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The stream is now archived and will not be published.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

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.”
