Gig Reports


Seeing Wardruna live is quite the experience wherever you catch them. But for our reporter, their show at the Cirque Royal in Brussels was simply exceptional, one of those performances you don’t shake off fast… If you missed it, you have another shot at it when they play at Rock Werchter 2023 this Summer!


Heilung came, saw and conquered the sold out Jäähalli in Helsinki at the end of October, yet another absolutely magical show by a phenomenon in the music scene. And their guests Eivør and Lili Refrain were the perfect people to warm an already excited crowd up even more!


A couple of months ago, the French vikings of Skáld came to put a spell on everyone that showed up at Ääniwalli with their Nordic folk and turned the night into one to remember. Support came from the hurdy-gurdy maestro Guilhem Desq, an event by All Things Live Finland.


Going to a Heilung show is a bit like going to a therapy session. Except the session actually helps.


A cold evening in February, we were taken on a magical journey with the acoustic set of Myrkur!
