Finnish heavy metal band Reckless Love performed at The Croxton in Melbourne on Saturday 7 March 2020, as the headliners of MelodicRock Fest. They formed during 2001 in Kuopio, played covers of Guns N’ Roses songs and called themselves Reckless Life. When they decided to start writing their own songs, they changed their name to Reckless Love and eventually released their self-titled debut album in 2010 that reached number 13 in Finland’s charts.
Their follow-up album came the following year and gave them their biggest hit to date, Hot. The fourth album from the Kings of Merry Metal was most recently released in 2016. Reckless Love is Olli Herman (Crashdïet, Local Band) on lead vocals, Pepe Reckless on guitar, Hessu Maxx on drums, and Jalle Verne on bass.
