Fake H&M Bands To Play Tuska Open Air Festival According To Fest Promoters

This troll is entering a new phase of surrealism.

This troll is entering a new phase of surrealism.

The story of the fake H&M bands refuses to die. Even though Finntroll's Henri “Trollhorn” Sorvali has claimed responsibility for the "art movement," it seems the joke is not over.

The organizers of the Tuska Open Air festival in Helsinki, which currently features acts such as Lamb of God, Sabaton, Exodus and others performing has just announced that the Strong Style bands will be performing as well:

Tuska Festival taking place in Suvilahti, Helsinki, June 26-28, has managed to book the crop of trailblazing cult acts that have been all over the media the past few days. Taking the stage at Suvilahti are Mortus (MEX), Crepuscular (MEX), Eternal Dusk (UK), Grey (GER), Yvaeh (MY), Blast (SWE/FIN), Mystic Triangle (US) and Metal (UK). All aforementioned bands are performing on Sunday 28.6.

As MetalSucks points out, it has yet to be confirmed if there will be an actual performance or this is just a continuation of the troll. But, these trollers are really getting into a gray area when it comes to legal rights performing as these fake bands. They keep poking a giant corporate behemoth like H&M, and H&M may bite back in the form of expensive lawsuits.
