Ilosaarirock Festival 12th – 14th July 2013



The rumours of Xysma's comeback gig sent ecstatic vibrations all over Finland last year. Founded in Naantali, Xysma never reached the fame it deserved, which is one of the great grievances in the history of music. Especially in these days when stoner, sludge, and shady riffs are being recycled all over again, Xysma feels like a very current boogiemonster. This group, starting their career with grindcore, created the grooviest distorted riffs in this country.

Xysma's previous performance in Töminä Club was in 1995. If you weren't born yet back then, you can fix this faux pas this summer!
