ROCKHARZ Open Air announced 6 more bands to the already existing bill. Without any doubt this year’s lineup is turning out to be the best so far. Here goes the new list:
Number one: POWERWOLF!
According to legend, the band was founded by brothers “Matthew Greywolf” and “Charles Greywolf” in 2003. Anyway, at the latest after their sensational number one album “Preachers of the Night”, the Power Metallers from Saarbrücken are one of German metal scene’s top acts. They pampered your eares in 2014 last, now they return with their next chart success “Blessed & Possessed”. Amen & Attack!
This time it shall happen: SOILWORK!
They wanted to come twice, but twice things got in between us and them. But as is well-known, all good things come in threes, and in 2016 it shall become! One of THE Swedisch Melodic Death Metal heroes will come to the Harz mountains, and they will bring their current album “The Ride Majestic” – SOILWORK!
The SUICIDAL ANGELS will be part of it, too!
It’s time to get a refreshment lecture in headbanging – ’cause otherwise, it will be painful for your necks. The guys from Athens have been around for almost 15 years and with their latest album “Divide and Conquer” (2014) they proved again that their Thrash Metal is on the highest possible technical level, but not without exuding that legendary 80s flair. Ladies and Gentlemen, SUICIDAL ANGELS!
Also the SPIRITUAL BEGGARS are going to come to Harz mountains!
An allstar band that lives up to its name! Founded in 1991 by one of the most important metal guitarists, the Swedes’ Heavy Rock/Stoner Metal is a very special treat. Get ready for Arch Enemy founder Michael Amott (ex-Carcass), Witt (Grand Magus), Sharlee D’Angelo (Arch Enemy, ex-Mercyful Fate), Per Wilberg (ex-Opeth) and Apollo Papathanasio (ex-Firewind): the SPIRITUAL BEGGARS are coming!
The way is led by: ENSIFERUM
The sword swinging men from Finland hit the German album charts on #15 again in 2015 with “One Man Army”. In 2016 they set the sails, to clink the glasses for their next triumphal procession. Up the met filled horns: ENSIFERUM!
Heads will roll when FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE enter the stage!
Founded in 2007, the quintet took off their status as newcomer as quick as a flash and their name was on everyone’s lips. Nowdays, the Italians let the hairs rotate worldwide. In the end of February, the next strike of symphonic influenced Tech Death, “King”, will be released. For the first time on ROCKHARZ: FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE!
When we did our band poll, one name appeared over and over again, and so here they finally are: HELDMASCHINE!
Founded in 2008, HELDMASCHINE don’t need to hide on the NDH dancefloor. On their current album “Lügen”, the band has definitely said good-bye to all genre borders and offers an unexpected sound scope. We don’t want to withhold this first-class spectacle of NDH, Industrial/Electro, and “Hard German Rock” from you – HELDMASCHINE!
