HAM returns with Vestur Berlín

in NEWS by

A legendary rock band HAM (with the current Minister of Health of Iceland as a member) returns with new song entitled Vestur Berlín that is an ode to the West Berlin. The single announces an anticipated album that hopefully will be released in early May 2017.

So I packed my backpack and tent and went to the small fjord in eastern Iceland with a town called Neskaupstaður that has a population of 1500 people. The amount of festivalgoers…

Getting in the ring with legends – HAM

in Live by

Do you know that feeling when after such an incredible gig you just need a glass of beer? Not even a cigarette that may decorate this moment, maybe just because it was a crazy windy day in the dark Reykjavík. You were speechless. Noone could rub out a wild smile from your face. You thought that possibly maybe the universe was just destroyed so you were moving in no time and no space. Although you were in the middle of the storm called Iceland Airwaves, you actually didn´t need to see any other band tonight. That was enough joy. That…
