On Friday, I helped Sebastian and the rest of Rimfrost to pack up two cars with gear (guitars, stage backdrop, cymbals…) and we headed to the small city of Trollhättan, and a little place called Backstage Rock Bar for Black Metal Night, where Rimfrost played alongside fellow Swedes Murdryck and Svältvinter.
Friday night was a special one for me, not only because I was seeing Rimfrost play live for the very first time, but also because it was my first experience of capturing a band backstage, preparing for their show. The fact that it was Sebastian’s band made the experience all the more valuable.
The feeling of pride that I felt watching my man on the stage is unlike anything I’ve ever felt before. If you can imagine that your heart feels like it’s ten times its normal size, and is about to burst because you’re so happy, well, that’s pretty much what it was like.
