Finnish bands

Insomnium, Shear and Kuolemanlaakso - The Circus, Helsinki, 10/05/14

Insomnium launched their new album Shadows of the Dying Sun to the Helsinki audience, filling the venue with the harmonious echoes of their Finnish melodic death metal to culminate in their "best show ever". Opening for them was melancholy death-doom act Kuolemanlaakso, and the melodic power metal of Shear.

Kalmah with Shear - Nosturi, Helsinki, 30/11/13

A night filled with powerfully melodic Finnish Death Metal at Nosturi in Helsinki. Shear presented a high energy show, clearly enjoying every moment they had on stage and feeding off the energy of the crowd. Kalmah's dark melodies filled the venue, and many of the crowd lost themselves in the music.

Finnish all-girl punk rockin' fun...

I know it’s bad, but in 2012 I’m still slightly dubious about all-girl bands. I don’t know why. That’s just how it is.
