'Seeing Repulsion Soundcheck Was a Treat For Sure!' My 2011 With Henrik Palme from In Solitude

Its been a busy year for the Satanically-minded Swedes... Here's a round up of what's been going on.

Hello there - nice of you to join us. 2011 has been an excellent year for music. What was the best album you bought this year?
Reveal - Nocturne of Eyes and Teeth, Invidious - In death, The Skull Defekts - Peer Amid and Mattias Alkberg - Anarkist

That's four. What about the best album you’ve heard this year but never got round to buying?

None I think. I bought em' all!
How about the worst Album you bought this year?

I bought this collection of live and demo-stuff with The Stimulators (Harley Flanagan's band before Cro-Mags) and I returned it the same day I bought it.
You toured a fair bit this year. Who were the best Band you saw live in 2011?
Swans (Stockholm), Voivod (Roadburn), The Melvins (Hellfest & Stockholm), Mortuary Drape (somewhere in Germany), Saint Vitus (Hole In The Sky) and Pentagram (Arena, Austria). And seeing Repulsion soundcheck in Los Angeles was a treat for sure.

That's six. We're certsinly getting value for money here! Most exciting event of the year?
Touring the US with Down and record shopping at Amoeba Records in San Fransisco.

It's been a busy, exciting year clearly! But what about the most yawn-inducing event you experienced in 2011 ?
The hours after our gig at Hellfest. Watched Eyehategod but I almost feel asleep cos I was so tired after driving and flying the whole night before. Fuck Ryan Air.
