Esittely Introduction

Opera Festival Rocks! Battle Beast, Arion, Wheel

An opera summer needs a spot of heavy relief. This year, the Castle walls will reverberate as three top metal bands take the stage on Sunday July 21.

Battle Beast skippered by singer Noora Louhimo is to visit Olavinlinna Castle as one of its ports of call on a European tour kicking off with the release of the band’s fifth album No More Hollywood Endings at the end of March. Also taking the stage will be Arion, a band that plays fresh, modern symphonic metal. Arion’s second album, Life Is Not Beautiful, won rave reviews in the music media when released in October 2018 and was nominated for the year’s best metal album at Finland’s Emma Gala. 

Wheel, a British-Finnish line-up also playing progressive rock and metal, will be gigging in Central Europe during a tour of its own before landing up at the Opera Festival. Its fresh-off-the-press debut album Moving Backwards first saw the light of day on February 22 and won great critical acclaim.
