    Definitely highlights for me. There's alot to see. We'll see if Abbath is still alive after his last performance in Argentina lol. Lindemann just happened to be pure luck that they announced a tour whilst we'll be over there. Rage, I've been a fan of for a very long time, and flying to Vienna is the only shot we have whilst there too. We're making it happen.

    Just read about THAT Abbath show and at least it's not as bad as Joe Cocker at Sunbury (I think). He was so wasted he got up on stage took a look at the audience and then turned back.

    PS. I forgot to mention Lindemann as a stand out.

    I seen a picture screenshot from one of the videos I believe, and he either looks really sad or pained. Part of me thinks something has happened in his personal life that tipped him over the edge. I know he has a kid with his ex which is Demonaz's sister. Hopefully I'm reading too much into it.

    Lindemann was lucky. We'd booked a hotel in Berlin that night because we had no plans, so now we go to Munich instead to see them. And in a bizarre twist, Tenacious D is playing Berlin that night instead lol

    Keep an ear out for Tyr coming here. There's tix for a show in Canberra in May with Arkona. I haven't seen any official announcement yet though.

    I've been wanting to finish a certain big Marvel event with a bang and planned on buying Death Angel's Humanicide and Killswitch Engage's Atonement. Then I find out from Loudwire (the day before I purchased them) that these two bands have received Grammy nominations for Best Metal Performance. Speak of the Devil, huh?

    Spooky lol

    The Týr show in Canberra is still on sale, they brought it a day forward to 14th May. I spoke to Heri and he said was supposed to be announced on 2nd December. But Overdrive seems more to be focusing on promoting their closer upcoming gigs. I wanna see if there are more shows. And am planning on seeing them all.

    Oh and I'll be catching Venom Inc this Sunday for their only Aussie show, and it's free heh

    Damn, I was hoping Venom Inc. was a tribute band to Spider-man's nemesis.
