Hello from Holland!
We're here in Tilburg, enjoying the sights and sounds of this year's ROADBURN festival. Unfortunately we couldn't make it along to Day 1 of the event due to a VOLCANO of all things, but it's going to take more than Mother Nature to stop us!
Yesterday (Friday) was Day 2 of Roadburn 2010, and we got to see a few of our favourite bands - CHURCH OF MISERY, THORR'S HAMMER and PAGAN ALTAR, as well as Tom G Warrior's TRIPTYKON for the first time.
There's been quite a lot of changes in the line-up this year, because of the volcano situation. For a start CANDLEMASS have had to cancel, the logistics of making it down to Holland has proved too difficult for them. Roadburn's director of operations, Walter, made some on-stage announcements in between sets on the main stage yesterday, you could see the stress of the situation on his face as he told the crowd about the latest changes to his well-crafted festival.
Okay, I'm off for food and water. This hangover is killing my creativity right now...
