...which also means a friends list cleanup.
If you read this and want to keep me in your friends, do so.
I won't be adding everyone in my old friends list since I don't know how many of you are actually interested.
As always, feedback is wanted. Every comment is appreciated. Honesty is required.
Monday - Wednesday, festval warm-up
Lis Er Stille
Reminded me slightly of Sigur Rós. I wish I found their album somewhere because they were magnificent, and I'm very happy I went and saw them despite my never hearing of or about them.
Slow in an elegant way.

These guys were special. Their music wasn't the best thing I ever heard, but the show they put on was amazing. They sure had developed their own unique style with costumes, masks and make-up.
I don't know if I'd listen a lot to their CD, but I'd sure watcht their shows over and over again!

I don't remember them, I only remember I liked them.
Can't rate them.
Purified In Blood
To me, a bit boring after the first songs, and not my taste in music at all...

Thursday, festval kick-off
Good rock band, the sort of music that gets you up and about.

An OK metal band. Not exactly my taste, but worth seing live.

I only saw two or three songs, while queing up for Sigur Rós who were playing in the same tent two hours later. So I don't recall much of the music but what I heard was OK.
A magical opening to the festival. Started 12 o'clock at night, and went on 'til about 1:30.
I've loved their unique relaxing melancholy music since I first heard them a year ago, and quickly collected all their albums (except Von).
His high pitched yet soft icelandic voice echoing through the dim tent hypnotized thousands as we closed our eyes and went places beyond where music has ever taken us before.
At the same time, you wanted to keep your eyes open, to observe the magical show taking place infront of you, with light, colors, instruments and images of all kinds.
Explaining a Sigur Rós concert spoken and written is very hard, but one thing is certain: they must be seen live. A fan or not, I advice you nevertheless to take part in that experience at least once in your life.
True art on stage.
