Shereign was born out of an endless passion towards music and an unyielding determination to make the rock’n roll dream come true. This charismatic rock/metal act from Finland has successfully created it’s own sound by combining strong lead guitar melodies with groovy riffs that build an empowering and driving atmosphere. In addition to this, the “little extra” comes from the female vocals that can change from soft tender melodies to face punching full distorted grunts in a heartbeat. The music really has a soul of its own.

Verikalpa is a Troll/Beer-metal band from the Northern city of Oulu in Finland. Verikalpa combines groovy riffs and rhythms with twisted folk melodies with a very Finnish touch, the lyrics being in the accent of Oulu. The songs tell tales about drinking, hangovers, trolls and of course bloodspattered eternal battles. This experienced group of musicians deliver their music with a firm touch and with an energetic liveshow.

Grillijono K.O.
Grillijono K.O. has rapidly risen to the forefront of finnish turborock. Grillijono K.O. seamlessly blends rock, punk, and metal, and lyrically nothing seems too sacred to poke fun at. The songs touch on the themes of home, religion, the depths of social media and the Finnish heterosexual male – to name a few. When you hear the name Grillijono K.O., you know you’re guaranteed catchy riffs and pop melodies, heroic guitar solos, and hardcore screams that test the limits.

Stoned Statues
Stoned Statues is an attitude-filled band that stands out both visually and audibly. The band’s extensive repertoire, which has achieved wide popularity, is a bold combination of punk, alternative metal, pop-rock elements, and strong melodies. In catchy lyrics, the band demands justice for all and firmly stands their ground, ‘cause no one else is gonna do it for you.
