Emppu Vuorinen (NIGHTWISH), Santeri Kallio (AMORPHIS), Gus G. (pictured below; FIREWIND, OZZY OSBOURNE) and Jouni Hynynen (KOTITEOLLISUUS) are among the guest musicians who will appear on "Ryh!" , the third album from HEVISAURUS, a Finnish heavy metal band which wears dinosaur costumes and makes music for children. The CD is scheduled for release on September 28.

According to Helsingin Sanomat, many Finnish parents also like HEVISAURUS, as it differs from adult heavy metal only with respect to the lyrics, and the fact that instead of musicians adorned with heavy metal attire and makeup, the music is performed by four dinosaurs and a dragon.

HEVISAURUS's second album, "Hirmuliskojen Y", entered the official chart in Finland at position No. 3. The CD featured guest appearances by Perttu Kivilaakso (APOCALYPTICA), Janne Wirman (CHILDREN OF BODOM), Antti "Hyrde" Hyyrynen (STAM1NA), Janne "Burton" Puurtinen (HIM), Elias Viljanen (SONATA ARCTICA) and Nino Laurenne (THUNDERSTONE).

HEVISAURUS' debut CD, "Jurahevin Kuninkaat", came out in October 2009 and has since been certified gold in Finland for sales in excess of 15,000 copies.
