Odin on Trance
Article in PDF
My name is Viking and my God is Odin, the God of Wisdom. My father was a painter (artist) and alcoholic and my mother a cleaner and an alcoholic. I was sent to a foster home when I was four years old. And from this age till I reached 17 years I lived in many foster homes. When I was lonely and I cried I always telephoned my mother but she couldn’t help me, she was too far away. I liked school as I had made many friends. Geography, mathematics and carpentry were my favorite subjects. But this didn’t last long, I was chucked out of school and it was then that I began to tread the path of a music lover. KISS, AC/DC, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Front 242, Steve Vaughan, George Thorogood, Eric Clapton, CCR, Steppenwolf, Doors etc. led me into another world. Then Trance came along with Asterix (Israeli Avi Shmailov) a Psychedelic trance DJ who also produces Full On Psychedelic Trance; The Israeli Trance band, Astral Projection; and Sound Kita. Trance saved me. It gave me a whole new meaning to life. From a violent kid I grew into a person who was at peace with himself and his surroundings, not completely but I am on the way.
