The shit is starting to heat up over in the cold, dark northern corner of Europe we know as Finland. In the land of a thousand lakes they are gearing up to host what is looking to be a Tuska Festival to rival many that have come before. I won’t say that this lineup is flawless, but it certainly just got better.
Now with Kreator, Soilwork, Urfoust, We Butter The Bread With Butter, Black City, Torture Killer, Kuolemanlaakso, Delirium’s Order, Barbe-Q-Barbies, Ratface, Bloodred Hourglass & Dark Buddah Rising, the festival seems to be filling out with some more eclectic genres. I’m personally excited to see my friend fronting his Finnish language band Kuolemanlaakso for the first time.
Here’s what we’re looking at so far for the festivities:
KING DIAMOND, BOLT THROWER, AMORPHIS, WINTERSUN, IHSAHN, ABHORRENCE, TORTURE KILLER, LEPROUS, KUOLEMANLAAKSO, SEREMONIA, TOMBSTONED, CUT TO FIT
TESTAMENT, KREATOR, STAM1NA, SOILWORK, WE BUTTER THE BREAD WITH BUTTER, BLACK CITY, URFAUST, DARK BUDDHA RISING, DR. LIVING DEAD!, DE LIRIUM’S ORDER, BLOODRED HOURGLASS, RATFACE, BALTIMOR
NIGHTWISH, ASKING ALEXANDRIA, AMARANTHE, BARBE-Q-BARBIES, DEATH HAWKS, SANTA CRUZ, KHROMA
