Dark, forward thinking music with an attitude in one of the world’s most fascinating cultural locations, the legendary, natural Cave of Balve (“Balver Höhle”) in the heart of Germany. Prophecy Productions proudly announce:
Prophecy Fest in the label’s 25th anniversary year is announcing five more acts for the festival’s three days and nights from Thursday, September 9 to Saturday, September 11: DEINE LAKAIEN have agreed to present a special treat – the German dark wave pioneers will present one of their legendary acoustic shows! NEGURĂ BUNGET co-founding member Hupogrammos and Sol Faur, guitar player since 1998, revive their first main band with a once in a lifetime performance. Supported by live musicians from DORDEDUH, the two original songwriters of the Romanian black metal icons will bring material from the first five albums to the cave. Hot German newcomers ST. MICHAEL FRONT have just signed to Auerbach Tonträger and will already deliver their fascinating dark pop mix to Balve. The addition of Italy’s rarely appearing KLIMT 1918 will not just thrill connoisseurs of intelligent indie rock but also delight anybody else who loves melancholic music. And last but never least, German black metal outfit EÏS, formerly known as GEÏST will bring their unique take on darkness to the stage despite being on an official hiatus.
The following bands have previously been confirmed for the billing: EMPYRIUM, DORNENREICH, DOOL, DORDEDUH, and SECRETS OF THE MOON.
Martin Koller comments: “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome five exciting new bands to this year’s festival billing”, enthusesthe label’s founder. “Despite all the difficulties that planning during a global pandemic causes, we are confident to have successfully invited more outstanding acts from across the wide spectrum of dark emotional music that Prophecy Productions and its sister labels stand for. Next to cult act DEINE LAKAIEN, particularly the historic concert that Hupogrammos and Sol Faur have agreed to give by playing their early NEGURĂ BUNGET material with the backing of DORDEDUH members promises to be another once in a lifetime experience at Prophecy Fest.”
Crisis what crisis? Of course, Prophecy Productions are fully aware about the continuing global pandemic, which might still put a spanner into the works of this year’s Prophecy Fest – although the event is scheduled for late summer. Please read below in the “Prophecy Pandemic FAQ” about possible scenarios and measures to ensure the health and safety of visitors, bands, and crew.
