Sabaton Live At The New England Metal Festival – You’re In The Army Now


On Saturday April 22, 2017, Swedish Pagan superstars Sabaton rolled their war machines (sans drum riser tank which was only used at the NYC show) into Worcester, Massachusetts as the headliners of the 2017 edition of the New England Metal Festival.

The fans in attendance at The Palladium, most of who had been there since noon that day, had reached a fever pitch by the time fellow Swedes Katatonia finished their set and the changeover began for Sabaton. Fog machines cast a cloudy backdrop on the stage, with Sabaton’s makeshift machine gun and army helmet microphone stands gave off the atmosphere of an empty battlefield before the dawn of battle.

Q and A with Blind Revision


Jen Janet, vocalist and keyboardist of Blind Revision answered Nem’s questions.

Can you give a little biographical and historical info; who is involved in the band, and how did you guys meet up?

Myself and our guitarist, Kirk met at college. Phil, who is our bassist, was Kirk’s roommate at the time. We all decided to jam one day and we realized we seemed to mesh well together, so we decided to start a band and play shows. The rest is history. Our drummer went to high school with Kirk and we met our other guitarist, Jake, from a mutual friend in the Rhode Island music scene.

Delain/Evergrey/Kobra and the Lotus at O2 Ritz Manchester UK

Delain/Evergrey/Kobra and the Lotus at O2 Ritz Manchester UK


It was a crisp late fall afternoon on Saturday, November 12, 2016 as I, along with my girlfriend, made our way to The Ritz in Manchester England for the triple threat bill of headliner Delain, Evergrey, and Kobra and the Lotus. We arrived fairly early as I had an interview scheduled with Kobra Paige of Kobra and the Lotus. I made contact with the tour manager and we were led into the venue as Evergrey were doing their soundcheck. I waived hello to my friends, vocalist Tom Englund and guitarist Henrik Danhage who saw me from the stage and we were led into the backstage dressing rooms to conduct my interview with Kobra. It had been a year since I had last interviewed the lovely Ms. Paige when she was the special guest vocalist on Kamelot’s U.S. tour in support of Haven. As aways, Kobra was charming, engaging, and extremely wonderful to speak to. Sadly, our interview ended abruptly as Kobra was called to the stage for their soundcheck. Due to the fact that the band were unable to have a soundcheck at their previous two performances on the tour, it was imperative that Kobra joined her bandmates on stage to make sure everything was perfect for the nights show.

Kızıma…


IMG_1664Saat: 8.41 … Tam 1 saat önce doğurmuştum seni.. 14 yıl önce bugün bu saatlerde “Bebeğinizi hemen yıkayıp getiriyoruz” diyen hemşirelerin bir an önce dönmelerini bekliyordum… “Hadi artık çabuk olun.. Kızımla benim vaktimi çalmayın”..

Sonra sen geldin… dünyanın en güzel pembesini o sabah gördüm.. kundağa sımsıkı sarılmış miniminnacık bir bünye, dışarıda sadece pembe bir kafa, kendisine ait değilmiş gibi görünen bir tomar da simsiyah saç.. Hahah daha o zamanlardan havalıydın… 🙂

Sonra o kokun!!!.. Tarif edilmez, cennetten çıkma o kokun… içine çek çek bitmiyor, anlatılmaz!

Woyzeck izledim yine…


Erdal Beşikçioğlu ve Süleyman Bağcıoğlu isimlerinin aynı cümle içinde bulunduğu bir yapıt karşısında saygı duruşuna geçiyor insan tabii, ister istemez. Ama iddia ediyorum, bu iki inanılmaz sanatçıyı istediğiniz kadar tanıyın, sevin, hayranı olun; hiçbir şey sizi Woyzeck’in üzerinizde yaratacağı etkiye hazırlayamaz!
