GRASPOP METAL MEETING 2011

Friday 24 June – Sunday 26 June 2011

After one too many overcrowded festivals *cough*Wacken*cough* Ray and I keep a lookout for small or medium sized festivals to combine with sightseeing holidays, preferably in countries not yet travelled. So when the lineup for Graspop Metal Meeting 2011 was announced, we had our next destination.

Hell is empty because all

QStock Festival 2009, Oulu Finland

October 26th, 2009

Qstocklogo2009.jpg

24 & 25 July 2009

Regulars of my reports will remember me as a dedicated Wacken Open Air fan who loves the atmosphere, the metal friends I have made, the diversity of bands performing and the whole experience of ‘Metal Mecca’. Over the years I have been able to cope with the discomforts of survival style camping and weather extremes, but last year I broke off my love affair when Wacken reached record crowd numbers making it mostly impossible to see what was happening on stage clearly without the help of screens and time consuming to move from one stage to another. The introduction of an outdoor movie theatre outside the festival area to cope with the increased crowd was a joke.

The thought of spending another three expensive days carrying around six kilograms worth of camera equipment, writing notes and trying to take photos of bands I couldn’t see anyway had me vowing not to return to Wacken for the 20th anniversary.

Being an obsessive compulsive list writer, I started compiling a calendar of European metal festivals when I returned to Australia and as line-ups were announced this year I started sorting through the festivals with either my favourite bands or bands on my live wish list. As it turned out, this year was mostly about seeing bands on my live wish list and those bands were playing Finnish festivals–perfect. I was traveling alone this year so I was happy that I was going to a country where I feel 100% safe and at home even though the language is quite beyond this tri-lingual girl.

I was on the train to Oulu a couple of days after flying into Helsinki. The 5-hour trip was made enjoyable by picturesque Finland. There’s isn’t a part of this country that isn’t a shade of green and coming from Australia it was a nice change to the shades of browns and reds associated with our landscape. For most of the journey I had my face pressed hoping for my first glimpse of the local fauna on this trip–the roadkill squirrel outside my Helsinki hostel didn’t count.

Nightwish / Pain – The Astoria, London

March 29th, 2008

Nightwish

and Pain

n18x.JPG

The Astoria, London

26th March 2008

Live pics by Asif Salam and HannTu

Review by HannTu


It’s a pretty weird pairing – the immensely popular, symphonic goth rockers Nightwish on the same tour with oddball industrial techno metal band Pain. The man behind Pain is of course the multi-talented Peter Tagtgren; founder of Swedish melodic death band Hypocrisy, former vocalist of Bloodbath, one time drummer for Malevolent Creation, studio owner and producer extraordinaire, and a whole slew of other side projects. I was pretty damn excited to interview him, but I wasn’t going to attend the show originally, until a last minute photo pass turned up.

The commercial appeal of Nightwish is impossible to overstate. Three consecutive nights in London is extremely rare – Iron Maiden play two nights regularly, but the Unholy Alliance 2006 (Slayer, In Flames, Children of Bodom, Lamb of God) and this year’s Black Crusade Tour (Machine Head, Dragonforce, Arch Enemy) are the only two that I can think of offhand. Trivium and Annihilator might have done three London nights last year. Some people I spoke to turned up to all three nights, which is pretty impressive. The signing session in Zavvi (formerly Virgin Megastores) earlier in the day was packed with people eager to get stuff signed and close-up shots of the band. One girl even brought her guitar to be signed!

PAIN – Peter Tägtgren

October 18th, 2007

PAIN

Written by Simon Lukic
Transcribed by Mike ‘Fucking Hostile’ Holmes

Peter Tägtgren is a well known figure amongst Metal circles. From his work as a producer and his many releases with Hypocrisy, without forgetting Bloodbath, Lock Up, The Abyss and War amongst others, one can say that he is certainly a busy man. Peter’s “other” musical outlet – Pain has recently released a new disc titled PSALMS OF EXTINCTION – their fifth overall and first for Roadrunner Records. Peter and I spoke about a number of things from songwriting to producing and in between.

Sauna Open Air Metal Festival, Tampere, Finland, 9th-11th of June 2005

July 31st, 2005


Intro/outro by Luxi ?got-some-tan? Lahtinen

Relentless commentary, bullshitting, teeth-gnashing, headaches, photographing, documenting of all kinds, etc. by Luxi ?show-no-fucking-mercy? Lahtinen & Niko ?metal-up-yer-fucking-ass? Karppinen

Sauna Open Air Metal -festival was held for the 2nd time in its entire history ? and this year the organizers of the festival had succeeded to book 3 internationally big names for the festival to headline each of the 3 days; Slayer, Megadeth and Dio; not to forget the Swedish Pain either as the fourth international band for the festival. Last year was a real success for the festival organizers already, bringing approx. 6000 metal fans to the venue for one day to enjoy such bands as Lordi, Finntroll, Children of Bodom, Thunderstone, etc. ? and of course the festival?s biggest name Nightwish.

This year nearly 7000 Metal fans gathered together with each of the 3 days being nearly sold-out or completely sold-out. So from an attendance point of view there?s undoubtedly going to be a continuation of this festival for the next year at leas and that?s what all Metal fans hope for, that?s for sure.
