STAGE FIGHT

EDITED BY KEZ WHELAN

NESKAUPSTAÐUR, ICELAND

Terrorizer has made it a yearly habit of visiting the magical setting of mid-July Neskaupstaður for Eistnaflug – Iceland's gathering of metal, rock and alternative weirdos on a remote fjord in the Eastern coast of the country, for four delirious, constant-sunlight filled days. The festival whose name translated means “flying testicles” (seriously) has grown throughout the years, and is now able to boast a sports hall as main venue filled with strong foreign headliners. This year Opeth were marvellous, Immolation were faultless and devastating, Amorphis,Meshuggah and Marduk were their usually captivating selves, and Belphegor and Melechesh did, for better or worse, the exact same thing they’ve been doing for years. All these big headlining shows took place on the big shiny venue, and frankly, we don’t really care. We understand the presence of these bands is obviously celebrated by the local fans, but for us, the real appeal of Eistnaflug is in the Icelandic scene itself, and that’s the reason we insist on going every year. The extent of the quality of the country’s musical underground only really becomes apparent after spending these four days fully exposed to it – and its very soul is mostly centred on the former main venue, the charmingly dark and sweaty Egilsbud.

About Terrorizer Magazine

Devin Townsend: it’s a name synonymous with heavy and extreme metal, and also a name associated with the occasional foray into acoustic and country albums, not to mention albums featuring coffee loving puppets! And of course, who could forget his very own dedication to this here mag he created a few years ago with his mighty ‘Terrorizer’ song – only Onslaught had ever done a homage to a metal mag before this, if memory serves me correctly. There’s something for everyone, which is something rare in many musician’s repertoires. Devin’s enjoyed and created a rather unique musical path and 25 albums in, it’s awesome to see that this month, there are no signs of him letting up. Read all about what he’s been up to over the past few years and how he’s feeling about life in our cover story. Elsewhere this issue is jam packed with a delectable array of quality bands including plenty of UK bands – Akercocke, The Wounded Kings, Slomatics, Coltsblood, and Iron Witch – and plenty of worldwide ones too. Extreme music, no boundaries! See you next month. Darren Sadler
