Tuska Open Air Day 2 - And God Did Send His Wrath
July 3, 2016, a year ago
When Ghost took the stage, the heavens opened, with a downpour that wouldn't have been expected on an otherwise beautiful day in Helsinki, Finland. The day began with an impassioned performance by Primordial, followed by the brutal black metal of an oft controversial Tsjuder. Had a lesson in local heroes Turmion Katilot: part Rammstein, part Insane Clown Posse, totally wacked! Omnium Gatherum played under the tent, while the technical death metal of Obscura was afforded the huge main stage. Thunderstone played, despite a bassist filling in at the last minute (three hours to learn the set, as Titus Hjelm was admitted to the hospital, with an emergency). The 60s, hippie stylings of Jess And The Ancient Ones found a few friends, opposite thrash legends Anthrax and the evening concluded, under (appropriately?) stormy skies, with Ghost. A full, detailed write-up will be forthcoming, until then, some photos.
