AVANTASIA: Bruce Kulick on new album!

November 7th, 2015

He‘s become part of rock history as the lead guitarist of KISS, MICHAEL BOLTON, MEAT LOAF and GRAND FUNK RAILROAD. And like a bat out of hell, he was back in the studio to record some lead guitars for the newAVANTASIA album. Guitar legend, solo artist and Tobi‘s dear friend Bruce Kulick! AVANTASIA‘s new album Ghostlights will be released on January, 29th 2016 via Nuclear Blast Records.

“I remember I was eleven years old when I had a KISS Crazy Nights poster on the wall”, commented Tobi. “20 years later Bruce asked me to co-write and lay down vocals for a song on his solo album BKIII (highly recommended to check out), which was a great honor for me. Bruce is a great guy, a pro and an outstanding guitar player, he comes from a different background than me, which makes it even more exciting to have him on theGhostlights album (out January 2016 via Nuclear Blast).”

NIGHTWISH: Live at Ice Hall, Helsinki 2012

March 15th, 2012



10’TH of MARCH, 2012


Symphonic metal quintet Nightwish, the most successful Finnish band abroad at the moment, played a show in front of over 7000 people in Helsinki’s Old Ice Hall. The show was a part of the bands six day Finland tour which was a great hit when all shows were completely sold out. It seems that Nightwish is now having the time of their career although their future was at stake following former vocalist Tarja Turunen’s departure in 2005. Swedish vocalist, Anette Olzon, was chosen to replace Tarja in 2007 the band’s latest two albums DARK PASSION PLAY and IMAGINAERUM have received both critical and commercial success across the globe.

Tarot – Marco Hietala

August 26th, 2006

TAROT –  Marco Hietala

Interview & live pictures by Luxi Lahtinen

Legendary Finnish Heavy Metal dinosaurs Tarot are currently busy with the recordings of their new, and as yet untitled 7th studio album that should see its release date sometime by the end of the year. Since the band’s previous album SUFFER OUR PLEASURES, which was released on Spinefarm Records in 2003, two noteworthy things have happened in the Tarot -camp. First off, after the S.O.P. album the band left Spinefarm Records and signed to a smaller, independent Finnish label King Foo Entertainment. Secondly, in early 2006, Tarot made an official announcement that they have added a new guy to their line-up for the 2nd vocals. This ‘old-new’ member is Tommi ‘Tuple’ Salminen who has actually had a strong involvement with the band since 1995 with his roles being both as a roadie and as backing vocalist in the band for more than 10 years.

We met Tarot’s always friendly vocalist and bassist Marco Hietala on a sunny evening in Tampere 25th of May 2006, just a few hours before the band’s gig at the University House that same night. We talked about the previously mentioned matters and about much more.
