Finnish Death Metal

Steelfest Open Air - Day Two, May 17th, Hyvinkää, Finland

Steelfest Open Air 2014 dragged it's hungover crowd out of bed for a second day of black, thrash and death metal in Hyvinkää, Finland.

Day Two was headlined by Primordial (IRL), Vader (POL) and Necrophobic (SWE)

Steelfest Open Air - Day One, May 16th, Hyvinkää, Finland

Steelfest Open Air 2014 launched with a barrage of black, thrash and death metal in Hyvinkää, Finland.

Day One was headlined by Inquisition (USA), Deströyer 666 (AUS/NED) and Nifelheim (SWE)

Steelfest Open Air, Hyvinkää, 16/05/14-17/05/14

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.

Magenta Harvest, Ceaseless Torment & Enthring, PRKL Club, Helsinki, 04/04/14

Friday night calls for beers, and last Friday night delivered that with a good dose of local Helsinki metal at the PRKL club in Helsinki. Headlining was Magenta Harvest, with Ceaseless Torment and Enthring. The Finns may have long dark winters, but it makes for solid tunes.

Finland is not a country short on well-known metal acts, but sometimes you don’t need the big headliners to have a good night out.
