Arvika Festival 2003 - Concerts
Thursday was the first night and we managed to catch parts of Björk, Chicks on Speed and Gothminister. The latter was so hard to get into, because there were so many people there. Good concert.

Saturday started with Colony 5 (picture).
Most of the people from Oslo showed up at this concert
In the beginning they sounded terrible, but it got a bit better as the concert went along. Good concert all in all, and you could see people were really having a wonderful time dancing and smiling.
DAF was cancelled, and HIM was moved from Apollo to Vintergatan (main stage) and played earlier than planned. So we ended up hearing HIM from the beer tent, and they sound as awful live as they've done before. Get back to the studio guys! And stay there!
Ministry played at Vintergatan also just before midnight. And that was an entire different concert. Though the singer looked like Axl Rose for some weird reason, the music was absolutely to my satisfaction. And of course when they played "So What" I had to sing along.
Ministry has a very metallic feel to the sound, more so live than the studio material, and it's almost like listening to very heavy music with the bass turned off. Strange, but not bad in any way really. It was a fun concert and I had to get back to camp to rest afterwards after dancing so much.
Someone who hasn't turned their bass off is Soulfly.
It was absolutely the best concert of this festival. Of course, I didn't see that many concerts, but I am sure a vast majority will agree with me.
From the first song the people in front was thrashing around and jumping like crazy. Fists in the air and screaming "SOULFLY SOULFLY SOULFLY" on command.
They played a great concert. I saw them in Oslo in January this year, but that concert was NOTHING compared to this riot.
One of the coolest songs live are of course "Tribe". Playing his weird instrument in the beginning, followed by beating of drums that makes your skin crawl. There's just something SO fundamental about those drums that goes straight to your heart, stomach and feet.
It is impossible to stand still at a Soulfly concert. Before you know it you're stamping your feet, shaking your ass and nodding your head and singing "back to the primitive..fuck all your politics.."
Though the music is more than enough to get people going crazy, Max and Marcello try their very best to get the audience into a frenzy by shouting Soulfly every fifth minute and encouring to both jumping and clapping you hands to pieces. And it's fuuuun!
Now this is how you treat a crowd...and your instruments. Whoooooha! Sorry..I mean...SOOOOOOUUUULFLYYYY!
