and now it’s time to speak a little bit about our show. Well, what can I say? For the first time we used massive candles in front of the stage, despite it was afternoon (but remember, our fire is there not to light up but to INVOKE & PURIFY!) and what we had back from that marvellous crowd was a pure and constant flux of energy. Can you imagine a crowd screaming and getting mad from the beginning to the end? Well, we had it: one of the most wonderful crowd we ever experienced. AMAZING.
After the Ritual completion, we spent hours and hours among our fans for massive photo-shots, autographs and some nice chat. And even with the risk of repeating myself I have to scream it out loud once again: WE LOVE YOU, UKRAINIAN BOYS & GIRLS! By the Blessing of Darkness, we will be back there soon!
The second day was blessed again with some nice conversation with the Shining guys: Niklas K. spoke to us some perfect italian words and then he told us about his past sojourn in Sicily and about his strong friendship with Davide Toraro (WATAIN, ex-DISSECTION, ex-ABORYM), while me and the Bong Master discussed for a while about our musical tastes and about foreing cultures in countries like Turkey and Asia.
And sticking to the topic, I have to inform you that the SHINING live performance was just A M A Z I N G: Niklas is one of the best frontmen I ever experienced and his intensity while singing “Ohm (Sommar Med Siv)” really moved me to tears.
Through the labyrinths of Chaos, I’m sure that our paths will cross once again.
