As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, the re-united Mercyful Fate will perform at this year’s Copenhell Festival in their native Denmark. Copenhell has now announced 23 further bands from all hard and heavy music genres for all that will step through the gates of hell this June.
Gojira played at Copenhell in 2015 and will return this summer. Mastodon and Meshuggah were there back in 2012 and they will also return this year – hopefully with new material from their upcoming releases on their setlists. The metal maestro Devin Townsend will visit the festival for the very first time with his wild and experimental music.
The Danish rock band D-A-D will also hit Copenhell with full force this year – and with an exciting twist! For the first time in the band’s long and proud career, they will play a ‘By Request’ concert where the festival’s audience chooses the setlist: From March 6 until April 6, you will be able to vote for the songs from the band’s impressive catalogue that you think should be among the 16 songs performed during their concert. You can look forward to a Copenhell-exclusive rock blast with one of Denmark’s greatest and most important rock bands ever on a Friday evening where Danish bands will close all the festival’s four music stages!
Bad Religion, Agnostic Front, Dog Eat Dog Play hard and heavy music with a punk vibe, while Death To All and Sacred Reich serve up old school thrash and death, and Redwood Hill and Nyredolk deliver dirty black metal. Chelsea Grin, Soen, Withering Surface, The Raven Age, Søren Andersen, Svartsot, Ghost Iris, Thundermother, Ivy Crown, Lifesick and Nerved will take us through everything from deathcore and progressive metal to hard rock and folk metal.
All previously announced bands can be seen along with more information about all the new bands in the official Copenhell app and at copenhell.dk.
