Tuska Open Air 2011 – Suvilahti Helsinki Finland

August 27th, 2011


Tuska Open Air 2011

Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland

The Tuska Open Air Festival has become one kind of institution amongst all metal festivals in Europe. Tuska was previously arranged in the heart of Helsinki in the central park Kaisaniemi during the past 10 years. The park underwent construction to have a better environment and other mandatory improvements. The organization of Tuska didn’t have a choice but to find and switch the whole festival to a new area. This new area is still located in Helsinki, but only a few kilometers away, to a place called Suvilahti. Having this area was definitely a big part of the whole idea and concept of Tuska. The Kaisaniemi park brought an intimate picnic and park feeling with the grass and trees. Whereas Suvilahti was more like an industrial environment with the burning and redhot asphalt under the feet.

Another thing forcing Tuska to make a change was the date. Originally the festival was supposed to be in the beginning of July, but another big more international based festival took over the date and Tuska was postponed until three weeks later. Well at least some people got pissed off at the changed date. Obviously a few band negotiations needed to start all over. Hopefully Tuska will return back to the original date. However, the line-up looked amazing after all. Morbid Angel and Amon Amarth were headliners, so was Devin Townsend once again. Cult metal bands like Hell, Bulldozer and then something type of stuff such as Jex Thoth, Church Of Misery. The festival was an utter success although the event wasn’t sold out. All in all 28000 people visited Tuska during three days. was present to check out a lot of bands and check out the new Tuska area.

Let Me Hear You Scream Sweden Rockkkk.Well the annual roadtrip to Swedenrock by the Finnish Metal team is already into it’s 11th year!  The  2011 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock in the line-up. Over 70 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide and the ticket price had risen a little bit. ver these 11 years of coverage, 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 once again showed positive and negative aspects like in 2010. It either rained or was windy with a little sunshine. 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… Enjoy or die!!!

Roadburn – Tillburg Holland

May 27th, 2011





013 and Mid Theatre

The 12th – 15th of April

Article and pics by Arto Lehtinen

Once again it is April and time to return to the Roadburn festival in Tillburg, Holland. The line-up for  2011 looked absolutely awesome in every aspect.  A few of the bands who were forced to cancel their appearance last year had been re-booked (i.e. Candlemass and Evoken). Roadburn offered a nice deal of Finnish bands as well such as Hooded Menace. It was the sonic masters Sunn O))) who had been chosen to guide and be a curator of the Roadburn 2011. The members of Sunn O))) which have plenty of other bands picked up bands fitting to their taste and the concept of the Roadburn festival. Roadburn could be bigger and larger, but due to the cult status and the will of the organization of the fest, it will remain as intimate as it has been since the beginning. got an excellent privilege of visiting the Roadburn festival for the second time in a row to see plenty of killer bands, smell the taste of weed with awesome people, and be a part of an awesome festival atmosphere.

The 18 – 19th of February 2011

Helsinki, Finland

The annual Finnish Metal Expo was arranged in the old ancient Cable Factory in the heart of Helsinki. Even though the winter wind was blowing in cold from the open sea, thousands of metalheads were crawling to the FME event. Once again the roster of the FME event offered plenty of interesting names. The purpose of the event is to offer a good chance for young and talented Finnish bands to perform in front of a critical metal audience. Besides new talented bands, known and classic names were at present at FME. The squad was, as usual, at the annual Finnish Metal Expo to feel what’s up in the air of the metal world.
