HEVISAURUS: ‘Children’s Metal’ Band Lands In Finnish Top 5
“Hirmuliskojen Yö”, the second album from HEVISAURUS — which is described as one of the the hottest things in Finnish children’s music — has entered the official chart in Finland at position No. 3.
The CD features 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).
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.
