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.’
