Live music is my happy place, so I see as many bands as I can in as many different cities as I can. One late night in Edmonton with a few friends, I spontaneously walked into a local concert venue looking forward to seeing an alt-rock band I knew was playing in the city that night. After paying $40 at the door, I slowly realized, based on the apocalyptic paraphernalia, the number of security staff and a Google search, that we had instead just paid to see a Norwegian black metal band. Picture a combination of shrieking vocals and corpse-painted faces, with impaled animal heads and medieval weapons for props. We stayed of course, and now Mayhem and Watain are my favourite black metal bands.
