PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having enjoyed the music of The 69 Eyes since around 2003, I just might look into this streaming concert. While it’s true that I wanted to see the Sonata Arctica, Katatonia, Swallow The Sun and Insomnium ones, I just found myself getting tied up keeping my personal world in order since the time was finally here to do it. If there is one thing we can take from the quarantine time, its the chance to address things that you might have slacked on. Since we still have some time to go in this process, I’m going to refer you all to a hopefully fun set of suggestions that I did for my other website “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken”. Check that item out HERE and let me know what you think about this streaming concert. You can do that down in the comments section below. Kippis.
