Pre-release show in Osnabrück

Ballroom Osnabrück today. This place is just recently opened, and that showed: upon arrival, we noticed that the dressing rooms and shower room wasn’t built yet! A couple of workers spent the day finishing the interior of the rooms during the day, but despite several promises the shower never got any hot water.

Nevertheless, it was a most enjoyable day, spent wondering about in the sunlight and purchasing super-sized vodka bottles.

Giant bottles of booze!

The gig tonight was just as electrifying as last night, and I consumed the entire bottle of Bailey’s Hazelnut during the post-gig autograph session. The first 80% was highly enjoyable, then it almost became too much sugar even for me. But not quite, apparently, as I followed up with a bottle of white wine and Sprite. There audience was very strange, as there was almost no noise in between songs. It reminded me of the Japanese fans, where you can hear a pin drop during the song-pauses. Weird. But they seemed to enjoy themselves anyway.

I’ve seen many, many HammerFall tattoos over the years, but this one is one of my favourites:

Steel Meets Steel - in ink!

    But even the fans right into the song breaks was a bit quiet but we enjoyed the evening very much.
