[I think the name of the bar we went to was Medusa - by the way , we especially loooooved walking around Gamla Stan at night - so beautiful (almost fairytale like!
) Cool you went to Wacken 2009 as well - I missed the 2009 Grand Magus performance you mentioned - so cool that AA, etc. came on stage! 2009 was also my first time, and loved it so much, that upon returning I immediately made plans to go to Wacken 2010. For that trip (travelled on my own that time), I combined Wacken with a pre-trip to Oslo, Norway - another city I had never been to and really wanted to visit. I don't think Oslo is nearly as beautiful as Stockholm, but I visited so many wonderful sites and museums (too many to list here - but a few of the highlights were the Viking Ship Museum
and Fram Polar Ship Museum.) An added bonus was that one of my favorite Norwegian bands, Ulver, happened to be playing (at the Opera House no less!) while I was there. Between Oslo and Wacken - it was quite a dream trip for me! On another note, I see you are a W.A.S.P. fan - even though I don't know them much, I did see most of the Wacken gig and thought they were great! I need to check them out more - will wait till after the cruise though since I'm still trying to familarize myself with some of the cruise bands I don't know much! And I leave for Miami 2 weeks from tomorrow!
We'll definitely have to have a toast to Stockholm (and of course all those great Swedish metal bands!
) on the cruise - I'm on Deck 6 and my name is Laura. Cheers and see you and all soon![/quote]
Gamla Stan is a really cute place I agree, did you see the cannon balls that were stuck in the walls at the big square where the church is ?
I´ve only been to Oslo once for a rock
weekend so I didn´t get much time to see the sights, but there´s still time I suppose
Yeah I´ve liked W.A.S.P. for a long time, and I have been lucky to get to know Doug ( the guitarrist , he´s my friend´s boyfriend ) so whenever they´re in Europe I go to as many shows I can...to meet up with him and his girlfriend and to hear them play of course !
Blackie has an amazing voice and I love their albums
I can burn a CD for you and bring to the cruise for you to check out
I´m also trying to familarize myself with some of the cruise bands ,as some of them I´ve never heard before
I´ll come and look for you on deck 6 if I don´t see you before in Miami
See you all real SOON !!
