We’re Gonna Go to China!

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? 🙂

Movie of the Month: Troll 2

Oh boy, Troll 2 is an interesting one in a way. It must have been one of the very worst movies I’ve ever seen. It’s supposed to be a horror movie, and in a way it is.. Well, horrible.

1. There are no trolls in the movie. There are goblins but no trolls. And… The goblins are vegetarians but they still eat people.
2. This is actually not a sequel to the original Troll. The film was originally supposed to be titled “Goblins” but it was retitled as “the distributors were skeptical about the film’s ability to succeed”.
3. The dialogue is bad. Well, the acting is lame, too, so even a better dialogue wouldn’t improve the movie. As Wikipedia says: “The cast had few experienced actors, and was primarily assembled from residents of nearby towns.” and “As [neither the producer or the director] spoke fluent English, the shooting script was written in the same broken pidgin dialect in which they both spoke; the cast […] had difficulty understanding their dialogue
4. The story makes no sense at all. It’s so bad you’ll have to see it yourself.

Dare you take a look at it?

Just take a look at the famous scene from the movie:
