Anni De Vil’s Diary (No. 2)
Here’s the hotly anticipated second instalment of our new blog from Anni De Vil, vocalist with fast-rising Swedish femme-metallers Hysterica. This week: find out all about Hysterica’s new member, the scarily monikered Marydeath, and how she caused an airport-security upset with her dress made out of chains! Go here to read Anni De Vil’s previous diary entry.
A week ago we had our first gig with our newest member, Marydeath on keyboards, in Umeå up north in Sweden. Since we hadn’t played for eight months and hadn’t played with keybords in two years we were all kind of nervous before the show – especially Marydeath, of course.
It all started on Arlanda Airport in Stockholm. You see, there is always a problem to check in swords on the aircraft. God knows why…
The security guards got suspicious when they discovered a large amount of metal and cables inside Marydeath’s hand lugagge. The guards opened her bag and pulled out her new stage outfit – a dress made out of chains and all of the cables and adapters for her keyboards.
They then made her go back and send every single item in her luggage through the security check one-by-one again, including her underwear. We all started laughing and I think we made the day for the security guys. But it all turned out well and we had a kick-ass time in Umeå.
This weekend we are having our first gig in Stockholm with Marydeath. We are very excited and have been looking forward to this for quite some time now. We are going to play on a club called Pub Anchor. It is a true metal place and we have all had a couple of crazy nights in there…
I’m really hoping to see a lot of girls made of heavy metal and heavy metal men this weekend on Pub Anchor! Make sure to be there!
