We had to look deeply into our official extreme music blog Thesaurus to find the right words for our reaction to the report we just saw about a new tour. “Awesome” was just too trite. “Stupifying” was too understated. And then there were those two words that just perfectly captured our feelings. Yep — HOLY SHIT!
Get your battle axes and fur pelts out of storage, strap on your drinking horns, and send the women, children, and livestock into the hills. The Norsemen are coming!
The bands: AMON AMARTH, ELUVEITIE, HOLY GRAIL.
