5 hiphop guys at a metal concert
« on: October 22, 2006, 12:04:24 AM »
the ending wasnt pretty that's for sure    



went to the korpiklaani gig and had a MARVELOUS time. what a bunch of awesome showmen.
a night with beer and finnish metal, about beer.. and hunting..
the main guitarist used a JSX halfstack, the vocalist a 5150 full stack, both had emg's and les pauls (though not gibsons).the violin player had a floor POD, what the accordion player used i got no idea.. prolly just mic, straight to mixer.
got in a bit of smalltalk about the tour with the bassist and he told me that on the last concerts afterparty the accordion player went onstage with an iron maiden tribute band and played The Trooper on the accordion. that alone i'd pay to see LOL
great people.cool to talk to.

i got a signed poster  but no picks  and very few pictures, cos i forgot to change the bateries in my camera =/

the supporting band, called Zvier (a twist on the slovene word for Beast) very pretty imperssive. Death/black metal band. they had an AWESOME guitar sound. one had a jem555, a randall head through a 5150 cab, and the other had a squire stratw/ emg's, a gt6 through an ibanez head and peavey cab not what i usualy listen to but live they got it. this is the 3rd slovene band, that can hold their ground live, that i know of.. there's a boatload of other metal bands, but havent seen em.
bunch of cool guys too (both bands)

i stuck around at the afterparty for a bit. got the signatures and went out, when i saw thesehip-hop screwups, that were outside.. and surprisingly, i knew one of them, cos he was a schoolmate in primary school. he told me if i had a car in the lot i should move it, but insted i went back to the bar and warned a couple of guys.. 10 seconds later, the parking lot was full of metallers. it was so much fun to watch. 5 whiteboys vs 100+ metalheads in full attire    

they did get a lucky break though.. the hospital is just around the corner  



it was a good evening. i wore my BKP shirt to do some advertising hehe

and the metal chicks = teh hotness!!!

i'll post pics when i wake up tomorrow

I really would have wanted to be there when 100+ metalheads surrounded 5 chavs in their pyjamas!

But Korpiklaani rule, gotta love battle metal!

yea it does.

but it's not as much the music, as it's a frickin metal party!
they got here, cos last years concert was a blast and we just toped that tenfold. they played for more than two hours and their setlist isnt THAT long, but inbetween songs, they just soaked in the chanting and screaming  for minutes. it put a grin to MY face, you could see that they had a blast too
cant wait for the next time
