Nem Agency’s Melancholy Mass Festival made Finland’s dark winter nights just a bit better by bringing us Septicflesh, …And Oceans, Vorna, Assemble The Chariots and Voidfallen on the stage in Tampere and Helsinki.

Last month, Circuit Breaker Bookings with All Out Productions brought grindcore juggernauts Full Of Hell all the way from US to a fully sold out On The Rocks. And with supporting acts Kuvotus and Dome Runner, this was by far one of the most intense nights we have witnessed of late. A night full of blood, sweat and broken glass, with constant moshpits and stagediving!

Polish metal icons BEHEMOTH! are roaming through Europe with their ‘Deathless Summer Tour 2023’ and struck down at Substage in Karlsruhe, Germany with the support of Hypocrisy and SpiritWorld. A gorgeous night of some of the best metal the world has to offer right now, and extreme temperatures despite no pyro being used.

The French band Aephanemer dropped by On The Rocks in Helsinki to turn the heat up and make a pretty much crammed venue go wild to their symphonic/melodic death metal tunes! Support came from locals Numento.

One from the archives… back in October we attended to the “Come To Latin America” showcase where competition winner Where’s My Bible and one of the runner ups Luna Kills brought us a night of some good live music at On The Rocks in Helsinki, showing yet again what kind of goodies Finland has to offer musically!

Gaahls Wyrd is going from city to city in Europe, spreading their dark tunes with the support of their label mates Gaerea and at the stop at the Backstage in Munich Winterfylleth!
