Steelfest has carved its immortal marks onto the metal festival map in Finland and managed to pull through these hard times whereas other festivals have collapsed. An extremely strong line-up offered killer bands from the front lines of the death/black metal genre. Even though the festival is kind of small, it has an intimate feel passionate towards extreme metal. Metal bangers have also found the festival as the fest was completely sold out. Over 3000 maniacs visited the fest during the weekend, enjoying the metal at its best. Hail! The Metal-Rules.com team spent the whole weekend at Steelfest, witnessing killer bands…

Here we are again… The mighty Jalometalli Open Air Metal festival strikes back once again with a killer line-up to maintain its metallic lofty status on the Finnish festival map. The festival is known for relying on an old school metal approach offering traditional metal to extreme metal. The festival offered a great deal of bands from the classic metal to the extreme black metal. The festival had also paid attention to young rising and local bands which had been placed to play at the small third sage. That was unique and thankfully most of the bands sounded killer. The Metal Rules team hit the ground of Oulu to testify several absolutely killer bands. The whole Jalometalli as a festival is so unique and one of kind that anyone reading this article should take a glance at the offering of the festival. Here is a brief article on the fest.

SWEDENROCK 2011

August 1st, 2011

swedenrock2011.jpg

 

Let Me Hear You Scream Sweden Rockkkk.Well the annual roadtrip to Swedenrock by the Finnish Metal Rules.com 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!!!

NIFELHEIM TO PLAY AT SWEDEN ROCK 2011

March 18th, 2011

NIFELHEIM

NIFELHEIM

That Sweden is one the most important countries when it comes to black metal should be well known for most heavy metal-connaiseurs – but if you’ve missed out on this fact Nifelheim, formed in the small town of Dals Långed in 1990, are as good as evidence as it can get. The band’s original take on the genre gets its inspiration both from classic heavy metal as well as from old school black metal-acts such as Bathory, Tormentor and Master’s Hammer. They’ve released four albums, with “Envoy of Lucifer” from 2007 being the latest. Nifelheim visited us in 2004 and have since been one of the most requested re-runs of their genre. With an odd, original sense of melody, uncomprising, raw vocals and unusally catchy songs considering their style their gig well most definitely be a highlight at this years festival for any fan of black metal.

Jalometalli 2009

October 20th, 2009

The Jalometalli Open Air Metal festival has gained its status as well as place on the Finnish festival map. Although there are plenty of metal oriented festivals arranged all around in Finland, the Jalometalli festival has found its own style and approach in the metal festival offering in Finland. It doesn’t rely on the current hot names on the market like Volbeat and so on, instead the festival offers a more interesting line-up mostly consisting of old school thrash metal and of course death and black metal by having bands which have either never or rarely visited Finland. Especially several 80s thrash metal legends such as Whiplash, Agent Steel have never been seen on the soil of Finland. Now it is about time. Therefore the Metal-Rules.com team made a real assault at Jalometalli by witnessing plenty of killer bands and seeing the general atmosphere and here is the result.

Watain / Nifelheim : Helsinki 2008

November 21st, 2008

 

INFERNALTOUROFDESTRUCTION2008.jpg

This sort of line-up is without any doubts a dream come true for any black/death metal maniac. Two leading extreme metal bands out of Sweden conquering Finland had been anticipated for a while. Before these Swedes led the Finns into the abyss of damnation, both Spearhead and Impiety welcomed the audience to the limbo.
