15 favorite metal albums…like, ever

One more list I’m working on (not ordered yet this one either):

“15 favorite metal albums…like, ever”

Cathedral – Forest of equilibrium
Carcass – Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious
Thorns – Thorns
Anathema – The Silent Enigma
At the Gates – Slaughter Of The Soul
My Dying Bride – As the Flower Withers
Sepultura – Arise
Paradise Lose – Shades of God
Metallica – Master of Puppets
Breach – Kollapse
Tiamat – Wildhoney
Slayer – Reign In Blood
Deftones – Adrenaline
Korn – Korn
Voivod – Nothingface

Perhaps sometime later I’ll admit that I really like Guns N’ Roses – “Appetite for Destruction”, but never got into either Iron Maiden, Kiss or AC/DC – but that is talking about Rock and not Metal (as my good friend Snorre would say, in his sarcastic tone saying the word “Rock”).

I also want to add that the best track of the 80s, whatever genre, is Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights”, and that’s not debateable.

Signs you’re growing up

New list! This list is probably going to see a lot of additions in the time to come, here is a start:

1. You start reading manuals for products you buy for the first time in your life

2. You manage admit to yourself that early Bruce Springsteen rules

3. Some songs (like “Blue” by Joni Mitchell) can make you seriously sentimental

4. Going out drinking more than once a week just gets tiresome

5. Spending time alone in nature suddenly makes sense

6. You buy your first fishingequipment and boat (seriously!)

7. You rediscover Kate Bush

8. The Quest for The Real Wasabi begins

9. You meet Schopenhauer’s Will, and some days it seems real

10. You’re happy you don’t have to be a teenager again

11. You turn up at work with baby-burp on you shirt

12. You spend more time talking than doing

Best of Sushi (Oslo)

After several requests, here comes my subjective list of 3 5 best places to have sushi in Oslo:

1) Nodee
Everything taken into concideration, I hold this to be the best place to get sushi in Oslo. The prices are fine (half of Alex), the service very good and waitors friendly, and the interiours some of the nicest in Oslo. A hidden pearl is their 3-part lunch (sashimi-maki-nigiri) for about 220,-

2) Alex Sushi
The menu offer great variation with super ingredients and composition – and the sashimi comes with an amazing ponzo sauce. Bring at least 1000,- and order the most expensive menu. Tacky 90s-interiour, and the waitors are a bit too posh – but the sushi itself is probably the best you can get in Oslo.

3) Sushi House (“every-day sushi”)
Their sushi house menu at 220,- is more than enough for two hungry people and is probably the cheapest sushi you can get in Oslo, which at the same time is really tasty and the perfect everyday-sushi-deal!

Earlier on the list: Jonoe and Nippon Art.

Bergen: Go to Red Sun for one of the very best sushi experiences you can get in Norway.
