Monsters of Rock

Who said dinosaurs were extinct? In Finland, a band full of dinosaurs - yes, dinosaurs - are sweeping the nation with their heavy metal music.

Aimed at children, Hevisaurus is a fun, educational band that uses amps which reach a child-friendly 85 decibels on stage. These monsters of rock first formed in 2009 and have gone from strength to strength since, having two top 10 albums already. Their singles focus on everyday events such as bullying, chewing gum, drinking milk and being part of the ‘Saurus army.

Band spokesperson Jan Streng says ‘Hevisaurus is about fun characters, nice stories, music, colours and lights. The band is suitably hard, but not scary.’

Travel to Finland with the Mighty Fine Company and you might even catch Hevisaurus in action!

Finlaugh

Last month Finland hosted its first ever English stand-up comedy festival. The showcase, Arctic Laughs, saw around 30 comedians perform their side-splitting routines. Ali Jahangiri, one of the comedians and organisers of the event, explained ‘This is the first-ever English comedy festival where English is not the native language. In Finland, people don't seem to realise how good our stand-up comedians are, and with the help of this festival we would like change that." The showcase was a big hit, providing ample entertainment for locals and tourists – it even gave some local comedians the chance to show off their talents and practice their English!
