Another year has gone and it's soon time for 2008 years edition of the ShitTown diy hardcore punk festival.
This is one of the best festivals in Europe and use to attract people from all over the world which makes it one of my favourites of the year.
Just like last year, the festival is taking place in Christiania, Copenhagen at Den Grå Hal (the Grey Hall). Be sure to make it there, or you'll be sorry.
Among the bands that will play the fest you can find Pisschrist, Skitkids, Distress, Sotatila and Warcollapse, so it's gonna be a hell of a festival.
Besides music there will also be a lot of cool and interesting workshops along with the extremely entertaining bike destruction derby Bike Wars.
For more info about the festival, check out their website: www.shit-town.dk

Morne is for me an up until now unknown band. I came across them by accident on MySpce when I browsed through the bulletins and I got stuck on a headline saying something about a new band with a member from Filth of Mankind. Could this be? I had to take a closer look at this and went to their MySpace in search of some more info about the band. As I was waiting for the site to load, the player started to play the song "Machine". I don't know what happened but for a few seconds I couldn't move or think, just being awashed by a gigantic wave of pure and utter darkness. An amazing intro fills the room and spreads an eerie atmosphere that is so thick you can actually almost touch it. All of a sudden I get draged into a whirlwind of riffs that are executed in a perfect manner. It's an explosion of haunting, epic crust. Bands like Amebix and Sacrilege flashes before my eyes hand in hand with Counterblast as the next track starts. After listening to the 4 tracks on their MySpace over and over again I decided I had to let the world know about this band. I still don't know much about this band since they haven't posted any info or anything on their site. But I do know that they will tour the US in September. I really hope they will make it to Europe soon and that they will release the planned split LP with Warprayer. If you want to check them out, and you really should, go visit their MySpace: www.myspace.com/mornecrust and prepare to get blown away.
