Devilstone Open Air is three days of metal, mud and beer in the picturesque countryside just outside Anykščiai in north-eastern Lithuania. Day two brought heavy hitters of the music community onstage, and a strong festival atmosphere engulfed the campsite. A little rain in the afternoon didn't slow down the festival, and just revved up the people who spun around in the moshpits. It cleared by evening for a Lithuanian debut by Orange Goblin and the incredible stagecraft of Shining.
Devilstone Open Air is three days of metal, mud and beer in the picturesque countryside just outside Anykščiai in north-eastern Lithuania. Day Three relaxed back with rock and progressive sounds on the East stage all day, but the West stage exploded with Thrash, Death and Black metal acts, finishing up with festival headliners Enslaved.
Last Monday the Bataclan in Paris was rocked by the travelling Folk Metal Festival Heidenfest 2013. On the line-up were Ensiferum, Turisas, Equilibrium, SuidAkrA and Frosttide.
The first night of Metalheim IV stormed forth with a night of quality metal from the Nordic region. Held at Nosturi in Helsinki, the evening was headlined by Thyrfing and Einherjer, with notable tributes made to Quorthon (Bathory). Other notable performances of the night included local band Shear, headlined by the talented Alexa Leroux, and the new solo project of Tuomas Saukkonen, Wolfheart.

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.
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.
A haunting combination of folk, electronica and funeral-doom, Kauan's Pirut is best listened to as one continuous song.
