Allister has been around since 1996, which is like forever. Someone told me that Allister was one the biggest pop punk bands in early 00s. However, it’s really never heard in Finland, so that’s why it ends up to this list.
With Canon 60D I’ve used Samyang 8 mm as my fisheye lens. Obviously, I needed a fisheye for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2, and I had three options: Samyang 7.5 mm 3.5, Panasonic 8 mm 3.5 and Olympus 8 mm 1.8. It wasn’t an easy choice, but I ended up choosing Samyang 7.5 fisheye.
Olympus 8 mm 1.8 is definitely the best of these three, but it also costs the most. For the price of one Olympus one could buy 4 Samyangs, so I just couldn’t afford it right. […] Read more!
I’ve been searching for new pop punk bands that I haven’t heard of before. I picked a band and checked its related artists. From those I picked up the ones that I liked the most and created pop punk playlists from them. Here’s playlist number 7!
Obviously “Never Heard” can be defined as “Never Played a Show Finland”. Cute Is What We Aim For has over one million likes in Facebook… What’s even more impressing, they had their song “There’s a Class for This” in NHL 07, so this can’t be bad! […] Read more!
I’ve been returning back to this band so many times that I just had to include 4 of their songs to the list. If something else than MadCraft can be called superpowered then it has to be So Many Ways! The band comes from Chicago and describes them as fast music for fast people. […] Read more!
Can’t Bear This Party! is a pop punk band from France, or as they call it: pop hardcore band. They say that they’ve played in most European countries, but I bet they haven’t been in Finland! Get over here and take Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! with you!
Uuden Musiikin Kilpailun finaali lähestyy! Tänä lauantaina pääsen soittamaan isoimman keikkani ikinä, kun vedetään meidän kisabiisi Shining Bright liveyleisölle Barona Areenalla. Unohtamatta kotikatsomoita TV2:n äärellä! Tätä varten on tehty töitä viime vuodesta saakka, ja homma on loppurutistuksia vaille valmis.
Meidän ja muidenkin kisaajien vaatteet on herättäny huomiota ympäriinsä. Risut ja ruusut menee tietty UMK-stylisteille, joiden kanssa mekin ollaan välillä tukkanuottasilla. Mutta hyvässä hengessä tietty! Toisaalta mulla on ollut kokoajan aika helppoa, koska oon pitänyt kaikissa lähetyksissä omia paitoja päällä. […] Read more!
I got a message from a friend, to whom I actually teach playing the drums. Not long ago we were checking out a gig by Limp Bizkit, which needless to say was awesome. During the aftermath we talked about bands we’d like to see live. The first and brightest wish in my mind was of course All Time Low coming to Finland one day. And this was the message I got yesterday, All Time Low coming to Finland. […] Read more!
Yesterday we were recording basses for new song we are making at the moment. Last time we recorded bass Tom really liked the sound of my ESP Amaze Deluxe 5-string bass, so it was no brainer that I took it with me this time also! Here’s a little bit about the gear we used when we recorded the bass!
ESP Amaze 5-string in Black Turquoise color!
I don’t usually use 5-string basses with Madcraft, but this one has really nice sound when recording. […] Read more!
New Found Glory released a new single with a music video last week. Even though Connect The Dots is a limited edition single from their new – and actually first ever – live album, the track itself is a traditional studio track.
Juho, Tom and Otto checked out the track. Read on to see what they have to say about it!
Juho: Sometimes you gotta say WTF?! This one’s awesome!
Tom: Definitely! A real nice surprise. […] Read more!
