12:43 - Zaphod Well, any other country than my own would be an amazing opportunity if I ever decide to start a band, I was just giving it as an example because that's where Jari's from.
12:39 - Redn1ght Zap, Finland isn't that great apparently for touring bands.. (They seem to avoid it like a plague tormented country...)
12:31 - Zaphod Yeah, the comments on that guy's long post are also pretty entertaining.
12:30 - MelancholiaC Just curious, if he indeed turns his fanbase into a charity service, how is that any more ethically honest than "those greedy bloodsucking record companies"? (and I doubt Nuclear Blast can really be called one...)
12:26 - MelancholiaC I see that in the fb comments one guy in particular has called him out on it in a long response. Most people just want to throw their money at him through paypal...
12:20 - Zaphod The fact that I saw him live in my own country (Belgium) says enough. If I ever get a chance to tour Europe and play in Finland with my non-existent band I'll already have achieved more than I could ever hope for.
This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.
The band made headlines due to YouTube user Sturmgeist89 (Pekka-Eric Auvinen) - who was responsible for school shootings - bearing the same name as the band. Tabloids tried connecting the shootings to Auvinen's screen name and the band's music. Sturmgiest front man Cornelius Jakhelln later composed "Sturmgeist_89" on the 2009 album Manifesto Futurista, with the chorus: "Sturmgeist_89 why did you do it?"
