Traun, it rocked.
Today Munich. Matti and Thomas went to the old concentration camp Dachau, it was not a very uplifting experience but still interesting. Definately not recomended if you have a hangover.
David had to go to a doctor today to get some medication for his sore throat. Martin was passed out the whole day.
The crew from Metal Hammer was at the gig, very cool people indeed. After the show a few of us went to a bar with the Metal Hammer people for a few beers.
More firewater to follow…
Zurich – Switzerland today.
Tobias, David & Thomas watched the LIVE AFTER DEATH DVD in the bus. Matti was out for a walk in town and Martin did some interviews.
We signed tons of pictures for a Dismember competition. The show was really good, lots of people and it was hot as hell. The crowd was excellent!
After the gig Tobias and Thomas went to a bar owned by Martin Ain of Celtic Frost. The place was very cool, we where greeted by the guys from Celtic Frost, they where really cool and we got free beer the whole evening. Huh!!!!
More Irish coffee to follow…

A morning in Martigny.
David was the first one out of bed. Very cool venue, castle-like feeling with stonewalls and a nice stage. We went for a walk in the city. Found this very old church with a huge cross outside, of course we had to „curse“.
Then we sat in the bus and watched movies for a while. Tobias went up to an old castle up on a hill, it was a very nice view over the snowy alp mountains.
It was a sold out show tonight.
Today we woke up in Ravenna – Italy.
David, Matti & Martin went to a bar to drink some really nice Italian coffee while Tobias and Thomas went for a walk in town and got lost as usual…
Typical Saturday in Italy – tons of crazy Italians just waiting to go berzerk and headbang to Dismember. Lots of stagedivers who stepped on our nice old heavy metal pedals while running up on stage. This was one of the better gigs so far on the tour.
We had to leave quite early after the show but still we got time to have a few beers and talk to fans after the show. Before the bus left, all the bands and crew stood and watched while the most drunk guy was carried out to a car waiting to drive him home.
More passed out fans to follow…
Nova Gorcia in Slovenia today.
Martin bought tons of cheep cigarettes to bring home. We heard of the assault on Pain today and Martin called up their bassplayer Johan to check if everything was ok.
We met a friend from Kroatia who had traveled 400 km to see us. The place was packed with people going crazy during the gig.
Afer the gig we sat in the bus and chilled when a crazy drunk fan showed his appreciation by licking the dirty bus window.

Wien – Austria.
We took the U-bahn into the city of Wien. We walked around for a couple of hours, the town is really beautiful with lots of old houses everywhere. Perfect for us since we are really into everything old-school.
Tobias and David found some cool albums at the Metal market. Sepultura, Sodom and Rebellion.
The gig was really good. The crowd was banging its heads off!
After the show there was an afterparty at a bar outside the venue. Thomas stole a pair of glasses (he’s still wearing them when he is drunk…) David was sitting alone in the bus, listening to Sodom until the rest of the guys came back drunk from the party. Then the party continued on the bus with Sodom on very high volume.
Prag – Chech republic.
Martin and David decided early to take a walk in one of the nicest cities in the world. We had a really nice breakfast in the very centre. Then we took off to the very old cathedral and walked on the Charles bridge. The weather was really great. Sun was shinig.
When the rest of the hungover guys finally woke up they went out for a walk as well. Thomas bought a Motörhead pin, Tobias an Angelwitch LP and Matti an old bajonette from the 2:nd world war.
Today it was an early gig, we went on stage at 21.00, but the place was packed and the crowd was great!
After the show some of us had a few beers with two fans from Sweden who where in Prag for vacation and they took the opportunity to come to our show.

Back in Germany again, Darmstadt.
We had a walk around town. Thomas bought some presents for his family. David, Tobias & Thomas visited the local record store, David bought a John Dowland album. Tobias bought a Black Sabbath patch. On the way back to the venue the three amigos got lost again.
Back at the venue David and Martin played a Fussball game against Mixen and Jakob from Hatesphere. Unfortunately Denmark won against Sweden this time… Danskjävlar!
The gig was great! Lots of people. Martins amplifier died after a couple of songs, but our excellent crew fixed the problem in no time.
We left the venue right after the gig, some of the Hatesphere guys got really drunk on the bus and decided to go crazy, Danish style.
Hannover rock city!
We did interviews during the evening. Very good catering today. We watched some movies in the bus.
Once again a great gig with lots of headbangers.
After the show Tobias and Thomas went to an afterparty with the guys from Hatesphere and people from their record company. They managed to find their way back to the bus at 04.30 in the morning without getting lost this time…
Nice venue. Martin and David challenged Jakob and Pepe on dart. It was time for revenge from the football game! And this time Sweden crushed Denmark big time!
It was a really funny gig, lots of joking around today. We played a part of the Judas Priest song ‘Painkiller’ between two songs. One guy in the audience was constantly screaming „Rock & Roll!“ so we spontaneously began to play some AC/DC style rock.
There was an afterparty at the venue so we had some beers and talked to people.

Last week I talked about why a strong web site is crucial to your business. Today I’m going to talk about five components your web site needs and why you need them. Bear in mind, however, that these five aren’t the only components you need. At the end of the article, I’ll mention a couple of other things you may want to include. Now, you can’t just slap these components on a web site and have something great. You’ll still need some solid graphic design, good usability and ease of navigation, plus you definitely want to make sure your design, copy, and code are developed using principles of search engine optimization. With those cautionary notes aside, let’s dive in to the five components you need for a successful web site.

1. Opt-In Box
If you’re not capturing your visitor’s details with an opt-in box, you’re missing one of the greatest marketing tools available online today. An opt-in box is a place where people enter their name and e-mail address (or just their e-mail address, but I’ve found it’s useful to have more information), and then they subscribe to your e-mail newsletter or e-zine (pronounced “EE-zeen”). You can start building a relationship with your subscribers with regular, useful contact (defining “regular, useful contact” is a separate article in and of itself).

2. Who you are
Generally speaking, if you’re selling either a product or a service, you’ll want your customers or clients to trust you. Part of building trust is sharing a bit about you and how your company got started.
3. What you do
Obviously, if you want to sell your products or services, you’ll need to talk about them. This is where good marketing copywriting comes in handy. If you’re not good at writing marketing copy that converts visitors into buyers, hire someone who knows how to do it well. Investing in good copywriting can make all the difference.

4. Sticky content
Sticky content refers to any content on your web site that attracts people and keeps them there, kind of like flypaper. Consider your blog, articles, audio and videos, and other resources, to be the flypaper that keeps visitors “stuck” to your site. The longer they stay at your site, the more likely they are to convert into buyers. There is, however, a point where your content will hit critical mass and can be too sticky. If you give too much away, your potential buyers won’t need to buy. They’ll settle for the freebies and never convert into sales.
5. Contact Information
Potential clients and customers will want to know how to contact you for several reasons. If they can contact you, they can buy from you with the assurance that if they experience any troubles with the product, they’ll be able to ask questions or process returns easily. Also, they can ask you questions before they buy. There’s a long list of other reasons customers and clients may want to contact you, and they’ll feel safer buying if they can contact you easily. So provide at least phone and e-mail, and if you can, provide a physical address as well. If you work from home, don’t post your home address. Instead, get a P.O. box or a box at the UPS Store and post that instead.
If you’re selling products or services online, in addition to these five components, you’ll do well to invest in a shopping cart system and a payment processing system. Forcing potential buyers to contact you to get purchasing information ensures that those buyers will go elsewhere most of the time. We live in a high-demand, instant gratification world. If someone is shopping in the middle of the night or on a Sunday and they want what you have to offer but they can’t get it when they want it, they’ll buy it from someone else who can deliver instantaneously. Don’t give your potential buyers a reason not to buy from you.
So how do you implement all this stuff? How do you get a web site with these components, plus good design, good usability, and strong SEO? Next week, I’ll talk about how to hire a web firm to design your site. I’ll tell you how to educate yourself so you know enough to ask the right questions and know when you’re getting the right answers, how to balance value and price, and what red flags to watch out for.
