Unlike a couple of other metal festivals that are annually arranged in Finland, Tuska and Jalometalli festivals in particular, Sauna Open Air Metal festival´s main focus has been on more traditional sounding hard rock and heavy metal bands for the last couple of years. Last year the organizers of S.O.A. managed to book such acts as Sebastian Bach, Airbourne, the Scorpions, Graham Bonnet & Joe Lynn Turner and Whitesnake to the festival, to name a few. 

This year, some of the most talked and hottest bands of today on people´s lips, shared the 2 stages at the S.O.A. festival (Amorphis, Apocalyptica, Bullet, Stratovarius, Nightwish, etc.), but on the top of them all, were the bad boys all the way from Los Angeles, USA – the one and only Mötley Crüe, whose "Crüe Fest" had also arrived to the beautiful city called Tampere, for the very first time.

2 more or less distinguished journalists from the Canadian webmagazine were also there, trying to document some of the most worth mentioned acts from that event – and here´s a little write-up that we managed to squeeze out from S.O.A. 2009. Now keep on reading, dear folks…
