this is Mithras. Been a while again, but we're still here and still busy. We recently did a few live shows, the first one with Solbrud from Denmark in a small little cellar in Frankfurt. I had driven all the way from Berlin to get there, as I was gigging with my other band and another side project, and Nihlathak was tired as fuck from a party the night before. The gig was pretty good though, but note the glitter curtain behind us on the - otherwise epic - pic below.

Solbrud ripped it up that night as well, so all around a nice little underground black metal concert not too far away from home.

|... while trying not to hit our heads on the fucking chandelier.|
Fun fact of the night - one of our chandeliers was standing in the breeze caused by the stage ventilation. We had put new candles on it before the show, and after 35 minutes there was just a huge pool of wax on the floor, and the candles had vanished.
Anyways, got a speeding ticket on the way back to Darmstadt fro driving FUCKING 120 ON THE AUTOBAHN AT NIGHT. But all in all, a pretty good weekend with two good shows - it always feels best doing two or more shows in a row.
Currently, we've been rehearsing "Astronomy" a lot as Nihlathak and I will record vocals coming Tuesday. But I'll write more about that another time.
