Terrorizer Does Tuska! Day 3 In Pictures And Videos
It’s hard to believe that day three of Tuska is over and we’re heading back to blighty tomorrow.
But before we take to the skies, here’s our run down of the final day at Tuska 2012.
First band of the day, Suicide Silence, came as a pleasant surprise. As we arrived at Tuska they were doing their thing, which sounded alot like Witchery, on the second stage. They even managed to get the first wall of death of the day. Brutal!
Apocalyptica playing on home turf was always going to be great and with it being a festival set, the cellists adapted their set accordingly. ‘Refuse/Resist’, ‘Seek And Destroy’, ‘Hall Of The Mountain King’, they brought some serious tunes and even ran their cellos through wah pedals for the solos.
From the moment Baroness walked on stage at Tuska, the crowd was simply awestruck. With a setlist created from the Red, Blue, Yellow & Green pallets, this was easily one of the best performances of the weekend. Never a dull moment with John Baizley and co.
Considering they were a last minute addition to the bill, Finntroll still managed to pull a great crowd. Their infectiously catchy keyboard parts setting off all kinds of dance offs and mosh pits. Alas, no ’Trollhammaren’ though.
As festival headliners go, Ministry aren’t the first band who’d spring to mind (in the UK at least) but they certainly brought the curtain down on Tuska. Al was on top form and along with his cohorts gave Tuska one of the best performances of the weekend. Nice one Al!
Today’s blog efforts wouldn’t be complete without Overkill. Bobby Blitz and chums brought a much needed dose of old school thrash to Tuska and rattled out a ninety minute thrash attack.
After their set, we caught up with Overkill vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth to see how their set at Tuska went down and also to get the lowdown on the UK Killfest tour.
