Another wildfire broke out in Greece,in southern Peloponisos this time. The fire started in the early afternoon and it spread fast due to strong winds in the area. By now the fire has killed 19 people and burned down more than 10 villages. The area the fire broke out was one of the most beautiful places in Greece, a great forest which was a habitat to a lot of animals,small villages that lived from agriculture and an unspoiled,small paradise called Kaiafa. 125 fires in one day!!!! How the fuck can this happen?! And when i opened the tv,to watch about the fire,all i could hear was fuckin' excuses!! They said they're sad of what happened,yet they didn't tried to hard to prevent it (they only have 7 Canadeer planes and the 2-3 of them are disabled!!) and there were not enough firefighting squads.They said that they mourn for the people that died but all these people in the end all they get are lies,promises and some more empty promises!!! They said they are sad for all the property that burned down and destroyed! No politician said anything about the ecological destruction that the fire caused,about all the animals that died (and i think that there are some rare species in that area). So here it is....we're about to live the bleak future that all these years we had only seen in crust record covers! Gasmasks and all that stuff. My only wish is to see all the people responsible for the destruction of the planet hanged or being ripped in shreds by a flock of wolves!!! There's nothing left anymore......

After 3 days of non-stop party and live shows i'm back to the misery of everyday life...shit! Anyway,the first official Arm Your Desires festival was fuckin' great despite the bad weather, luckily the kids that organized the fest were prepared for the worst and everything rolled smoothly,when the rain started to fall they covered the stage with two tents so the bands could play. The worst thing that happened was that my cameras' batteries went out at some point and i only got pictures from 5 bands out of 16 that played both days....here are some of them.From top to bottom:Swartzandanger (grindcore-metal),Nekra Katsikia Trikavalo (crust),Terrorismo Musical(goregrind),xFor No Reasonx (old-school hc),Dyspnea (crust)
