Our thunder and love goes to you!

THE TALE OF THE BUCIFER HEART TRANSPLANT
The wind that blows through the streets bears a smell of water and decaying leaves. It’s an October morning in Hamburg, and still dark. Twelve souls rise from the dead once again to journey forward on the Heavy Thunder Tour: Demon Head and Göteborgs finest heavy metal warriors, Night Viper. Two evil driver twins have aided them along this adventure through snow, castles, wagenplatz's and of course, the highway. This day is the final show on the tour, and everyone needs to be in Copenhagen early. This Heavy Thunder concert is also the release of a new 7”, and the night promises wild times with heavy rock punk friends from near and far: Alucarda, Gr8 Freedom, Polio & Julie and Vidunder.
The machine that helps Night Viper travel through time and space, also known by the name of Belzebus, ignores all obstacles and does not hesitate to take its passengers to their destination in time.
The demon head travel machine, often referred to as Satanslæden or Bucifer, on the other hand, had no intentions of aiding the cause, despite having all tires changed the day before. Closing in on the northern sea of Germany, no more than a lightyear from the sailing machine that takes you to the land of the danes, Bucifer decides to give up. On the side of the road, the demon heads attempt mechanics, sorcery and violence, but to no avail: the wheels will not turn. Stuck on a small gas station, plans are discussed. The cargo of the car is essential for the night, the instruments the very backline that all other bands will use. Of the six passengers, four take to the ferryboat immediately to hitch a ride for Copenhagen.
Two attempt to contact a greater vehicle to transport the boat onto danish soil, and from there ride on the back of a greater beast to their hometown. Not before long, the remaining two are approached by a fellow pilot of chaos, that offers to transport everything in his van. Thor remains hidden in the cargo, sleeping among amplifiers and drums and old carpets, and so they take off. Meanwhile, the four have no success in catching a ride to Copenhagen, and on the ferry they are close to giving up. But after a while, at the first waterhole on land, some of them are speeded on.
The others jump a train. At the border, the two traveling with the instruments and the french gentleman, his partner and their canine friend, are pulled over by the authority people. Through some evasive spell, their driver convinces the authorities to let them drive on with their illegal cargo – Thor – in the back. Eventually, all make it to Copenhagen, once again thanks to the help of friends and strangers. And the night is indeed wild and full of loud, pleasurable tones and the strange dances of outcasts and outlaws. A heavy thunder night, not soon to be forgotten, and a night that would not have been, if not for the intense aid of the brave and dark knights of punk rock that roam the streets of copenhagen.
Bucifer, abandoned in a ditch in germany, was not to be left there for good anyhow. And so, two demon head ghouls were sent on a quest to retrieve the remains. A mechanical sorcerer by the name of lord Plambeck, who at first doomed the driving machine, took it on his cape to devise a scheme of resurrection. And so it came to pass, that lord Plambeck in a month long dark spell of blood and oil, created a new heart of new and old, not so fortunate driving machines, and thus brought Bucifer back to life.
Depleting the demon heads of the gold they had gathered throughout the exploits, Bucifer runs till this day, and have had many adventures since, with many more to come.
Thank you, worshipper of rock, for aiding this cause…
