Helldone 2014 Special Guests
This mysterious act from 'somewhere behind God's back' has until now kept the lowest of low profiles. The few who managed to catch a glimpse of Rambo Rimbaud's live appearances under various monikers in the mid noughties confess in unison that they had been blown away. 'It's hard to put a finger on the music, other than it being out of this world, emotional and very powerful. I actually remember wondering where they have disappeared!' After these humble beginnings, a series of unfortunate events brought about a forced hiatus of almost ten years, but now Rambo Rimbaud is finally working on its debut album, tentatively entitled "Militantly Violent Libertine".
DANIEL LIONEYE & THE ROLLERS
The Rollers called it quits after playing only a handful of shows in 1999-2000. Too much, too soon. Despite of their relatively short lifespan this first manifestation of HIM guitarist Linde’s solo career managed to release an album appropriately titled “The King of Rock’n Roll”. The title track became the theme song of Bam Margera’s TV show Viva La Bam. The rest of the songs, like, say, International Pussy Lover, they became something else. Radio hits they weren’t, but the heart of rock’n’roll skipped a beat, nevertheless. Expect a healthy dose of root remedies rammed down your throats by messieurs Daniel Lioneye, Bad Mize and Bil Bao. Mercy!
BREAKING NEWS: on Tuesday DJ Jussi69 will be manning the decks at Helldone’s Doomsday Disco @ Semifinal. He may or may not repeat this feat on New Year’s Eve.
DANIEL CAVANAGH (UK)
On New Year’s Eve the audience will be guided out of the valley of death (where they have been led by Kuolemanlaakso, the night’s intense opener) to the dawn of a new morning by the one and only Daniel Cavanagh. The Anathema guitarist and chief songwriter is indeed the perfect guide, in both the spiritual and musical sense. His band has recently released a new album called “Distant Satellites” which leans increasingly on electronica, but in his solo shows Danny relies on his voice, acoustic guitar and a few chosen samples. Not to mention a bunch of divine songs!
