Kvelertak is continuing to take Europe by storm on their “Krøterveg Te Helvete Tour” presenting their latest work, in the company of Cancer Bats as support. We were there at the Backstage venue in Munich, Germany last week!

The kings of weed metal Bongzilla brought the smoke with them to a packed house at Kuudes Linja in Helsinki, Finland and delivered their usual absolutely crushing wall of sound to a highly anticipating crowd. Support came from the Finnish black metal outfit Frigid Winter.

The coalition of the Norwegian stoner punks of Bokassa and Greek stoner rockers of Planet of Zeus rocked the house seriously. On The Rocks Helsinki was the place to be and those who weren’t there missed out on some good fun!
