JIMI MASTERBO AND METHANE FEATURED IN MUSIC HISTORY BOOK

IMG_5327

Our small rural region in Sweden is well known for its music scene and the bands that it has fathered. Hypocrisy, Dark Funeral, Pain and Sabaton are only a few of the well known bands who were procreated in the midst of the snow driven forests and dairy farms. Our city of Borlänge ,about 40,000 people strong, has been a large contributor to that music scene and that music scene is a large part of Borlänge’s identity. On April 7, 2018  a book “Dancing the Whole Way Home ” was released culminating 70 years of music in our town.

METHANE is very proud to be a small part, to even be mentioned among the thousands of musicians who have been spawned here Dalarna County. Jimi Masterbo (Methane guitarist) has been a staple in the music scene here for a long while and his formeer metal band Hell Patrol ,along with Christopher  Säterdal and Jonas Arnberg of  Viking folk metal band Fimbultyr and Stephan Pizza Eriksson who later would go on to play bass in Volturyon and Civil War, has a full 2 page feature in the Swedish language Publication.

TOUR UPDATE SIGNED IN BLOOD ESTONIA, BACKSTAGE PASS, PHOTOS AND STORY.

February 21, 2018 we gave us off to Estonia from our rural town in the heart of Sweden. The weather was a typical mid-winter Scandinavian bone chilling cold. We packed up our “Tour Bus” a Renault station wagon and drove off twords Stockholm, where we would catch the ferry to Estonia. See all tourdates here

When we came to the port in Stockholm, we drove the Methane-mobile (which would become our cramped halfway house on wheels) on to the ship and found our room. The Baltic Sea was cold and full of ice that previous ships have broken, and like many times before we found ourselves on the 24 hour party boat on our way to metal clubs in a new country.

After a little celebrating on the boat we arrived in Tallinn around 10 AM,  loaded our tired asses in to the car and drove off to meet up with our friends StoneSoul. We had played with StoneSoul before in Finland last year and have kept contact with DC and the guys ever since.

DC HARI (StoneSoul with Tim and Jimi (Methane) 

Then off to the first gig : Tartu, Estonia @ Underground. Where we would later meet up with our tour mates in INTACT. Undergound is a small basement club with a real “underground” feeling, setting the stage for a great 3 day tour.

Day 2: Valga, Estonia @ Rockiklubi. We woke up feeling like we deserved for partying with the bands and our new friends we met in Tartu, and made our way to Valga. Valga is a city divided by the borders of Estonia and Latvia. Rockiklubi had a feeling of being a squat, it was BYOB and spray paint on the walls. But an awesome crowd made for an awesome gig.

Day 3: Tallinn, Estonia @ Club Rockstar’s. Our last night was in INTACT’s home town and capitol of Estonia. THe 24th of February, the night we played, was also Estonia’s 100 year celebration. The city was in party mode. Rockstar’s looks and feels like a medievil dungeon which is fitting for the world’s most preserved medievil city Tallinn, built by the Tuetonic Knights and listed on UNESCO World Heritage preservation list.

Tallin was not good by just “see you again soon”. This March Intact will be here in Sweden playing a gig in Ludvika and and a show with METHANE in Mora at Lilla Helfvetet on 24 March. Its been a year since we played in Mora and can’t wait to come up again. We hope to see everyone come out supporting metal music and discover Intact’s heavy grooves, unique sound and great stage show, Presented by KILLAHEAD. INTACT on Facebook
