    Poets of the Fall – Rebirth 2020

    Rebirth… the song I wake up to every morning; Rebirth… the song one of my friends call sad & hopeless, but which I cannot help feeling joy and warmth when I hear it… Rebirth: the song that I cannot be without, ever. I’ve been working on this article for over a week, and it has never been so hard to write about a Poets of the Fall song. There is something strange at work when Rebirth is playing. I have been listening to the song a whole morning but I’ve been drawing a blank… like being numb. This is the only song from Poets of the Fall that has such…

    Happy 18th Birthday Poets of the Fall

    Poets of the Fall turns 18, today! Our Poets have finally reached majority…now, what that would mean “in the eyes of the law”, I leave to your own fantasy. 18 years is incidentally how long I have been living in Sweden (give or take a couple of weeks) 😏. The Poets family is celebrating all over the world… cakes were made and I believe Marko (probably the entire band actually) would love to have a bite πŸ˜‹ I know I would! 18 years of age, 11 albums later ( counting The Alexander Theatre Sessions, Live in Moscow 2013 and Alchemy Vol. 1) the band is, I assume, working on No.…

    Poets of the Fall – Stay Forever

    It doesn’t take much to feel overjoyed these days, but Stay Forever got the palm for me on this fine Monday of March. Do you know… Poets of the Fall stunned me again! Stay Forever has come at the most opportune time once more. I’ve only just realized that, mind you, but I’ll say it again Stay, the oddest of cues. While some things I wrote four years ago don’t completely apply to yours truly today, I find that Marko‘s whispers continue to taunt me in the kindest of ways. It’s the little things, little things, little things That make the world. From Stay to Stay Forever As I understand…

    Poets of the Fall – The Sweet Escape 2020

    Now that we are way past 2021’s threshold, it seems that not much has changed yet. Because it is a rather disturbing observation, my heart craves The Sweet Escape only Poets of the Fall is able to provide πŸ’•. You’d say “but you’ve already written loads about The Sweet Escape!” πŸ˜‰. I’d say, “Indeed, but as you may have noticed last year, PotF – Misfit Heart has not covered all the songs from Alexander Theatre Sessions (ATS) and one of the missing tracks is?… πŸŽΆπŸ‘ Yes! Precisely!“. Don’t forget to get your copy of Alexander Theatre Sessions! πŸ‘‡ On CD: ALEXANDER THEATRE SESSIONS On Cassette: ALEXANDER THEATRE SESSIONS, CASSETTE On…

    We’re still here! Smiling and expectantly looking ahead πŸ˜€ How did you get on… Are you alright? What did you do to better cope? β™₯ I virtually visited my family every day, chatted with friends and listened ceaselessly to Poets of the Fall. β™₯ β™₯ β™₯ Do you know, Poets of the Fall magic is all around β™₯ whether it’d be in music, thoughts or in dreams.

Nothing fancy really, just…

    Alexander Theatre Sessions Wrap Up Interview 2020

    Last Friday, the Alexander Theatre Sessions came to end with the last episode of the season: Carnival of Rust. Today, it is the last wrap up of the Alexander Theatre Sessions on Poets of the Fall Social media. It is with a small pinch to the heart that I say goodbye to these beautiful moments when time stood still once a month for a whole year. Although, goodbye is not farewell, I thought I’d give you all some extra time to enjoy it all. So while Poets of the Fall was busy wrapping up the Alexander Theatre Sessions on Social Media with great “Behind the Scenes” photos, I chanced and…

    Poets of the Fall – Carnival of Rust 2020

    “I’m afraid, this is the end! I bid you all a very fond farewell … goodbye!” (*) Whoosh! and just like that 2020 is coming to an end – Great! – but so are Poets of the Fall‘s Alexander Theatre Sessions… “We want more!” cheers the crowd. The band’s parting gift is an incredible version of Carnival of Rust. It is the song, according to Spotify Wrap, that I listened to the most, this year. Go figure! It is the Poets song that is the most reacted to on YouTube and if memory serves, it is one of the songs that got me hooked on Poets of the Fall –…
