Rock City Stockholm 2018 – Day 2

So, the second and last day had come. I wasn’t really interested in more bands than Dynazty today to be honest – and such was the game plan too. I was going to stay for as many bands as I could, before taking the 23:00 bus home.

So, I checked out of my hotel, went down to my usual Espresso House and had the same food I always have – a nice brunch sitting there reminicsing. Last night had been perfect. And today I was about to see Dynazty again. You really see them so rarely.

I headed over to CUM to buy the most amazing belt like ever, and then down to the busstation to lock up all my stuff and THEN finally heading to the arena. I thought I was about to run late, but today was my day, and just as the presenter went on stage to introduce Wildness on stage, I made it.

Wildness

Wildness was first act on stage and I personally think they delivered an amazing set! Was a great way to start off the day, and there was a little bit more people here this time around. Thank you!

And now… Dynazty.

And so it began. The band opened up rather strongly with “Run Amok” before quickly throwing us into “The Northern End”. Seriously, all these years – still my absolut favorite song. And this band… This band. “Raise Your Hands” followed suit and then “The Beast Inside” from their most recent album.

“This is My Life”, their cover of Sweden song for Eurovision Song Contest 2010 was next on the list – and I love this cover. “Roar of The Underdog” followed suit, and.. I mean, there were more people than it had been last night, but it wasn’t exactly the best groove, even if it’s a good turnout.

George had his own little moment with his drumsolo, and that was then followed by “Incarnation”. “The Human Paradox” followed suit before the title track “Titanic Mass” happened.

After this, they wrapped up their entire set with “Starlight” and the band left the stage. I guess Nils had to rush off to Västerås for a show with Amaranthe. Hardworking man, he is!

The show in general was great though. Good energy from the band, and a good vibe. Thank you!

After this, another wait began. But for me it was.. Well, it was gonna be good to see the band but it was more passing time for me at this point. Next band on stage though, was Coldspell.

Sadly, the audience wasn’t more than what Art Nation had had the day before, but despite that, they went on an delievered an amazing and energetic set! It was very enjoyable.

House of Lords

Next band on stage was House of Lords, also sadly with a very small audience turn out, but still – great set was delievered. It’s something with these intimate gigs, isnt it?

Bonfire

Last show for me to see today was Bonfire. Another band I hadn’t really gotten all too much into, but still gave on an amazing show. Actually even got me going too. And a lot better turn out, thank god!

After Bonfire, I left the venue, headed off back toward the city, bought some food and collected my stuff and prepared myself for the busride home.

It has been a great weekend, with a lot of fun – and boy did I need that. Thanks to all the bands and the promotor for this fest! I can’t wait for next year.
