Winter sure feels like its closing up since we’ve not gotten any super duper cold and that makes it almost amusing that a crushing group from the generally very cold Finland announces their return to our shores for a lengthy tour. Check it out.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned his before but I was a very late to supper arrival when it comes to this band but I can say that I’ve been doing my best to support them ever since seeing them at the venerated (and now sadly shuttered) B.B. King Blues Club. When I think back to that concert (discussed HERE), I have to chuckle at the aspect that PiercingMetal’s own launch was building quietly in the wings at this time. So that being said I am going to try to be a part of at least two of these performances. It’s all depending on what else I will need to do at the time but yeah so far two shows are on my agenda. What do you readers think about this and the fact that for most shows that the band is playing really intimate venues. Chime in down below in the comments. See you next time.
