This year’s Nummirock had a fairly strong and consistent line-up with band such as Devil Driver, Epica, Rhapsody, Insomnium, Wintersun, Raised Fist, Jinjer, Shade Empire, Ensiferum and many more.

Throes of Dawn and Furciferi at Leipätehdas, Vaasa 7.4.


I had never listened to Throes of Dawn until about two weeks ago when I figured I had to check the band out since they were booked to play at Leipätehdas, a venue which happens to be located like twenty metres from the flat I am renting. I am very glad that I did, but... Continue Reading →

Insomnium, Swallow the Sun and Pressure Points at Rytmikorjaamo, Seinäjoki 14.10


Okay, so there are several reasons to why I should not write this: I wrote about Insomnium as recently as in June when they played at Provinssi in this same city.

Festival report: Saturday 25.6 at Nummirock, Kauhajoki


Midsummer is for many metalheads in Finland strongly associated with Nummirock. This year was special since the festival celebrated 30 years, which tells quite a great deal about its popularity and status. This was the third time I visited the festival with its beautiful scenery next to lake Nummijärvi. Nummirock is dedicated to quite extreme... Continue Reading →

Festival report: Saturday 20.6 at Nummirock, Kauhajoki


Nummirock is a really old school type of festival, positioned at the shore of the lake Nummijärvi, pretty much in the middle of the woods. It has been around since 1987.
