Hard Rock Laager 2015 - Vana-Vigala, Estonia, 03-04.07.2015 13.07

It's been so long since the last time I was at Hard Rock Laager. It's, to put it bluntly, quite embarrassing. When I looked it up, it turned out that I have skipped 6 editions. It's surprisingly 2 less than I initially thought, though. The reasons have varied from Hellfests to conflicting schedules, as well as the lack of interest for any particular line-up, and laziness. In those skipped editions I only really regret missing Trail Of Tears and I didn't intend to repeat this mistake with Threshold. And being there again, it felt like a homecoming.

The Meads Of Asphodel - The Excommunication Of Christ (2001)

Let us observe our surroundings and try to figure them out, shall we? We've got knights. Those knights are wielding swords and shields. And there's the sound of some antiquated Italian language snaking its way into our eardrums. No, this isn't the Renaissance fair. And no, we're not in a church. But we are in the presence of Metatron, so you're getting warmer. (by Apothecary)   Read more ››
