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.

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.
If you’re in the need for some old-school styled thrash with shredding solos, solid drum fills and a clean production, I’ve probably got just what you need here.
Helsinki raised its drinking horns and pumped its fists to a rousing night of folk, battle and symphonic power metal on Easter Sunday. Long time friends Ensiferum and Turisas joined forces with locals Thaurorod to deliver a night of tribute to swords, beer, historical battles, fantastical journeys and leather skirts... erm.. kilts.
