* The return to the stage in 2012.
Watching the band rehearse the whole set (a couple of the songs were cut later inc:House Of God,The Wheelchair,Blood To Walk & Never Ending Hill) in Sonic Train Studios,Varberg at the end of May.
A few days later on June 1st traveling with Andy,Mike & Matt from Varberg to pick up Hal in Copenhagen.
From there we drove down to the stage rehearsal in Vejle,Denmark meeting up with King.
And then watch the new stage and the band starting their full stage rehearsal.
On June 9th the band did their first gig in 6 years at Sweden Rock Festival.Great moment to have been a little part of that journey.
