Time-space-timing in-on-to Portugal

For you, it’s been a long, long time since I posted the last time. For me, it was a mere blink of an eye. Wormholes are cool. I will later tell about all of the peculiar things that happened to me in that microsecond. Now, though, we’re ready to start Aki’s Volvo’s engine and use more traditional ways of time-space travel to get to Portugal for a great festival at Barroselas, near Porto!

We’ll bring in a mind-blowjobing 45 minute set of music, and some great shirts in plentiful colors, vinyls in some colors, and CDs + patches in what was left from the palette. Black, white and silver, which is not a color. But let’s not get into that conversation.

We’ll be personally selling our shit before the show and 30 minutes after it, for an hour or two. Don’t do a time warp during the critical minutes, as you’ll miss the possibility to get “The Coolest Merchandise On Earth 2019” competition winning coolest merchandise on Earth, and meet and talk with us! You can also just buy stuff and ask us not to converse.

So, see you tomorrow! Thanks to the SWR graphics artist (André Coelho?) and ESO Supernova for letting me use their work for the beautiful montage shown here. No permissions asked, but the wormhole told me it’s A-okay to do it.

Growl Grammys

Femmagaala, the “shadow Grammy Awards Ceremony” of Finland, has always had their peculiar categories that change yearly. This year’s categories consist of such gems as “skinny jeans you don’t fit in anymore -femma”, “button pressing -femma” (for DJ’s), and so on. Demilich has been nominated in the “growl femma” category along with some more current artists of the genre.

If you cannot get into the mainstream awards, wait for decades for the alternative ones to come up with a category that suits you! Here I am, fingers crossed!

Helsinki show tomorrow! Shopaholics beware!

“What is this bloody mess I’m looking at?” It’s the professionally designed merchandise advertisement for the Demilich and Winterwolf gig tomorrow (Saturday) in Helsinki! Behold it in awe, or die in excruciating pain!

Demilich will be – personally – selling shirts (even in colors that have no names, yet), vinyls, patches, pins, vinyls, cassettes and vinyls at the venue.

The rarities we blabbed about earlier include Musick Cadas Nespithe and TFIToD T-shirts and long-sleeves, “A Rare Minion” leftover T-shirts and girlies, Nespithe gold LPs (sold out elsewhere), numbered Vanishing test press 2LP’s with Antti’s signature, and much, much more! Ok, not much more, but those. We may have beanies and pins, though. Currently rare, as nobody has them.

Winterwolf will be selling, also personally, new Brujo and Natas shirts along with “Cycle of the Werewolf” CDs. The advertising agency forgot to add the CD cover in the image you’re drooling on now, even though I called them a dozen times about it. Unreliable and expensive bastards.

Come to shop like crazy, or die. In excruciating pain. Which will happen to all of us, anyway. Oh, and if you buy a ticket to the fair, you’ll get to see the two bands play in the background. Just perfect music for shopping, and jogging! If you like that shit.

The New Black

Even though there are still tickets left for this Saturday’s Demilich+Winterwolf gig in Helsinki, I suggest you to get yours now before it’s too late!

We will have an unseen-before selection of both Demilich and Winterwolf merchandise on the gig (including Demilich rarities), so if you hate the bands, you can just come shopping there! For stuff by the bands you hate. Yes. Showing the hate by wearing what you hate is the new black, you know.

Svart Death Night 6: The Battle Of Incomprehensible Logos

Hey, Helsinki. Kuopio will attack you in less than a month.

Demilich and Winterwolf have formed an axis of evil, and the generals have decided to invade The Babylon Protected By The Mighty Kehä III on Saturday, December 15, 2018.

Demilich will use the old and trusty machinery from 1990 to 2006, whereas Winterwolf’s weaponry is from 2009 and, believe it or not, from the future, 2019! Thanks, Skynet!

The invasion will start at Kuudes Linja, right when everybody has started sipping beer and watching nature documentary on the TV. That is 19:00 (7PM).

You would have never known what hit you unless we hadn’t blabbed about it here.

Saturday, 2018-12-15 (15 December 2018) 19:00-22:00 (7 PM – 10 PM)
Kuudes Linja, Hämeentie 13, 00530 Helsinki, Finland
Tickets: 12,50 € / 13,00 € ; (from 2018-11-26 on)

101 songs of Finnish rock greatness, including Demilich [CTA]

Interesting. [CTA] The national TV and radio media, Yle, is running a poll on the greatest Finnish rock songs. No, I know that’s not that interesting, but please be patient while I build the story here.

The list has been curated by journalists, [CTA] and they have clearly let some (positively) wacky person to ruin the list with death and black metal [CTA]. And that dude(ss) also chose [CTA] Demilich’s When the Sun Drank the Weight of Water to represent one of those 101 songs of Finnish greatness. [CTA]

So, this is definitely not a call-to-action (CTA), but if you want to make a statement, [CTA] head at the link below and give [CTA] your vote (for [CTA] Demilich) there [CTA]! You may include a song only once, and please do fill the other four fields with some nasty music by other cool bands on the list. Otherwise your vote won’t count, and we won’t win. And that’d be sad. And we have so much sadness in this world already. And that’s thanks to voting, too. So, vote, if you want to support sadness, and joy as well.

Check the list and click the link below the image:

The results will be revealed in Radio YleX on Thursday, November 22. The whole list, independent of the votes, will be ran through on the Finnish independence day in radio and!

Oh, and hopefully you’ve managed to live your lives fully without hearing much from us lately. I’ve been worrying about you all, a lot, all the time. More (and more relevant) updates coming soon.

Antti Boman, the CMO of The Silent Retreat Department of Demilich, Inc.

“If those funnily colored shirts sell out, I will eat a hatful of shit!”

“If those funnily colored shirts sell out, I will eat a hatful of shit!” said Jarkko two weeks ago. We found the hat, time to fill it up.

Special props to Lauri, the live drummer, for the comment “Was your intention to make sure the shirts won’t sell?” I have a hat for you, too, my dear friend.

The Demilich part of the tour will end tonight in Berlin! Good times, sad times.
