Lamb of God hits Tuska stage for the first time in the summer 2015. The band takes the festival audience by storm with their hostile and thrashy guitar works, low-pitched and crawling vocals and grinding live energy. Needles to say, moshpit will be grouded. Amorphis travels back in time and plays the death metal milestone ”Tales From The Thousand Lakes” in its entirety to mark the album’s 20th anniversary. Composer-guitarist Esa Holopainen describes the concept as follows: ”Lakes will be played from beginning to end, show visuals are matched to the era in question and guitars will be drop tuned to C.”
Another legendary album played live at Tuska 2015 is ”Visions” by Stratovarius. This power metal five-piece is about to amplify their breakthrough 10-tracker to the max with such anthems as ”Kiss Of Judas” and ”Black Diamond” among others. The album, originally released back in 1997, is still considered to be one of the cornerstone works wthin the genre. In addition, Tuska crowd will witness ”all killer, no filler” live attitude by Swedish Bombus and rhythms of mysterious stoner performed by Austin based The Sword.
At the festival area, the thing to talk about will be Black Dining restaurant launched by Tuska. Black kitchen’s black menu consisting of blackened main dishes serve vegetarian and carnivore diets alike. The darker the food, the gloomier the mood.
