REVIEW: Heroes Don’t Ask Why – Heroes Don’t Ask Why

Arising from what was then still a dark cloud in 2015, Heroes Don’t Ask Why rose to existence in Kokkola and is our next band in line for our support your local band threat. The four piece released their first self-titled album, containing six different tracks in December 2016. While they don’t want to put a label on themselves, they call their music “divorce metal, with a rock attitude”. A well sorted out combo of rock and metal.

9.6.2017 – Day 1 – RockFest @ Vehkala, Vantaa.

In the city of Vantaa, citizens experience excessive noise of planes passing by every 5 minutes on a daily basis. And if they would think that nothing would shake up the ground more in the city than departing airplanes, then they couldn’t have possibly more wrong.

For the first time ever organized in Vehkala in Vantaa, RockFest presented us a lineup one could only dream of. International big bands like Pain, Rammstein and Evanescence but also talent from around like Santa Cruz, Brother Firetribe, Stam1na, Turmion Kätilöt, Michael Monroe, Viikate and many more were set to play on the second weekend of June. It all sounded very promising. The location, quite conveniently next to the railway station, provided us a very interesting setting, as every minute some planes disturbed the view. Reason the more to discover the first edition of this festival as a magazine.
