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. With coffee and Jaloviina, Steelfest woke the summer festival season and hauled it kicking and screaming back into the mosh pit for another year. Day Two was headlined by Primordial (IRL), Vader (POL) and Necrophobic (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.

Two days after Steelfest Open Air 2014 wrapped, I still had some friends suffering valiantly from hangovers.

Truth Corroded's Jason North: "There is no better feeling than yelling SLAYER!!!! as loud as possible"...

When it comes to thrash, Jason North knows his onions, so we thought we'd better give him the chance to share his thoughts on the subject...

Truth Corroded have, over the last few years, forged a reputation for themselves as one of Australia's leading thrash outfits, so we really couldn't not involve them in our Metal Thrashing May acti
