Now that the days are getting longer and the sun reigns over Finland, it’s time again to steep ourselves in darkness to balance things out. Steelfest is here again, a highlight in the underground metal scene that brings both fans and bands from all over the world together for 2 days. The line-up is as strong as ever with this year surprisingly many death metal bands for a festival known as a “black metal festival”, the weather promises us a dusty and thirsty weekend and the beer is cold… I hope you’re ready for this.
After a really good first day, the second day promised to shape up to be even better. More sun, more people (since this day had the sign “sold out” at the door) and more diversity in the music with …And Oceans, Totalselfhatred, Grave Miasma, Gaahls Wyrd, Deiphago, Morgal, Délétère, Aeternus, Kroda, Einherjer, Naglfar, Asphyx, Odium, Vital Remains, Nargaroth, Mgła and Marduk. Here are the pics:
