My COVID-19 contamination came from being on board an away game fan bus to see my local football team play. It was one hell of a drunken ride and game, but half the bus caught the virus, so it was probably one of the most contagious variations. It was back on late 2021. I haven´t caught it since, which is a blessing since I already have issues with my lungs, and the COVID thing defnitely didn´t make things better.

...but yeah of course an Obituary show was worth the pain...duh Big smile

So I ended up going to the show yesterday. 100% old school death metal fest. I didn´t see the first band, but Malformed were good, and both Gorephilia and Undergang were really great.

I was just thinking...I have to wonder how many metal heads hate on something because they legitimately don't like it vs. how many hate on something because everyone else does too(a.k.a. "herd mentality") and don't know how to fucking think for themselves. Now, to be fair, I've been guilty of the latter myself...but I also grew the fuck up! Just hoping more people are like the former and not the latter.

I try not to hate on artists and their releases, but there are of course some I don´t appreciate. I don´t think I hate just to hate or because someone else hates something. But then again I´m old...and I was probably worse when I was younger (and thought I was wiser LOL).

Just purchased tickets to this show:

https://pumpehuset.dk/koncerter/cynic-obscura/

Cynic
Obscura
Cryptosis

....not a bad lineup.

The same week just a few days before I´ll go see:

https://pumpehuset.dk/koncerter/cattle-decapitation/

Cattle Decapitation
Signs of The Swarm
200 Stab Wounds
Vomit Forth

But before those two shows happen I´m going to see:

https://pumpehuset.dk/koncerter/suffocation-2/

Suffocation
Sanguisugabogg
Enterprise Earth
Organectomy

So the next couple of months are lined up pretty well, but who knows...I may find something in between.

Sorry to hear that, I hope you get better soon.

I´ve been suffering from a cough (irritation when I lay down the coughing starts) for at least a month now, which is killing me because I have asthma, so I know how horrible it is to have a cough (I´m pretty sure it´s a common virus which has been around in Denmark for the last couple of months). My general healt has been in decline for a couple of years now and I´m going through all sorts of scans and hospital visits to determine what is wrong. They haven´t found out anything yet (....well other than I don´t have cancer in my brain or in my spine). I´ve had both a CT and an MR scan, and thirsday next week I´m getting a PET scan...so at least they are thourough Big smile

^Glad to hear, hope you see some improvements! Just found out my sickness is the flu so I basically just have to let it run its course. At least now I know what the heck is going on lol.

Viruses are a bitch because there´s no cure or relief, but as you say at least you know that it´s just time and agony until it´s over. It´s nothing more serious than that.

I went to a gig last night and watched these two bands play:

http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/artist/chronicle/?ac=chronicle
http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/artist/dysgnostic/?ac=dysg

It´s not often enough I go see Danish underground death metal acts play and this show cost only 100 Danish Kroner (around $14/15).

I liked Chronicle which was melodic death metal influenced by The Black Dahlia Murder (at least that´s how I heard it), but Dysgnostic was a bit too much for me with their almost clone Ulcerate dissonant technical death metal style. They were arguably a skilled band but that type of music soon becomes chaos on my ears in at live environment.

Still an overall good quality show, in a very small venue, giving both the guitarist and the bassist of Chronicle the opportunity to go out among the audience and play. The guitarist even went to the bar at the back of the room and played from there for a few seconds. Nice little touch.

^ Good that you have these gigs to go to in your area Jonas. Rare that we get any death metal bands coming anywhere near where I live. Last one was Obituary at Newcastle last September which is about 40 miles away. Awesome gig though.

So last night travelled across the Pennines to Leeds to see a Judas Priest / Saxon / Uriah Heep line-up. Bands I've seen before but not recently. Despite all three recently releasing really strong records, I was a little dubious gven all three artists are based around characters well into their 70s. Well the headbanging and stage acrobatics had been scaled back, but all three bands were superb, instrumentally and vocally. What a cracking night Thumbs Up

Great Cattle Decapitation show last night. Wow they are such a powerful and commanding act on a stage. I saw two out of the three support acts. I missed Vomit, but I saw 200 Stab Wounds and Signs of the Swarm.

Those who know my tastes of course can understand why I wasn´t too impressed by the latter while I loved the former.

I´ve seen Cynic once before, and Iiked them better the first tome around. I think their music gets a bit muddy live. Obscura were great. I´ve seen them before too, but I liked this show better than the first one I was some years back. Cryptisis were great live. A power trio and a very energetic frontman/guitarist.
