My first trip to Finland was in November 2007, 2 my friends and I went to Helsinki to visit the concert of the finnish band ARCHGOAT. We stayed in Helsinki for 5 days! It was so cool there, I fell in love with Finland. Beautiful quiet country, calm, friendly and interesting people, nice bars.
We had 4 nights there, 3 were booked in the hostels, one we couldn't book, on that day there were no vacant rooms for 3 people. Well, we decided to live our bags at thecentral railway station and walk from bar to bar all night long.
It was our third day in Helsinki. At the day time we walked around the city, were in the history museum, ate at the cafe and at the evening we met our finnish friend Antti Oinonen. He was with the greek band ZEMIAL, and we partied with them at the bar and then in the club. Then Antti invited us to his flat and we drank more with him and fell asleep. When I got up in 5 hours I was still drunk)) hehe
on the fourth day of our trip there was an ARCHGOAT concert. They were just perfect. It's one of myfavourite black metal bands!!! And also at that show I've discovered the new band for me, it's german band Necros Christos!! Awsome music and lyrics and sound!!! WOW!!! Always listen to them now. Really happy that I had an opportunity to see their live performance!
Here are some photos from that crazy trip.
