So yeah, it's already been a week, but before I completely forget about it, a few impressions on the Berlin Gig:
Since it was one of them extended shows, the gates already opened at 14:30, and by the time Fintroll started (22:00) I was already pretty wasted, especially since the fucking Berliner Pilsner they were daring to sell there was un-fucking-drinkable and I had to settle with Hefeweizen for the whole time. I like it, actually, but drinking absurd amounts of it can lead to funny stomach problems...well, whatever. The show was solid n' good as usual - but unfortunately, the sound sucked big time once again, so that took a bit of steam out of the whole thing. All you guys who have not been on this tour yet: I think it is not too much if I tell you that you can expect some of the new cover songs to be performed live...even tho I am not going to spoil you which ones they are.
Besides the show itself, it was nice to meet Zwerg again, great to finally meet ze Shamaniac (with whom I drank way more than just one pint
) and of course, catch up with Mathias and Samuli again, who claimed that after only 3 days of the show, it already felt like they had been on tour for at least two weeks. Unfortunately, not meeting Sami this time, but as the guys told me, he was very hungoverish and prefered to stay Backstage the whole time (that was seconded when I saw them on stage, tho. Poor Tundra really wasn't in his usual on-stage partying mood).Anyway, tons of fun, and I deeply regret that I cannot go to more than just this one show (they'll be in Leipzig this weekend, while I will NOT be, ffs).
