Well, well, well... I just came home from the best concert experience of my life.
First of all just let me say that all extreme metal bands can go hide in a cave... because they have no way to play as heavy as Berge.
His footstomping can move mountains, his voice sounds like a pissed of bear and his guitar playing sounds like an orchestra.

Bjørn Berge's playing is amazingly technical, and he manages to play it so clean and make it sound so big.
He does alot of long solos, and I like how he makes them different every time. I've seen many youtube videos and live dvd's from him, and he makes variations all the time. Long amazing jams with unique licks and incredible technical playing.
He even played a bit from Dueling Banjos in one of his solos! laugh.gif

When Bjørn covers songs he makes the originals sound like bird crap. His setlist contained songs from from Black Sabbath, Metallica, Lightnin' Hopkins, Robert Johnson, including others and his own songs. And of course he ended it all with his amazing version of Ace of Spades with everyone infront of the stage.

He's also a very funny guy. Beetween songs he does these little stand up sessions wich are very funny.
He makes contact with the audience, talks, make jokes etc. I love it.

Don't know what more to say... except that:

I F#@¤%!!! HATE DRUNK PEOPLE!!!

I sat about 4-5 metres from the stage, infront of everyone else, everything is perfect, except the fact that there were tons of drunk chicks behind me, yelling to eachother: "WHAT? I CAN'T HEAR WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. TALK LOUDER"
And one of the women said: "What? Did we pay 180 bucks(NOK ofc) to see this guy??"... pissed me off. Ah well, Bjørn Berge played loud, those drunk @$€#holes didnt bother me that much smile.gif

See if Bjørn Berge plays near you! http://www.bjorn-berge.com/default.asp?pag...p;cmd=resetsort

Thanks for reading my review.

(I'm not very good at writing, so I apologize if this review seems too repetetive and unproffesional)

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

That guy has some serious talent...crazy voice and playing and he does both at the same time!!! Wish they would let us know about talent like this in the states...they mainly just promote mainstream here! Guess you just have to know where to look.
