Some news

Just saying that in the next days you will find me very rarely in the msn. I think if you checked it, last days I was very few, and few time, and impossible in the weekends.
The beginning of the exams won't allow me to stay there for talking, but I will go on putting sometimes new posts here. If you want to tell me something you can leave it here :)

Solo decir que nos próximos dias raramente me encontraredes no msn. Se vos fixastes, nos últimos dias estiven moi pouco, e cando estiven, foi pouco tempo. Ademais, imposible nos fines de semana (pon xa wireless!).
O comenzo dos exames non me permitirá estar ahi para falar, pero seguirei de vez en cando poñendo novos posts neste blog. Se queredes decirme algo, podedes deixalo por aqui :)

I just find this pic right now in my pc. I forgot I had it.
I remember when I was at the Rotting Christ concert, and I was looking Sakis.. and asking myself.. hey.. that guy.. he recalls me to somebody.. yeh! it was me + 15 years more + greek nose :D
What do you think? Am I right? (someone told me it was my imagination :D)

Behemoth and Kataklysm in Vigo, at sala Ah! on 10th February!!! ouhhhh yeh!!
The best polish death metal and the best canadian death metal bands nowadays together.. and here! I can't wait!!

Concerts of the past II - Corvus Corax

It was Wedneday, strange day for one concert. Corvus Corax the german band of medieval folk came to Vigo with almost zero promotion. I knew about the concert just few days before!
Well... so there we arrived, previously convincing some friends that that show would be worth to see :P and the price was really ok (6 €) ...and ...the place was so so small! I couldn't believe that one band of 8 members could fit int that place.
It was said that they were about to cancel the concert due to the small of the scenary.... (I guess they are used to make their show in really big scenaries, even they recorded with a symphonic orchestra in a theater once!)
So there we arrived and the first band we saw was The Moon and the Nightspirit. I really liked the album of that band, even more than Corvus Corax. It's quite relaxing, atmospheric and medieval folk. I remember I played it in the presentation of Estonia when my trip to Turkey, and it was a good choice under my point of view.
So they were 4, I thought maybe they would be more people, but I realized that one kettledrum, one guy that played several wind and percussion instruments, the singer girl who played the violin, male singer who played acoustic guitar were enough (these both singers the ones who appear in the CD, they hired 2 more for playing the rest of instruments).
The concert was ok, the atmosphear of calm and medieval dream melodies was really good, but I missed something more interaction with the public. They were too static all the time, and at the end it was becoming a bit boring.
It happened something strange this time, I liked The Moon and the Nightspirit when I am at home listening to Rëgo Rejtem more than in live. And totally the opposite with Corvus Corax. At home one full album is heavy for me, but in live it was really funny and light.



Beer break after The Moon and the Nightspirit

So, they came, no micros, no electronic stuff at all, only drums, kettledrums (sorry if I dont know the names in english of some instruments), and several medieval-minstrel instruments, being the most important one the bagpipe.
And it was so great show, they made it so funny! at the beginning the few people, maybe 60 or 70 people were just watching (after the appereance of The Moon and the Nightspirit, maybe someone already almost sleeping and dreaming with some fairytales :)) but after, Corvus Corax encourage people to participate and sing and sing and sing. These germans did the best, I am sure, being so so close ones from others and without any micro, and in one lost place of Spain where only few ones were attending to their concert (in the middle of the week sure it didn't help), and most of them sure they didn't know too much about the band before...
It was a good show and enough long. If they were other band, looking few people and a small place, maybe they would end the show sooner... (uh? Catamenia??)
Corvus Corax 10/10
Proffessionals and funny show!







One of them jumped into the public in the show, I didn't realize I had the zoom at maximum, so this pic seems to be really close. I like the face of the girl like saying "oh my god! he is here!!" :D


Tall guys!!!

Concerts of the past (part I - Halloween)

In Halloween I went to one concert here in Vigo. They were playing Fallen Sentinel, the best band nowadays in Galicia, and one of the most outstanding in the last years in Spain, under my point of view (always talking about Underground), and Skydancer, another band from Vigo.
When I came there I found lots of children dressed in Gothic - Terror style, suitable for Halloween. Moreover the ticket would be cheaper if you were dressed... I just forgot my paints in the face and my skirt at home :D
So all those children-teenagers (12-15 years old) were the main supporters of the first band, Skydancer. I had heard about that band, but i didnt expect so many young fans :S
So my curiosity for their show was growing.. what kind of style can attract young fans in Spain? and maybe gothic young fans... still unbeliveable for me at that time... Spain? child metal fans? hm this is not Finland...
The name of the band was also interesting.. the same name as one of the old albums of Dark Tranquillity.. hmm good smell..
Then they started..
Ok... then I understood why they had so many young fans.. they were doing like the typical spanish rock (Extremoduro, Sober, and other... bands.. :S) but with a touch of more heavy metal. The music itself.. wasn't bad.. but I didnt like the singer. It reminded me a lot to all those bands, his voice was like a junkie with a bad sleep, like that band so known few years ago (hopefully only in Spain) called Extremoduro. Sorry for the spanish people who like that band... but I just hate them XDDD
Between... why do spanish bands choose a english name if they sign in spanish??
So, Skydancer did a not bad concert, their young fans enjoyed quite a lot. I just stayed there waiting for the next ones.
Fallen Sentinel came few moments after and the atmosphere changed considerabily. The children left (maybe too much noise? maybe too technical music? maybe not typical spanish and original enough?) and they did maybe one of the best concerts I have seen of them. Palomo (singer/bassist) told "the words" after a beautiful and atmospheric intro... "Here comes the darkness" and the assault of progressive melodic gothic black metal started with one of the new songs of their next (cuando viene??)album. I think those new songs sound even better than the previous one "Eternity and Before".
I enjoyed the concert as one of those children with Skydancer :D
I am sorry that I didnt upload the videos I recorded, they are too dark.
Great Halloween evening :)

Life updatings

Well, I have been doing posts for some time but I realized I didn't talk too much about what I was doing recently. Ok, something fast :)
Since my coming back to university I logged into the help for new Erasmus. Before I was the one helped, and now I wished to be the one who helps.... now that I know the problems of being in a foreign country and without knowing the language. Thanks to in Estonia people know how to speak english really well I didn't have so much communication problems there, but here in Spain the level is quite low :( , so I would tell people who are wishing to come for Erasmus to Spain.. try to learn at least a little bit before... it will help a lot :(
So at the beginning of september I was told I had to pick up one polish girl (from Wroclaw). Afterwards I helped her with finding flat... and few more..
Activities here are almost not existent, my labour was finished with this. No international dinners, no trips of several days with everyone as in Tallinn. I am quite dissappointed with the organisation of the Universidade de Vigo for Erasmus. Come on! Estonia is so small comparing to Spain and even smaller than Galicia and they have such a great organisation and great people there attending us! Always ready for making some party, trip, visit, any kind of activity...
Here I don't know even other volunteers, only through some party that "my polish girl" :P hehe Karolina and her friends are doing. I just know her, her flatmates and few other internationals. Vigo's university still has to learn a lot from other universities like those in Tallinn (TTU or Tallinn University).
Well anyway, I have to say that is really nice and interesting to meet again international people and even start to talk in english again (yeh Julia! it's like lots of good memories are somehow coming back...).

Karolina and me

Well, and all this time what I have been doing?... easy.. school-home, home-school, weekend going out... maybe not... maybe yes... some concert that I will put nextly... and .. nothing more!
I will have some exams in December, so I guess this is the right time to start seriously with studying...
One more thing, I wish all the luck to Julia (thanks for the comment in the post of my hometown :P), because she will come to study to Marbella, at the south of Spain in few time. If you have some free time, don't hesitate in visiting me.. if not.. maybe I encourage to visit you, always that you have some free time with your new job. All the best ;)

Now I just put some pics of some times I went out these previous days


In a very good company :P

Cristian and me... not drunk! well.. just a bit :D

Again in a really good company :D








Oh... how I like to appear like the bad guy in the photos! hahahah
See you nextly.

Arch Enemy / Behemoth new videos

Arch Enemy - Revolution Begins (2007)

Since the day that you were born the wheels are in motion
Turning even faster – Play your part in the big machine
The stage is set, the road is chosen
Your fate preordained
We are watching you – every step of the way

Never too late to stand your ground – Revolution begins
In you – In me – Revolution!

Once lost – lost in their game
Mental chains breaking now
Set yourself free
Who are they to tell you what to do?
The stage is not set, the road is not chosen
You fate not preordained
They are losing control – every step of the way

This is revolution!

Behemoth - Prometherion (2007)


Hark!
The all prophetic incantation
I was here before the beginning came
And I am the one to come after all myths and gods
Remain I shall beyond the end ov days

I pity Thee not oh self despising slave
Thy self contempt filled with disgust
Cast aside Thy scorn ov the earth
Until I lay my wrath upon the Thee I shall...

Eat the weak!
Fuck the flesh!
Slit the throat!
Consume the dead!

Drowned in empty black
Attempt to embrace my universe
I learnt how to crawl through knives and thorns
Drowned in alienation
I drag myself through the mud
Hatred injected, abhorrence accepted
When mankind fall prey
I shall arise!

And Great Dragon from my mouth emerged
And all the treasures ov this world belong to me
In the sweetest inorganic embrace ov my devotee
I pledge my dagger unto Thee

Blessed with the Promethean rain
Tranquility I may find in bottomless pits
I shall carry this darkness on my back
'Till the day all the suns eclipse I shall...

Eat the weak!
Fuck the flesh!
Slit the throat!
Consume the dead!

Alfoz

Alfoz is my little dear hometown.
I decided to make a post of my little town, cause I remember once in Tallinn, one friend told me... "oh! from Spain! so you must live in somekind of desert, always sunny and 40 degrees!"
Well, after this I couldn't avoid a little smile... my place is in the northest part of Spain, and it's known the rain in Galicia all around Spain.
Though this year is quite strange, since september in Vigo, the south of Galicia, and the city where I study, it didn't rain since I am here in September!!
And even now, in november the sun is always there and no clouds at all!
But it's usual that in Vigo is hotter weather than in my hometown. Up there is always cloudy :D
The distance between Vigo and my place is around 300 km. so I cant go so often as I would like..

I won't show pics from Vigo, it's a not very nice city, cars and cars and buildings... and traffic jams... It has a harbour, but too industrial for me, and it has a beach.. but for going there you have to cross all the city and go almost at the end of the place... and in summer is too stressfull with too warm weather and so many people going there...
I can reach the beach in my hometown faster than in Vigo, and the beaches are more beautiful :P hehe
The following pictures are taken in summer time.

This is my house in Alfoz. If you click over it, you can my particular Cerberos that keeps the door. Nobody can come in without its barks (an teeth :P)

We live in a valley, so all around us are mountains (bigger than the estonian ones :P hahah)
And in the middle of the valley we have a medieval castle, you can see it if you saw the pics of the medieval party in my place. In the next pic you can see better the sight of the mountains around us.

This beautiful (:P) pic is taken from the main door of my house. I like this picture and mostly the colour of the clouds.

We have another reeeeeeally old house. Nobody lives there now, it's a total ruin, I moved from here when I was 1 or 2 years old, so I cannot remember any time there, but somehow it has its own beauty.


This is a very traditional old building in Galicia, almost every old house has one of this near. This pics are taken from inside my old house. It was used for keeping cereals.

Also, a lot of old houses have its own.. I dont know how to call it in english.. "family crest"(?). It is like the emblem of the family who was living there in the house. The pic on the left is my emblem, but with years it is now almost rubbed out or erased (I dont know how to say hahah).
So on the right I put another pic of one house near of mine that this emblem is clearer than mine.

Sight from the old house.. quite scary hm? hehe
I bet to someone to pass there one night :P



And now, more pics of my place and green landscapes. Forget about deserts in the north of Spain hehe. In fact, my place is related with Celts and their mythology. And some of our landscapes in Galicia are quite similar to countries like Ireland, mostly. I would say, much more similar to Ireland than the south of Spain. If you see the movie "The sea inside" you can see some more landscapes in Galicia. It's a not so unknown film, the director is Alejandro Amenábar (The Others) and it was filmed in Galicia.



I like this road :)


This is the sight of my room:

And this is my Cerberos. She likes coffeeeeee and she will do everything to get it!
So..."move away your dirty hands from my coffee... it's an advice" :D
By the way.. her name is Muna... I know estonian people who read this can laugh a bit with that name.. hehe.. in fact.. this is the first word I learnt in estonian because of my dog...
Well ... Muna means in estonian .. "egg" hehe
But we put the name because it was the name of an ancient egyptian princess! :)


This is one of the things that I like more... in the north of Galicia, you can see mountain and the sea at the same time...

When I was in Tallinn and I talked with my friends in Spain, they usually asked me about the weather.. and I use to ask them too... this pic is from January, if I recall it well. If you click over it and make it bigger you can see some few snow over the mountains, but it's very strange that it comes to the valley. The house at the right is mine :)



I hope you like it.
See you in another post!
