Tuska Open Air Metal Festival 2013: Days 2 and 3

The weekend festivities of the second and third day of Tuska started a bit later for me, but still managed to start with a bang that resounded for the whole weekend! With a lineup a bit less intense then the first day, there was a lot of room to really observe performances and finally get that summer festival feeling. Both days featured very different genres, but as always with Tuska, there is truly something for everyone, even if that something is as simple as ice cold cider and a cool breeze on a hot day.

Stam1ina Top Finnish Album Charts

Lemi, Finland-based heavy metal quartet STAM1NA has topped the Finnish album chart with its third effort, "Raja", which came out on February 13 through Sakara Records. The CD was recorded at Purple Fly studio in the band's hometown. Production duties were handled by Janne Joutsenniemi, whose legendary band STONE was one of the STAM1NA's biggest influences. Miitri Aaltonen, who produced the first two STAM1NA albums, mixed the new CD.

Regarding the band's collaboration with Janne Joutsenniemi, STAM1NA guitarist/vocalist Antti "Hyrde" Hyyrynen previously said, "This is a match made in heaven and a big step for the band. Janne will most certainly bring his own thing to this album. Let's [put] it this way: The mustard machine is still the same but Janne changes our diapers."

Hyyrynen continued: "About the lyrical part I can say that again we search, explore and try both our and boundaries of humanity. During the last few years we have tried our limits and probably gone even beyond them."

STAM1NA was formed in 1996 and has released two albums so far: "Stam1na" (2005) and "Uudet Kymmenen Käskyä" (2006), which landed at No. 3 on the Finnish album chart and received the 2006 Emma award for "Best Metal Album".

More Tuska Open Air Details Revealed

Tuska Open Air Metal Festival has added more international and Finnish acts to the 2005 roster. The line-up is almost complete with only 1 more artist to be added for Saturday afternoon as well as the winner from the band contest at Rotonde-Festival, France, which is to be held later this spring. This year's Tuska-Festival is more international than ever, with nearly half of the artists coming from abroad. The evening clubs will most likely see some international action as well.

New additions in Finnish professionalism will be represented by Apocalyptica, whose cello metal is witnessed way too rarely on their native soil. Apocalytica just recently supported Rammstein on their European tour and appeared stateside on a few selected dates.

German precision and universal greatness is brought to you by the mighty Gamma Ray. The band last appeared on the bill at Tuska 2000 and have since built their fanbase by selling out club shows on a regular basis.

Other additions include up-and-coming death metallers Amoral, Finnish-singing Stam1na and Viikate, as well as Callisto who are about to embark on a European tour in a few weeks.

The search continues for one more, either domestic or foreign artist.

Ticket sales for Tuska 2005 start on Friday April 1st. Three-day ticketcosts 67 euro, one-day ticket 32 euro. Go to www.lippupalvelu.fi to purchase tickets.

Current Tuska 2005 line-up reads as follows: More...
