Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2014 - Denver, CO - 13 Jul 2014

The annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival! Great variety of bands, I always have a blast, it's always fun, the weather is always way too hot and this year's event was almost no exception. Yes, almost no exception; the timing of the festival couldn't be worse and the decision to split the Colorado show into two events didn't help the cause neither.

Amaranthe - American Beauty Car Show, Haapsalu Episcopal Castle, Haapsalu, Estonia, 19.07.2014

Haapsalu is a small and beautiful Estonian resort town by the sea. Each July its quiet is disturbed by an invasion of owners and admirers of the American car industry. Shining cars, roaring engines, burning rubber, cruising, and a drag race on the airfield strip - American Beauty Car Show has got it all. If you're into all that, it's the place to be. Naturally, this also calls for musical entertainment of varied sorts, which somehow managed to grab my attention for the first time with only one name - Amaranthe. Just because I happen to like them.

Klone - Toulouse, 15/10/2010

The Dynamo is a quite new venue here in Toulouse (about 4 months old at the time of the show), and it's a nice one. It can welcome about 300 persons, has a decent sound, is close to the town centre and, a most important detail, boasts a nice selection of beers!
And so we were about to listen to something quite progressive, with Klone touring for their latest opus, and local openers Ethersens.

Ethersens
First show in ages (well, more than one year anyways) for this prog/atmospheric/shoegaze band from Toulouse; they're busy recording their second album but found the time to come and play this evening.

Agalloch - Gothic Theatre, Englewood, USA - 8 Jul 2014

I was out of town two years ago when Agalloch played in Denver the last time, so when I first saw that they were scheduled to play at the Gothic Theatre in Englewood, CO (a suburb of Denver) I was actually rather surprised. Are they really that big? Would the thousand plus capacity venue be largely empty?

Roadburn Festival - Day 4: Afterburner

After 3 days of friends, awesome tunes, and binging on food and merchandise, the 2014 edition of Roadburn Festival was finally drawing to a close with the so-called "Afterburner," the Sunday of the fest. While it was certainly sad to know that the whole occasion was ending, it was definitely exciting as well, as the organizers did seem to take a bit of a "best for last" sort of approach, saving some of my most-anticipated bands for this fourth day.

God Is An Astronaut - Tapper, Tallinn, Estonia, 18.05.2014

Fred walks up the steep and narrow stairs and pulls the door open. Sounds that were muffled a moment before, erupt into background music and people talking on the couches in the bar. He looks at the guy in a red shirt and a baseball cap sitting behind the desk. The bigger guy blocks him from going further in.
