Something brand new’s coming up! Combining one-of-a-kind metal concerts, state-of-the-art music video aesthetics and an entertaining travel show, Tuska Utopia sees Finnish artists performing in intriguing landscapes in the global home of heavy metal. The three episodes will receive their premiere in November, and the artists will be announced during late October and early November.
Having topped the Finnish album charts in April with their latest full-length Global Warning, industrial metal powerhouse Turmion Kätilöt have the honour to open the Tuska Utopia series on Friday, 13th of November 2020, at 9pm (UTC +2). The Suvilahti gasometer in Helsinki serves as a stage and we promise you – there will be fire! Watch the trailer here and buy stream tickets here.
”With all this virus shit around, many bands started to stream their shows. We did not want to do so unless it was something special. When Tuska organization contacted us and told us about this Tuska Utopia thing we felt it was something different and wanted to participate. Tuska has always been known from high standards of doing things and this was no exception. With top notch production and crew, playing in a super cool location was truly a night to remember.”
- Bobby Undertaker / Turmion Kätilöt
Each hour-long stream includes a concert, an interview with the artists and a tour of the location in the spirit of a travel show hosted by Samy Elbanna from the band Lost Society. The episodes are directed by Taku Kaskela, well-known for directing both TV shows and music videos. Tuska Utopia is a new concept created and produced by the team behind the Tuska Festival.
