Event Reviews

Moonsorrow have come from a garage in Pukinmäki, to a worldwide fan base and even an Australian tour. They were one of the Finnish Folk bands that built up their country's reputation. They're even in a museum in Hungary. But they hadn't played a home crowd in two years when they headed back to the Virgin Oil Co in Helsinki.
Death metal comes alive at the Metro...
Peerless.
A characteristically cold Canberra Friday night warmed by the power of metal...
I'll always remember the night Metallica tor Glastonbury a new one...
Wow! Just Fucking Wow!!
Well, that was fucking awesome...
"Tonight, Matthew, I'm going to be Trent Reznor..."
Sonisphere was a day of A-list metal acts on the beach, and the locals didn't let the gloomy rain spoil their fun. Metallica played a By Request set to finish off a day of metal with fellow Big Four thrashers Slayer. Also on the bill were Danzig, Mastodon, Ghost and Gojira.
Steelfest Open-Air opens up the summer festival season in Finland with a full aural assault. It's two days of live metal, drinking and catching up with friends for a festival that's big enough to have great headlining bands, but small enough not to need a map to get around.
