Hellsinki Metal Festival, the most exciting new player in the Finnish summer festival season this year, is throwing down the gauntlet with a really exciting first batch of announcements for next year’s edition!

2023 will hopefully finally bring the much delayed and plagued “State Of Unrest” tour to Europe with co-headliners Lamb of God and Kreator and just announced support Municipal Waste!

German thrash titans Kreator unleash a 3rd single from their upcoming album ‘Hate Über Alles’, out next month via Nuclear Blast Records!

The mighty thrash metallers of Kreator are back with a brand new album out in June and unleashed a first single and the title track ‘Hate Über Alles’!

Corvus Corax is entering a new era, where they add the heavy metal sound of modern ages to their medieval folk sounds! Era Metallum is here!

Lamb of God and Kreator are going to rile things up in Europe next year on their “State of Unrest” co-headline tour!

Gig Reports

Finally, after 3 years of waiting the “State of Unrest” tour transformed the magical music temple Ancienne Belgique into a pumping meltdown of metalheads. Lamb Of God was the absolute winner of moshpits and crowdsurfing while Kreator treated the German thrash fans. Municipal Waste was the excellent opening act to warm up the audience.

Lists

Another year has gone by, so it’s time again to reveal what albums have intrigued me the most last year.

2017 seems to be the year one-man projects had the biggest impact on C’kes listening habits!

A full year of incredible releases that we are trying to cram into a list of “albums of the year”, here we go again…
