For fans of good quality metal, we have great news. Tons of great s**t added to the program for the upcoming summer.
Sweden’s prog metal geniuses of Opeth deserve their position as a constant favorite among the metal audiences. Led by Mikael Åkerfeldt, the award-winning band combining prog metal, 70’s sounds, jazz and beautiful melodies with heavy riffs has published 12 studio albums and several live albums and DVD’s – the last one of which, “Garden of the Titans”, came out last year.
Just recently Behemoth had the audience holding their breath at sold out concerts in Helsinki and Tampere. Poland’s best known extreme metal barber and his band published the acclaimed album “I Loved You at Your Darkest” last year along with quite rough music videos, as was to be expected. After touring heavily this spring, the band will bring their dramatic live show to Suvilahti.
Known for his candid and direct comments, Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes bring their mixture of hard rock and groovy punk to Helsinki! Their previously acclaimed albums will be followed by the band’s third album, “End of Suffering”, in May.
Anneke Van Giersbergen melted the hearts of quality-loving heavy metal audiences as the singer of The Gathering already back in the 90’s. The Dutch singer has since had a successful solo career and had collaborations with Devin Townsend, Anathema and of course Amorphis, to name a few. Fans of Anneke’s touching yet strong singing are in for a double treat: besides performing solo, Anneke will also share the stage with Amorphis on their “Queen of Time” special show.
In just a few years, the wild thrash metal boys of Lost Society have grown and are now young men, but they are far from slowing down – quite the contrary! After reaching the top 3 of the Finnish charts with their album “Braindead”, the quartet from Jyväskylä has gathered more experience by touring with the likes of Exodus and Children of Bodom both in Europe and in the US. Lost Society, known for their wild live performances, will have their first headlining tour this spring – the results of which can be witnessed at Tuska!
Playing shows all the way in Japan, Brymir combines symphonic elements into melodic death metal and consists of true musical masters. Having shared the stage with the likes of Insomnium and Wolfheart, the band will now publish their third album, “Wings of Fire”, in March.
