16.11.2008. Dark Tranquillity, Poisonblack, Fear My Thoughts
After flying to Dortmund to cover some more HEIDENFEST, ShutterBLAST returned to Munich straight away to cover DARK TRANQUILLITY, POISONBLACK and FEAR MY THOUGHTS.
Much to our disappointment, however, POISONBLACK interrupted their show after only one song, explaining the small number of photos.

FEAR MY THOUGHTS
05.11.2008. HEIDENFEST - Just the beginning
ShutterBLAST will extensively cover the 'Winter-Paganfest' that is the Heidenfest over Europe.
The package tour features great pagan metal bands such as old time supporters FINNTROLL, Irish pagans PRIMORDIAL, ELUVEITIE, EQUILIBRIUM, CATAMENIA and MANEGARM. On specific dates, local support is expected as well as special guests such as ENSLAVED. Bring out your kilts and drinking horns, turn up the Humppa and saddle your donkeys to head towards your local fighting pits!
First stop: the Munich show on the 1st of November. For the record: the show was banned because of Bavarian law 'Tanzverbot' on the All-Saints-Day. The authorities forbade the concert so the promoter pushed the event back until midnight, leaving over 2,000 fans of the sold out concert waiting for several hours. The result: frustrated bands, frustrated fans and a show that went backwards: FINNTROLL first, the PRIMORDIAL, ELUVEITIE, etc, until 5 in the morning the next day.
To add to the confusion, it's clear that the in-house light technician decided to go home as well, leaving the stage in complete darkness, much to us photographers' distress. Nothing could save these photos, except maybe the presence of Finnish musicians not on the bill but who really saved the week end.
Of course, the Munich Backstage being the closest thing to ShutterBLAST's Headquarters, we were there, with mead in one hand and a camera in the other. Photos will be online soon, so stay tuned!
