W.A.S.P., the legenday hard rock band from Los Angeles, USA. On tour with a new album called Gotgatha and in Finland with four concerts. Heavy metal week is going on in Finland and nothing could be better… or could it? Yes, it could, let me say. The fact is W.A.S.P. released a new album, which was the first one in six years and that was the longest gap between W.A.S.P.-records. And the band launched a European tour and of course there were a few shows in Finland once again: W.A.S.P. has had concerts in Finland since 1985 and I think they will continue to do shows here until the band quits for good. Last show before this tour was in the summer in Lokalahti’s Karjarock Festival. Turku (Finnish town) is a second home to Doug Blair (because of the Turku Rock Academy School), so it’s not a big surprise that they have so many concerts here. But anyway, it’s very cool, that the band feels very comfortable here in Finland and in Seinäjoki many people came to see this band once again in the middle of the week. The crowd had fun, except I didn’t: maybe two words, which describes my feelings from the gig, would be ”boring” and ”routine”. Of course there were also good things from the evening, but unfortunately that wasn’t enough. Let’s see how I felt about this show.

Nummirock is a midsummer metal festival in Kauhajoki in Western Finland. It’s about 170km northwest from Tampere and 60km southwest from Seinäjoki. Basically it’s in middle of nowhere. It’s a festival that has become a real tradition for many hardcore camping metalheads, and I think I understand why. Campsites are huge and loaded with tents, cars, huts and of course metalheads, some of them (well actually most of them) being drunk. There’s a great atmosphere among the campers and nothing can ruin the party. And when I say “nothing”, I really mean it. Not even a temperature below 0˚ or rain of hailstones. This is what I’d call a great spirit of heavy metal. Continue reading FESTIVAL REVIEW: Nummirock, Kauhajoki Finland 19. – 21.6.2014

If I was a great heavy metal chef and I could take ingredients of different bands and mix them together to come up with delicious heavy metal dishes then Free Fall would be one of my main dishes.  When you take a big portion of Bon Scott AC/DC, a sprinkle of Led Zeppelin, just a pinch of Blackie Lawless from W.A.S.P. and a whole lot of salty 70’s hard rock, you get served up Free Fall.
