Taking place on the first weekend of July in Suvilahti, Helsinki, Tuska festival has added a heavy batch of new names in the 2021 line up. American BARONESS plays metal for the new millennium: the four-piece combines sludge, progressive and alternative metal with melodic lines and tasty guitar licks that draw inspiration even from modern indie rock. Among the most popular and most influential folk metal bands in the world, FINNTROLL released their masterpiece, “Vredesvävd,” last year. Also flying the flag of folk metal, Finnish shamans KORPIKLAANI are on the verge of releasing their new “Jylhä” album.
The new blood in this announcement comes straight outta Helsinki: LÄHIÖBOTOX is the very embodiment of modern open-mindedness and mundane realism, blending together rap and metal smoothly and authentically. Finnish newcomers METAL DE FACTO rifle off riff after riff of traditional heavy metal goodness and KORPSESOTURI delivers old school death metal taking no prisoners. And as a cherry on the top, we present you the Tuska debut of a musical chameleon known as WALTARI, a crossover metal pioneer from Helsinki.
