Anthrax, Gojira and Mantar for Tuska Open Air Metal Festival 2016

Finland’s heaviest festival, Tuska is really upping the ante this year by adding some serious talent to its 2016 Artist roster.

FROM THRASH TILL DEATH

There can never be enough thrash metal in the line-up and the legendary Anthrax is here to up the ante. One of the Big Four, Anthrax has produced some of the most memorable thrash anthems to date, such as “Caught In A Mosh”, “I Am The Law” and “Be All, End All” to name a few. With their new album ‘For All Kings’ due to drop this year. Their Tuska appearance is surely not one to miss.

French technical and progressive death metal squad Gojira have been added to the already illustrious Tuska line up. Gojira are currently working on the follow up to their highly regarded “L’Enfant Sauvage”album and are definitely going to hit the stage harder than a flying whale!!

 

German ultimate power duo Mantar trust their wall of guitars and relentlessly pounding drums. Doses of black metal, crust and doom riffage shake hands in this evil inferno of sound that will stop at nothing.
