Swedenrock 2015 – Sölvesborg Sweden

July 11th, 2015


Sweden Rock 2015


The Finnish commando team made their annual road trip to Sweden Rock. has covered Sweden Rock since 2001. The  2015 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Over 70 bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees during the four day festival. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years always being sold out. This year wasn’t an exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide. It has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article of several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The  weather was tremendous, despite being quite windy and cold on the opening day. But we were there for bands, not for having some beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Rock on!

One of the most influential names on the Swedish metal scene is Gothenburg’s Evergrey. The band debuted in 1998 and their melodic, dark, political and technical metal increased its fanbase with every new release. Albums like “In Search of Truth” (2001), “Recreation Day” (2003) and “Monday Morning Apocalypse” (2006) are all modern metal classics. In May 2010, fans were shocked to find out that Evergrey had lost three of their five members. Obviously, the band’s future looked bleak. Thankfully, singer/guitarist/band leader Tom S Englund and keyboard player Rikard Zander held their ground. Another strong line-up has made another strong album, called “Glorious Collision”. Evergrey are back with a vengeance, making their return to SRF an event to look forward to for any and all metal fans.

Evergrey, NightInGale : Helsinki Nosturi 2008

March 29th, 2008





Nosturi Helsinki

The 21st of March 2008

Having a metal gig before the easter break with two Swedish metal names, NightInGale and Evergrey, appeared to be both interesting and temptating because of the line-up. Both bands definitely enjoy a more true fan based following in Finland. Above all, NightInGale definitely draws some expected interest from the progessive genre, but of course Evergrey has the fan-legion of their own.

It goes without saying that Evergrey are a unique band. Having formed in Sweden in 1996, the band has fascinated listeners with exceptional studio albums and an equally captivating stage show. The band is currently readying themselves for the release of their new album which should be in the hands of fans before Christmas. I had the opportunity to speak to vocalist/guitarist Tom S. Englund and he filled me in on a few things about the band’s songwriting process as well as eagerly awaited new album.

Tuska Open Air Metal Festival 2005 – Helsinki Finland

August 28th, 2005

The Central Park Of Kaisaniemi ? Helsinki ? Finland
15th ? 17th of July 2005

Pics and reviews by team Finland

What happens in the middle of July in the central park of the summer city of Helsinki every year? Well, what a easy question, the annual Tuska Open Air Metal festival takes place every year at that time. It pulls in over 33.000 metal hearts of all ages and all kinds of persons to spend an unforgettable metallic feast in the heart of Helsinki. As it is said The Gods made heavy metal which has turned out be nothing but right in every aspect as the weather was extremely warm and hot during the whole weekend apart from a few darker clouds having gathered around the area when Dimmu Borgir stepped on the stage and in general the atmosphere was peaceful and bigger problems managed to be avoided, thanks to the common metal spirit of the Finnish die hard metal freaks.

The bill of 2005 didn?t offer any offer so-called any big selling names like Nightwish being one of the headlining acts at Tuska last year, but instead a variety of different metal genres were at present ranging from a hyper-blasting grindcore to a more melancholic Finnish mainstream rock. Having a large range of metal proves Tuska is not limited to one certain metal category as everyone had something to feel, taste and see during the three long days.

The Tuska Open Air festival has reached and gained a lot of positive attention amongst the metal people around the world. There were people having arrived from Russia, Estonia, Sweden, all around Europe and even from some Far East countries. Despite not having a big name, the metal festival was totally sold out and even a few hundred leftover tickets for Friday were sold after all.

As usual it has turned out to be an annual mandatory tradition for having an article of the Tuska festival in Metal-Rules.Com, therefore the Finnish Metal-Rules.Com pain squad spent the whole weekend testifying several acts in action and tried to feel the spirit of Heavy Metal and enjoy the pleasure of the flesh as well during the three insane long days in the beautiful central park of Kaisaniemi and in the heart of Helsinki with several friends as well as everlasting enemies. Enjoy?
