Interview by Arto Lehtinen
Europe has tons of great metal festivals arranged almost in every country during the summer time. Of course bigger festivals such Graspop, SwedenRock, Wacken, FullForce, Gods Of Metal, Hellfest, MetalCamp and tons of others definitely draw bigger names and more attention. However there are a lot of smaller metal festival arranged as well. These smaller more underground oriented festivals are arranged with the passion and devotion toward the metal music despite the budgets of these festivals ain’t tremendous huge.
Jalometalli is a relative new, but damn activate and vital metal festival arranged up in the north in Oulu. The festival has grown piece by piece every year and booked more and more wellknown bands. Jalometalli definitely hit the jackpot by managing to book the legendary Bay Area thrashers Testament and of course another, but European thrash legends Kreator. However Jalometalli offers more legends such Unleashed, Candlemass and the mighty Holy Moses. What the one can wish from one metal small festival, doom metal, thrash metal, death metal. Of course Finnish metal bands play an important role giving the last shape to the line-up of the festival.
