What I didn’t know yesterday when I posted the news that Arcturus are playing Hellfest next year, is that they are also confirmed to play Brutal Assault in Czech Republic, 9.-11. August, 2012. I played there last year with Sarke and it’s one of my favourite festival venues. It’s held in the old army fortress Josefov 130 km east of Prague, and the next time I play there I hope to get to see more of it.
There’s already a lot of other great bands confirmed to play Brutal Assault, so check their website here: http://brutalassault.cz/en/
Arcturus have booked a lot of shows now, and more is probably being booked. Check the LIVE page in the top meny for a complete list of all confirmed shows.
This past week has been (almost) all about games and it has raised several issues. Comparing the xbox to my PC is one thing, I had no idea the gaming quality was so different. The gap is so huge that I already feel halfway cheated even buying this xbox!
The fact that I’m starting to feel harassed by some Norwegian media who portrays all video-gamers as potential terrorists is another. I can tell you one thing: I’m glad I for one know what video games are and will be able to show my own kids how to use it in a healthy way. Stop the madness, don’t stop gaming!
So, lets talk about gaming, did you see this yet? The Skyrim trailer;
Asgeir got his MW3 a few days before me, and I still haven’t been able to team up with the gang for some duelling. Asgeir gathered some friends already the first night with the post “Modern Warfar 3 tonight“.
I went to Anders Oddens book release this week. The book “Piratliv” (Pirate-life) is quite good, but will be a slap in the face for many of those who have a glorified view on the Norwegian Black Metal scene in the early nineties. I’m still reading, will tell you all about it later
We had two posts concerning Arcturus this week. The first was actually about a doctorate, a paper written about Norwegian metal based on interviews of Knut Magne “The Miller” Valle. The second was about the Arcturus gig in Finland, the tickets are smoking hot. 300 sold in 4 hours!
Ok, that ends this week.
