If you want death metal in it’s finest, then you would love the fact, that one of the most controversial bands, DEICIDE, are coming with their new album Overtures of Blasphemy to decimate the fortress and crush your heads! Speaking of blasphemy and devil, on the other hand are standing DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA, with their blend of many different genres, which is a thing not only for fans of avant-garde metal.
Following the massive response from the last summer, the forest fairy MYRKUR returns to our festival to conquer the sceptics yet again! The soft appearance can indeed be hiding for a dark soul… The quick succession also serves as a mean of apology for the unfinished show from this year.
Virginia’s heavy psychedelic quartet WINDHAND presents infectious display of songcraft cloaked in alluring atmosphere, molten fuzz, eerie psychedelia and ethereal vocals. The Ohio satanic royalty MIDNIGHT approaches metal from its dirty side and will finally send shockwaves of rock’n’roll violence through the BA crowds, subjugating and dominating all metalheads with lust, filth, and sleaze! You Can’t Stop Steel!
And the finale will belong to the black hordes, that shall look forward for continuation of the bleak, dark and disillusioned MGŁA style of black metal, coming forth with both their anticipated new record and a Brutal Assault performance! And NECROS CHRISTOS will commit their final hour with their final album Domedon Doxomedon to a performance cutting a swath of destruction through both the zeitgeist of modern heavy music and the walls of our beloved fortress with their first and last appearance at BA. Let’s kick off this update with OF MICE & MEN! Mix strong rock melodies reminiscing the golden era of hard rock with memorable hooks and juvenile energy of these contemporary American stars and you get a helluva strong blend of metalcore fit for festival crowds! If you lust for straight-forward aggressive new wave hardcore, you should look forward for LIONHEART, who are now obliterating stages and music charts alike with their latest record Welcome to The West Coast Pt. II!
