TUSKA 2017 – MASTODON CONFIRMED AS SUNDAY HEADLINER
20th Tuska at Suvilahti, Helsinki – 30th June – 2nd July 2017
The headline slot for Sunday 2nd July has been given to the Atlanta-based progressively sludgy, yet super-catchy Mastodon for what will be the 20th anniversary for Tuska. The band are due to release their new and highly-anticipated album ”Emperor Of Sand” in March.
Mastodon live up to their name; a giant whose personal, progressive and multi-faceted sound and top-notch playing skills lead to a path, that is walked alone. Mastodons’ music is full of masterful hooks and nuances that have been disguised behind the slightly smoother front. The bands previous albums ”Hunter” and ”Once More Around The Sun” have been huge international hits elevating Mastodon among the heavy weights of metal.
