'Children's Metal' Band HEVISAURUS Lands In Finnish Top 5

September 25, 2010

"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).

"Hirmuliskojen Yö" was released in Finland on September 15 via Sony Music. A single, "Saurusarmeija" (hear audio below),preceded the full-length effort. The CD was once again produced by Pasi Heikkilä and Nino Laurenne, who also helmed HEVISAURUS' debut album, "Jurahevin Kuninkaat".

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

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.
