Welcome to South Park 2016. It’s a middle sized open air festival in Tampere. This festival was built upon the ruins of Sauna Open Air Metal Festival which was between 2004 and 2013. South Park has now been organized for the third time, and there has been a good amount of big heavy metal acts like Def Leppard, Helloween, Accept, and this year the main acts were Slayer, Bullet For My Valentine, Soilwork and Powerwolf. Also current heavy and rock acts from Finland were the big part of this year’s line up. The name South Park means ”eteläpuisto” in Finnish, and it fits well because the place where the festival takes it’s place is called Eteläpuisto. It’s a little park very near to the lake. But even if the framework is very good, and line-up looks very good also, it doesn’t guarantee the nice and warmly festival experience: We are now in Finland where the weather conditions even in summer are a little tricky.

The band’s drummer Hessu Maxx said before the album was released that InVader is the band’s boldest and most versatile album so far. And it seems like this particular record has also received good positive feedback in the media. I have spent much time with Reckless Love’s material before the show in Seinäjoki, and overall the new album may even be better than their  album Spirit from 2013. It is a very good and integrated rock album with only a couple of filler songs. Luckily the biggest part of the setlist that night was piled up with the songs from the InVader album – so let’s go for the blasting rock’n’roll night!
