    OK, I'm bumping this one back up since I'm trying to figure out our plans.
    I'm thinking that Mere and I would start in Helsinki, then make our way through Sweden and Norway the week after the Festival and fly home from Norway.

    Anyone else thinking of hitting this one up and maybe want to explore the viking lands with us?

    Bolt Thrower, King Diamond, Testament, Kreator, Amorphis, Wintersun, Ihsahn & Leprous, Soilwork, Amaranthe & Nightwish (For Ville).

    So, it looks like we are going to make this happen! :viking:

    We would like to try to visit Sweden (and gnoff) and Norway (Bergen) also while on this adventure.
    Any suggestions on what would be the best way to get between the countries while we are there?

    Yes, on a boat to Stockholm, either from Helsinki or Turku. Gnoffi can give you hints on how to get around Sweden, but I think train is your best bet.
    If you have time, we could go on a day trip to Tallinn, it's only a three-hour ferry ride away and a really beautiful town.

    Thanks for the info, guys! :3drunks:

    I'm seeing one way flights from Helsinki to Stockholm for 35 Euro / person on Norwegian air. A quick one hour flight. Is that correct?
    http://www.norwegian.com/en/flight/select-flight/?D_City=HEL&A_City=ARN&TripType=1&D_Day=02&D_Month=201307&D_SelectedDay=02&R_Day=05&R_Month=201307&R_SelectedDay=05&AgreementCodeFK=-1&CurrencyCode=EUR&rnd=78553&processid=31201

    Definitely thinking of doing train from Stockholm to Gothenburg since I hear it can be quite scenic. Train looks to be about 100 Euro / person.

    From Oslo to Bergen, I'm seeing flights ranging in price from 28.20 - 70.60 Euro depending on time of day. Train from Oslo to Bergen was looking to be about 115 Euro.

    This should be a fun experience! :beerhorns: :viking:

    Right now that's up in the air. It depends on how much time I'll be able to take off work.
    I'm thinking that I will probably need to be back at work on July 8 or 9, but I may be able to get that entire second week of July off as well. I'm going to start asking my bosses about what the schedule looks like for this summer so I can put a firm plan together.

    Is there something in Finland that is a can't miss?

    Not really. I was thinking that if you guys came like a week before Tuska, we could go up to Central Finland for Midsummer. It's the weekend before Tuska and the Friday (June 21st) is a national holiday.
    There's Nummirock festival then, but I don't think you - and sure as hell I don't - want to go camping in the middle of nowhere. So, yeah, I have a house in Äänekoski and the area is surrounded by lakes and forests, so if that's something you enjoy, we could drive up there. It's only a 300 kilometer drive one-way.

    This photo is from a place near Äänekoski:

    ^^ That looks really nice, but unfortunately I won't be able to come into town any earlier than June 27.
    This is a really busy year at work and I'll be fortunate to get June 27th - July 8th off work as I've requested.

    Hopefully I get word back today that my time off is approved so I can actually buy tickets.

    I'll keep you in the loop when I find out. :cheers:

    Just purchased our tickets a few minutes ago. Still need to figure out where we are flying into (looking at flying into Gothenburg, but maybe Bergen).... Trying to squeeze one more vacation day out of my employers.

    I noticed an afterparty with Jesper Stromblad and Marco Arro's new band (The Resistance) and Omnium Gatherum. That sounds fun and should be a lot better than what In Flames and The Haunted became.

    I would like nothing more than to keep you and your beers company. :party:

    The best plan I've come up with right now has us flying into Gothenburg and landing at about 14:00 Saturday, June 22. If I can get Friday off work, this would change to some time on Friday June 21.
    *** Edit - We will now fly out on Thursday night, so we can land in Gothenburg on Friday!!****

    Trying to figure out the cheapest/fastest way to get from Gothenburg to Bergen. I'm seeing an $88/person flight that has a short layover in Stockholm (5 hours total travel time :| ), or possibly an overnight layover in Stockholm to at least have an evening to see the town.
    Then a flight from Bergen to Helsinki (with another short layover in Stockholm) for $152/each.

    It's looking that with our short time schedule, flying (not trains) would be the best way to get around. As long as flights are reasonable, I don't mind paying a bit extra so that we have time to explore the towns a bit more.

    Any insider travel tips?

    Night train might be an option. Leaving Göteborg 18:00 and arriving in Bergen 06:51 the next day. If you book early you can get a non-flexible ticket for 249 NOK per person (booking starts 3 months in advance), plus 850 extra for both if you want a sleeping compartment.
    Keep in mind that checked bags are extra (69 NOK per leg, IIRC) if you fly Norwegian.

    I noticed an afterparty with Jesper Stromblad and Marco Arro's new band (The Resistance) and Omnium Gatherum. That sounds fun and should be a lot better than what In Flames and The Haunted became.

    Jep and this is saturday after party http://www.tiketti.fi/Tuska-jatkot-Nost ... kets/19652

    Speedy wrote:Night train might be an option. Leaving Göteborg 18:00 and arriving in Bergen 06:51 the next day. If you book early you can get a non-flexible ticket for 249 NOK per person (booking starts 3 months in advance), plus 850 extra for both if you want a sleeping compartment.
    Keep in mind that checked bags are extra (69 NOK per leg, IIRC) if you fly Norwegian.


    Hmm, I'm not seeing these prices anywhere on any rail site I'm looking at. From what I'm seeing, it's still looking cheaper, and much faster, to fly. Am I just looking in the wrong places?

    Looks like the afterparties are shaping up quite nicely. I hope we get a Wolfheart afterparty to make Kevin jealous. More Tuomas, more better :P

    Use NSB directly: http://www.nsb.no/?lang=en_US
    I see 498 NOK for two here: http://bit.ly/16Pwd0h

    Ok, Tuska was last weekend and what a weekend it was! Even if the lineup wasn't too good, I did have lots of fun with Markku, Fredrik, Maso, Ryan and Mere (and loads of other cool peeps).
    Aah, yes, there were bands too. Let's see..
    Friday: Abhorrence was really good, Ihsahn wasn't, Torture Killer was awesome, Bolt Thrower was really good, Almost fell asleep during Amorphis and King Diamond was ok except for the really high vocals do make me laugh. Death metal night at Virgin Oil had some excellent old school death metal in the form of Daemonicus from Sweden and the Finnish legends of Convulse. The Death cover band wasn't that good.
    Saturday: The only band I wanted to see on Saturday was De Lirium's Order, but, obviously, missed them. :lol: Urfaust was surprisingly good.
    Sunday: The first band of the day was Deathchain, so we had to get to the festival site already at 2pm. They were good like always. Amaranthe was disappointing, but I did get some nice Kevin lookalike photos from the gig. :lol: Battle Beast is bad music-wise, but the chick is a really good singer. And Nightwish with Floor was simply amazing. The highlight of the day was the Meheecan dinner at Amarillo after the festival. Muy caliente.

    I had a nice time there. Only the Sunday was pretty boring. Almost only terriblly bad bands playing.
    Nevertheless I've seen some really nice shows (Wintersun, Kreator, Nightwish, Betrayal At Bespin)

    Tuska was a BLAST! Sure the lineup could have been better, but it doesn't matter when you are with such great people!
    Kiitos todella paljon, Markku, Tiina, Ville, Fredrik, Maso and all the other wonderful people we had the pleasure of hanging out with!

    First of all: our report is online and you can find it here: http://metal-exposure.com/?page_id=12052

    And then our picture at Tuska.
    Best part of it is, that we just asked the guy behind us to take a picture of us, and he looked very strange when we put the camera in his hands.
    Not long after that I found out way, cause he was the guitarplayer of Soilwork, and I guess he's more used to people asking them to take a picture wíth him, instead of him actually taking the picture :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Image


    And not my most charming one, but ready to take shots of Nightwish! :headbanger:
