Well this is nice. The Japanese site Babymetal Database features my posts on all things Babymetal, so things like this can happen. I kind of like this, feels good to see a bit of the past in there, a bit of the 1970s. Makes me wonder if there is a tune that Babymetal could cover in one way or another?

How about “Bloodsucker” from “In Rock” (1970)? Listen to it here.



Hello Japan! So nice to see my posts on Babymetal appear on the Babymetal Database shortly after I post them over here in Sweden (again, thank you so much for including my blog!). Just to know that fans in Japan are now visiting Trinkelbonker is just amazing. And who knows, maybe Babymetal themselves (or members of the band and management) will see some of these posts? If so, a big thank you for all the effort that you have put into this. This world needs Babymetal. People need positive vibes. I get that every day now thanks to you (the music and the spirit of it all is so positive) and I appreciate that so much. Rockers are indeed a community. We are one. Collecting your output is a pleasure. Thank you!

This is so nice. One of my favourite News feeds, the Babymetal Database, has added Trinkelbonker (or more specifically, the Trinkelbonker Babymetal Category) to their incoming feeds, meaning whenever I post something on Babymetal it will appear on their Database. This has to be one of the nicest things that anybody has ever done for this blog and I appreciate this so much. I knew that fans of Babymetal would eventually find out about Trinkelbonker and this is the moment right here right now. I am so happy to be part of the Babymetal Database Community.

And to the fans of Babymetal, welcome to Trinkelbonker. This blog is made in Sweden and Babymetal has been part of it since March 9 2017 when I discovered this wonderful project. I have added over 100 posts on Babymetal since then, covering history etc. Basically, I have been catching up. I am a former freelance journalist (METAL in the States, METAL HAMMER in Europe etc) and I also used to publish magazines in Sweden (DEEP PURPLE FOREVER, LUCY IN THE SKY, SLICE, RETROFUTURE) and quite honestly, maybe Babymetal will inspire me to publish another issue of RETROFUTURE some day?

Babymetal is the best thing that have happened in Metal since Nightwish came along. Long may Babymetal reign.


Fans of Japanese act Babymetal has a brilliant site to follow called Babymetal Newswire. Here you will find everything that goes on and many articles are translated to English from Japanese magazines. Everything is here. Case in point, check out the Kerrang (1648) cover that I found looking at articles published.

And you will find it all right here.

I pretty much nailed what Swedish journalism is all about yesterday – a hopeless leftist PC crowd hell bent on fucking up this country – but there are some really good ones still, and if you read the writings of Johan Westerholm on his site Ledarsidorna you´ll see what great journalism actually looks like. He is a Social Democrat but rarely in tune (or rather, on the same page) with the shenanigans that´s going on in his party (personally, I used to vote for them, but…). My guess is that 99% of all politicians and journalists reads his stuff, simply because he understands what´s going on behind the scenes and he has an eye for details that is very rare.

Also, he´s not PC, and that means that he´s a very brave man the way things are now. But that only means that his reputation will be intact ten years from now, and that´ll be pretty rare by then.

I tip my hat to Mr Westerholm.

The time has come for me to recommend a good blog again and I think you may enjoy the Killer Covers of The Week blog – it´ll certainly transport you to a better era.

Superb stuff.

Tanja Bergkvist is a wonderful blogger in Sweden, hell bent on combating and exposing the worst of what the unsuspecting people of this country are constantly bombarded with from the Gender Industry. Trust me on this, things are so bad in this country that it is way past a joke. Well, the good news is that Tanja has just written a post in English (on her blog) to explain the general situation here, basically to go with a segment on Russia Today. To understand Sweden and what we have to endure over here you should read this – it will not be time wasted.

Tanja is the voice of reason, and much beloved by people like me.
