Week 30 – Daggerplay

Daggerplay is a Finnish punk rock´n´roll band formed in Helsinki in the end of 2011. The band´s sound is a combination of punk rock, traditional rock´n´roll and power pop.  I really don’t listen to punk rock or pop, however as my metal man says there is Metal in everything.  So I listened to a few of their songs and found myself liking the beat and the enthusiasum this band produces when they’re on stage.


Let’s meet the band:

Lead vocalist and guitarist – Pekko Mantzin

Bryan Ugartechea – Bass

Guitarist and backing vocalist – Tommi Luostarinen

Drummer – Sirpa Immonen.

The band has played over a hundred gigs since they started and playing shows actively.  The second album “Subterranean Reality” was released in October 2018.

Listen to this song Headbangers and tell me if you don’t feel the same way, I was smiling just thinking of all my mental friends LMAO, yeah I know me too.  The name of this song is

“My Friends Are Mental and I Am Mental Too”


“Cruel Wind Blowing”


Don’t Give Up

Just released March 2019

I find that in life, if you’re doing something you truly love, your time and energy will payoff in the end.   True musicians will play no matter what happens, no matter why lies before them, in Finnish it is called Sisu.  It means, strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. So to put it simply, Daggerplay has been through many changes and is still standing and singing, they have Sisu.  I look forward to hearing more from this band in the future.  Remember Never Surrender, Never Give Up.  And that my HeadBangers is it for this week, as always join me next week for another band and another song until then don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn…..
