Bonded By Metal

Impaled Nazarene and Ominous - PRKL Club, Helsinki, 31/05/14

Impaled Nazarene are credited as one of the pioneers of the Finnish Black Metal scene, and have never been far from controversy in their 24 years as a band. Last Saturday they brought their merciless black metal, with that contagious hint of grinding punk, to the PRKL club in Helsinki. Opening for them was the blackened death/thrash assault of fellow Finns, Ominous.

Satan with Ranger @ PRKL Club (Helsinki, FI), 5 Apr 2014

After over thirty years of gigs, Newcastle's Satan finally made it to Finland to a reception they never expected. The downstairs of the inner-Helsinki PRKL bar was packed with fans full of sheer violent passion in finally seeing Satan play live in their hometown.

Since 1979, Satan have been bringing their NWOBHM sound to the masses.
