Amorphis - Rock Café, Tallinn, Estonia, 09.10.2014 25.10

If nothing else, it would've made for a fine evening out, despite the lecture at 8 the following morning. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Euronymous made a mistake in the track list of Burzum's self-titled debut and typed up "Ea, Lord Of The Deeps" instead of "Ea, Lord Of The Depths". Also in the lyrics for "Feeble Screams From Forests Unknown" he typed up "The Hopeless Soul Keeps Waiting" instead of "The Hopeless Soul Keeps Mating". And in "My Journey To The Stars" (in the first line) "I materialize..." instead of "I immaterialize...".
