I was going to go to this, but to be honest I think Lustdriven is a weak album, and I really didn't want to sit through Metsatoll between Celesty and Kiuas.
Plus, if I'd seen them with Ilja (which I have before), then found out Asim Searah was singing for them the day after I saw them, I'd have been annoyed. As it is, at least I didn't miss out on seeing Searah by a day.
Ilja will play one more show, in Helsinki, in January.
