Hoarsefest (On The Rocks, Helsinki) – 28/12/2019

What do you do as a band when everyone within the team seems to be overflowing with energy? Why not start your own festival to finish an already full and exciting year with a big bang? That’s what Oceanhoarse seemed to go for with Hoarsefest. A one-night festival that includes five bands that represent the NWOFHM (New Wave Of Finnish Heavy Metal) as good as possible, four clinics by some of the top musicians within the local scene, giving away a damn guitar, and on top of that throw in a kick-ass all star jam…

With pics of Thy Row, Wake Up Frankie, Dirt, I Revolt, Oceanhoarse and the All Star Jam featuring Oceanhoarse, members of every band of the night and almost every clinic participant (click on the pictures to see more):

And pics from the clinics with Asim Searah (Wintersun, Damnation Plan), Juhani Mac Flinck (Misterer, Dead Shape Figure), Sara Strömmer (Fear of Domination) and Antti Wirman (Warmen):
