Report

Roundtrip To Hel, Part III

[Continued from Part II]

SUNDAY, 6/29 - 13:00

“We have less than thirty minutes to catch the bus.”

THAT gets me moving. Did I mention I’ve developed Midnight Sun Syndrome since arriving in Finland? According to the current DSM edition, its chief symptom is “a complete ignorance and lack of regard for the time of day and nonchalant indifference toward tardiness; see also ‘The Casual Southerner.’”

I enter the bathroom. Nera, a shy, tiny black cat, scampers between my legs and out the door. I almost trip and plant a bare foot smack in the litter box. I’m still waking up.

As the mornings have ticked by - it’s still “morning” to us this weekend - it’s gotten more and more difficult to grease the joints, clear the skull, and get going. Tuska is not a camping festival, so I’ll be damned if I’m going to forsake the comforts of home at my disposal. A shit, shower, and shave is as good as a full-immersion baptism after a night of drinking.

My ill-advised windmilling at Omnium Gatherum last night really did a twisting number on my hair, which is in danger of Chris Barnesing. Lacking a brush, I clumsily yank apart the knotted strands and clumps cemented together with dried sweat.

And then, Rachel’s muffled yell over the running shower, through the closed door: “You ready?” Not even close. More...

Powerwolf Issues Album Update

Powerwolf has issued the following update with regards to the band's upcoming new studio effort:

"It's been mysteriously silent in the wolves' camp during the last few months. The reason for that is the best possible one: We have been more than busy writing the follow up album to 'Blood of the Saints.'

"And after five intense months of blood, sweat and... even more blood, we can proudly tell you that most of the songwriting is done and there's a truly monstrous piece of wolfish metal insanity on the way.

"There will be fast stuff, heavy stuff and epic stuff as well as some unholy little surprises - and all of that in the most typical, powerwolfish way you can imagine. Only 6 weeks to go until we enter the studio - can't wait to bring these songs to life.

"Be prepared for some kind of studio diary whenever we find a minute in between the studio work."

Further details on the follow-up to 2011's "Blood of the Saints" (reviewed here) will be announced as they are made available.
