They Only Come Out At Night

Posted in Uncategorized on November 18, 2011 by Sara Hammerzmith

One of Lordis singles off The Arockalypse, the song they made together with Udo Dirkschneider if you remember? I like it in some twisted kind of way.

You know, you have those days when you are supposed to do alot, and you end up doing completly nothing? Yeah, I had one of those today. I was supposed to finish everything for Finland today, but did I? Of course not. But I guess I can fix the shirt right before going to bed.

The sad part is, right now, I don’t have any motivation to go. And sadly, that happens alot. It all depends a bit on the concert, on the situation, and whom I’m going with. I think I might feel this lack of motivation due to
1, I’m in moneystress – you might think I have alotta money, but I really don’t. Not at all, and when things get ‘expensive’ I just get sick on it. And Helsinki has gotten expensiver than it usually is.
2, I have Lichtenfels coming up
3, They have changed the usual venue so my total usual plan is like, ruined.

Yup, that is HCSS picks! Pink one is from the shop, but white one is Vics!

Hopefully it will feel better tomorrow. Or well, we will see about that. Nevertheless I’m going of course, not bailing now. I think also I hate the fact the entire weekend gets lost because of it… I’m back on Mondaynight around 3am. I dislike that ALOT. Damn flights… oh well. I’ll get alotta schoolwork done at least! I also got the offer to stay at a certain rockstars home… but we will see ; ).

Okay, now it’s 2.21am, so I think I’m just gonna hit the sheets. After cutting of course.

Hollywood Teaze

Posted in Uncategorized on November 16, 2011 by Sara Hammerzmith

The new tune on the Generation Wild LP. I have some kind of hate-love towards it, I don’t particulary like it as if it was one of my favourite, but it’s also somehow given to be in playlists and always rolling.

Talking about the song and the LP, after a little struggle, it’s finally here! Were sure a little light in black now when the sickness really hit it off for me.

I suspected already on Monday that I’d end up being extremly sick, and since I did so, I’ve kinda slipped a bit with all I had planned to do this week. The review haven’t been written, I haven’t begun packing, I haven’t fixed the Sister shirt, and the worst part, I haven’t been able to go to school. But hopefully, I haven’t missed too much of it.

Oh well. Time to do something different, like drink more hot chocolate or at least put out all the stuff I need…

All My Friends Are Dead

Posted in Uncategorized on November 15, 2011 by Sara Hammerzmith

I just dug up with Turbonegro song recently, must say I love it.

I still have various injuries since the concert, and it’s been approx three days since it, I mean, this is just too much. And on top of that, I’ve gotten sick. Nothing is really going my way right now is it?

Or actually, it is. I spent half of my day today with the very best Maria, we both exchanged to euro (she is going to Belgium tomorrow, and me to Finland on Saturday) we also went looking for birthdaypresents and christmasgifts for the people we are celebrating New Years Eve. I know exactly what to get Thomas for his birthday now, and I also got my hand on Martines birthday gift. I already had their christmaspresents done, so now it’s just Paula and Maria left of those two.

After a nice dinner and right before I was heading for work we joined the dark side for a short moment and plundered a wall for it’s Hardcore Superstar posters. However, I wonder if anyone cares considering the event has already taken place and also, people had started to put other posters upon it. I also managed to get the last piece for my Lichtenfels outfit, a piece I never though I’d find! But I so did. NOW, I can easily say, Lichtenfels will be epic. A few more things are to be done before the outfit is complete, but I’ll take those down next week.

Talking about outfits, I still have no clue what to do with the Sister shirt. As it looks right now, I’ll give it a normal cut. Cause really, either way, I’d have given it a pretty normal cut even I intended to totally slaughter it. Finland will be good really, hanging out with good friends in my favourite town ever. Even though Harri tweets me the weirdest things ever, haha.

Hardcore Superstar

Posted in Concerts, Uncategorized on November 13, 2011 by Sara Hammerzmith

Ahh, I missed this! It’s only a few weeks since my last concert, sure, but still, this is kinda where I belong you know. You get there, get in, visit the bathroom repack alotta shit to limit what you bring into the arena, and then just go inside and hit front row, and for this occasion, right infront of Jocke. Were there together with the very best Maria, later companied by Hanna and Nikke and one more friend I don’t remember the name of. Was a pretty fun night… Or… I’ll get back to that later. Keep in mind though dear readers, that actual reviews of the gigs are put up on hå, so this isn’t really a full review more… look-at-our-night-kind-of-thing.

Ammotrack was the first band to hit the stage, and you, it’s that sad moment when it’s only… seven people in the audience. Must say though, together with a blackhaired guy, Maria and I were the ones getting it going, and they well noticed it! Pretty good band though, but I can’t say I fell for it, so to speak.

After Ammotrack it actually started to get some kind of audience when Avatar was entering… I need to widen my own views, I was going in for it as “I don’t like this band.” Like, big time.  Sad part is, once a band facinates me, I’m hooked. No matter genre, and so was also the case with Avatar. At first I was like, wait what, this doesn’t fit with Hardcore Superstar at all, I mean, NOT AT ALL. And the singer was kind of insane, he marched on the spot and kept hitting a stick in the speaker, again, again, again… Scared me a bit, I was just waiting for him to swing it to the audience like Lordi’s granny does. But he never did, and despite the lack of song, he, and the band, facinated me, and now I’m hooked.  Lovely stuff, and I think most of my friends never thought I’d like a band as them.

The light on Nöjes doesn’t cooperate with my camera really… oh well. Really, the pressure started to get really heavy now before Hardcore Superstar, and thats what I wanted to talk about.

I’ve been to many shows. I’ve been in front row on gigs with 20,000 people behind me, I’ve also stood behind those 20,000, been one of four in an audience and so on. And I know, when in front row, there are pressure from behind, I know that. I also know you can never leave a concert without bruises.  But there are fucking limits on how much pressure there can be. Last night… was extremly extraordinary, and this is why I completly hate to go to concerts in Karlstad. It feels like it’s 100 fans there, and the rest is just people happening to end up there, and then ruining it for us. Because, I can honestly say, I only experience those kinds of things on Nöjesfabriken, it was the same when we saw Crashdiet there. We went from there extremly molested, and it wasn’t even funny yesterday. Today, I could barely get out of bed, because I have injuried both knees, both elbows and also my ribs, so I can’t stand steady on my knees, I can’t lift myself on the elbows, and I can’t bend.
These kinds of injuries, I ONLY get at Nöjesfabriken, and once on Sigurdsgatan. What the hell is wrong with people in this town? Take it easy, PLEASE.

Okay, moving on to Hardcore Superstar.

It was a fine gig. I mean… eh.. the setlist kind of disappointed me, or maybe, possibly, did I have way too much expectations on them, being the three weeks of madness and all, but I was still a bit disappointed. I really missed “We Don’t Need A Cure”… But as a liveband, they were great, as usual really. The only major thing that happened was when Jocke ran out during “Moonshine”, leaving the audience sing the whole song with the band alone. We later learned that Jocke had been out to throw up, haha nice one.  But yes, in general, a good gig. I love how, at the end, Vic [Zino] kept throwing a bunch of picks to me, but I’m lousy at catching them and didn’t get a single one of the ones he threw. But thanks to Maria, who poked the guard, she managed to get me one. Haha, I love her!

Talking about ‘Moonshine’, or wait.. don’t talk about moonshine… No but seriously, there was this extremly annoying guy who were first all over me and I pushed him away, then he started to be all over Maria and I pushed him away, and even threatened him with my camera (I may love it, but I won’t hesitate to use it as a weapon). Even the guards asked him to back off. And then, when ‘Moonshine’ started, he poked me again and said “Oh? Is it really this one?”

I mean. The audience (and Jocke) sang “Don’t talk about MOONSHINE…”. Of course it ain’t ‘Moonshine’! This is obviously ‘Bag On Your Head’! If you can’t even recognize ‘Moonshine’ who is one of the more odd songs of HCSS, and actually have to ask someone, you shouldn’t be there. No, not at all. And you shouldn’t talk to me about it either.

But yes. Over all, I must say I had a really good evening. After the show we got ourselves something to drink, I mean, the dehydration you get during a concert is not to play with! We hit the merchstand too and I can now officially say I got my very first Hardcore Superstar shirt! And being so proud.  We also took a way by the guys in Avatar, having Maria taking a real hot picture with the REAL hot singer! Hoho!

Best tonite: Avatar! That awkward moment when the supportband is better than the headliner you know…
Worst: The nomadic audience. Give me a break. There ARE some limits.

Rock n Roll Train

Posted in Uncategorized on November 11, 2011 by Sara Hammerzmith

Opening track off AC/DC’s “Black Ice”, I guess also the inspiration by the kickass and epic stage AC/DC ha don the tour back in 2009, with the giant locomotive you remember? Epic stuff.

Today is the day.

Well, firstly it IS the 11/11/11, and in just any minute it’s even 11:11, so this is double epic haha, but no, today is the day. You probably remember I’ve been talking alot about these three weeks being epic, three weeks of gigs as I call it, well, it ain’t gigs every day for three weeeks obviously, but it’s one gig each weekend, today it’s Hardcore Superstar on their “The Party Ain’t Over Til We Say So” tour. Next week it’s Stala&SO. + Honey Hellraiser (I kinda notice a pattern here…) and then beautifully wrapping up with Lichtenfels and Christmas Metal Meeting.

But tonight, I’m actually staying here in my hometown, no need to travel any further than like what ten minutes or something.  But before that; University library and stable!

Ain’t the best picture I’ve taken, but it’s from my last HCSS concert, at Skogsröjet

Motherfuckers Like You

Posted in Uncategorized on November 9, 2011 by Sara Hammerzmith

Sister tune, and it’s like I said earlier about the whole album, it’s perfect in a little box!

You know, I’m on skype with Martine right now, talking about Lichtenfels. Funnily, this song reminds me of one of the persons who will be present… Haha, nevertheless, Lichtenfels will be epic, which is in less than two weeks!

This kinda stresses and boosts me, I spent my hours at work today, while working obviously, setting up an exact schedule on exactly how to spend my time until the day we leave for Lichtenfels, and hopefully it will work out just as planned! And if it does, it mean I’ll be able to manage everything, EVERYTHING. Life is goo, and as we speak, Martine and ‘i have continued planning a bit on what me and Thomas planned for 2012, so yes. It is good now.

I actually wanted to say something. Ever since upper secondary school, I’ve wanted to study music and event management, I even found one USS with that program, but my parents wouldn’t let me go. However, I know found a univeristy course of the same matter, so after I’m done att KAU, it’s possible I’ll apply for it. But that means I have to move. Far away. And I don’t really know about that… but I guess we will see!

Now I shall head back to The Big Bang Theory. SEE YAH.

The Party Ain’t Over Til I Say So.

Posted in Uncategorized on November 9, 2011 by Sara Hammerzmith

Today has been great, so great I’m not even putting out a song here right now.

New course have kicked off, giving me new energy. The time in the Stable with Maria was kickass, so much fun, and the amount of time I managed to spend with Lady Axa was just… amazing.
Thomas and I have made up epic plans for New Years Eve at Martines.

So what I wanted to say was, life is good now. REAL GOOD.

Lady Axa and I during the madness in the stable. Maria’s the epic photographer.

The party ain’t over til I say so
And I feel good tonight
I’m just getting started and I hate you
I just might start a fight
Need nobodys filthy hands
Taking care of me tonight
I’ll be just fine

Ps. The Pic kinda describes how I feel right now.
