I’m headed to Migration Fest in a few weeks. I can’t fly, and I live in Salem, Massachusetts, so getting to Olympia, Washington is gonna take quite a few days, but it will be so unbelievably worth it. I mean, just look at the bands that are playing (except Emperor, they’re definitely not playing, but False is doing an Emperor cover set). This is literally like 75% of my favorite metal bands. Bell Witch! Panopticon!! Hell!!! Mizmor!!!! Mournful Congregation!!!!! Un-fucking-real.
There’s still some day passes left (Friday is sold out) but people who bought a weekend pass and can’t go are selling their passes on the Facebook event page, so it’s still not too late to get in on this.
See you there?
UPDATE: I totally fucked up and played a song from a different Eos band than the one that played the fest. I played the Canadian black metal Eos on Fallen Empire instead of the Olympian doom Ēōs with three self-released demos. Sorry about that!
