REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

Trondheim Rock is annual rock event held, like the name suggests, in Trondheim, Norway. The festival has a tradition of having high quality performers outside of the mainstream and ongoing trends. The history of Trondheim Rock includes such artists as Def Leppard, Jon Lord, Kamelot, Whitesnake, Gary Moore, and Glenn Hughes amongst many others. This year’s edition of the event included three bands: re-united the Darkness, legendary U.S hard rockers Twisted Sister and Norwegian band TNT who now celebrate their 30th anniversary in their original hometown.

Canadian band Helix was headlining the event. It’s been 26 years since their last visit so it was finally about time to see them again here. Although Norwegian TNT and Swedish Treat are located in our neighbor countries, still, neither of them played in Finland until now. Originally it was announced that German band Bonfire was also on the bill but for some reason or another they cancelled and were now replaced by local act called Ghost Machinery.
