Support your local Finnish band happens to be one of our favorite mottos around here. In order to do so, we have taken a closer look at the brand new and first release of Junktone.

Meet Junktone, established in 2016 in Tampere. Put 5 experienced players together in a band who bring a mixture of metal, nineties Seattle grunge, rock and even punk, now what do you get? A new EP that they have called Junkrock, which is supposed to bring us a variety of unique combinations of stoner riffs and grunge melodies.

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.
