Tuska 2015

Tuska Open Air has just confirmed the addition Testament and Primordial for next year’s instalment of the festival. Even more bands will be announced on October 30th just as early “crow” tickets go on sale.

Release from Tuska
California’s own thrash patrol TESTAMENT is one of the cornerstones of its genre. The band’s career started back in 1987 when the group released its debut album ”The Legacy”. Ever since Testament has sold more than 14 million albums worldwide and according to Alex Skolnick 11th Testament album is coming out in early 2016. That said, Tuska-goers are about to enjoy fresh Californian thrash rhythms next summer.

Ireland based PRIMORDIAL is titled as the black metal pioneer of their home country. Quintet’s sound is unique combining melodical elements of celtic and folk metal to raw black metal. During the years the band has honed its sound and song writing to top level of which the ”Where Greater Man Have Fallen” album is a solid proof.

TUSKA 2016 confirmed bands so far: BEHEMOTH, TESTAMENT, TSJUDER and PRIMORDIAL. More bands will be announced on Oct 30
