NEW ADDITIONS TO TUSKA 2020 PROGRAMME - INCLUDING FAITH NO MORE
Faith No More, Baroness, Symphony X and Oranssi Pazuzu have all been added to the bill for the Tuska Festival taking place at Suvilahti in Helsinki on 26-28 June 2020.
Four more artists have been added to the already impressive programme for Tuska 2020. The headliners now include, very deservedly, Mike Patton’s Faith No More, fans of which have been celebrating already since the band announced its European tour. This pioneer of metal and experimental rock has relentlessly followed its own path since the 1980s, combining influences from funk, progressive rock and hip-hop with almost any other genre of music from bossa nova to lounge music. Faith No More’s legendary albums include “The Real Thing”, “Angel Dust” and “King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime”. The group’s latest album “Sol Invictus” was released in 2015.
American band Baroness is likewise known for its uncompromising style. Having released their latest album “Gold & Grey” in June 2019, the four-piece combines sludge, progressive and alternative metal with melodic lines and tasty guitar licks that draw inspiration also from modern indie rock.
The progressive sounds of Symphony X feature neoclassical metal influences. Intricate rhythms are the expressive core of these New Jersey natives without ever compromising their headbanging attributes. Formed in 1994, the band’s biggest hits include the albums “Paradise Lost” and “Iconoclast”.
Oranssi Pazuzu have just completed their first ever North American tour and explore the dark space of black metal and psychedelic rock. The band attracted international acclaim with their 2016 album “Värähtelijä” and have announced that their next album will appear on the Nuclear Blast label.
