   NAGLFAR - INTO ETERNITY
Naglfar © Silkie Gerold N8 - Osnabrück (D)
June 3rd 2004

As I was not familiar with the N8 club, I wasn't sure when the show would start. Unfortunately the website of the club did not have any info about this. Well, at least not for non-registered people. I arrived just in time when the doors opened. It was my first time here and I must say, this club is a small, but nice club. I have to guess on how many people would fit in there, maybe 150 - 200 people, but unfortunately not that many showed up. Maybe around 70 fans found their way to see the shows.

Into Eternity © Silkie Gerold INTO ETERNITY entered the stage at 8.37 p.m. and the club was immediately heated up. They were opening up with "Elysium Dream" of the album "Dead Or Dreaming" followed by the song "Embraced By Desolation" of the new killer album "Buried In Oblivion". Here at latest I noticed that the N8 has no light show going, both bands were covered in red light for the whole shows. Due to the fact that it was a small stage, with this red spotlight, the band being in movement constantly, headbanging, hiding faces behind curtains of hair except for Rob Doherty ;), it was hard to get good photo shots... and of course I had to do some headbanging in between, too. /mp/\.jpgm/ So it was even harder to keep track of good pictures.... LOL
I didn't expect that Into Eternity would be able to play a set as long as the set of Naglfar, so it was a great surprise to see they did. For about an hour (AN HOUR, Tim!! - Cora & Marlies), they played a cool mix of songs from the albums "Dead Or Dreaming" and "Buried In Oblivion". The audience totally enjoyed their show and when they finished the set the crowd intensively shouted for an encore. This was a fantastic score for the band. They returned on stage to thank the fans with a song from the first album "Into Eternity".

Naglfar © Silkie Gerold After a break things were getting ready for NAGLFAR and the band changed something on the setlist on last minute, they entered the stage at 9.56 p.m. when the intro started. First song for the evening was "Black God Aftermath" of the last release "Sheol". One thing I love about Naglfar is that with every show they have a different setlist, so it's worth to see them a few times in a row. Actually this was the first time I have seen them on such a small stage. And no matter what size the stage has, they know how to perform! The evil was rising from stage and snatched every fan's soul. The infinite need of swirling the head, raising the fist and throwing horns, captured all fans in Naglfar’s spell. Jens Rydén as the master of the evil was showing us well how to do it. It worked perfectly until the end of the very last song where he came too close to Marcus E. Norman's guitar and all of the sudden his hair was wrapped around Marcus' guitar neck *ouch*. Well, with all the headbanging I still managed to take shots including some of Into Eternity, as they were watching the show. When the show reached the end, and the band left the stage, it seemed most power of the audience was gone. Unfortunately, they did not shout well enough for an encore, even if they still were waiting and hoping for one. The band did not return, but I'm not sure if Jens was still trying to get his hair off Marcus' guitar neck :p

Naglfar and Into Eternity © Silkie Gerold This was a fantastic evening, and worth every second for being there. Both bands did well and it had an great effect... I still feel like stoned from their music and wish the fans in Italy, Into Eternity’s and Naglfar’s next destination, and the bands a great time. After the show I had the opportunity for a small talk with both bands until they had to leave. It was fun, we had a little photo session and I’d like to thank all for taking time. See you somewhere on the road...
