Winterfylleth tour diary part II: Hammerfest V
We set of from Manchester in high spirits thinking that it wouldn’t take us ages to get to the festival site, we were wrong, it took ages and was long and winding ride. Our spirits were dampened until we turned the corner of a country road and all of a sudden… MOUNTAINS!! Snow covered vast, expanding mountains that totally inspired a lift in our spirits. Such a beautiful landscape in Wales, you almost forget that when you are driving about sometimes.
After our meal of “Fish or Quiche” we did some interviews with Manchester Rocks (see below) and a few others before checking out the static home we were staying in for the evening. On the surface it was all very nice, and had a fridge full of beer, but more on that later!
Having loaded in we took to the stage and were treated to one of the best on-stage sounds we’ve had in a long time. This really filled the room with a massive energy and the show was really vibrant as a result. We had a few small technical issues with the kick drum as it was covered in tape and Simon’s kick pedal kept sticking to it and not coming off. Once the issues were sorted, we blasted through the set and had a good one. Also, it’s always been our ambition to play a show at a Papa John’s Pizza, so we can tick that one off now!
Post set, we enjoyed a few beers with our friends in Triaxis & Ancient Ascendant and went to watch Destruction on the main stage. 3.30am later we were nicely and just about made it back to bed in what can only be described as the most freezing cold caravan of ice I have ever encountered. It was like sleeping outside & I slept fully clothed in my coat and was still like an icicle in the morning. A bracing experience and I think we were all glad of the 7am wake up call for the ferry to Ireland, but… not a bad hangover cure!
