I will endevour to upload more images from our excursion over there as soon as possible. However, for now, this is my favourite from last weekend, capturing around one bar table the following noted luminaries and men of action. From left to right. : Mr Felipe Plaza (Procession/Solstice), Randolph T. Bastard (Solstice/The Lamp Of Thoth), General Richard Walker (Solstice), Sir Lenny (Asomvel/Solstice), Field Marshall Trummer (Atlantean Kodex) and Jonas (Procession). No wigs, no designer drugs, no publicists or any other crap, just a bunch of guys at a great festival sharing a beer.

Well, it would seem we will be attending and playing the UP THE HAMMERS Festival in Athens later this week having found a suitable guest singer. Naturally we are quite pleased how this as turned out after our recent run of ill fortune, and we intend to do the best we can with the set we've been able to learn for this. And so, our thanks go out to the mighty General Felipe Plaza of Chilean Doom masters, PROCESSION, who at short notice jumped on a plane and came and rehearsed with us earlier this week at our secret underground bunker.
As you can see from the above picture we introduced Felipe to the joys of Thatchers Cider, and Tenants Super Strength. And as expected, he took to them both, like a duck to water. I really do think Felipe is one of the best singers in metal right now, with a majestic quality to his voice lacking in so many other bands, so I know it will be something a little bit different and a treat indeed for fans of real metal. It would only remain for me to say, see you there if you going. Over and out.
