[#94] 2018 05 08 - Wacken Metal Battle 2018
Wacken Metal Battle 2018
We've realized that we never said anything after this competition on our website, only on Facebook and Youtube... and we can summarize it with these words:

"We went there, did our thing, the audince loved it, we found some new fans, we had a lot of fun, we traveled far, we paid for rental car, we paid for the hotel, we paid for the gas etc...but unfortunately we didn't go through to the finals. The stage was amazing, the sound was fantastic and the lights where awesome! Even though if we didn't win we had a lot of fun and created some good memories along the way!"

We did what we could, and thank you all for supporting us!! There are definitely things that could be better with the total Wacken Metal Battle event... but we don't have to care now that we're out :)

We'd like to congratulate CHUGGER for winning the finals in the competition! At least a proper good band won the competition and we hope them the best of luck and fun going to Wacken 2018. Cheers guys!

/Black Magic Fools

Wish us luck! :)

- "So were can I buy this new awesome t-shirt?"

[#38] 2013 04 24 - Black Magic Fools updates
Black Magic Fools updates
So what's happening right now??!?

It's a lot going on at the moment, some bad things and some REALLY positive ones.
Let's start with the bad things first.
Since our last bass player Ida produced a baby it got harder for her to continue to play. So we converted her to her original instrument that actually is a Violin :)

So we needed to find a replacement bass player and turned to Johannes who followed us to Hörnerfest last year and kicked some ass together with us!
Unfortunately he had to many other music projects ongoing and couldn't find a gap to go 100% on Black Magic Fools at the moment.. shame.. Johannes is an awesome bass player and an even MORE awesome dude!
So we're actually still in a search for a bass player! If you know anyone near by, give us a call :)

Meanwhile, the better news :)

1. We're definitely NOT dead during this time, we're actually rehearsing and creating new songs! We're really finding our sound and the creativity is glowing :)

2. We're also looking into the making of a music video! So we're planning a lot right now to be able to make this come true. We'll follow up with more news about this when we have some interesting to tell :)

3. And Björn, our drummer and Designer, is always in the making on some stuff for us. Right now he's working on an upcoming Design of our Website! It should suite our latest EP regarding Design and stuff. We're eager to see what he'll come up with :)

4. We're still having t-shirts and copies of our latest merchandise at our webshop at this adress:

We'll come back soon with some more happy updates for ya'll! Stay tuned!

Black Magic Fools Hörnerfest 2012
We just got home from an AWESOME festival in Germany called Hörnerfest were we got the great opportunity to play at!

We arrived to the very small village of Brande/Hörnerkirchen at midnight when the GPS said "You have now arrived at your destination"… but there we're nothing more than trees and darkness around us.. shit, we we're lost!
But with some help from our friend from Spiegelkeller, some local dog walking people and expensive internet connections we finally after two hours of driving managed to find the camp!

Then the fun of putting up the tent in the dark began. It actually went quite well :)
The morning after we woke up to some rain… the first thing we thought was "noooo, we didn't wish to have travelled all the way to Germany to play in rain".

But after a few hours the rain disappeared and actually the sun came out!! F*CK YEAH!
You people in Germany made our show the best we've had so far! You are an awesome crowd! We loved the mosh pit you created at the end!! :D

We'd love to come back! Thank you so much for making our first show in Germany the best ever!
YOU ROCK!! Thank you so much! We'd also like to thank everyone backstage for the food, beer, nice company and the awesome sound guys! Really professional!

We hope to see you again soon! We would love to come back! :D

[#27] 2012 04 12 - Show at Valand May 4th
Show at Valand May 4th
While we're focusing on the upcoming EP we thought we'd make a show at Valand in Gothenburg! It's so nice getting out and perform live in a contrast to the life in a studio. So the 4th of May we'll play together with Mind Ghost, Evil's Eve and Myrkvedr! The theme for the night is once again "Mystic Metal Night". But this time we're not alone with the folkish and "medievalish" tunes because Myrkvedr will also bring metal from the medieval ages!

Evils Eve 's theatrical appearance, humor and performance of pure Rock surely suits the event!
Mind Ghost has recieved glorious reviews of their latest album "The Plastic Generation" and will blow you away!

Here's a link to the Facebook event.

Here's a link to the Poster (made by Björn our Drummer)

An awesome night! We hope to see you there! :)

First recording weekend for the new EP
It has begun!

Our new EP is slowly unfolding! We traveled the 16th of mars to a Studio in Malmö/Sweden with 4 (!!) guitars and most of the drum set packed into one small car. After a few hours of dirty talk and a lot of bad stories we ended up in Malmö and started unloading the transport.

First up we spend SOME time adjusting and tuning the guitar for the right sound.. that took a while! :) Finally done it was time for the actual recording of the chosen songs.
Really awesome work by Daniel our guitar player. Unfortunately we couldn't play all night so we went to bed late and got up early to continue with the last guitars.

Meanwhile I started setting up the drum set. I think we finally counted 13 microphones around the drum set hoping to get the most awesome sound we could get!
Then we encountered some problems with the double pedal and also some "creaking noises" from the toms. But some duct tape solved that! :)
Then it was time to record some drumming! it was warm and tiresome but I think the result's gonna be awesome!
Finally we started to record some bass, but unfortunately our studio time ran out. But we'll finish the bass until the upcoming weekend to record the Bagpipe, Hurdy-Gurdy and Fiddle.

Upcoming weekend will be 13-15th of april! Until then, STAY METAL!

Black Magic Fools at Sticky Fingers
While preparing and focusing for the upcoming second studio recording we would like to present some of the new songs. On 29th of February, a date that only occurs every forth year, we'll now be playing at Sticky Fingers ground floor together with Amnesia, Neverlast and Striking Distance.

It starts at 20:00, no band order is arranged yet! so be there in time :)

The easiest way to buy a ticket is to buy one here for 70:-. Otherwise its 100:- at the door.

We all hope to see you there!!!

[#24] 2012 02 05 - Updated website design!

Congratulations "Skyforger", "Deals Death" and "The Gloria Story" for having won the three spots to play at the festival! We fought hard all the way to the finals and came in 13th place among the 1500 band from the beginning. And we're of course stoked about even make it to the finals! Thats awesome!! :D
