A lecture via information about a live show and merchandise reservation

Helsinki (/ˈhɛlsɪŋki, hɛlˈsɪŋki/: The capital and most populous city of Finland. Centered around the famous Piritori.

Death: The permanent cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism. The thing we all eagerly wait for.

Fest: Danish/German/Norwegian/Swedish for party. Short for the English word “infestation”.

Reserve: To arrange for something to be kept for you, for example, a seat on an aircraft or a table at a restaurant. Or a shirt. Or a vinyl album. Or your mother.

Merchandise: Goods that are offered for sale, especially in a store. This time in the context of the greatest web store on Earth.

Demilich will have a 60 minute’ish set on late Saturday night at Helsinki Death Fest, with a surprise guest taking part in one song! More about that around 60 seconds before the song starts!

There will also be the usual Demilich merchandise available for sale from Friday on, but if you want to make sure you’ll get what you want, you can head at Demilich Shop, add the things you want into the shopping cart, and choose “Local pickup in Helsinki (FI), August 23/24, 2019”. We will then use the lower festival pricing – for even the stuff that we won’t sell there – and if you paid for it when checking out, we will refund the difference. We’ll also contact you and arrange a meeting with Antti at the festival site. Do this before Thursday, 4 PM GMT! That’s 19.00 Helsinki time, you less advanced time zone hobbyists.

And don’t worry, the fest will sell our merch commission free, so the hard working people there won’t be losing a dime. They will actually be able to spend the extra time for sipping alcoholic beverages and planning on world famous heists.

An update on everything important in your life here

An update on everything important in your life here

The video clip we posted some days ago told you a beautiful story about altruistic devotion and overflowing love on a day of July. We streamed live the whole Demilich show from Symbolic Open Air, plus a total of 35 minutes of backstage action before and after it, for our fantastic mailing list members only!

We saw a glimpse of glamor (a tent and multiple benches), lots of grass (in the ground, you wise-ass), huge (mostly physically) celebrities, weirdos (yours truly), failures in guitar pedal settings (HM-2 with a knob not turned to maximum, intentionally. WTF???), foamy beer, shaky camera action, etc.

The stream is now archived and will not be published. If you want to be part of experiments like this, join the list at demili.ch/beer4all !

Thanks to Martin and the awesome Symbolic crew for the great night!

And just to make you even more jealous, we once gave free Hellfest shirts (the original, unmodified ones) to all our Telegram subscribers! We might be pulling similar things there, too. Probably not if we get more than five members in it, though.

We also have a YouTube channel which doesn’t have much there, yet, but we’re looking forward to adding something soon. If we get 973 subscribers more (a bow to those 27 who have already subscribed) we will be able to stream easier with my mobile phone, which has even more appalling audio quality than the laptop microphone we used!

In other news, there is new merchandise at Demilich Shop. Our gigantic European summer tour T-shirt (not in gigantic sizes) is now available online, and we also brought you the blue logo shirt. We have also restocked lots of the old designs! And the site works much, much quicker now. Much.

Oh, and Helsinki Death Fest is almost here! More about that tomorrow.

Next up: The wrap-up of Demilich’s year 2018½, part 2/3

Yours,

Antti Boman, Semilich

(Hey, Antti, too much info in one post. This is what happens when you don’t post often. People don’t read just these novels of yours. It’s like your emails with the booking agency, man.)

The wrap-up of Demilich's year 2018½, part 1/3

Summer – Hellfest & Chaos Descends

I had wanted to play at Hellfest for so many years, and got to do it on July 2018. A massive festival with lots of people watching every show, even if they didn’t know your music before. Many of them seemed to have heard us, though! Great setting, facilities, and the best catering I’ve ever got to witness! I loved every minute of the weekend, even though I did it completely sober, and having fun while sober is just pretending. Hmmm. I’m baffled now. Did I just pretend? Anyway, thanks to Hellfest for the invitation and Fred & Lorene of Garmonbozia for making it happen!

Cons: Lots of unsold special shirts (available as tank tops here)

Pros: Everything else, including not having a hangover afterwards

In July, we headed to a different kind of setting at Chaos Descends in Germany. A beautiful valley with smaller stages. Not as glamorous as Hellfest, but even more fun! I sipped in my Hellfest share of alcohol here, fortunately mostly after the show. Thank you very much Franz and Chaos Descends organization, and all the people that had to bear my blabbing!

Cons: Drinking too much and being an idiot from the end of the show to getting back home. 20 hours too late.

Pros: A good story for the guys to remind me of regularly. Makes me remember my new mantra. “Control.”

The dopest mailing list in the hood

The dopest mailing list in the hood

You may think I’m crazy, but believe me, it’s all real. The wormhole I went through some time ago told me that you should really really really wanna zig-a-zig-ah! Uh, I mean, you should really really really join our new mailing list. That’s the place where we inform people first on not only new merchandise, but also competitions, freebies, rarities, and everything that is already gone when you spot it here in Instagram!

We are almost ready to send the first email, and that will include some rarities and other goodies in it. So, head at https://demili.ch/beer4all and add your email address there. We don’t spam a lot, everything we send is relevant to your life. Told the wormhole. Love you, you puffy little being! No, not you! I meant the wormhole! Argh!!!

P.S.: Did you know that classic Spice Girls’ line actually refers to “shit and cigars”?

Demilich Deathfest XVIII

Demilich Deathfest XVIII

We played the first time in Maryland Deathfest (MDF) in 2006. After nine years of getting closer to death, we did it again in 2015. And now, after mere five years, we’ll be back there in 2020!

With my careful calculations and usage of AI, I came to the conclusion that we’ll play there the next time in 2021, then have a set for each day of the festival in 2022, and after that, the whole happening will be renamed DDF. In 2024, Baltimore MD will be known as Demilich DH, and in 2025 we’ll be The President of The United States of Demilich. And that’s just a start. Don’t worry, though, we will be gentle owners of the world, albeit a bit merciless.

The Reykjavíkssons

The Reykjavíkssons

I, Antti Gunnarsson, and the rest of Demilich are so glad to finally play in Iceland tonight! The organizer almost made a horrible mistake by booking us a flat in the same block where the local BrewDog bar resides, but fortunately for everyone, we won’t have time to get wasted today. We’ll most probably be hanging at the bar on Saturday, wandering drunk, cold and aimless on Vatnajökull on Sunday, and floating dead in Silfra fissure on Monday. BrewDog, you may use our bodies for bottle wrappings of a very limited End of History edition.

Before that, tough, lots of cool Demilich merchandise, including T-shirts, long-sleeves, patches, vinyls and CDs, will be present for your shopping obsession tonight, possibly even tomorrow. After that, there may not be time or reality anymore. I heard it from a very confidential source inside my head.

Time-space-timing in-on-to Portugal

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.
