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...
Sweden’s blackest of the black, Naglfar, have signed a new worldwide record contract with Century Media Records. Their new album, tentatively titled “Pariah”, is currently being recorded at Ballerina Studios in the band’s hometown of Umea. A wise decision as both preceding albums, “Diabolical” and “Sheol”, had been recorded in this studio and gave the band’s razor sharp sound its keen edge.
“Pariah” will be released in Spring 2005 and the new material promises to solidify Naglfar's reputation as one of the best – if not the best – bands in their musical genre. The expectations are of course high as the band’s last masterpiece “Sheol” received excellent feedback without exception all over the globe, i.e. achieving the highest praise from the press - Album Of The Month in Legacy (D) and Heavy, Oder Was!? (D), or 10 out of 10 points Rock Hard (D), to name just a few -- and climbing to top ten positions in the reader’s year-end polls of various magazines.
Naglfar, who had rewritten the rules of black metal with their debut “Vittra” in 1995 (this album ranks amongst the 300 best metal albums of all time in Rock Hard magazine) and have released the most brutal album of 1998 with their second output “Diabolical” (featuring immortal classics like “The Brimstone Gate” or the infamous “Horncrowned Majesty”), have always had a high standing in the black and death metal scene, which fully manifested itself with their last album “Sheol”, gaining the band many more fans than ever before.
According to this history, it is no surprise that “Pariah” is one of the most-awaited albums in the metal scene this year. But from a band that has always delivered the highest quality, one can expect that “Pariah” will again be a damn classic of pure melodic Swedish black metal that will break the competition’s neck.
Although the final tracklist is still to be announced, “Pariah” will contain the following tracks: More...
