Vad sägs om lite otippad Bergmanspotting i hårdrocksvärlden? I husorganet Classic Rock Magazine finner jag en ball kommentar av Maidengitarristen Janick Gers om gruppens skiva Dance of Death från 2003:
I loved the feel of this album. Everything about it felt big. And the song Dance Of Death is one that I’m really proud of. It was based on the Ingmar Bergman movie, The Seventh Seal.
I saw it when I was a kid and just loved it. It’s about someone looking for hope in a world that’s devastated. And at the end of the movie there is this dance of death. The funny thing is, I was on the tube not long after we’d written it, and I saw this huge poster of The Seventh Seal. Such a weird coincidence.
Up the Ingmars!
