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/

Do you love music, especially metal music, goth music, singer-songwriter stuff and radio? e.V.'s Underground is seeking a talent for our crew! We are looking for one dedicated soul who lives to bring music to the people. You need to be organized and available for the odd overnighter & not mind fiddling with technical stuff. We provide training.. Great way to get your feet wet in radio and webcasting. This is a volunteer position. Please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The show this week features music from Sweden and the small but mighty Faroe Islands!
Sweden's doom masters Katatonia have just released a brand new live album, Sanctitude (also available as a Blue-Ray disc). And we have it for you, courtesy of Our Dearest Lady Death, in hour 3!
Then in hour 4: this week's Helsinki Spotlight Artists are goth metallers Sinners Moon, who are actually technically Slovakian (!) but since they are signed to Finnish label, Inverse Records, which IS based in Helsinki, we are giving them a free pass. ;-) This week's ReverbNation Band of the Week are Danish stoner rock/metal band, Fusskalt.
Hour 1 is a pastiche of favorite bands, ranging from Opeth to In Flames. Hour 2, e.V. digs through the vaults to find some cool older goth rock tuneage!
Then in hour 5: we have a new (to us) Faroese artist. Very excited to introduce to you the "psychedelic gospel pop" of Knút, (full name: Knút Háberg Eysturstein, say that 5 times fast :P) and his album, "On High". Our producer found him whilest she searched Twitter for hashtags to do with places where the solar eclipse was total. :)
