Metallihelvetti brings Batushka to Finland for the second time! The show will take place in Kåren, Turku, on Saturday, June 3rd. The Swedish Wormwood and Finnish Korgonthurus have the honor to warm up the stage for the Polish black metal phenomenon. As a heads-up, Korgonthurus’ bass player Necron gave us some background information about the band.
1. First off, tell us a bit about yourselves?
Well, we are KORGONTHURUS. We’ve existed in this decadent world for 17 years already. Over the years, we have released several EPs and only two full length albums, of which the latest, Vuohen Siunaus, was about a year ago.
2. For anyone who hasn’t heard your music before, can tell us a little bit about your sound?
We like to have a clear sound, yet still keep certain ruggedness in it. It has to sound professional, but still as good as we sound live.
3. What’s your best/worst memory of playing in Finland?
We are a Finnish band, so basically we have played only in Finland. We have done only one show in Germany, Under the Black Sun Festival. For me, the best show so far is the latest one in Steelfest Open Air. I thought that there would be no one in the audience because of our early showtime, but I was wrong. There were loads of people who knew the lyrics to our songs, banged their heads off – can’t get better than that. The more shows we do, the more intense they get. I mean both the audience and us.
4. What do you think is going to be the highlight of the upcoming show?
It’s hard to say, we’ll see when we get there.
5. Do you have any last words for potential viewers about the upcoming show?
Our setlist consists of both new and old songs, so be prepared to bang your heads off. See you in Turku!
