First off we unfortunately need to start with bad news as MANES are forced to pull out due to personal issues, however we’ve already made a deal to bring them next year which makes them the first band annonced for 2020.
Now to the good news! Pagan black metal stalwarts KAMPFAR of Norway will be back with their brand new records Ofidians Manifest, representing the force of black metal in 2019. 25 years on from their foundation, KAMPFAR condensate the struggles of the recent years into a powerful record, that is supported even more powerful live performances.
Next on the list are Japanese experimentators CROSSFAITH who continue to evolve in unique style with synths that sound like guitars, guitars that sound like laserbeams and bleeding-edge beats throughout, it’s the sound of a band who have carve out their own new identity with every release.
The Spaniards ALTARAGE are bristling with black and dissonant death metal fury that immediately evokes a plethora of sinister images in the brain. Their relentless soul-crushing sound will send your minds into overdrive.
Polish enigma ENTROPIA
will showcase a one of a kind psyched, hypnotic and psychedelic and
sludgy post-black metal while Icelanders UNE
take you to Icelands darkest and bleakest landscapes via their
hardcore sound that pushes boundaries and cuts deep.
The Germans UNPROCESSED will present their latest output Artificial Void, which has highly diversified sound and can be described as a technically sophisticated modern progressive djenty metal.
The local scene will be represented by unrelenting head-bashing death metal of BRUTALLY DECEASED, modern sounding black/death MALLEPHYR that will surely pleasure every Behemoth fan, modern sounding death metal with prog and metal/death/core influences ELYSIUM and one of the longest running shape-shifing acts, that cannot be bound into a single genre (or a couple of them for that matter), FORGOTTEN SILENCE. They will play a special „THOTS“ album set!
But we are not done yet with the lineup! You can still expect the announcement of the KAL stage artists and of Tuesday’s warm-up party! Additionally, in the upcoming week we will release the schedule of the bands for each festival day!
Finally, we would like to remind all of you, who haven’t bought your tickets yet, that we have far exceeded the 80% of sold tickets, so you should not hesitate to get the last available ones!
