    You had a busy year didn't you? I'm sure that our paths must have crossed more than once - still don't have a clue what you look like tho. :) I still haven't gotten around to doing my review of 2008.

    I managed less than 12 this year... It's just not been terrific for gigs recently... although I'm really ruing missing Dark Fortress and Vulture Industries. How did you manage Opeth 4 times?!

    The Dark Fortress/Helheim/Vulture Industries gig was probably the best after Queensryche IMO. You're lucky the best elements of that line up are returning. Opeth seemed to play at every festival I went to. It was a good year for gigs, I guess. And remember, Post; I live in London and like more genres than you so obviously I'd manage more gigs.

    ...no you don't, you don't even listen to bleep:p Seriously though, a lot of them were down to low funds for the first 9 months of last year (hurray for income:) )... also I never questioned how you managed more gigs... you're on half the guest lists in London. In any instance I like all the same genres as you do, just to different extents... unfortunately the ones I like the most are the ones with a lot less gig potential :(

    Guestlisting sure does help. Last year, I think I think most of the gigs I guestlisted were through James (+1s) as my 'zine was too vague and not confident enough. Over the last few months it has certainly picked up. This is such a godsend considering I don't have my job anymore. Still, I bought more tickets last year than guestlisting because I had a high-paying job. Progressive and Viking metal gigs rarely hit London. I thought you were less of a thrash/death/power/melodic (in general) metal fan anyway with the exception of a few bands? Death metal gigs appear to be the most common in London. And I'm assuming your prog rock in take is minimal. So for me, there were numerous gigs worth attending.

    Trure for the most part (although I do love Death Metal... if it's old school and Swedish enough), it's just unfortunate that the kinds of bands I like in those styles are so few and far between (well actually there are plenty of fast symphonic power Metal bands but most of them are just bad clones of Rhapsody/Gamma Ray etc.). What Festivals are you doing this year BTW? I'm looking at doing 4 if there aren't many Black Metal gigs in the next few months; Inferno, Blacklights, Summer Darkness and Dutch Doom Day and may consider Northern Lights and Bloodstock

    What are Blacklights, Summer Darkness and Northern Lights? I've never even heard of them. Looks like you're finally pushing for open air events now. Festivals don't look so great line-up-wise this year. BOA is good but I've seen all the bands there I want to see except Die Apokalypt. Reiter. Nonetheless, there's a good chance I can guestlist it. Hellfest seems palatable but it's so pedestrian compared to the last two years I went. Another maybe. I want to do Kaltenbach but I don't know anyone who would be interested in accompanying me to prevent rape. Oh yeah, I want to go to that Deathfest in Leeds. Not really a festival, just an all-dayer but it looks like it makes up for the shambolic Damnation fest. Btw, you really should be slitting your wrists for missing Kampfar. It was simply sublime.

    Well I'll be seeing Kampfar at Inferno (and I'll bet you nything they'll play Inferno there). Blacklights is a small Open Air Festival that's starting this year (emphasis on small) but it's got easily the best line up of any festival since Inferno 2004: Sear Bliss, Darkspace, Darkestrah, Azaghal, Galadriel, Control Human Delete, Emancer, Wyrd and Silent Stream of Godless Elegy (among others):D Summer Darkness is an indoor Goth/Bleep fest in The Netherlands although it covers the whole spectrum of Gothic Music from Goth rock, Darkwave, Medieval, EBM, Industrial, Neo-Folk, Synthpop and Gothic Metal (MDB, Paradise Lost, Therion and Epica have played there in the past)... I'm mostly wanting to see VNV Nation and Grendel this year (although only 1/3rd of the line-up is done) but Rotersand, Modulate and Reaper are all supposedly quite good live and there are some other more bizzare bands on the bill (including a Military pop band?!) that I'd be interested in seeing, just for the experience if nothing else. Northern Lights is a festival in Austria, hosted in a castle. It was supposed to start last year but got cancelled because someone told the police it was a Nazi fest... which is a load of bollocks to say the least. It's mostly smaller Folk Metal bands of varying extremity with some Black Metal thrown in to boot.

    But Kampfar headlined here in London. And yes, Kampfar played 'Inferno' here and probably will be in Norway seeing as its the opener to their new album and a staple in their set atm (Dolk told me they were varying the set at each show ala Dream Theater. Wish they played more than one UK date; I might have been able to catch 'Valdogg' or 'Til Siste Man'.), let alone because of the festival's name. I was more surprised that they didn't play 'Lykteman' though and generally upset about the lack of songs mentioned in the parenthesis but TBH it appeared I was the only one who cared what Kampfar actually played. Live electronic music seems a dull. What's so impressive about watching a guy on a synth/computer? I suppose if you're going for the goth in general that could be interesting but then I'd probably head to Castle Party in Poland which always has squirt-worthy line-ups but I haven't checked it this year. I'd like to go at some point - James and I actually toyed with the idea but I don't think he listens to the few goth/electronic bands that he used to. Anyhow, I'm putting your appearance at this fest down to your new-found (social?) love of goth-associated electronic music. Smaller folk bands? I didn't know you were much of a folk metal fan either. Isn't Ragnarok the way forth when considering folk bands? The line-up is pretty impressive this year actually. It's times like that where I wish I had more than 2 metal friends just to go to the less popular festivals.

    With regards to live bleep, generally what you say is, according to my cyber friends, largely correct, it's usually one guy with a microphone and 2 guys with keyboards which is predictably lame (based on Youtube vids), although some bands (eg. Skinny Puppy) have guitars or other more front-stage friendly instruments). I think the general consensus with bleep is to either have a heavy visual element to the show or have a very good frontman which is a major reason I want to see Combichrist, VNV Nation and Grendel. But this is one of those things that you really have to experience first hand (lets face it, seeing any band on video doesn't compare to actually being there) and that's the major reason I want to go. Sadly none of my friends are likely to be able to afford it - they're mostly going to Ampifest, which is more my kind of bleep (and less everyone else's strangely, they prefer EBM and Futurepop to Electro-Industrial) but clashes with my Anniversary - so I'll go solo if I end up going (It's indoor). That said I'm really keen on Black Lights now; tickets are only 16 euroes, but it looks like I'll have to go solo since Irish Dave and Oliver are blowing their money on inferior festivals (Oliver's actually excited about Marduk doing all of PDM... even though, lets face it, it's just a few riffs over a blastbeat for ~half an hour), might manage to sway Gib tho... You're spot on about Ragnarok (Indeed Northern Lights is a bit pap this year so I won't bother) but unfortunately it's too close to Inferno for me to be able to slot it in, even though I know people going this year.

    Marduk are so shit that all of their fans should be violently persecuted. Seriously, I weep for humanity whenever I see someone in a Marduk t-shirt. That band keeps re-releasing the same album over and over yet people believe it's a new one. Anyone who is excited about 'Motherfucker Division Marduk' being played in its entirety has actually failed at life and should destroy their CV.

    Summer Darkness also gets a recommendation from me. The atmosphere is low-key, there's a good mix of Goth, electro/EBM, metal and neo-folk and Utrecht is a nice relaxed city. Hire a bicycle if you go, as the venues are some distance apart along the canal.
