What an incredible evening this has been in Trbovlje!!! Acoustic gig that we will remember for a long long time. It can be easily rated right up there in our Top 10 if not even Top 5 concerts of our career. Delavski dom in Trbvolje is a magnificent theatre and a concert venue with a rich history, big stage and is also great from acoustic point of view. It was a real honor to be hosted here for this one night. Everything was just the way we could only hope for … Exquisite dinner, flawless technical performance and a packed venue. We haven't enjoyed being on stage like this for quite some time… A total control over the performance, great sound and phenomenal crowd! Awesome! We hope we get to come here soon!
More great news for our friends from Poland!
Angel Diabolo, Baroko, Napalm 3 and Vojna Idej will be available in stores in Poland as of April 4th! This is the last chance to get these singles as the stock is almost out.
This Saturday was reserved for Ribnica. Due to the last series of earthquakes we decide that "Let it shake! Let it shake!" might not be quite the right lingo for this evening, but T.H.O.R. Stayed on the playlist all the same. Gallop Pub was all set when we arrived so we got right down to business. After we finished the sound check the organizer (obviously conspiring with the local restaurant) decided that he'll kill us off with food. As soon as we calculated all the bits of the situation we agreed that we hit the stage with a 30 minute delay. And even this was cutting it close. And the it began. The tempo was rising, the audience went wilder and wilder and if the local DJ wouldn't have such itchy fingers and such an anxious mouse, we'd surely play one if not two more songs. And even though it was raining outside, inside the sun was shining in all its glory. Afterwards we hung out with with some friends in the backstage, the slowly loaded ourselves onto a bus and headed back home to Ljubljana! Ribnica, thank you for a truly exceptional evening!
Because we had to maneuver our tour bus we managed to completely close off one of the main streets in Lublin - during rush hour. Then an off-roader had to drive our trailer to the club and then we finally managed to get off the bus and do the load-in. Great club, big stage, nice locals. Graffiti Klub. The last evening on this mini tour. During “Novi Svet” we receive the news that our Darian became a father. His newborn daughter, Rea, instantly became the focus and the star of the rest of the evening (and thenight). Congratulations! As it should be done we said our farewells to the closest of our Polish friends who spoiled us rotten every evening with their devotion and love. Grateful for the most honest moments of joy! POLAND, WE’LL MEET AGAIN!
The fortress and a club Forty Kleparz … is a very impressive building. It was as if were some modern age troubadours playing in an medieval castle. It had the smallest stage ever but with a few creative twists we managed to pack ourselves onto it. Our smart-phones solved a reverb issue the mix table had … in short – it was a MacGyver kinda evening. But the gig was beyond wild! And it was Sunday night just to top it off… Maybe it was we just because couldn’t leave the stage that we played a few additional numbers on top of our playlist. What an amazing gratitude and devotion of the fans … it took us on a mental trip back to the times before Rh-. It was hard to say goodbye and we promise that we will be back!
Saturday night was reserved for Warsaw and Progresja Music Zone. After celebrating Tomi’s birthday we were all a bit lazy and slow, we must admit. Luckily the backstage was in 3rd floor so at least this little climb made our blood flow. We had some time for a walk but somehow we didn’t manage to get too far. More or less we popped out to the nearest superstore for some bread and that was pretty much it. But do not be mistaken; the night has its own power and the gig was phenomenal. Loud and full of energy. The fans really connected with us and we could play and play. We met with some familiar face after the gig and made some new friends as well. It was nice to chat with a few Slovenes who live and work in Warsaw and came to our gig to see us. At the end we got some “potica” and warm, hand knitted scarves, so we wouldn’t be too cold in Krakow.
If you want to get from Ljubljana to Poland you must first cross the Slovenian-Austrainborder. Which is not always (obviously) that simple. The Karavanke tunnel got shot down for good six hours right in front of our noses (we went through Karavanke Tunnel because we had to pick up another driver in Germany on our way to Poland). So we had to hit the country roads, cross Italy and had a unique chance to get our 4 meters high bus through a 3,8 meter tunnel along the way. Without a single scratch.
We came to Glogow a good hours late and sweated our way through sound check, which wasn’t all that traumatic because the club is pretty good from the acoustics point of view. The weather was took a second place on the importance scale since it was Tomi’s birthday. The surprise that the band and the Polish fans prepared for him during the encore is virtually indescribable and we can only hope that a video will surface somewhere on YouTube. The crowd got warmed up by a metalband Impala and their fans in Amon Amarth T-shirts stayed even through our show. Thank you, our dear fans, for a greatly executed birthday evening! The cake was incredible! And we’ll drink the personalized beer all too soon!
Sobotni večer je bil rezerviran za Varšavo v klubu Progresja Music Zone. Po praznovanju Tomijevega rojstnega dneva smo bili čez dan, priznam, malce bolj lenobni in počasni. K sreči je bilo zaodrje v tretjem nadstropju, tako da nam je vsaj ta mali vzpon poganjal kri po žilah. Imeli smo nekaj časa na voljo tudi za sprehod, ampak nismo šli ravno daleč.Bolj kot ne po svež kruh v bližnji supermarket in to je bilo to. Da ne bo pomote, noč ima svojo moč in nastop je bil enkraten. Glasen in poln energije. Feni so bli povezani z nami in lahko bi igrali še in še. Po koncu smo se srečali z nekaterimi znanimi obrazi in spoznali nekaj novih prijateljev. Lepo je bilo pokramljati tudi s nekaj Slovenci, ki živijo in delajo v Varšavi in so nas prišli ta večer pogledati. Na koncu smo dobili v dar potico in tople šale, da v Krakovu ne bo mraz.
