Into Overdrive

Posted in Uncategorized on April 12, 2018 by Sara Hammerzmith

These past few days has been quite the rollercoaster, to say the least. A lot of good stuff has happened to me, I’ve been excited over the smallest of things – the sun is shining. I have nothing to complain about now have I?

My delayed order from H&M finally arrived too which means I have all my bikinis ready would I make a return to 70.000 Tons of Metal next year, and on top of that, I got my new headphones.

I used to use my The Sims 4 headphones for the longest of time, but it seems that the extensive use and bending of the the cable has made it glitch a bit, and that certainly wasn’t helping my situation. So I decided to invest in a new pair, and not just that – but a pair without a cable. Considering I’m only going to use them at home, it really doesn’t matter, you know?

Aside that, it’s just three or two weeks left to Stockholm Rock City, which I sort of last minute decided to go to. But it’s going to be epic, I am sure of it. How could it not? Art Nation, Slaughter, One Desire, Dynazty? It’s beyond perfect if you ask me!

With that said, it’s time for me to get to bed.

New Mask – Mr Lordi

Posted in Uncategorized on April 7, 2018 by Sara Hammerzmith

Here he is! The big man!

The mask has become very basic – not in a bad way necessarily, rather that instead of being completely torn up, it’s has more well placed cuts and burns. Reminding me a bit of “Get Heavy” era, just as with the eyeballs around his neck. His fangs seem to be bigger this time around, but it’s gonna take some time to get adjusted to the color. Right now they look a little out of place, but perhaps that’s an image issue?

Overall, it’s a good look – and despite giving nods toward Get Heavy, it’s still relatively new. Can’t wait for the all body shoots!

Ghost Town

Posted in Uncategorized on April 6, 2018 by Sara Hammerzmith

Seriously.

I think my heart stopped for a moment while on Facebook, watching Rock City Stockholm announce the headliner for Friday.

I saw the picture. Familiar faces, yet I couldn’t recognize them. I read the names, and I even if I knew exactly what that combination of names meant, everything became a fog. My head got heavy, I didn’t really comprehend – what am I reading? Why do I get a nauseous feeling and my head getting dizzy? I try to look for an explanation and even if I knew, it wasn’t until I saw the line

“Slaughter needs no further introduction” that I understood.

Slaughter is coming back to Sweden.

And for a moment – time stopped. Slaughter has been one of my all time favorite bands for a good 11 years now. I have seen them once before, on Sweden Rock 2012. I never thought I’d get to see them again, and the few times they’d been to Europe since then I never had the chance to see them.

But here they are. At a festival that I already had some plans on attending. I’m still trying to get down from the high, trying to dry the happy tears coming.

Slaughter is coming back to Sweden.

Finally. After all this time.

New Mask – Mana

Posted in Uncategorized on April 5, 2018 by Sara Hammerzmith

Mana’s new face everybody! First and foremost.

THE BIRD. It looks real cool.

But, let’s get back to the face. So, the first thing that struck my mind when I saw it was Kita’s Deadache look, with the ponytail or whatever you want to call it. But I can imagine it’s handy. It looks like he has some sort of cap over his head, and that together with the wrinkles makes me think of Skalle-Pär from Ronja Rövardotter, he looked something like that.

The fangs look great too. If anything, they exist more. I love the detail with the chain too.

Overall, a very good look for Mana. It’s, if anything, very new.

New Mask – Hella

Posted in Uncategorized on April 4, 2018 by Sara Hammerzmith

And here she is! The Scarbie! Homegirl!

So, what could not really be seen on the groupphoto, which is the first thing obviously that I notice, is the pink stripes in her hair. Which look awesome on her!

The second thing is her pretty new face. It was brought up in discussions that her mask sort of reminds you of a hockeymask, like the one of Jason Voorhees. That it something I’d never have picked up on myself since I, you know, don’t really watch horror movies, but when it was mentioned, I was like, yeah, that’s fucking right.

She looking damn good up and close, and I’m in love with her choker as well.

New Mask – Amen

Posted in Music, Uncategorized with tags on April 3, 2018 by Sara Hammerzmith

So here he is! The “ancient assassin” – I love that they add the old titles of the band. Finally starting to use the backstories they once had. Are any of the newer fans even aware of them? No clue.

That aside, this one MAJOR upgrade from “Monstereophonic” where I don’t even know anymore how I felt about. It was odd. Beyond odd. So seeing him with a new, vicious face just rubs me the right way.

I particularly like that the eyes has been shaped into having a constant angry face – in change from the like, surprised? kind of face he had before. Exposed bone above the eye. And seems like someone, got his nose.

Either way, it’s a major upgrade. And I like it.

New Mask – OX

So here he is! The hellbull, up and close. OX has never been among my favorite costumes before – I have liked him, but he’s never been among my favorite designs.

Until now.

Because for the first time, probably ever with OX, I felt absolutely terrified when I saw him.

He’s gone from being an ordingary carcass of a bull to some mix between Belsebub and Krampus looking extremely vicious. The brand new red skintone doesn’t exactly help either – making him look like he burned in hell and returned to haunt the lives of us puny peasants.

His hair seem to come in dreads now, rather than one big wig as it was before, unless this is just a trick of the image, and I love the skull pearls that has been added to it.

Now, I can’t even begin to wait for the full on body shots to investigate the bodies a bit more.
