ABOUT THE BAND HEAVYSAUR
The children’s favorite band Heavysaur, with its five dinosaur members, was born in 2009, from the idea of making quality heavy music for children and “child-minded”. The rowdy kids’ heavy band has published six albums. The latest one, The Green Revolution, was awarded the Emma prize for the best children’s album. The band has sold over 170 000 albums in Finland alone. Heavysaur has drawn a lot of international interest and for example, two albums have been published in Argentina in Spanish, quite successfully. Heavysaurios was awarded the prize for best children’s album at the Gardel Music Awards. Heavysaur will publish their first collection album in October 2013.
