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.

Review: Red Moon Architect – Return of the Black Butterflies

 

The town of Kouvola is often referred to as the “largest lighted cemetery” in Finland. Finland, which also happens to be seen as cold and where coldheartedness rules over people. While keeping in mind these stereotypes it seems like it’s the perfect ground for funeral doom metal bands. The Finnish funeral doom metal band Red Moon Architect is one of those bands who came from there. The band released their third album “Return of the Black Butterflies” in May. The name of the album subtly refers to one of the tracks on their debut album called “Black Butterflies”.

28-02-2017 Crimson Sun & Epica @ Tavastia, Helsinki

It was yet one of those ordinary grey, rainy Tuesday evenings in February. Usually nothing much happens and there’s nothing much to expect. The only difference with the ordinary, was that Crimson Sun & Epica were both scheduled for Tavastia, Helsinki. Reason the more to check both female-fronted metal bands out and hope for the night to be changed into something extraordinary.
