Milano – Frontiers Rock Festival II

Milano last weekend was great. Daniel and I flew in on Friday and checked in at a beautiful hotel where both VIP-ticket holders and the other bands were staying. We arrived quite late but was just in time for the intimate acoustic show that was arranged for the VIP-ticket holders only. Unfortunately I had to pass on performing that night due to a bad cold that had affected my voice and vocal chords. But we received a very warm welcoming by fans and old friends and finally got to meet the people at Frontiers Records in person after having communicating via e-mail and skype for the past 8 years!

Saturday started with a bright and early morning and my favorite when travelling, the hotel breakfast buffet! A couple of Italian coffees later we’re off the meet the band and rehearse for the one and only time before sound check at lunch. Since I don’t have a band for my solo project some amazing Italian musicians came to my aid. Alessandro Del Vecchio, Francesco Marras and Nic Mazzucconi and of course Daniel backed me up on drums. And as the professionals they are the guys were well rehearsed and also super nice!

The show must go on!

As I mentioned I got a really bad cold about three or four weeks prior to the gig and I just never got better. So finally my doctor prescribed me cortisone to take a few hours before the show and thankfully it worked. I was able to perform and sing without feeling like my throat was going to  be ripped apart and from what I’ve heard and experienced after the show the fans and Frontiers really loved it. So thank you modern medicine!

Sunday we spent in the sun eating gelato and having lunch with the guys of Eclipse at a small Italian trattoria a few blocks away from the hotel. Great company, good food, espresso cofee and the sun! Oh beautiful sun…how we miss you in the north. It’s time to make your entrance!


This is the number of gelatos I had…. mmm! only in Italy!


I was craving a “caffé latte”. Was expecting a slightly bigger size though…

All in all it was a great weekend and we had such a good time meeting friends and fans from all over the world, taking pictures and signing CDs. Thank you Serafino Perugino and everyone at Frontiers Records for an amazing weekend! Hope to see you again next year!

Last day of x-mas leave

Eller jullov som vi säger i Sverige…

Christmas is over, the new year have begun and I hurt my back on New Years Eve so I’ll be seeing my chiropractor next week. This may sound like a bad start for 2015 but I’m actually really looking forward to this year! I can admit that it would have been nice to go for long walks in the beautiful winter sun but I got to stay on my couch and watch hour after hour of good movies instead, not so bad at all when you think about it!

So what do I have in store for 2015, you ask. Well, I won’t spoil you with the details but a) I’ll be playing in Milan in April (have you bought your tickets yet???) b) I have a very promising semester in school starting tomorrow and c) possibly 2015 will be the year Beth out of Hell sees the light for the first time!

Frankly, I just can’t wait to get things started!

What are your plans for 2015? Any new year’s resolutions? Feel free to share them in the comments!
