Yes. We are slowly moving towards our first live performance(s) and are thus working our asses off getting a working setlist together. Being a virtually unknown band with virtually unknown material we decided to combine our own arsenal with borrowed weapons of mass destruction. So, the live set will bring forth a ton of covers as well as our own songs from the Into The Formless Dawn album and possibly something new.
This weekend will see us throwing together a nice Sunday rehearsal, which is always fun. This time around we have a few songs on offer that shall be our testimony to the greatness of one Finnish legend and two Swedish uber powerful groups. Sentenced has been a very close favorite of mine for years, and I can probably speak for us all in saying that without Sentenced there would be very different times in Finland metal-wise, and probably otherwise as well. The Way I Wanna Go is just one of a multitude of awesome songs they have in their striking catalogue of albums, but the reason this one got picked this time is how it sutures up the tear in time that Jarwa's departure caused in the metal dimension of time and space. He left after this stuff, and sealed one era into a stinking coffin that we the old skool Sentenced-fans still visit to pay our dues.
And thinking of other stuff we want to introduce to our setlist, Amon Amarth's Runes To My Memory came up immediately. To destroy live, we must indeed destroy. And to achieve that extra destruction to our punch, this shit will do well! Heavy as a celestial body, relentlessly melodic and tells a fucking story of a fucking viking fucking falling in battle against some fucking ambushing cowards and fucking dying on a fucking riverbank thinking of his family, his loved ones. Yes, it will do.
Nemesis. I wrote a song called Nemesis, but this isn't it. Probably the only song with a female vocalist I can interpret in my own way and still remain at least remotely credible, Arch Enemy's Nemesis will work. It works like a clockwork on their album, their live shows and to be brutally blunt, we fucking nailed it at last rehearsal with one go. So, here we go. Lots of metal coming your way!
Now, let's start getting those dates sorted.
