Gig Reports

Cradle of Filth has been showing Europe why they are considered legends of the metal scene and killed it at the stop in Tampere, Finland where we caught their show at a packed Pakkahuone. And with the very special guests Wednesday 13 playing Murderdolls and Sick ‘n Beautiful, it was a night that many won’t forget soon!

Poisonblack returned for a couple more shows in October 2023, organized by Fullsteam Agency. We were present for the gig at Klubi in Tampere, a true celebration of the gothic metal legends they are.

German Lord of the Lost finally managed to get to Finland to play for their legions!

Celebrating the release off their latest album, Will to Power (released with Century Media Records),  Arch Enemy went out on tour selling out venues by the hand full. This can be expected when a band like Arch Enemy takes the stage with Jinjer, Tribulation and Wintersun.
