Saw Napalm Death and Wormrot last night. I'm suffering the fucking consequences today but fuck it, if there's a mosh pit, I'm in - 51 years be buggered!

First up was Cuck, a band from Dunedin (the biggest city south of Christchurch). Noisy and loose as fuck, and lots of fun!

And them Wormrot. Just fucking amazing! I was front and centre, parked in front of the drummer (I could feel the air coming out of his bass drum). He's just so fucking good! Amazing sound, amazing pit, it just fucking went off! The singer went for a stage dive a couple of times, which I hadn't seen for years.

And then Napalm Death were just another level of awesome on top of that. Barney just looks so unlikely to be the singer in this band. He's all arms and legs flailing all over the place, but just absolutely roars his way through their songs. His between song banter is highly political and a bit geeky, but he really engages a crowd. And I got to shake hands with him at the end. Shane, Mitch and Danny are just so fucking tight, and all three are awesome to just stand there and watch.

Anyway, I'm deaf as fuck, sore, and have a headache. Fuck it was good!Cool

Boy am I fucking pickled right now! Had about 3 cosmopolitans and have been downing shots afterwards ever since! Must've drained a good chunk of a 1.75 liter bottle of vodka already. I think it's safe to say sleep will come easy for me tonight(which is good, cause I'm an insomniac).

Election day today! Can't legally express political opinions online on election day, but most people are predicting a change of government.

Just went and voted and it was so easy and quick. I wish it was the same for everyone else around the world.

Yeah I´m always hearing all sorts of horrible election day stories from around the world, with murders, bombs, threats, and of course election cheating, and therefore praise the fact that I actually live in a "real" democracy, with protected rights and a well functioning legal system.

Wish we were having a general election. 13 years of the Tory shitshow have brought this Country to its knees.

Our government has swung back to the right, but it's still well to the left of the UK tories and the US Democrats.

I went to see Lord Dying yesterday in Copenhagen, at one of the smallest venues I´ve yet been to. I think there was maybe 60-70 people tops in the audience and the room was relatively packed...so yeah it was a very small venue.

The bill was:

Lord Dying
Blind Monarch
Cestode

I didn´t see Cestode, but entered the venue halfway through Blind Monarch set, and they were great live. Ultra heavy doom/sludge metal with a screaming frontman. The scene was so small that he performed on the floor among the audience. Lord Dying was incredible. I´ve seen them once before, but I don´t really know much of their music, but they are a great live band. My and me mate had a talk with the drummer after the show, because we had tell him how great we thought he played. What a fantastic drummer that one.

So it was a nice show and I´ll definitely go see Lord Dying again if they come to Denmark.

The only downside is that today I have the most ridiculous hangover. The room is spinning and I´m not sure the content of my stomach will stay where it is. Holy shit...the amount of beers and drinks that went down my throat last night will sometime in the future be called legendary...

Well shit. Just watched the rugby world cup final. Well done South Africa, but what a shit-awful game! The rules of rugby are completely fucked at the moment, and referee interpretations have too much influence on the game.

Still, the All Blacks weren't expected to get anywhere near the final, so there's that. Bring on the next World Cup!

I´m in a place right now in my life, where my children don´t need me much anymore. They live their own lives and I just make sure they get their clothes washed and cook for them, but other than that I seldom see them, so I have quite a bit of freetime on my hands, and as I´ve always loved going to concerts and football games and drinking beers, I´m doing that with increased intensity. Some people my age buy a sportscar and fuck the secretary....I just want to drink beers and hear some good music LOL.

Gotta say, I'm pretty excited for the upcoming new JP album:
I've already heard the two singles from it so far and was impressed. Can't Wait!

A mate had a spare ticket for Greta Van Fleet. Not a band I knew too much about although I have the 2021 album. Really good show and a surprisingly diverse audience even for a rock show.

^I´ve only read about them and heard a few tracks. Aren´t they like the contemporary version of Led Zeppelin or something like that?

Pretty unapologetic with their influences. Throw in a bit of Rush and you're close Wink I must admit though, I really enjoyed them.

I wouldn't call myself a fan of Greta Van Fleet personally but they seem okay from what I've heard. My family in the US are big fans but my Dad can't stand them and absolutely vehemently refutes any comparison to Led Zep. Tongue

I´m maybe going to see Dawn of Demise tonight, but it´ll be a last minute decision, and hopefully if it happens there are still tickets to buy.
