This week on the Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) returns after a jaunt in Europe, where he helped cover the celebrated Tuska Open Air Metal Festival in Helsinki, Finland.

A series of full-length articles are on the way, but for now, Mike shares a handful of impressions, recollections, and opinions. This year's Tuska featured numerous heavy hitters, including Dimmu Borgir, Anthrax, Emperor, Children Of Bodom, Carcass, Satyricon, and Insomnium. Check out Mike's initial breakdown of the experience, and learn which performances impressed (or surprised) him most.

Then it's on to a new review by co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead), this time of "From Parts Unknown" by eclectic Buffalo, New York noisemakers Every Time I Die. He's not yet sure how this varied release stacks up against his personal favorite, 2012's "Ex Lives," but is quick to assure you it brings plenty of thrills.

Finally, Kevin and Mike react to the recently announced Knotfest lineup - a thorough blend of mainstream and underground, old school and new - and the ill-advised kidnapping hoax by Texas deathcore band Upon A Burning Body, a publicity stunt that backfired spectacularly.

Thank you for your words. I do it with pleasure: I like your take on things, whatever they may be. I check the site several times every day to see what´s up. As far as humour goes, it´s essential for living healthily and people appreciate it - Michael Akerfeldt at Vagos Open Air (Portugal, with Ihsahn, Devin Townsend and Morbid Angel in 2012) was a good example.
Again, thank you.
