Egypt KNOWS how to rock!!
May 21, 2010

Our trip to Egypt was in many ways amazing. Lovely people, exciting culture, friendly people and above all a fantastic audience! Playing for such a faithful and energetic crowd was a pleasant experience. I’m not exaggerating when I say that the Egyptian public is by far the best I’ve encountered! I hope we’ll come back to Egypt to meet you all again.

If there’s one word to describe Egypt it would be ‘surprising’. The crazy traffic was surprising: NO TRAFFIC RULES whatsoever, I’ve never seen anything like it!  The heat was surprising: in Alexandria it was around 33°C but then we drive to Cairo and all of a sudden it’s 45°C; some crazy numbers considering it was May.. and last but not least the Egyptian fans were surprising!! Never in a million years would I have thought we’d get the response we did! The support was out of this world! By far the best crowd we’ve ever had! The adrenaline on stage kicks in even harder when you hear the crowd going wild, and the most important thing for us is that people are having a blast. That’s what makes it worth while! Thanks to Mascara and the Swedish Institute in Alexandria we managed to have a successful tour! The promotion for both shows was superb since the turn out was awesome!! Both crowds in Alexandria and Cairo were phenomenal, and to prove this.. we will shortly upload a video to show you how awesome you guys were! 😛

Egypt. Wow. Coming back it feels like there still a lot to process since it was such an eventful trip for us! The gigs in Alexandria and Cairo were both had amazing crowds, I could tell that the metal crowd there don’t get enough concerts, they seemed very “hungry” for some rock music and we were really happy to give them some! I wish we have had more time to hang with everyone at the show though! In Alex we could say hi to some and take loads of pictures but the police or guards or whoever they were seemed a bit jittery and made everyone leave the area before we had the chance to say hi to everyone who wanted..:-(
In Cairo it was even worse were they didn’t allow us to go out and meet the people because they feared our safety! LOL! While that made us feel a bit like real rockstars it was sad cause we love meeting the crowd after the shows.

OMG!! What an awesome experience!!! I only wish we were there in a better time and not during exam period! I know how sad most of you were to miss our show, that’s why I think we should come back! If everyone writes an email to the Swedish Institute of Alexandria and asks to bring us again… I’m sure we’ll be back!! =) hahahahaha…I’m sorry Cairo we didn’t get to meet you guys after, as Simon said, security didn’t allow it for our protection, we were really bummed. Meeting the fans is the second best part of playing live =) I want to thank our Egyptian fans for being so awesome, and soooo supportive! ALL of you shared some encouraging words on Facebook and it really made us soo happy. Thank you for believing in us! =)  Miss you guys x x x x
