It might seem that we're slow with our updates but the truth is that we've just been so "fucking busy" (as a good friend of ours would say) by doing absolutely nothing! Plus as usual the router station issues...
The show at the Majestic Music Club in Bratislava, Slovakia was really cool. 113 735 screaming and headbanging fans came out and rocked their socks of.
Bologna, Italy and like the last time we were in Italy... not that many people did show up. Actually, we think it was the same dog with it's owner that was at this show as at the show in Padova on the last tour. The catering was much better this time though and that's always a plus! Where do all metalheads go to in Italy when there's a gig? Well, not on the gigs, that's for sure... Making pizza maybe?
Anyway, better luck next time and for you who wasn't there... Your loss!

On a day off in Austra, Toby had to go to the hospital to get his severly bad back fixed, he got an infusion in his arm and some prescripted medicine.
Montpellier in France. The venue was like the size of our rehearsel room and the show became one hell of a hot and darn sexy one.. One of the best ones of the tour! We really rocked the fans in Montpellier's cock of!

What about Spain then... well.
There were of corpse some major fuck up with an ass promoter which wanted to cancel all the shows that he booked. Granada, which later was moved to Sevilla BUT ended up being in a small city called Almeria.. He also were supposed to book the show in Madrid.. Anyway, the first show in Spain was in Valencia and that one is THE best show so far of the tour.. completely insane crowd but in a good way! Tons of crowd surfing going on and lots of stagediving. We even got police escort to the venue from outside the town!
|Valencia "river hela haket"|
Lets go back to the ass that wanted to cancel the shows then, A friend of Obituary, Juan was contacted and he mananged to re-arrange the shows that this mother fucker fucked up just in 3 days.
The show in Almeria was ok, about the same amount people showed up as when we played the same place with Nile a couple of years ago... The Madrid show was also ok considering the short notice and change of venue... That show for us ended up in a really bad way though as some drunken fucking jerk got up on stage and of corpse stepped on Ola's pedal board, so one of the cables broke and guitar died, then he pushed away Ola from the mic and started to growl. We were not able to fix the the guitar so we had to cut the set short, for the third time Grave did not play Into The Grave
|These guys did a smashing version of Into the Grave instead|
People...listen up... IF you for some unknown reason have to get up on stage, don't just stand there and make a fucken mess for the bands.. Get the fuck off the stage ASAP!!!
The chance/risk that you'll get a foot up your ass is really big and we're not gonna play Mr Nice Guy anymore. If you come up, you can be just as sure as the Pope is Polish that you'll be thrown or kicked of very very very fast!!! Just so you know what you're getting yourselves into!
The stage = Band area...
The floor infront of the stage = Audience area... Capiche!!?
|If not, these two bad ass mother fuckers will kick you sorry ass!!!|
|...And you'll end up looking like this!|
Tonite we ripped Lahr in Germania apart!!
