PHOTO REPORT: DIMMU BORGIR + KREATOR LIVE Forum Karlin, PRAGUE,​ dec 9, 2018


European heart, Prague, was exposed to some legendary squads from Scandinavia and closer Germany.  

Norwegian (black) metal squad has shown Prague very nice concert  while introducing their last album Eonian released this year. Also, we could hear some their older hit songs as Dimmu Borgir or Progenies of The Great Apocalypse. Dimmu’s show was closed by their mighty  Mourning Palace from Enthrone Darkness Triumphant.

After Dimmu Borgir, German thrash metal legends played their set with some projection behind themselves and also in the front during the intro. The music was still thrash metal but full of pretty modern sound. To me, it seemed they had more fans in the hall than Norwegians before. Maybe the alcohol in between bands during  the pause has helped in this matter a little.  

Concert went well and sound was very good. Some fans complained about the sound quality, but I was pleased. There was only small hickup in the entrance regarding some formal stuff, but thankfully it was resolved…

Thanks to the bands for nice performance they have delivered, Nuclear Blast, Pragokoncert Bohemia and staff for making this concert possible and pretty much smooth.

Floor Jansen and Jørn Viggo Lofstad

Interview by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

 

NORTHWARD, is the hard rock project from well-renowned musicians Floor Jansen (Nightwish) and Jorn Viggo Lofstad (Pagan’s Mind), who will be releasing their debut self-titled album on October 19th, 2018 through Nuclear Blast.

The project sees a step away from both musicians normal style and approach and is a very diverse album. It was during the ‘All Star Jam’ at Progpower USA Festival in 2007, when current Nightwish singer Floor Jansen and Pagan’s Mind guitarist Jorn Viggo Lofstad first performed together on stage for some cover songs. Their mutual love for hard rock bought them together and they composed an album quickly after in 2008 but due to their other music commitments that album was put on hold until now, with the release being ten year’s later after it was first made. Floor seized the opportunity to get the project back on track in 2017 when Nightwish took a break and luckily it was time, so 2018 will finally see the release of their anticipated musical side project Northward.
