Welcome back to the Rock Fanatic Rockcast where Independent, Unsigned, Undiscovered bands in the world of Rock and Metal; get showcased on the show we call the Rock Fanatic Rockcast!

This week, we return to an old series that once graced the Rockcast; 'Around the Globe with the Rock Fanatic'
In the past we ventured to Greece, various African Countries and Cyprus. I decided to focus on my favorite region, Scandinavia.
Finland is often called the land of Heavy Metal and it's true in many ways especially with the playlist that's on this week!
So let's see what's in store for this special...starting with a band from Helsinki that's about to unleash their debut album! We have some Punk Rock and if your MP3 player needs something that isn't Adele related, listen to a band that your player will thank you for!
If you take aggressive metal and melodic arena rock, you would have this band that released their debut EP back in December last year. Last year, I discovered some really great stoner metal bands from various locations, we discover another one! I have a band for fans of the genre that is Progressive metal! We also have thrash metal that was inspired by the big 4 of thrash! Then we have some rock and roll to end the show and this is thanks to the bands debut album.

So for those thinking Lordi is the only band from the country, well listen here and you will discover the next big thing from the Country that is Finland!
Let's recap the playlist!

Wishing Well - Hippie Heart Gypsy Soul
Slap Betty - World We Leave Behind
Scarecell - Lay Down Forever
Centipede - Drown
Amoth - Tattered Wings
Justice Theory - Necessary Evil
Guns of Glory - I'm Glad You're Gone

If you enjoyed any of the bands featured on this week's show, go and find them on all social sites and purchase their music and buy the merchandise! Do NOT support the Pirates or the Torrents!

Welcome back to the Rock Fanatic Rockcast where Independent, Unsigned, Undiscovered bands in the world of Rock and Metal; get showcased on the show we call the Rock Fanatic Rockcast!

This week is the Rock Fanatic's Birthday, either its hoorah due to the fact its a day we can celebrate with CAKE!..otherwise its Hooroo as I'm going to be a year older. The upside is that the music is getting better and the start of 2016 has gotten off on the right foot! Already a few albums that could claim album of the year and we haven't even passed the end of January, this is amazing as the genre has evolved into something more!
So let's check out the birthday playlist! Firstly we don't need to check your auditory or need glasses, we have one of the biggest bands and one of my personal favorites (for the iPod) appear on the Rockcast, we promote the single and forthcoming album and talk my personal history with the band. Without them, we wouldn't have bands of today; for example we have a band from Derby who were influenced by them!
We also head to Sheffield to discover a local band that are hoping to become known elsewhere and have struggled to gain air play...Rock Fanatic to the rescue!
We head over to Scotland to play some Goth Rock; Scotland's answer to Nine Inch Nails perhaps? We then travel to Plymouth to play some unsigned metal.
For the headliners we travel oversees to the country that is Austria to play a brand new band that is Melodic Punk Rock. The song is very addicting!

So let's recap the playlist;

Black Stone Cherry - The Way of the Future
These Wicked Rivers - The Enemy
Firegarden - La/Choose Your Own Adventure
Gothzilla - Today is a Good Day to Die
Six Sins till Sunday - Revenge Kill
Headgrenades - Reflections
