Finland is very well known for delivering quality metal bands and having the most metal bands per capita in the world. You can very well call the country the “heavy metal capital of the world”. There are a bunch very established bands that have millions of fans, but luckily heavy metal is very much alive and has new promising outfits popping out of the foil like crazy. One of those of late you could say are frontrunners of the NWOFHM (New Wave Of Finnish Heavy Metal)… meet OCEANHOARSE!
Being quite on a roll with a lot of people interested in what they have to offer, Oceanhoarse decided to end the year with a bang and are coming with their own festival: HOARSEFEST!
Joonas and Jyri told us that you can expect the best of the up-and-coming local NWOFHM scene and with 5 bands, an all-stars show, 4 clinics by big talents in the Finnish music scene and even a chance to win a guitar, there is no reason to not be there!
Check out what they are looking forward to the most at the fest and what more they had to say right here:
