CRADLE OF FILTH, KREATOR, DARK TRANQUILLITY To Team Up For Finland's TUSKA WINTER WAR

British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH have been added to the KREATOR/DARK TRANQUILLITY concert at the Icehall in Helsinki, Finland on March 7, 2005. CRADLE OF FILTH will headline the event, which is being dubbed "Tuska Winter War".

CRADLE OF FILTH were last seen on Finnish soil at this year's Ilosaarirock festival, where the extremely light Finnish summer night wasn't quite the most suitable environment for the band. The preparations to present the group in more matching surroundings began almost immediately.

"Getting these three world class acts under the same roof is a result of hard work, but also quite a bit of luck," the organizers said in a statement. "This event is one of its kind, the bands go their separate ways immediatly after the show in Helsinki."

Although all three acts come from abroad, Finnish metal knowlegde is very much present in the form of Sami Yli-Sirniö (ex-WALTARI), a Finnish guitar legend who currently plays in KREATOR.
