That time of the week again.

Should soon head to Helsinki to meet up with the Railio band, from there to Kerava to play some rock och roll tonight. Tomorrow it's Himos. On Sunday I'll drag my ass home for a few days and then it's time to start the "Lapland tour" with Timo. Busy as a prostitutes beaver, but so what :)

On my way to Helsinki

Tonight it's my BFF's housewarming party. No shows, no writing, not gonna even think of that stuff. Just chill. Tomorrow I'll travel to Kemi and on Monday it's back to school.

Oh yeah, almost forgot

Mr.Railio's album is now out, so go and buy it and support my man on his mission, the album isn't half bad and even Yours Truly plays on 3 tracks :)

More of the same

Work that is, of course. Been way to busy to write here, travelling all over and working on the lyrics when not doing shows or travelling. Had great shows with Antti & The Boys during the weekend, my new bandmates seem to be a fantastic bunch of people. It can be a bit nervous at first, jumping in on a band to play with people you've never even met before, but I can already tell that we are gonna get along just fine :)

I'll try and catch some sleep now, been feeling a bit under the weather today, and I should get back to work tomorrow.

Oh yeah, by the way, before anyone asks what I think of the new SA single: I've only heard it once, but I think it's actually pretty good. Not as good as "I Have a Right" off the previous album, I think that song is brilliant, but this one is not bad at all either. Very catchy chorus :)

Well this isn't stressful at all...

Should finish the lyrics for the Arion album this week, but of course I will also be having rehearsals and doing 2 shows. How fucking delightful. Well, at least the album is going to be pretty damn good, so it's worth it, but damn. How did it come to this again? Stress and hurry, every fucking album, every fucking time...

A Blastbeat from the past

Tried to write some lyrics, didn't work out so I started to listen to some music. Somehow I ended up listening to stuff from when I was a teen, my sinful black metal past :) Takes me back and doesn't sound half bad, kick ass! :)

Love some of the black metal stuff, "The Dusk and Her Embrace" album by Cradle of Filth is my favorite (And if there are any black metallers out there dissin' this, I know it's mainstream, but it's great!). Hail Satan! :)

Throwback Sunday

... or Monday, it's past midnight. Found an old pic from my computer, it's me and someone who can actually play the fucking guitar:

2009, I think...

Yesterday I drank, today I work (and drink, a little)

Last night I attended a show as a member of the audience for the first time in a long time. Went to see Turmion Kätilöt, and damn did they kick some serious ass! One of the best shows I've seen in a LONG time. Loved it!

Now I'll have some beers and try to write some Arion-lyrics. 3 songs to go. Have to try and get them pretty much finished by Tuesday night, as on Wednesday I'll go to Helsinki to rehearse with the band and on Thursday we have a show. Probably won't make it home in a week or so. So, lets write some lyrics. Since you guys can't really help me with this I'll leave you with a great song from Turmion Kätilöt and an advice to get wasted :)

This has been a good day

Today I went to the gym and after that I've pretty much finished the intro I was writing for the Railio shows, just need to make some final tweaks and mix it. I also reworked lyrics for one Arion song and that should be pretty much done now as well, and as a cherry for the sundae that is this day I just received from Matias a sung version of a song that I wrote lyrics to yesterday, and it sounds frickin' awesome! It ain't half bad being me these days. Granted, I'm a bit overworked, but I love what I do :)

And it's worktime again.

My calendar is starting to fill up nicely again. Today I've been mainly working on an intro for the Railio shows and now I thought I'd rework some Arion lyrics. I ain't complaining, it's all good :)

Another year, another layout.

I got bored with the old layout so I started fucking around with it. The new pic is from the show we played with Deep Purple in Oulu, courtesy of Harri Rauhanummi.

Had great time playing the two shows, have to admit even I was a bit nervous to get up in front of approx 4500 people to play my first show ever with the new bandmates, but it went well. And Deep Purple crew were awesome and insanely nice, big thank you to them for making everything really easy for us.
