Nummirock - Day Three, June 21st 2014, Nummijärvi, Kauhajoki, Finland

Nummirock is held over the crucial Finnish Juhannas holiday. Metalheads from all over head to the serene lakeside venue to set up camp and cry havoc for the long weekend. The last day of the festival swept in cold and damp, but that didn't deter the thousands from drinking and live music! It had our photographer hiding in the warmer drinking areas, but we've got live shots from Stone, Turisas, Turmion Kätilöt, W.A.S.P., Whispered, Suicide Silence and Tuoni!

Nummirock - Day Two, June 20th 2014, Nummijärvi, Kauhajoki, Finland

Nummirock is held over the crucial Finnish Juhannas holiday. Metalheads from all over head to the serene lakeside venue to set up camp and cry havoc for the long weekend. It's moshpits, metal and most importantly, it's Midsummer. The second day came in with sullen morning trips for hair of the dog, but we caught the brilliant live shows of (in performance order) Kuolemanlaakso, Medeia, Wolfheart, Mokoma, Mörbid Vomit, Stam1na, The Black Dahlia Murder, Behemoth and Sacrilegious Impalement!

It's bugs, beer and bonfires. It's sauna with new friends, sauna with old friends and naked drunks wandering the campsites. It's moshpits, metal and most importantly, it's Midsummer. The opening evening was filled with Deals Death (SWE), Profane Omen (FIN), Speedtrap (FIN) and Kaunis Kuolematon (FIN).

Wacken Celebrate 25 Years: Part Two - "our dressing room was right near a truck that was pumping raw sewage out of the toilets"

"I just kept my head down and played my guitar, I did my part"

Wacken is fast approaching; there's  a mere 35 days to go to liftoff - however in the minds of the lucky few (100,000 odd) it is 35 days too long.
