Lo and behold, Finland's beloved 'Love Metallers' sprang a welcome surprise on both concert-goers and all their fans as they unveiled their new drummer, Jukka 'Kosmo' Kroger, at their Qstock festival gig in Oulu, Suomi. The show was originally billed as a Rambo Rimbaud gig - band frontman's solo project. Kroeger also plays guitar, and in several other bands as you can see from his entry here on Encyclopedia Metallum/The Metal Archives.

This Week's Show We Goth Out w/ HIM's 3rd studio album & Double Eyelid's debut LP
Congratulations are in order to Morgan Ryder and Canada's own VESPERIA, all 'Risen Victorious' ;-), having been crowned the 2015 International Final Champions of the Wacken Metal Battle! You know you rule. They join Crimson Shadows, who were the 1st Canadian band to win the annual Wacken International prize back in 2013. Very honoured to have played both bands' music on the show back before they were known outside the Canadian metal scene. \w/
