The following 7 bands will perform on two stages: Slipknot, Max and Iggor Cavalera (of Sepultura fame), Raised Fist, Avatar, Hardcore Superstar, Bombus and Nerved.
D-A-D will 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.
I played with Max Martin in the band It’s Alive, Jocke Björkegren (guitar) says. Max was one of the songwriters and to be honest Leila K is a rock star, one of the few we have in Sweden. Both Max and she are great personalities.
Nerved – the “Rammstein of Dalarna” – released “Leave It All Behind” last year
All in all, Nerved delivers a stabile and capable set but somethings missing. I had quite high hopes on this show but it never delivered on my expectations.
“Silence” was supposed to be on our last album, says guitarist and songwriter Marcus Hanser, adding that it may be the song that best represents their sound.
Sure thing, the music doesn’t sound like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden or Slayer anymore (besides the retro bands). The reunions are becoming a parody and you seem to need more oxygen masks than cops on Sweden Rock Festivals. But guess what, heavy metal is not a formula – it is a way of thinking and living. And it’s alive and kicking.
It was a close call. It could have been a very sad ending to this story. But Petra, her beloved ones and we as a band got lucky this time. Life goes on – we are blessed. But also filled with inspiration for new songs. No ballads this time though.
Through the announcement of Candlemass, the festival has now completed their final line-up! The line-up now also features Liv Sin, Kardinal Sin, Frozen Crown, PreHistoric Animals, Rave The Reqviem, Billion Dollar Babies and Gaupa.
Northtale (led by former members of Twilight Force, Dirkschneider and Circle II Circle) are a band that intends to bring back the same feeling they had as young fans of traditional Power Metal from the 80s and 90s. Catchy melodies, fast paced rhythm sections, virtuoso-style lead sections and lyrical themes that deal with self empowerment, self improvement and real world, day to day subjects. Northtale was founded at Sabaton Open Air 2017 when Falun native and vocalist Christian Eriksson met American/Brazilian lead guitarist Bill Hudson.
