Copenhell day one was Awesome! I arrived at the hell gates around 14.00 – 14.30 and came straight in. There was a welcoming party made out of a handfull of zombies. They where to busy to eat my brain for some woman was trying to film them. Oh well, we are not here for the zombies anyway. Getting in there immediately saw that they have made some changes around compared to last year. The biggest change was prolly the stage where the different danish artists will be performing. Last year they where performing on a very small stage wedged in between two iron containers. And no room for people. Bad and sad. This year however, they changed the place for stage, and now they put it where the second big stage was last year. Stage two is now moved over to the other site of the main stage across the festival square. Much much much better. So now the danish band actually have a place worth there time to play on.
Great. I saw three bands this loving friday, with the sun up high and the beer cold. First band up was “Barricade” Not my kind of music, but the guys played there heart out. Tough job to be the band that opens up the entire festival. At 18.00 my Brothers band “The Interbeing” went on stage, and there was a shit load of people there. They did a very good job and the crowd was pleased. Seen them enough times to see that it was not a halv bad show, and they poured the heart and soul into it. Of cause it’s heart to get prober sound when the wind blows and take the sound all around with it.
One of the bands i looked forward for and who played on the Main stage was the awesome “Killswitch Engage”. They did a very good job as well, and i was happy. Saturday brings a lot of other bands as well, here amongst Marilyn Manson as ending act. Friday we ended up with Slayer. I’ve ssen them before and i went homewards around midway. Only a few “Pendler” busses are in place to bring everybody home from the festival, so i wanted to be there a bit before everybody else.
Once again a very good day, with friends and beer (who are my friends except for the day after) with everything a good festival contains. Music, beer and overpissed toilets. Looking forward to last day.
