|Crypt Trip- Ryan|
|Niko- 7 that Spells|
Seven that Spells are back at Roadburn after about 10 years and they have not played live much the last years. I spoke with Niko and the band backstage before the show and they were excited to play. First time ever to play sober! It had been quite some years since I saw them last and they are still as intense as they were. Amazing drummer and bass player. the 2nd guitar player also plays some synths and he and the bass player do some really great vocals as well. Niko played a few far out solos, inspired by AMT. Cool and powerful set.
Finally, I got a chance to sit down after almost 5 hrs of continuous music to catch some of Grails on the main stage. I had seen them play a beautiful show way back here on the main stage but this was something different now. They used to play this beautiful post rock style stuff but now it was more heavy, dramatic and nearly space rock but sadly, they seem to cut all the songs short, just as I felt like they were going to go somewhere big, the songs all ended. Damn. I was really left wanting so much more… Very cool films they showed, some a bit disturbing.
Set List: Sorterargatan, 354, Tera, Bergslagen, Europa, Artefacts, Island, Fundament, Veras Tema, Sersophane
|At the Gates|
Anders decided we should go see Temple Fang again at 13:30. I was a bit sceptical to start the day so early but I had not spent hardly anytime over at the other big hall and this was the time to go see the art exhibits, look at records, etc. so we went. Wow. I was so glad. I was right up in front with a lot of the Dutch regulars, JJ from the Obelisk, etc. Sound was amazing and the band played a more tight and killer grooving show. This is going to be a great band. All the best aspects of heavy 70s rock, with nice dual guitar parts, cool and unique guitar riffs and two guys with good solid voices. They blew we away. Saw the last song of the set from the back with JJ and had some nice talks as we made our way out.

|Travis and Zach (JOY, Volcano, Pharlee)|
I also had a bit of time to look at the amazing art that was displayed over at the Pit Stop area between the Hall of Fame and Koepelhal. Very cool stuff.
The Dutch band, Super Sonic Blues were going to do a set. They played last year as well and we really liked them. I spoke to the guitar player a few times. Super nice guys and they still sound good. This was a great set, really a killer sound from their amps, authentic 1973. Just some simple but excellent songs. They did one cover song but I did not recognize it. Fun set.
