Secret Rule: Shooting the music video in Amsterdam, Holland

Sunday 27.12.2015 Travel Day Kemi-Helsinki
So, the Secret Rule guys & gal asked me to be a part of their music video
for the upcoming album which I played the keyboards on….and I thought why not ?
This is gonna be a real quick one for me, I just get to Amsterdam for a few hours and
when we’re done I’ll fly back home. First up is the lovely trainride from Kemi to Helsinki starting at around 1600 and I’ll be at the airport at around 0100. I naturally spent the time in the train working or at least tried to, I blame the poor internet connection for ending up drinking in the restaurant car…

Monday 28.12.2015 Travel Helsinki-Amsterdam-Helsinki + Music Video Shoot
After doing a small detour in the Helsinki nightlife, I ended up at the airport, took a nap,
checked in, took another nap and ended up on the plane…sleeping. When i arrived in Amsterdam everything was back to ok ;-) The SR guys picked me up and we went for the venue where we shot the video….and took some promo pics as well. After a
good day at work, I was brought back to the Shiphol airport and made my way towards
Helsinki and later on back home.

Tuesday 29.12.2015 Travel Day
I managed to sleep for a couple of hours at the aiport before my train(s) left at
around 0546….a couple of trainchanges later I was home at just before 1400

in the afternoon. A really quick trip but it was fun.

Hola peeps, let’s see what’s going on:

Silent Voices & E.Vil finished the tour as you probably already
saw. Some shirts are still available at the official SA fanclub

Klingenberg Syndrome 2 : Still finishing up the stuff as well
as working on the cover etc… 

Winterborn: Some more songs have been popping in , still
no clue about when it’ll be out. Might do a show or two with
them next year though ;-)

Secret Rule: Yeah, I didn’t join another band, no worries….
…however I did play keyboards for their upcoming album.
A bunch of great songs and it was a lot of fun to work on this
thing. It should be out sometime next year, check it out.

Here’s some more info about the band:

Freeride: I’m also playing some organ on a track by my friends
band, it should also be out next year. Totally different from what
I usually do, this is a blues band. Check it out: 

I think that’s all for now, looking forward to have a short Christmas
break once I get these things done…and in January 2016 the Sonata
Arctica mayhem is starting again. Meanwhile enjoy our Christmas single:
