„We’re saddened by the death of SLAYER guitarist, Jeff Hanneman. Our prayers and best wishes to SLAYER and Jeff’s family.“

Und last but not least hat sich Robb Flynn Reported by Machine Head to word with a long farewell letter, which he in his published blogt can:

“Still can’t believe that Jeff Hanneman from Slayer is dead, things like that just don’t happen. Thrashers don’t die??!! WTF!!??

I’m not going to sit here and say how him and I were best buds or something, we definitely weren’t, I’d barely call us acquaintances, I did 8 tours and over 120 shows with the Dude and honestly, I never really got to “know him”. I was always Closer with Kerry. Jeff was super quiet, really kept to himself, would get rowdy when he was drunk, but was a bit aloof, and seemed annoyed at the people partying around him despite the fact that he himself would be getting hammered.

I can remember some good hangs with him though. The first was in Basel, Switzerland back in November, 1994 when Machine Head was main support to Slayer on the Divine Intervention tour. It was one of those shows were something so random happens it just never leaves you, in this case, the show was Sponsored by Chesterfield cigarettes and every kid entering the show got 2 free packs of smokes. I’ve never seen so much smoke in a venue in my life. I remember walking onstage and yelling at our roadie / everything-guy Mike Scum, “DUDE, turn off the fuckin’ smoke machine”, he said “YOOOOO, it’s not the smoke machine bro, it’s the cigarettes!” It was damn near impossible to Breath onstage. After the show we were hanging backstage and Jeff walked back, we started bitching about the Crazy cigarette show, and he invited me back to the dressing room to grab a beer, we sat down and chatted for a while, and then I went all Slayer-nerd on him and started grilling him on what songs he wrote.

me: “Who wrote Angel Of Death?”
Jeff: “I did”
me: “Lyrics too?”
Jeff: “Yep”
me: “Reign In Blood?”
Jeff: “Me”
me: “Dead Skin Mask?”
Jeff: “Yep”
me: “South Of Heaven?”
Jeff: “Me”
me: “Black Magic?”
Jeff: “You know it”
me: “Hell Awaits?”
Jeff: “Yep”

Jeff Hanneman: RIP
On and on it went, that man wrote both the music and lyrics to a large goddamn portion of my favorite Slayer songs. He was a huge influence on my songwriting growing up in particular with arrangements and the bold use of key changes. The one thing Slayer band always had over so many other bands is they were all over the guitar neck when it came to key changes. Leads would be in some of the most random keys ever, but somehow it made it all that much more frantic, and when the chorus kicked back in, Boom! CRUSHING! Set up perfectly. He was one of the few metal heads I met who never really got into Pantera, he told me he “liked some stuff”, but thought they we’re “too bluesy at times”, and that he “liked more evil notes or sad riffs”

Another good memory was sharing a tour bus on the August 2001 Korean / Japan / Australia tour, it was all fly-dates and hotels, we were sharing crew, tour manager and manager, so we all rode on the bus together to and from the airport to the hotel every day. Sometimes the rides were an hour or two, so you’d just all BS and hang. One time a kid in Australia bum-rushed the bus while we were all sitting in it, hammered after partying one night. He was desperate for autographs and came on the bus screaming (what else?) "SLAAAAAAAAAYYYYYEEEEERRRR!!!” He then saw me and went all, “Oh shit, Robb Flynn, mate I fuckin’ LOVE Machine Head, but it’s fuckin’ SLAAAAAAAYYYYYYYEEEERRRRR” I looked the fucker right in the eye and slurred, “Oh just FUCK RIGHT OFF!!” Hannamen fell out dying, he laughed for 10 minutes straight, cracked him up, that slightly feminine high pitched giggle that he always did.

Dude backed me when Kerry King and I were beefin all that time long ago, he would come up to me at festivals and would talk, just be normal. He even backed me in Decibel magazine when they asked him about the beef, saying “Robb is a good dude”, and that “Kerry was like the girlfriend of the band, always beefin’ with someone”. I got a good laugh outta that.

The last memory I’ll share is from the American leg of the Divine Intervention tour in March 1995. It was Slayer, Biohazard supporting, and Machine Head opening. We were playing the International Ballroom in Atlanta Georgia. He had been sitting out some of the new songs from “Divine”, which was odd to me. We were hanging out in their dressing room before the show, just him and I, and I mustered up the nerve to ask him what the deal with it was. At first he joked that he just “didn’t feel like learning them, didn’t like ‘em, Kerry wrote them”, he was chuckling, and then he stopped. He looked down and got serious. He said he’d been having a lot of pain in his wrists, his hands and wrists were going numb all the time, and would go numb during those songs Because they were really fast, then he started to cry. It was a startling confession. I offered some awkward feel-good comment, but he just continued to cry, and I decided to sit there in the silence with him for a minute. He gave me a hug, and said “Whoa!”, and laughed walked out toward the stage, turned back and said “thanks dude”.

It was an intense moment, one of those rare, intense Moments you have with someone, let alone with someone from another band.

It made me really respect the dude.

That’s the Jeff I’m gonna remember.

To Kerry, Tom, Dave, Paul, Rick Sales Mgmt and Jeff’s family, my sincere condolences.

R.I.P brother.”

Sonisphere 2011 – Dawn of the Joggeli

„Task of art it is today, Bring chaos into order.“ wrote Theodor W. Adorno in Minima Moralia und die Organisation und Koordination des Sonisphere Festivals in Basel war von Chaos geprägt, wie auch diverse Bands in Ansagen bemerkten und man konnte am letzten Freitag von Glück sprechen, that nothing happened. But there were also shows by hammer Hatebreed, Slipknot, ELUVEITIE and Iron Maiden. Bands super, Weather super, Not rest. But the OK Swiss Sonisphere this can, nach der letztjährigen Schlammschlacht obviously afford… – denn es hätte auch schlechter sein können. Die grossartigen Bands liessen so über einiges hinwegsehen und dem grössten Teil der Metalheads ein Lächeln ins Gesicht zu zaubern.

Last Friday, it was time again: Sonisphere set up camp, for the second time and after Maiden voyage in Jonschwil, The festival took place this time in Basel St. Jakob Stadium along with revulsion instead. Das Wetter zeigte sich von seiner guten Seite und die schier unerschöpflichen Anzahl an Bands liessen einem auch etwas über die organisatorischen Mängel hinwegsehen – but does not forget, because it became clear already with the start to the festival on Friday, to really understand what the Sonisphere: Profit maximization! Unfortunately the game were the times of the Bands, welche bereits im Vorfeld x-mal geändert wurde, at the beginning of the day switched back and compresses, was weder bei Fans noch Bands für Begeisterung gesorgt haben dürfte, mir persönlich aber nicht wirklich eine Rolle spielte.

Der Bändeltausch war dilettantisch organisiert und die Bändelchen super, because these gibts 1:1 For 120 Francs to buy at King Flyer… 1000 Stuck, the link to it was even printed and not enough, mit einem Ticket konnte man soviel Bändel holen wie man wollte und damit Freunden und Bekannten eine Freude machen. But this should be only the beginning of the organized chaos, because the festival was for weeks under a bad sign, since the event will lack the Football Spectators- ins Leichtathletikstadion verschoben werden musste und es dort nicht möglich war, die bezahlten Sitzplätze in Anspruch nehmen zu können. So erhielten sämtliche Käufer eines Sitzplatztickets zum Einlass Bons für zwei Getränke und eine Sausage. Doch wo zum Teufel könnte man die Bons für die versprochenen gratis Getränke und Wurst einlösen? 90% der Catering-Stände wollten auf alle Fälle von diesen Bons nichts Knowledge. Also had a strange, that once you had entered the Metal Festival, als erstes ein Törtchenstand zu sehen war… Oh well – I knew something hitherto, but might as well be nice, to Hatebreed Coffee reinzuziehen and cakes. After such a Concert needs of ausgepowerte Metalhead well known, a sugar shock…

But we come first to the main festival, the Music! Unfortunately, you could also these, at the beginning of the festival is not really enjoy, Sick Puppies at the Apollo Stage, notabene der Hauptbühne des Anlasses, It was a power outage, was bereits wieder Zweifel an der Professionalität der Organisation aufkommen liess. Cataract at the Red Bull Stage one was not let in, as the hall was already full. Die Security wurde dabei irgendwelchen Studenten und Teenies überlassen, die auch des zweifelhafte Vergnügen hatten, enttäuschten Fans vor verschlossenen Türen abzuweisen, was bei stärker alkholosierten Fans locker hätte eskalieren können. Was given masses For us announced some sun, so fläzten wir uns in der Nähe der Apollo Stage auf den Rasen, liessen den ersten Ärger drown evaporate… and it came in a little enjoyment of Mr Big, which does not really correspond to my Gusto.

That was the first show that you could really enjoy with Dave Wyndorf, his sign of rotation- und Angelpunkt der drogengeschwängerten Monster Magnet. Nach Dave mit seinen Mannen war bereits ein Höhepunkt des Sonisphere’s angesagt: Hatebreed! Just amazing how these guys have understood right from the beginning the audience to captivate. Höllisch laut und mit einem so fetten Sound, stand still do not know the guys. With such fat riffs, there is simply no excuse. Honest emotions, ungestüme Leidenschaft, ein fetter Sound und besonders mächtige Energie. Prior to the Bohemia stage the audience was almost closed in motion, Jamey Jasta tobte über die Bretter und heizte die schwitzende Meute always further and celebrating with the best sound and killer tracks like „Destroy Everything“, „This Is Now“, „Live For This“ or „Doomsayer“ a huge party.

Monster Magnet - Crop Circle (Complete song)

the ELUVEITIE and Slipknot at the same time had to play, war eine kleine Unschönheit, die so manchen Fan ärgerte, as well as the marketplace, welcher völlig Jenseits eingerichtet war, because who buys flip-flops on a Metal-Festival? Auf all den meinen unzähligen Festivals an den ich teilgenommen habe, I've never – but never did – Flip flops seen for sale! the 4 dl Wasser dabei für 5 Franken was sold, fits again into the whole picture of the profit maximization, but not enough so, an den Ständen durften keine Flaschen verkauft werden, während Leute offen mit Partyfässern reinspazierten. Ich weiss nicht wie begeistert Iron Maiden wären, wenn sie wüssten, that you could just walk in without any obstacle with firearms. I've seen a lot, aber sowas Lächerliches und Unprofessionelles ist mir noch selten untergekommen, denn selbst einen Raketenwerfer reinzunehmen wäre kein Problem gewesen. :Guns:

Doch kommen wir wieder zurück auf die Musik, Anerkennung verdienen selbstverständlich weitere Sonisphere-Exponenten wie Hammerfall, Mastodon and ELUVEITIE, welche allsamt grossartige Shows boten und die Fans absolut zu überzeugen vermochten. Also Chrigel Eluveitie had noticed the organizational chaos and tried to loosen up a little joke the whole, Chaosphere ist nur einer der Ausdrücke die fielen. As always with his band offered their melodic death metal with Celtic melodies that, what was expected of them: Rock, groove, dance, Jump, sound, träumen, release.

Seit dem letztjährigen (Drugs-)Tod des Slipknot bassist Paul D. Grey is the band from Iowa occurred rarely. Despite or perhaps because of it offered Slipknot a fireworks. Auf der Hauptbühne gaben sie ein Stelldichein, how great was the furious. Although it is daylight and sun screwed the bizarre-looking clownish metallers the visual- und Hörerlebnis in sphärische Höhen. Rotormässig in die Höhe schraubte sich überdies Joey Jordison mitsamt seiner Drum-Station und nebst Pyrotechnik gaben Slipknot Stage Diving zum Besten. About 90 Minutes took the gig, of not a few times viewers casualties and helpers as accomplices industrious minutes gave. Unfortunately, you could see the screens of the Apollo Stage little from behind.

Die Verpflegungsstände am Sonisphere (not in the Hall), were hygienically swinish. Prefabricated Hamburger lay open in a box. Das Geld wurde mit blossen Händen angenommen, um dann mit selbiger den Käse aufs Fleisch und das Brötchen und Fleisch zusammen zu drücken. Die gleiche Hand kratzt sich Sekunden später im Gesicht, hebt vom Boden Abfall auf und kümmert sich anschliessend ungewaschen wieder ums Eating. Not one person on the stand does so, no, es tun alle und im Münzstock lagen Frites und Geld, partially mixed in with food and. Da wünsch ich doch guten Appetit. And friends, 9 Franken für ein 4 Bissen Pizzastück ist nicht nur leicht übertrieben, but borders on usury, because one is only a sip of water, from the cup with gold rim :)

Doch kommen wir wieder zurück auf die Musik, there still big headliners such as Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden queue. Even if it does not manage Mr Cooper, to impress me vocally, so ist es doch spannend zu sehen für welche Szene der nächste Song wohl herhalten soll. Man hört ihm einfach an, that „I’m Eighteen“ long, long can not agree, seine Vorstellungskraft und Spass am Spiel mit verrückten Requisiten hat dieses Alter zum Glück kaum überholt. Mit einem beeindruckenden Schatz an Vitalität, Energie und Groteske führt uns der 63 jährige Altrocker durch sein Theater aus Kitsch und Selbstinszenierung.

Völlig nicht kitischig waren Iron Maiden. Die eiserne Jungfrau brachte zu Beginn überwiegend Songs von „The Final Frontier“, her latest album and perish in which I killed would not warm. Matching the new disc ballerte the intro along with the following „Final Frontier“ and „El Dorado“ from the speakers. Die Bühne war, as almost always, well designed or. inspired by the latest output, that is, a science fiction landscape – gesäumt von zwei Funktürmen nebst Sternenhimmel. It was a true classic: „2 Minutes To Midnight“. It's still fascinating, wie topfit die sechs Herren über die Bühne fegen. Und als später auch noch die 20 Meter-Variante über die Bühne glotzt und böse mit den roten Augen funkelt, is the world anyway in order. OK, the guy does look now like a space hog, but damn, it is still Eddie. Screeeeeaaaammmmm for me Basel, Screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaammmmmmmmmm for meeeee!

Ganz grosses Kino und im Kuppeldach und Bühnenhintergrund funkeln Lichter wie Sterne. Irgendwie galaktisch wunderschön. But that was not all, what was offered the eye: Zu vielen Songs wurden passende riesige Stoffbilder wie Theaterkulissen in den Bühnenhintergrund gezogen und Eddie fehlte auch nicht.

Und wieder kamen daraufhin ein paar neuere Stücke („Blood Brothers“, „The Wicker Man“ and „When The Wild Wind Blows“), to „The Evil That Men Do“ initiated the block of classics. Ab diesem Moment war es dann wohl auch um die grössten Skeptiker geschehen: All the same, whether the melancholic passages of „Fear Of The Dark“ or the godlike twin leads of „Iron Maiden“: Wer in diesen Minuten keine Gänsehaut bekam oder so derbe mitgröhlte, dass er am nächsten Tag kiloweise Hustenbonbons futtern musste, who on that night something wrong!

Iron Maiden live at Sonisphere Basel 24.6.2011 - Blood Brothers

Pickpockets, angeblich aus Rumänien, machten als weiteres Übel sämtliche Stages unsicher und so manchen Metalhead um ein iPhone oder Portemonnaie ärmer. It was clear, dass es sich bei den Tätern um keine „Metaler“ could act, denn ich hätte noch nie erlebt das sich diese gegenseitig bestehlen. Aber wie sagt man so schön, someday is the first time, vielleicht gilt dies auch für die Flip-Flops. At least pickpockets were already organized at Greenfield (!) on the way, dieses Phänomen scheint also so langsam an Open-Airs Usus zu werden.

Über die diesjährige Sonisphere-Veranstaltung könnte ich noch viel schrieben, after all, were also further GWAR, In Flames, Judas Priest and so on start. Doch zu viele Worte verderben das Textejakulat und so hoffe ich einfach auf fruchtbaren Boden für Kritik, because somehow I got at the present chaos again and again the Mud Jonschwil 2010 to mind. Aber bekanntlich sind alle guten Dinge drei und vielleicht schafft man es nächstes Jahr endlich ein professionelles und rundum überzeugendes Festival in den Küchen von Outfield Productions und die Zürcher Konzertagentur Free & Virgin to sizzle, because this year they have even more than anything else splattered with fame. Nächstes Jahr muss für mich schon ein Hammer Line-up am Start sein, I'll be back… or I'm on the Park and watch me free concert an :)

In Flames - Deliver us (Official Video)

Remind me I’m golden,
The fortress Above The Sun
Why don’t you stand away with me?

For the river and the path
For the ones who (have names?)
On the shore

forever I can’t find
Struggling in a world undefined
Or destroyed

I don’t want it to be
I’m not in to live

Fly into the distance
Disappear for a while
I can’t make sense of this
But we’re here, today,
Feeling alive
It starts to fall apart
Let me take control
(Remember this?)

A (prisoner of war?)
Something I will finally get
Deliver us
Deliver words you share

Does it really matter
I give the world to you
If you just

Fly into the distance
Disappear for a while
I can’t make sense of this
But we’re here, today, alive

Fly into the distance
Disappear for a while
I can’t make sense of this
But we’re here, today, alive

DBD: Sounds of a Playground Fading – In Flames

Here the theme song for the new In Flames‘ Album: „Sounds of a Playground Fading“. Fetzt quite tidy :State:

In Flames - Sounds of a Playground Fading (Official Video)

You can find all you need
The message is in the silence
Whisper words to calm your mind
Reach inside another playing come-around

It answers
We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind?

Sounds of a Playground Fading

Staring into bright lights
I am what I’ve done
It is useless to hide
An empty chamber
Guess I was part of a plan

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind?

Sounds of a Playground Fading

We’re running out of time
Can’t seem to recognize
What put is here in the first place
Counting down the days, beginning of the end

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind?

We are ghosts in a concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind?

DBD: Pinball Map – In Flames

Video Thumbnail
In Flames - Pinball Map

As I aim for that bright white day
Conflict serum is my aura
It seems that life’s so fragile
I guess I’ll fly some other time

I lack from superhighway thoughts
Won’t live as long as the city lights
Soaked by underwater times
Electric splash on a midnight drive

Wish I could rape the day,
just something radical
Lost the sense of Sweet things
Who’s gonna take me widely?

Guided by the pinball map
The driver, still unknown to me
Who was sent to glorify?
Before we injected this common pride

Sometimes I don’t belong
Release me from your world
Pacified by the small things in life
I wait for earthquakes to rearrange

Never been able to use the force
I only have it read to me
Despite all the misguided faith
I’ll find a place in this mess

Wish I could rape the day,
just something radical
Lost the sense of sweet things
Who’s gonna take me widely?

Guided by the pinball map
The driver, still unknown to me
Who was sent to glorify?
Before we injected this common pride

Early morning Moments
A glimpse of joy
But soon it’s over and I return to dust
As I try to be
Everything and everyone
I shrivel up and Waste Away

Wish I could rape the day,
just something radical
Lost the sense of sweet things
Who’s gonna take me widely?

Guided by the pinball map
The driver, still unknown to me
Who was sent to glorify?
Before we injected this common pride
