"Suomi Finland Perkele! After a rather quiet and almost pleasant ferry ride from Sweden over to Finland we are now approaching our last few shows on the European leg of the Darkness Reborn Tour, also appropriately dubbed Darkest Reborn Ever after the Prague incident.
However, let's not go into details! Feels pretty weird that this first part of the tour has almost come to an end, it's been great fun and we have had some really awesome shows and the crowds have been nothing but amazing!
Tonight's sold out show here in Tampere was another proof of that with 1500 devoted fans raging, simply incredible! Playing Finland once again reminds us of why we always keep coming back and why we share a special bond since the very first time we played here - thank you!
Touring with the ENSLAVED and SAHG guys has been a real pleasure and it makes us proud and content to be around such professional musicians and share the experience but also the fact that both bands kick serious ass every night!
The hot sauce crew is still on the look for the most violent mix of peppers they can find but so far we have all survived the Dragonfire, Black Widow and The Painmaker with a hint of grace - albeit with the most teary eyes, burning lips and sore behinds the following day. We expect they will turn it up a few notches once we hit North American soil, it's gonna be frightening to be part of and witness how this will end. We can't wait for the madness to begin in November, see you soon!"
