Amaranthe (SWE) – Kotkan Meripäivät 2015

Amaranthe (SWE) Elize Ryd 
* Amaranthe is a Swedish metal band notable for having three lead vocalists, each with their own vocal style: pop rock (Elize Ryd), hard rock (Jake E) and extreme metal (Henrik Englund). I was very fortunate to see Amaranthe playing live for the second time in past two years. This time they didn’t have any technical sound problems, so everything sounded superb as they should.

Kuopio Rock Cock 2014

IMG_4625 ScorpionsOne year has already gone by, and again it was time for Kuopio RockCock 2014 Music Festival. This year was great and it went smoothly as always. The weather was excellent, and performing artists shined through out the weekend. Main artist for the event was legendary Scorpions from Germany. I was shooting pictures like always using my digital gear, so here are my pictures.

Pictures from this event:

 

Dead Cult Diaries

Dead Cult Diaries is a promising new band from Jyväskylä. Songs combines elements of punk, pop and hard Rock. Dead Cult Diaries won a Radio Rock Rockstarba-contest last summer. I was checking their live gig at bar Musta Kynnys & shot few photos. I suggest that you check out these photos and official Dead Cult Diaries – Boys & Toys music video from Youtube

Kuopio RockCock 2011


RantalavaOh well here I am again drinking my “morning coffee“. Thinking what to write about this year Kuopio RockCock. When I think of this, I realize that I don’t have anything special to say. I’ve been there so many times in the past, so it’s hard to say anything that I’ve not said before. I think friday night top performer was W.A.S.P from USA. Saturday’s top performer in my opinion was Canadian rock band called Danko Jones. You can check out photos of this festival by clicking these links below. Thanks!

Turmion Kätilöt

I went to shoot photos at Turmion Kätilöt concert at the Kuopio’s Nuorisotalo 😀 That place sure brought some memories from the old days, when I was playing in band too. My new camera took subrisingly good photos on low light environment. Here’s few of my photos from that gig. Songs from the new album “Perstechnique” kick d ass. Like always if you need to have bigger print size photos. Contact me by email.

Jurassic Rock 2010

Two weeks after Kuopiorock festival, I found myself rocking at Jurassic Rock. Beginning of the festival, I had some misfortune because my camera body broke up oddly. It was very hard to take any pictures at all. I still managed to shoot some photos after removing my camera battery every now and then. My camera had this famous CANON “error 99” message on the screen. Click the picture to check out my festival photogallery.
