This weekend i spent a visit to the Getaway Rock Festival, it was the third time in a row for this visit and even thought the line-up had much to wish for it was still a handfull of bands that i enjoy that played, luckily for me most of them played on Friday since i had a day off than so i could visit, on thursday i had to work so i sadly missed out Kvelertak and Ghost.
Ghost i have seen a few times but would be nice to see again anyway since i think they are amazing, and Kvelertak i have never seen. But hopefully i will get the chance soon enough. And on Saturday there wasnt any band that i was interested in seeing so i never wen’t that day.
We arrived on Friday in time to see Amon Amarth, who did a really good show, but since i had seen them earlier this year i didn’t stay for the whole show since Crashdiet started playing about an half hour into the Amon Amarth set. Crashdiet i haven’t seen in about a couple of years i think, so it was nice to see them again. They did a really good set, and sounded better live than i have ever seen them before (i have seen them live with all three singers).
After the Crashdiet set i had some time off until one of the highlights of the day Raised Fist, and yes they sure delivered once more and i think it’s impossible to leave a Raised Fist gig unsatisfied, just pure eneretic Hardcore at it’s best, if you haven’t listened to em, check em out. And yes, they did the best show of all on this day i think.
After Raised Fist it was time for another priority of mine on this festival Ministry, i saw their farewell show back in 2008 and i was sure not gonna miss this one, and yes Ministry delivered a really good show, but since they only had 60 minutes showtime they hade to cut the setlist a bit, and i think it was a little too much songs from the new album. Still a good show and specielly at the end when they pulled out some old classics.
One band i haven’t been listening to so much Municipal Waste was up next, i was really blown away by their set and will sure check in their albums a bit more. Up next was Satyricon, also a band i have seen a few times before and also a band wich always does really good liveshows, so also this night, the set mostly included tracks from their more rock n rollish black metal albums along with the song “Mother north” a great set, and looking forward to hear the new album they are working on.
And the headliners of the day was Manowar, and they were pure shit i think! This was the first time i seen them, and to be honest i haven’t been listening to them since i was about 14 years or so. I did enjoy a few songs but the band is so cheesy it’s unbelievable, but it looked like most of the people enjoyed the show, myself wasnt that amused.
I like this festival alot, i have been here all three years they have been active now and even though it’s never been as good as the first year, they still manage too book alot of good bands. Looking forward to next year! And to finish off, here is a photo of Al Jourgensen in Ministry after the show, nice to shook hands with an artist i have been listening to for half my life. Rest In Piece Ministry!
Title: Riot In Everyone
Label: Rabid Redneck
When Crashdiet released their debut album “Rest in Sleaze” back in 2005 the musicscene here in Sweden exploded with hair metal bands who wanted to be the next big thing, the labels signed all kinds of shit bands and the scene got boring. Let’s face it, none of those band had what Crashdiet had, first off they had a very charismatic vocalist in Dave Lepard (R.I.P) along with great songs and melodies. The only other interesting bands that came out of this wave were Sister Sin, they are still going strong but they play more old school heavy metal, and also Vains of Jenna, really good stuff worth checking out.
This single was released prior to the debut album on the small label Rabid Redneck Records. I don’t know how many copies were made but i would guess around 1000 copies or something. The vinyl is really thick and well sounding, on the A side you have “Riot in everyone” wich i think is a great youth anthem of it’s time, just like “Rock n roll all night” was to KISS and “Shout at the devil” to Motley Crue. This is one of those songs you never grow tired off listening to. On the B-side you have the song “Out of line” also a very good Crashdiet tune, and i highly recomend you to check out the bands debut album and the demos released prior to that, it’s really good.
I got my copy signed by the whole band in silversharpie when it was released, wich you can see in the picture, it’s a little hard to get a good photo off it cause the flash of the camera. This is one single i hold very dear. Crashdiet have continued after the death of singer Dave Lepard but even though they still release good stuff, it’s just not the same.
Side A: Riot in everyone
Side B: Out of line
