On April 20th, 2022, there was quite a collection of bands set to play at Utopia in Turku: VIRHE, SVARTA HAVET, GOATBURNER, and NERVOCHAOS all ganged up on the unsuspecting crowd for a night of blasting their ears off.
To start, VIRHE play power-violence/grind-violence, and caught us by surprise with their short and very aggressive songs. SVARTA HAVET were formed in 2018 and play dark post-hardcore, and released their debut LP last year, entitled “Jord/Vatten.”
GOATBURNER is a duo, founded in 2017, and are working on their second release. Their sound is death metal, designed for people who dare to face a “heavy and ruthless sound barrier,” and did they ever deliver on that front!
Last but certainly not least, NERVOCHAOS came to be in 1996 in – you guessed it – Brazil! With nine albums under their belt, this show was part of their current European tour and this was their first time playing in Finland. They put on a memorable show and we hope to see them back in Finland again in the future!
