As the crowd prepared for Satan to enter the stage at PRKL on Friday night, I stood at the front of the crowd armed with my camera to snap a few shots and politely leave the mosh-pit. Though the energetic crowd-surfers for opening local speed-metallers Ranger were a preview, that was nothing compared to the forward push of the sweaty mass of vest-clad metalheads fist-pumping and screaming for their NWOBHM heroes on the Helsinki stage.
Watain brought their occult ritual to Helsinki last January, joined by fellow Swedes In Solitude. We were there to try to catch some of the heady black metal in pictures.
Chainmail, warpaint and drinking horns were once again the business of the evening in Helsinki as Ensiferum, Turisas and Thaurorod shared the stage on Easter Sunday. A passionate crowd of local fans and visitors from all over Europe drank, moshed and raised their fists to an evening of anthemic metal.
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.

We called through to Shai Hulud's guitarist and songwriter, Matt Fox, ahead of their recent appearances at Soundwave 2013, to drill down and find out more about the new album and what goes into making their sound uniquely Shai Hulud.
"Thanks for not fucking forgetting about us!" Dave King and Flogging Molly give Brisbane something to remember at their Tuesday night Sidewave.
With their fourteenth studio album released in late January, Helloween remain one of the founding forces behind power metal almost thirty years into their career. Drummer since 2005, Dani Löble sat down with us in the abandoned business centre on board 70000tons of Metal to give an insight into their impact on the genre.
