THE HOTTEST NAMES FROM ABROAD AND FINNISH HEAVINESS
Tuska has always been known for it’s fair share of international acts making waves in the metal industry at the moment. Among the first confirmed Artists for 2018 is the Australian metalcore-giant Parkway Drive who is undeniably one of the current leaders of their genre. The band’s relentless work with tour after tour and a successful record after another is paying off. Their popularity has gone through the roof internationally and now it’s time to take over Finland. The band from Byron Bay, New Wales are touring the world with a full production and now they are on their way to Tuska to play their only Finnish show of the summer!
Sweden’s Arch Enemy is undeniably one of the hottest commodities in the metal world right now. While being an A-class act through out their entire career, they turned the heat up a notch when Alissa White-Gluz took over the vocal duties and the band released their highly acclaimed new ”Will To Power” album.
The multi-instrumentalist of the Norwegian fjords, Ihsahn, and his namesake band have been added to the line-up to give the proge-heads their daily dose.
American heavyweights Clutch kick it off with their groovy riffage like there’s no tomorrow. Their current album ”Psychic Warfare” is an awesome display of prowess from a band that’s way more than 20 years deep in the game and still going strong, constantly putting out their best work.
Finnish Pagan metal squad Moonsorrow unleashed their seventh studioalbum, titled ”Jumalten Aika” (”The Age Of Gods” ) last year. ”Jumalten Aika” is a dark journey to the depths of the past and now it takes them to Tuska.
Local boys Beast In Black will soon set free their first born. ”Berserker” does not hold back or ask for permission. Get with it or get out of the way.
