So, me and a friend of mine went to this concert, see. We met and hung out with the guys from pirate metal band Alestorm for quite some time, and we also got to hang out with the guys from Faroese folk metal band Tyr. Well, there was another show in Tallahasse the night after next, so we resolved to go, and we did.

It was fantastic. I hung out with the guys from the aforementioned bands the whole night, and I even got to drive two of my personal guitar heros (Heri Joensen and Terji Skibanaes) to Whattaburger. I then got to have a discussion with Heri about Blind Guardian.

It was definitively the most epic thing ever. The only way something could top it would be driving BG around.

They were a bunch of cool guys, too. iIf you've never heard either band, you should check 'em out.

For most of the experience, I was too flabbergasted to think to whip out my phone and start taking pictures.

I got a few, though. One before the show, my friend that went with me with Alestorm (all of them, actually), and a few during Tyr's set came out all right.



From right to left: Ian, Chris, Gazz, my friend, and Dani. Dani went with me and the guys from Tyr.



There's a good one of myself, Dani, Gunnar Thomsen (Tyr's bassist) and my friend Shawn. That one came from Saturday night.

A grand blast was indeed had! What a wild ride that was!

Alestorm is wicked! Being from Canada we get a lot of this music, but it`s never heavy metal!!
