived early in the morning to the venue and after a while the tourpackage with GRAVE, MISERY INDEX, ARSIS, THE LAST FELONY and THE ROTTED got there as well with their modern fancy tourbus. This show was a special one, since there were three tours colliding at the same club and day. Besides the above mentioned bands there was also BLACK BREATH. Everything with the club 013 is just PERFECT, certainly one of the best and most organized clubs in Europe. Even if we had a massive hangover the gig went fucking awesome, the huge INTERMENT horde of fans went fucking crazy! Of course we ended up hanging out with our friends in GRAVE at their backstage room, drinking and steaming until they had to leave the building because their bus driver wants to leave early every night. Therefore, we continued the party at the famous Metal pub Little Devil, and made friends with the BLACK BREATH guys. So as you can imagine, we missed the load-out and made the DIABOLICAL members just a little bit pissed off. Life's good!

Another day on the road...

AJZ Bahndamm - Wermelskirchen, GER 27/11:
We all woke up in the cold filthy bus with hangover from hell and after some nice food and beers in the city we loaded in all the stuff (yes, we DID help out with the load-in). Just before our soundcheck Martin couldn't find his bass anywhere so we thought it was lost in Tilburg. So Martin borrowed a bass from Urn for the show. Apparently, our sound was crushing, and we got killer response. The club was really neat and sort of "squaty" and the catering was really awesome. Because it is a Jugendhaus they are not allowed to serve hard booze, only beers and wine, but luckily we got three bottles of booze that saved the evening and night. Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiiffffff!!!!

Decimo Secolo - Brescia, ITA 28/11:
Lost and found: Martin's bass was in the bus!! The venue was at a corner of a big shopping center in the suburb and even though it was a sunday evening quite alot of people showed up. After the local support we entered the stage and delivered! Great response and we even played the Carnage cover this evening! After the show we had to celebrate with some nice and cold Red Bull & Vodkas of course, questions on that? DIABOLICAL and URN had good response as well and all the bands sold alot of merchandise. Then we left Italy for Ljubljana in Slovenia during the night. Torn From The Fucking Leif - Viva Italia!!!

Day Off - Ljubljana, SLO 29/11:
Again we woke up with the hangover from hell in a snowy Ljubljana. After some boring freezing hours in the bus, we decided to check in at a nearby hostel to get a much-needed-hot shower and a nice clean bed. After the shower we went to the city and ate some nice food and of course had plenty of drinks. Just enjoying the day the sun!
