* Within Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band founded in 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt. They have always been classified by critics as gothic metal or rock, although the “gothic” influence varies with each album. This band is one of my favourites, so I was very happy to see them playing live for the first time. *Wikipedia
* 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.

One year has already passed by, and again it was time for Kuopio RockCock 2014 Music Festival. This year festival was great like always, and it went smoothly as fucx. 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.

Saying “don’t fix it, if it ain’t broken” reflect perfectly this years Kuopio RockCock music festival. Two days of great weather and awesome music performances are more than one can ask for. My favorite bands on this year festival was Amaranthe (SWE), Helloween & U.D.O from Germany. Of course there were many other great artist, but that was my top 3.
