Happy 31st, Seventh Son!

Very happy 31st birthday to my favorite ever Iron Maiden album, the incredible “Seventh Son of a Seventh Son”!

There’s got to be just more to it than this
Or tell me why do we exist?
I’d like to think that when I die
I’d get a chance, another time
And to return and live again
Reincarnate, play the game
Again and again and again

One of the most enthusiastic, fan-loving and intimate bands of our time; thanks to you, Mark “The Shark” Shelton! Your musical work is indescribable and your energy and nerves for playing live gigs and catching up with fans in the past few years is honourable.

Screaming in torment

Darkness Unseen video blog

I am just about to transform Darkness Unseen into some kind of a video blog with live interviews, video album reviews and recorded festival/concert reports – I’d keep some written content but I also make the first steps towards trying myself out in the video-field. So what you can expect in the next few weeks:

– My introduction video and first video album review
– A live video interview made at Chaos Descends
– A fan-footage from Chaos Descends as well as a written festival review

Stay tuned! :)

Reasons for not being active pt. #a lot.

So dear everyone, first of all I would like to apologize for being completely passive when it came to posting in the last months. The main thing is that at the beginning of April I moved from Budapest, Hungary to Leipzig, Germany and as you can imagine unfortunately the main point before my eyes was not moving forward with my blog and getting stuff in connection with my hobbies done but adjusting to a different country and doing all the administration required for it, trying to get used to my new job, new language and all the people I keep getting to know day by day. I kind of would be able to feel settled already but I just moved again into another apartment with some of my friends inside Leipzig so I don’t – also what makes the whole thing harder is that I’m doing a night job and even though I do enjoy it (just like everything else) so far, I definitely have to practice a lot of time management in case I even wanna have social life or get any stuff done, let that be administration or handling anything I care about, including reviews/interviews.

Being happy in Leipzig. Such a perfect city

I do have a feeling that this will change soon tho, as I feel like writing stuff again already especially becaaaause…:

The first issue of Metalegion Magazine I’ve been doing interviews for in 2014-15 is finally out and available for free download, featuring my interviews made with John & Donald Tardy from Obituary, Bobby Blitz from Overkill, Andreas “Gerre” Geremia from Tankard and Marc Grewe from ex-Morgoth along with a few reviews written under the name of Estelle. HERE you can find it – in case you like what you read & see, I would be happy about having the word spread. :)

I also got a few more names already with whom I will surely do an interview as we are planning the 2nd edition of the magazine: Sodom, Running Wild and Destruction, plus a lot of more band and festival ideas among which a lot will probably be sorted out. Couldn’t be more excited. :D

Soo hopefully I won’t disappear for months again and will be able to put some energy in writing, I love doing it and wouldn’t like seeing something I’ve done slipping away. :) Until then!

The next few projects

I haven’t been really active lately, so here’s a little notice on what’s going to happen in the next few days/weeks:

  • I attended the Raging Death Date festival some days ago in Germany with many worthy bands so you’ll see a short report on it soon.
  • I am a great In Solitude fan, so on account of the band’s break up I am going to post a review on every album of theirs starting with In Solitude.
  • There will be a Bölzer gig here in two weeks and I’d love to do an interview with either of the members, I already asked the band if it would be possible. If they say yes, expect some cool questions and (hopefully) cool answers!

This is all for now, trying to accomplish them as soon as possible. Until then, let’s listen to some of the best heavy metal ever!

Guess who is going to do a live interview with Steve DiGiorgio himself!

We’ll have a Death-Gorguts gig on the 25th of June, I’m actually expecting it to be the show of the year here in Hungary. I asked Steve of Death, Sadus, Testament, ex-Autopsy and ex-Control Denied  who is my favorite bass player of all time if I could do an interview with him that night – he immediately said yes and I’m just extremely happy :D I’m a huge fan of his work and this will surely be my most extensive and largest interview so far, I feel so honoured! We’ll see how it turns out :)
