Once you get to the mighty metal mecca Stockholm, make sure to visit the legendary record store Sound Pollution and all the local metal bars you could. Also try to find time to go to “Skogskyrkogården”, Stockholm’s Forest Cemetery, hosting the famous stone cross so to take picture in front of it just like Entombed as seen in their “Left Hand Path” album!

We are proud to be part of this event as we have few metalheads from Bulgaria attending. Our country is among the nearly 30 countries presented at the festival this year at it’s second edition! Now that’s a great job, District 19!

Cheers and see you for some serious headbang this weekend!

Final line-up for the October edition of Close-up cruise announced. Tickets still available.

Metal, booze and lots of great bands on a Viking ship! What is it? Where? When? Do NOT calm down, do not sit back and relax, do not waste more time, but check all the information about the upcoming metal cruise organized by the Swedish Close-up magazine.

And don’t be quick screaming at us: ”We are poor metalheads, we are not (tattooed) millionaires!” This cruise isn’t like the others. This one will not cost you a fortune like Full Metal Cruise of Wacken or 70 000 Tons of Metal. You can get in Close-up cruise as cheap as for 60 euro per person. The price includes bed in cabin for 4 people and access to all the live shows on board. Is that affordable now or what?

Close-Up Cruise 21

The October edition of the Close –Up cruise will take place on 26-27th October and will offer the following live music treasure: MARDUK, ENSLAVED, ROTTING CHRIST, MYRKUR, THYRFING, FIRESPAWN and IXXI. After a recent line-up changes, the final poster now has WITCHERY and EREB ALTOR, replacing CARACH ANGREN.

It’s still not too late to get your ticket for this crazy metal sailing on board of the majestic ship “Galaxy” from Stockholm, Sweden to Turku (Abo), Finland by the official web site of the hosts Tallink Silja.
