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.

Deathchain Reveals New Album Details

Finland's Deathchain has set April 5th as the release date for new album, "Ritual Death Metal," which is coming courtesy of Svart Records. The following press release was also issued:

"Keeping up with the band’s tradition to include the word 'death' or 'dead' in their titles, their title of their sixth full-length alone Ritual Death Metal feels like a warning. In the wake of an already impressive 'Death Gods' three years ago, this new offering to the Ancients been recorded last summer with Swedish wünderkid Tore Stjerna in Stockholm in his world-renowned Necromorbus studio, where most famously Watain but also Ondskapt, Funeral Mist, and many others have sworn a pact with the Great Horned One.

"Guest starring on the album is one LG Petrov from Entombed, who provides vocals for the track 'Like Worms Upon The Lands.' Cover art is by Babalon Graphics, other layout work by Costin Chioreanu of Twilight13 Media.

"As eclectic as the label is, Svart Records have a strong foundation in death metal, having reissued albums by vintage acts like Abhorrence, Xysma and the resuscitated Convulse. However, Deathchain is the first contemporary death metal band operating on the label. Each member sports an impressive curriculum vitae of musical misbehaviours that reads like a Who’s Who of the Finnish extreme metal scene (Demilich, Deathbound, Ajattara, Forgotten Horror, and so on), and the band's two guitarists are already part of the SVART family with Jess and The Ancient Ones.

"But it’s the sheer intensity of its music that has put Deathchain at the top of the foodchain as, unlike others, they’ve taken their time to shed their previous collective skins one by one. And what started off back in 2003 with Deadmeat Disciples as one frantic yet somehow still conventional thrash/death vehicle has now become, a decade later, an altogether even more unique and ten-times-more-intense beast."

"Rebellion - rebellion and liberty, they've always been at the heart of what we do," says guitarist Corpse. "During our years as a band, we have grown to disrespect all boundaries, and the fire inside burns ever higher." More...

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...
