In October last year we discovered a little gem in the heart of Helsinki when we attended the doom, stoner and noise festival Blowup Vol. 4 (for our report and pictures go here and here). The impressive line-up with many great bands and artists to discover and get swept away by was massive. Luckily we don’t have to wait too long to experience something similar! Organizer and promotor Blow Up That Gramophone have another cool event for you in the works…
In March (29th and 30th to be exact) there will be a 2-day festival called “Big Riffs & Slow Tempos” at Kuudes Linja in Helsinki. They’ve released already a handful of names earlier and today they added 2 more artists to the list:
The UK noise rock group Ramleh, hailed as one of the most influential and groundbreaking underground groups of the last 25 years, will be playing their first every show on Finnish grounds. And on top of that the melancholic and gloomy Finnish black metal band Kuilu will grace the stage with their recently released full-length debut.
The earlier unveiled names are the Finnish experimental and chaotic death metallers Oksennus and psychedelic/progressive rockers of Kaleidobolt, Swedish industrial & dark ambient artist Brighter Death Now and the experimental US hip hop outfit dälek to top it off! Exciting times are ahead of us!
