Today, they’re starting their extensive “Shake Your City” European tour at a sold out Tavastia in Helsinki, but earlier this year, to celebrate the release of their new album ‘Electric Sounds’, the Canadian rockers of Danko Jones dropped by in Helsinki. For a private rock party where only a select amount of fans and music professionals had a great time seeing them in a small club stage setting!

Drowning Pool, Salive, Adelitas Way and Any Given Sin are touring the US with “The SNAFU tour” and we got to enjoy a great night of American metal/rock in Fort Wayne, Indiana!

There was “Nothing to Gein” the first Friday of August in Ohio except metal bands that absolutely melted our faces off, with the Mudvayne “Psychotherapy Sessions” tour dropping by with support from Coal Chamber, GWAR, Nonpoint and Butcher Babies!

An Ice Nine Kills show is an absolute visual spectacle, and we were at one of their completely sold out shows in Finland at Vanha Ylioppilastalo in Helsinki with support from SKYND and Lansdowne!

Tuhdimmat Tahdit and Master Events brought one very hot festival to Tampere’s Ratinanniemi. It started with Verikalpa and ended with Beast in Black, but we also can’t forget about all the bands in between: Transworld Identity, Prestige, Ensiferum, Bloodred Hourglass, Dynazty, Lordi, Mors Subita, Dead by April and Diablo.


Ghost is on tour in Europe spreading their ‘Impera’ gospel, and so we went to see them in Lille, France, and Ghost does not disappoint! Support came from Spiritbox and Lucifer!

A SKILLET show is every time quite the experience! As they were touring Europe as part of their ‘Day Of Destiny Tour 2023’, we made sure we caught them at one of their stops, at LKA Longhorn in Stuttgart, Germany to be more specific. The energy was through the roof and the place got steaming hot! With support from Like A Storm and Eva Under Fire.

Fozzy is saving the world by bringing their rock ‘n’ roll to stages all around! We caught them at their sold out show at The King of Clubs in Columbus, OH where they kicked ass with the support of Seventh Day Slumber and The Nocturnal Affair!

At the end of December, we managed to catch the shows of Shereign, Dirt and of course Oceanhoarse at the second edition of Hoarsefest at On The Rocks in Helsinki!

Album Reviews

Black Stone Cherry have their eighth studio album, ‘Screamin’ At The Sky’, set for release on Friday 29th September via Mascot Records. After a rather not so hard and heavy styled album, we are happy to say that they’re back with 12 hard, heavy, blues-rock infused songs, the BSC we all fell in love with in the past!

After 14 long years The Hellacopters have finally released their new long player called ‘Eyes Of Oblivion’. It was worth the wait – a fantastic hard rock album comes your way!

Rock power trio RRRags delivers an album filled with vintage rockers that’ll get you going and dancing throughout the summer times. Good vibes on this one!

On March 6th, 2020, Blue Öyster Cult return with the remaster of their album ‘Heaven Forbid’, out via Frontiers Music!

Possibly the birth of the next big thing in “vintage rock” is to be found in Finland, check out their groovy, heavy rock now!

Roaring as lions…
