[Edit 6/1 2013: A link to a German documentary from the cruise]
One trip is usually exhausting enough experience. This one was a double, so we went the Stockholm – Turku route twice. But no worries, the SR people always take good care of me, got my own cabin and there were plenty to eat and dring on the ship. Lots of great people as usual so, as always, I ended up with a bunch of pics from all over the place.

AMORPHIS – Sweden Rock Double Cruise 5/10 2012
“Amorphis is a Finnish heavy metal band started by Jan Rechberger, Tomi Koivusaari, and Esa Holopainen in 1990. Initially, the band was a death metal act, but on later albums they evolved into playing other genres, including heavy metal, progressive metal, and folk metal. They frequently use the Kalevala, the Epic Poem of Finland, as a source for their lyrics.”
FINNTROLL – Sweden Rock Double Cruise 5/10 2012
“Finntroll is a folk metal band from Helsinki, Finland. They combine elements of black metal and folk metal. Finntroll’s lyrics are mostly in Swedish, the only exception being the song “Madon Laulu” on Visor Om Slutet. Finntroll’s first singer Katla decided to use Swedish over Finnish since he was part of a Swedish-speaking minority in Finland and the sound of the language seemed to better suit the band’s “trollish” outfit. Despite several vocalist changes, this tradition has since been continued.”
IN SOLITUDE – Sweden Rock Double Cruise 5/10 2012
IN SOLITUDE played definitely on the “wrong” boat (kinda different crowd on the first one…) and as a first band on the way back to Stockholm. I guess they were also “slightly” hangover. So of course they played the asses off everybody as they usually do:) A hell of a show once more! Are there still somebody out there NOT knowing about this band??
