Concert: Madrugada

I put this video on YouTube quite quickly after the concert, but I’ve had some issues with korp.no and kinda forgot to share it here. Hopefully my site issues has been resolved now, I will do a QC later.

Madrugada had a reunion tour celebrating the fantastic album that is Industrial Silence (1999). On December 7th 2019 it was their first of four concerts in Oslo, and it was awesome.

Madrugada was and has always been a great live band, where the music is the main thing. They certainly played around with some lighting and Sivert Høyem is wearing his discoball-jacket, but the music is their true strong point. We’re all missing Robert Burås of course, but Cato Thomassen is a brilliant guitarist and is filling the big shoes after Robert masterfully. I also saw him with Madrugada when they played at Oslo Spektrum in 2008, so I know he is capable and then some.

As for this video, it’s the first song of the concert, Vocal, and unfortunately the audio is a bit messed up. Still, it’s a long one, and the audio is quite okay and sometimes pretty good even… so I decided to upload it.

Ihsahn – Stridig (2019)

Ihsahn (of Emperor) just dropped this little gold nugget of a song. I was late checking out his solo works, but it’s all awesome, despite being very different from Emperor.

I’ve seen Emperor live once, and Ihsahn a couple of times and both are extremely good and professional in a live setting.

Oh – and the man really know how to play his guitar! The guitar playing is actually crazy good. 😀

Some Pokémon achievements

I got a couple of nice achievements in Pokémon Go about a week ago. Forgot to post them here. I still play this game after all these years, but I’m not raiding (much) or anything… keeping it casual.

Max level is 40 so only 4 to go.

Some new music today

Music release day (friyay) is the best day of the week.

Today Ozzy Osbourne released a new track. Not my favorite but it’s quite okay.

Also, and this one took my totally by surprise, there’s a new song by the mighty King Diamond out today as well. I think it’s about 10 years since his last album so this is huge. Great track, will definitely check it out some more.

World of Tanks: Quartermaster

World of Tanks has a special even nowadays (like they often have), and they’ve added a couple of small games. One is an arcade type of game, and then there’s this Game & Watch type of game: Quartermaster.

It’s pretty fun really, and it brings back memories to when I played some of these old handhelds (Pac-Man was a favorite).

In this recorded game I managed to get the maximum points (170) in one game, which gives an amount of tickets I can spend on crafting Dog Tags for the event.

Dimmu Borgir – Gateways [live] (2017)

I was there! An epic song in an epic setting with a choir and the Norwegian Radio Orchestra. The female guest singer, Agnete from Djerv, also appeared here.

I never remember dates that much, but I think the concert itself was in 2011, but wasn’t released until 2017. It came out as bluray even, which is extra awesome.

The reason I add this here and now is because it suddenly popped up in my YouTube feed, and well… it’s still pretty damn good and deserves a share.
