Sorry, diesen Bericht gibt's nur auf Englisch...

After all the traveling, time for my home game in Trondheim! Unfortunately on a weekend where I was way too busy – hurrying from band practice right to the concert, just making it in time, and having to take it slowly and soberly so I would manage to get up way too early the next morning … Well, I guess I shouldn’t complain, because Skambankt playing in Trondheim this weekend made it possible for me to still see them! =;-)

Sadly, I missed the last support gig from Longfield & Super Skeleton, but from what I heard, they got a great reception as always. Samfundet wasn’t quite sold out, but it looked really crowded, and everyone on the floor was HOT for the concert! Lots of Skambankt shouts before the concert even started, and once Skambankt came on, people were really into the show. Interestingly enough, it seemed like most knew the new songs really well – and maybe even better than the old ones? The poll a bit later on showed as well that there were a lot of “first-timers” in the audience again.

At least on the floor. It seemed like the seats were filled with the … guess I’ll have to call them “old-timers”? =;-) During the last (non-Skambankt) concerts at Samfundet, I noticed that it seems to have changed so that the seats are now actually for sitting, not for standing, dancing, having fun without anybody jumping into your back anymore … =:-( And that’s how the Skambankt concert started out as well, with people sitting down, relaxing, and enjoying their beer. Hey guys, this is a concert!!

Anyway, that lasted for about half the concert, until Terje pointed out that he can actually SEE them sitting there, and that unless they have a very good reason for sitting, they’d better get up! His first request was collectively ignored, but the second time it actually worked, and people stood up and started getting into the concert. Which was awesome!

And just to make that clear – this does not mean that the atmosphere was bad before! Quite the opposite, actually, because the fans on the floor made up for what those in the seats lacked in the beginning. Loud singing, a huge mosh pit, and constant Skambankt shouts – yep, all props to Trondheim, that was amazing!

Unlike at the other concerts, Skambankt started out with Protest dommer, then Voodoo, then I dette huset. And this worked great! Protest dommer sounds great live. The only downside – maybe? – is that whenever Skambankt play Protest dommer, they don’t play Fremmed i en fremmed verden … or well, at least they never did at any of the two concerts I saw where they played Protest dommer. *lol* I might be overgeneralizing a bit here, who knows. =;-)

In any case, the concert was awesome, and the audience was amazing. Or “sinnsykt”, as Terje put it before they went off for the first time. As always, we got Anonyme hatere, Malin and Skambankt as encores – and during Skambankt, Longfield & Super Skeleton came out to celebrate their last concert. Fully dressed, fortunately – guess they are slightly more sane than Kvelertak. =;-) And since the stage was full anyway, Terje started to get people from the audience up on stage as well. =;-)

Off they went again, but the audience wasn’t satisfied with that – so for the first time ever on this tour, they came on again for a second encore! Mantra as very last song, and that was it – even though the audience still hadn’t gotten enough. =:-) They did come on one more time, but just to say bye (probably since it was past midnight already). And everyone walked out with a huge smile on their faces … yay! Venerunt, viderunt, vicerunt! =:-D
