Oulun festariylpeydellä, Qstockilla, on viime vuosina homma sujunut hyvin: ”Sold-out” -kylttiä on näytetty muutamaan otteeseen porteilla ja tämä vuosi jatkoi samaa linjaa 32000 ihmisen saattelemana. Hyvällä säällä varustettujen kahden päivän aikana saatiin nauttia laaja kirjo monen musiikkityylin esiintyjistä: Children Of Bodom, Cheek, Amorphis, Sanni, Opeth, ja tietysti The Prodigy sinetöiden neljännentoista Qstockin.

I’ve got to give this band credit for the band name alone. It’s a very thought provoking name and when you see it you’ve got all sorts of expectations if it’s a first time discovery like mine. Well it’s safe to say that those expectations are fairly realistic as it is a great blend of the heavy and the gentle. Continue reading Music Review Moonspell CD: Extinct
