A few blog notices:
I had a great time at the Dames of Darkness festival this past weekend. We will posting our review of both days of the fest on the Muses of Metal site soon (I will post a link here when it goes up). We also had an interview with Morten Veland of Sirenia, so keep an eye out for that as well. And of course it was really awesome to meet people who are fans of the blog!
Those of you who also follow me on Twitter/Tumblr will know that I am trying to help raise money for my friend Lori, who needs to raise £70,000 for a cancer treatment that might be able to save her life. If you are interested in helping out (every £1 helps!) then the fundraiser page is here.
