Eternal Tears of Sorrow is having a tour in China. Four gigs. This will be our first tour outside Europe. During the past twelve years, we’ve had live shows in – let me think – twelve countries. Even though touring is always 90% of waiting, it’s always exciting to see new countries and new people.
Twenty years ago (or nineteen years and eleven months ago), when a good friend of mine, Altti Veteläinen and I formed our first metal band, Andromeda, it was far too impossible to imagine we’d be around twenty years later and have live shows as far as in China. No way. We were just so excited to finally get our first demo out. And we got it out, a demo called “The Seven Goddesses of Frost”. Two years later, Andromeda had become Eternal Tears of Sorrow. Five years later, we had our debut album out. Eight years later, we had our first gigs outside Finland.
And still after all these years, it’s kinda funny to get excited about things related to this band.
Ok. Time to get something to eat. There’s going to be more interesting music-related news later this year, and I hope some of them will be about some interesting bands and projects.. Perhaps, maybe, could be, might be? 🙂
