No, they are no vampires, but the music these four pale men in black deliver might just put an even more sinister spell on your mortal soul than the curse of the undead…Get your tickets here:billetto.dk/en/e/metal-magic-festival-xiv-tickets-571598www.facebook.com/coffinshakersopen.spotify.com/artist/40MSz9KU6J8HDdfATbQzO2www.discogs.com/artist/1346314-The-Coffinshakers ...

Metal Magic Festival
We welcome back Dark Quarterer to perform their epic & progressive Heavy Metal in Fredericia at Metal Magic Festival -part XIVTickets here:billetto.dk/en/e/metal-magic-festival-xiv-tickets-571598www.darkquarterer.itwww.facebook.com/DarkQuartererdarkquarterer.bandcamp.com/www.instagram.com/darkquartererwww.youtube.com/channel/UCwpAOXndwN3syJW2U2YFLOAwww.metal-archives.com/bands/dark_quarterer/2502BIOGRAPHY:DARK QUARTERER, the Italian creators of epic/progressive style, started out in 1980, in a Tuscan coastal town named Piombino, however the band's roots date back to the early '70s. Two friends, bassist/vocalist Gianni Nepi and guitarist Fulberto Serena, got together driven by the passion for the contemporary hard and progressive rock music, but it wasn't until 1974 when they were joined by drummer Paolo Ninci, that the new band got a name, OMEGA R (OMEGA ERRE). For several years the trio was honing their craft playing covers of bands like Grand Funk Railroad, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep, Cream, Ten Years After, Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant and Colosseum. It was the band's friend and guru Duccio Marchi who suggested they should start composing their own songs and also came up with the DARK QUARTERER name ("quarterer" being the ancient English word for a man who butchered cattle).Fulberto Serena started bringing ideas, upon which the whole group was building until definitive versions of the songs like "Dark Quarterer", "Lady Scolopendra", "Red Hot Gloves", "The Entity" or "Gates of Hell" (in which the protagonist actually wanted to live and die in the name of evil to dethrone Lucifer in the underworld) were created. In 1985, the band recorded a 9-song demo, which received a very good review in Rockerilla magazine. 1987 saw the release of the band's self-titled debut full-length put out in by Label Service and containing 6 songs known from the demo. In spite of poor sound quality, it received great reviews (it was Claudio Cubito from Rockerilla who called them the originators of the new genre, epic/progressive), and is now considered a cult classic.In 1988, DARK QUARTERER were contacted by Giorgio Mangora (Cobra Records), who offered them the production of a second album. With all expenses covered by the label, "The Etruscan Prophecy", an album heavily influenced by the legends, magical and esoteric tales of their homeland (called Etruria in ancient times), was soon released. But just when it seemed that the group was finally taking off (the album was enthusiastically reviewed by the editor in chief of the German Metal Hammer magazine, who spoke of DQ as the only Italian band composing real heavy metal), Fulberto started having an identity crisis and eventually left the band in 1990.The continuation of the activity without the main songwriter proved very difficult for Gianni and Paolo. Even when, in 1991, they recruited a new guitarist, Sandro Tersetti, whose style was more bluesy (Ritchie Blackmore school), the group seemed at a loss. They wrote and recorded a demo with 4 songs sung in Italian (songs which were later recorded for their third album with English lyrics). It was Gianni who was now responsible for composing most of the music and all the lyrics, but Paolo and Sandro contributed with their ideas. They started finding their way again and wrote new songs in English, which they put out as another demo in 1991. In the same year the band participated in the Festival degli Sconosciuti in Ariccia, with a Led Zeppelin inspired song "Out of Line", winning the contest hands down, which lead to them being invited to take part in a program on RAI 2, playing their music on the national TV.Soon after, a German record label, Inline Music contacted the band and offered them a deal. The third album, "War Tears" was recorded in Hamburg and released on compact disc through Gorgon (Inline Music sub-label) in late 1994. The sound was stunning and the quality of the recording perfect but the group hadn't yet re-established its identity - in fact commercial hits like "Out of Line" were mixed with Black Sabbath inspired pieces like "Nightmare". Bad luck had it the label went bankrupt later on resulting in the album being difficult to find. The band however soldiered on and played many gigs at motorcycle rallies and some metal festivals all over Italy, until Sandro Tersetti decided to leave in 1998.The new crisis didn't last long though - still in 1998 DARK QUARTERER enlisted a then 19 years old guitarist Francesco Sozzi, son of their friend Gino Sozzi, who a few years later became the band's manager. Francesco brought with him new energy, and proved to be in harmony with the rest of the group from the start, combining the style of Fulberto and of Sandro, but still remaining personal. As a result of the communion of ideas and various musical inspirations, the rejuvenated band created their fourth album "Violence", released in 2002 through Italian label Andromeda Relics. The same year also saw the re-release of "The Etruscan Prophecy" on CD and vinyl through Metal Legions (a division of the new Giorgio Mangora's label, Comet Records). In 2003 and 2004 respectively, the band's debut was re-released on CD by Unisound Records and on vinyl by Eat Metal Records.In 2003, keyboard player Francesco Longhi, who had contributed as a guest to "Violence", joined as a full-time member of the band. DARK QUARTERER's live activity soon increased considerably. Their first and the most important show abroad was in April 2004, at the 2nd edition of the revered Keep It True festival in Germany. They shared the stage with many legendary bands from all over the world, including MANILLA ROAD, BLITZKRIEG, ATTACKER, HALLOWEEN, BROCAS HELM and CLOVEN HOOF. This event helped putting them back on the European metal map and opened the gates for invitations to further international festivals.2007 saw the start of DARK QUARTERER's co-operation with Giuliano Mazzardi and his My Graveyard Productions, that first re-issued on CD "War Tears" (and two years later, "The Etruscan Prophecy"). The band was invited to play as a headliner at the 1st edition of Play It Loud! (alongside RAVEN, BLITZKRIEG and others), and at Legends Never Die (alongside STRANA OFFICINA, ADRAMELCH, CRYING STEEL...), both organized by Giuliano.DARK QUARTERER began recording their fifth studio album "Symbols", containing six songs dedicated to as many historical characters with their lives showing most aspects of humans becoming just "symbols": Tutankhamun, Gaius Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan, Jeanne d'Arc, Kunta Kinte and Geronimo. These six scores for a journey through time and emotions saw the light of day in June 2008, released by My Graveyard Productions again.The band continued to conquer the stages, appearing in 2008 at Up the Hammers III festival in Athens (where they played with MANILLA ROAD and OMEN, among others), and in Italy headlining MotorockAs FireFest and MetalItalia On-Stage. 2009 brought more international events: DARK QUARTERER headlined the first editions of Hammer of Doom festival (with THE DEVIL'S BLOOD) and of Malta Doom Metal festival (alongside FORSAKEN, NOMAD SON and others), while in their homeland - Made in Hell fest. That year, they played also a special show at the 19th century theater Teatro dei Concordi, located in a medieval Tuscan hamlet, Campiglia Marittima (Livorno), which was an invitation-only event, filmed for the forthcoming DVD. "Under the Spell" (a two-hour-and-a-half concert) was released on DVD by My Graveyard Productions in January 2010, and as a double live CD in 2012.In January 2010, the band flew to Norway to play at the Metal Merchants II festival (where they shared the stage with OMEN, SLOUGH FEG, TANK...). And in November, they went to Germany to play at Metal Forces XIII (DIAMOND HEAD, BLITZKRIEG...). Between these 2 festivals abroad that year, they played at several national events, including Heavy Metal Night III, 3 Days in Rock, Tuscany International Festival, Rock Inn Somma and Metal Meccanico III. In 2011, there was especially one event worth mentioning: in April, DARK QUARTERER played at the 25th anniversary of the befriended "Loud n' Proud" radio show (on Radio Diffusione Pistoia since 1986), and were joined on the stage by Sandro Tersetti, who performed with them several songs.After these concerts the band dedicated their time to the work in the studio. To celebrate the approaching 25th anniversary of their debut album, they arranged it anew and played in the current line-up. This re-recording is released by My Graveyard Production in September 2012 under the title "Dark Quarterer: XXV Anniversary". In 2013, Shadow Kingdom Records released a double CD package containing the remastered first edition of "Dark Quarterer" album from 1987 together with "Dark Quarterer: XXV Anniversary" as a bonus disc.They came back on stage in 2012, first venturing to Cyprus to play at Power of the Night VII festival (together with PRAYING MANTIS and CLOVEN HOOF, among others) and in October started the promo tour for the anniversary CD. It included three dates abroad: Hammer of Doom V festival in Germany (alongside PENTAGRAM, THE SKULL, DEMON...), a gig in Athens and another one in London (this was the band's first time in the UK). 2013 saw the band traveling to Sweden to play at the 5th edition of the old school metal festival Muskelrock (where they shared the stage with ARIA, NIFLEHEIM and many others) and in October to the island of Malta, to play at the 5th edition of the Malta Doom Metal festival (alongside DOOMSHINE, NOMAD SON and others). In January 2014, DARK QUARTERER traveled again to play in Cyprus, and then co-headlined Play It Doom festival in the north of Italy (with SOLSTICE and a few Italian bands). Apart from several other Italian shows that year, they played in France at Teilia Prog Fest (sharing the stage with VULCAIN, among others), in Denmark at the Metal Magic VI festival (with AURA NOIR, NUNSLAUGHTER and plenty of other old school metal bands), and finally in Austria, headlining Doom Over Vienna IX (sharing the stage with PROCESSION and a few other acts).Meanwhile, the band started working on the new songs. In 2014, during My Graveyard Productions' hiatus, Metal on Metal Records entered the picture, even though the label owners had known the band personally since a long time (Keep It True festival in 2004, to be precise). The friendship had developed over the years and now a new step was taken: they decided to work together and inked a deal in the first days of 2015. Right after that, the band entered the studio (their own Woodstock studios, which is also a private music school Gianni and Paolo had started over a decade earlier), and recorded their new album "Ithaca", all in January.April 2015 saw the release of DARK QUARTERER's sixth full-length album, inspired by a 1911 poem titled "Ithaca" by a Greek poet, Konstantinos Kavafis, which utilized the Homeric return journey of Odysseus to his home island as a metaphor for the journey of life. Stylistically speaking, it's the continuation of the last studio work "Symbols", but widening the sound spectrum towards solutions so far only grazed, and a further growth of a band that has maintained, despite the vicissitudes, that style that makes it so unique.In November 2020 DARK QUARTERER created “Pompei”. Their seventh full-length album inspired to Vesuvius eruption and, consequently, to Pompei destruction has been produced by Cruz del Sur Music Label. It steal his characters from the book of Alberto Angela named “ 3 days of Pompei”.Forzed by pandemic period the occasion to play live are so few but the band is enthusiastic to show “Pompei” during “Metal Magic Festival” in Denmark on 2022 !! ...

Metal Magic Festival
The Italian legends of heavy and doomy Horror Metal Death SS will join the madness in Fredericia next summer at Metal Magic Festival -part XIV!Tickets can be found here: (also announced so far: Pentagram, Blaze Bayley, Heathen, Sadistic Intent, Sijjin, Convulse and more!)billetto.dk/en/e/metal-magic-festival-xiv-tickets-571598www.deathss.com/deathssweb/www.facebook.com/DeathSSofficialwww.instagram.com/deathssofficial/www.reverbnation.com/deathssopen.spotify.com/artist/2G6Jj3r7Uux76wZXsykcht?si=8029vpO0Rq6EDV9h7tjGUg&nd=1www.youtube.com/user/DeathSSofficialwww.metal-archives.com/bands/Death_SS/1111Bio:Italian rock group founded in 1977 by Steve Sylvester with the aim of forming a band that encloses inside of itself all its particular interests for occultism, horror films, erotic comics and rock music, in an original manner. The singer, then just a teenager, decided to apply the concept of “glamor” with a strong visual characterization to five characters inspired by stories of terror, the vampire (the singer), the mummy (the bassist), the wolf man (the drummer) , the zombie (the guitarist) and the phantom of the opera (the keyboard player), animating them with the iconoclastic charge received by the then nascent punk scene, from which to gather the extreme and shocking ideological aspects, developed however musically in a heavy manner. The musicians of the project, in addition to essential musical skills, also had to possess the right attitude and the phisique-du-role to impersonate its characters.From this point of view DEATH SS (literally “in DEATH of Steve Sylvester”, name chosen to mean the symbolic ”death” of the human state of Steve Sylvester (SS) and its rebirth as initiated under the light of Occult, without any political reference in the two “S”), are to be considered as the inventors of that musical phenomenon that a few years later will be known as “Black Metal”. The shocking live-show of the band aroused a great echo in the stagnant national scene of that time, immediately earning to the quintet a reputation of “cult-band”. Starting from a musical carpet of horrifying sound effects, the group, from a stage set up with material stolen by cemeteries (gravestones, human skulls, funeral crowns, etc.), involved the audience in the scene with bloodshed, rotten meat, worms and human bones, while on stage the performers / witches of the band mimiced, completely naked, complex rituals of sexual magic. The extreme life-style of the young formation soon had tragic consequences that led in 1982 to the death of the original bass player and the split of the band, which in the meantime had only recorded some self-produced singles. In 1988 Steve Sylvester refounded the band with new good musicians of the Florentine area and, thanks to a contract with Discomagic, gave to the prints “In DEATH of Steve Sylvester”, the first real studio album of the band (in the previous years it was circulated a bootleg containing demos and live recordings of the first line-up, entitled “the story of Death SS 1977/1984”).Then, with more or less regular expiration, will follow other albums such as “Black Mass”, the live “The Cursed Concert” and “Heavy Demons”, (produced by Sven Conquest, with guest the legendary actor Oliver Reed, and first gold disc of the band, cause it exceeded twenty-five thousand copies sold in its various editions). All the records was marked by a constant qualitative and stylistic evolution and by many revolutions in the line-up, that keeps over the time the only constant presence of the leader Sylvester.After alternating contractual events, the group arrived in 1996 to an agreement with Self Distribution, with whom Steve founded LUCIFER RISING Records, a label that sees him also engaged in the function of artistic director. The first birth of the label was the compilation “Horror music – the best of DEATH SS”, a double collection with unpublished, historical pieces and unobtainable old singles. The following year the group enters the English Academy Studios, where, under the guidance of Mags and Keith Appleton (producers of Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, Anathema, Cradle of Filth, etc.), they record the album “Do what thou wilt “, a sort of concept on the magical-sexual work of the famous” magus “Aleister Crowley, always one of the main inspiration points for the philosophy of Steve Sylvester. In 1999, after the release of the documentary “Night of the living Death SS”, a DVD containing clips and excerpts from the tour just ended, the group moved to Texas at the Tornillo Village Productions, where, together with the producer Neil Kernon (winner of a Grammy and with work experience with Judas Priest, Queen, Bowie, Queensryche, Nevermore etc.) recorded the album “Panic” “, a tribute to the god Pan, god of love, humor and confusion, another step forward in the sound evolution of the band, a disc that also boasts the presence as guest of the legendary Chilean director / poet Alejandro Jodorowsky, the inventor of the “panic theater”.The album and the following tour were a success and at the end of the summer 2001 the band concluded an agreement with the producer team David Shiffman (already with Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, System Of a Down etc.) and Fab. V.Zee Grossi. This collaboration opens a new musical vision to the DEATH SS, whose classic and unmistakable sounds are further enriched with cyber-harsh-punky and nu-metal influences, combined with a very personal euro-goth class. The band then moved to Los Angeles to give birth to the new album called “Humanomalies”, a sort of concept about the world of freaks and human “ugliness”, considered by many their most extreme sound experiment. The band’s next and seventh studio album was titled “The Seventh Seal”, in honor of the same named cult-movie directed by Ingmar Bergman, and was again recorded in Los Angeles.Conceptually it represents the closure of an artistic cycle of the band, a sort of “magic pact” signed by Steve at the beginning of his career and lasted about thirty years, to the celebration of which was released a double anthological DVD packaged in the shape of a coffin (” 1977/2007 – 30 years of Horror Music “) which, through video clips, fragments of concerts, TV appearances, unpublished extracts and spicy backstage, it shows all the fundamental stages of a career dedicated to horror music! A pause period followed, during which the vocalist dedicated himself to new experiments, creating the bands W.O.G.U.E. (acronym for Work of God United Entertainment) with dark-wave 80es sounds, and Sancta Sanctorum, (the latter together with the rhythm section of the first line-up of the DEATH SS), which instead propose a psychedelic and seventies doom rock. At the same time, Steve continues his acting career by participating in the horror movie “Eaters” produced by Uwe Boll, and on the television series “L’Ispettore Coliandro” and “Il commissario REX”, while in November 2011 he released his official biography, “The Necromancer of Rock “, written together with the music writer Gianni Della Cioppa, a book that tells all the background of the period that goes from his adolescence to the split of the first line-up in 1982, and that collects in Italy a great success . DEATH SS continue to exist and to compose new material, part of which destined to be part of the soundtrack of some films such as “The darkest night” by John Morrison and “Fear 3D” by Manetti Bros, and in June 2013 return to the scenes with the new platter “Resurrection”, from the beautiful cover in 70es erotic-horror-comic style , designed by the master Emanuele Taglietti, illustrator of cult comics as Sukia, Zora, Ulula, Cimiteria and Belzeba. A new tour follows, with dates that include the one at the Sweden Rock Fest with Black Sabbath, and the headliner gig at the Metalitalia.com festival (whose video footage was later published on the DVD “The Whole Rite”) ‘, as well as the new live CD and double DVD “Beyond Resurrection”, again with artcover illustrated by Taglietti. In 2017 Steve Sylvester officially joins the Hall of Fame of the legendary Hard Rock Cafè chain, donating one of his stage costumes, while continues to grow the certificates of esteem from musicians and groups from all over the world who declare to have been influenced by DEATH SS.In this regard, two other tribute-albums are released, the quadruple “Terror Tales” and “The Other Face of Evil – An EBM / Neofolk Tribute To Death SS” (a third was already released in 2000), respectively edited by Black Widow Records (October 2018) and EK Product (2019), where about fifty artists from the most diverse musical backgrounds have ventured into the cover-version of many classics of the band. On September 7, 2018 “Rock’N’Roll Armageddon” was released, whose cover was created by Alex Horley (formerly author of covers for Rob Zombie, Gene Simmons and DC Comics). The platter was preceded by a new single and a new video-clip for the title-track. Two other singles and related clips are released the following year for the songs “Madness of Love” and “Hellish Knights”. In 2020, thanks to an agreement with Tsunami Edizioni, a reissue with new cover and photos of the book “The Necromancer of Rock” was published, followed shortly thereafter by a new one, entitled “THE STORY of DEATH SS – 1987-2020” which continued the story, a monumental book of over 500 pages, always written together with the friend Gianni Della Coppa, this time assisted by rock journalist Stefano Ricetti.The global pandemic of Covid 19 inevitably blocks the official activities of the band during the rest of the year, so the band take the opportunity to compose the new songs that will be part of the new album, the tenth of their official discography, which will presumably see the light in the late spring of 2021. Meanwhile Self Distribuzione has started releasing a series of picture-disc reissues of their entire catalog.LINE-UP:Steve Sylvester – VocalsAl DeNoble – GuitarsFreddy Delirio – KeyboardsGlenn Strange – BassMark Lazarus- Drums ...

Having started his professional music career in WOLFSBANE in 1984, he was elevated to global heights when he joined IRON MAIDEN with whom he released two albums ("X-Factor" and "Virtual XI") and toured worldwide between 1994 and 1999. After leaving IRON MAIDEN, Blaze embarked on a solo career, during which he has released ten full-length studio albums, plus live albums, live DVDs and compilations. He's also enjoyed an enviable reputation as one of the hardest working artists touring around. In 2015 Blaze celebrated the 15th anniversary of his first solo release "Silicon Messiah" and then saw a significant worldwide resurgence of interest in his career, not least with the release of the "Infinite Entanglement" trilogy during the period 2016 to 2018. This was followed up with two live offerings - the albums and DVDs "Live In France" and "Live In Czech" (2019 and 2020 respectively).During these recent years Blaze has toured widely in the UK, Europe, North America and Latin America. He’s become particularly recognised as an independent artist dedicated and remarkably connected with his fans, as well as for his unmistakable high energy, no-nonsense, live performances. Blaze joined DISTURBED onstage at the 2016 Download Festival for a rendition of ‘Baba O’Riley’ by THE WHO, was recently accompanied onstage in Poland by Swedish metalheads SABATON for a version of Maiden classic ‘Man On The Edge’ and was voted no.67 in Sweden Rock magazine’s Top One Hundred singers of all time. During the period 2014 to present date, Blaze has benefitted from a settled line-up for his backing band, picked from British melodic metal band ABSOLVA - Christopher Appleton (lead guitar), Martin Mcnee (drums) and Karl Schramm (bass) whilst Luke Appleton (rhythm/lead guitar) of ABSOLVA added when the band plays an Iron Maiden 25th anniversary setlist at selected shows. Blaze and his band have received critical acclaim for outstanding performances, including Sweden Rock Festival, Rock the Coast (Spain), and Headbangers Open Air (Germany). ... See MoreSee Less

The American worshippers of Death Sadistic Intent, will crush Fredericia at next summers Metal Magic Festival -part XIV!!!Tickets here: (+Pentagram, Sijjin and many more TBA!)billetto.dk/en/e/metal-magic-festival-xiv-tickets-571598www.facebook.com/S.I.666official/www.instagram.com/sadistic_intent666/www.metal-archives.com/bands/Sadistic_Intent/1470Sadistic Intent is a Death Metal band formed in 1987 from Los Angeles, California. After a handfull of demos and the tape trading circuit of the late 80's, the band got an international underground following being featured in various fanzines worldwide. In 1990 Sadistic Intent was signed by Wild Rags Records and the "Impending Doom" EP was released. Shortly after that a few tours followed in Mexico as well as the United States. By 1994 the band had changed it's line-up and released the "Resurrection" MCD. With this release the band evolved musically and attracted a new fanbase. That same year the band members opened up an Extreme Metal record shop called Dark Realm Records keeping them busy and in contact with many Metalheads (merchants, bands & fans) from around the world. In 1997 Sadistic Intent released "Ancient Black Earth" and continued to tour in the USA as well as Mexico. After a few pressings of these releases sold out, Iron Pegasus Records (Germany) re-released both these MCD's in one full length titled "Resurection of the Ancient Black Earth", helping to spread the music even more through out Europe and beyond.The band then met Jeff Becerra (original vocalist of Possessed) and recorded "The Exorcist" for a tribute CD. Eventually Jeff asked Sadistic Intent to become the members of the reformed Possessed. Starting in 2007 the band kept busy playing live, when Possessed would get invited to do gigs or festival appearences, so would Sadistic Intent! In late 2010 this collaboration came to an end. In 2012 Sadistic Intent was invited back to Europe for another tour and a couple more festivals!! Then in 2014 Iron Pegasus Records released the "Reawakening Horrid Thoughts" MLP. By this point in time Sadistic Intent had already toured in various countries around the world such as Norway, Brazil, Finland, Mexico, Germany, Chile, Holland, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Greece, Belgium, Australia, Singapore, France and the USA. Never giving into trends, Sadistic Intent continues on it's path of 80's inspired Extreme Metal, crossing over and appealling to the fans of Death/Black/Thrash Metal!!!2016 brings forth the newest recording of Sadistic Intent, this time produced by the legendary Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Cryptic Slaughter, Morbid Angel, D.R.I. etc)! Staying true to the Diehard Metal Cult, Sadistic Intent's dedication and longevity and has earned the band an international following that continues grow...LISTEN HERE:www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLBJkBuFC4Qwww.youtube.com/watch?v=w64G3y7A6z4LIVE VIDEO:www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtKUmytv0uw ...

Sadly Infest Serbia had to cancel their appearance at this summer's Metal Magic Festival -part 13, due to the current traveling restrictions of Serbian citizens.As a replacement we have found the Danish 80's band Evil - band to take their place in the lineup!Evil is a Danish heavy metal band from Copenhagen, Denmark, that was formed in 1982 under the name of Never Mind. The band changed its name to Evil in 1983. The band released their first mini LP back in 1984, the now legendary ‘Evil’s Message’. It was released on the Dutch Rave-On Records, who also released the first mini LP ‘Nuns Have No Fun’ by MERCYFUL FATE back in 1982. Evil was among the first metal bands to define the genre speedmetal back in 1984, by sharp vocals, heavy riffs and Freddie Wolf’s fast and pounding bassdrums. At the time, the band wasn’t presenting the typical heavy metal, but today the band is among the founding fathers of European heavy metal. The band split up back in the mid-eighties and drummer Freddie kept on playing with a bunch of established Danish rock-acts and soloists, but the metal has been there ever since in the background. Evil’s sound anno 2021 is classic heavy metal in the vein of Accept and Judas Priest whom also inspired Evil back in the early eighties..EVIL’s coming… www.facebook.com/evilmetaldk/www.metal-archives.com/bands/Evil/5242 ...

As the last band to be announced for this summer's Metal Magic Festival -part 13, we welcome the brilliantly dark Dead Void!While the members of the young band Dead Void are based in Copenhagen, appearances can deceive; their origins are as diverse as the UK and Norway, and they have experience from bands like Conan, Grave Miasma and Virus. Dead Void play old school doom/death metal or, in their own words, “dark, twisted and fucking heavy Non-Ritualistic Death Metal”. The band recently recorded their debut album at No Master's Voice, to be released on Dark Descent and Me Saco un Ojo later in the year. It's a mind-melter that gets wild, weird and insanely fucking heavy. For lovers of the slow, the deep and the claustrophobic, Dead Void will be well worth a visit.www.facebook.com/TheDeadVoid/deadvoid.bandcamp.com/releaseswww.metal-archives.com/bands/Dead_Void/3540425292*******************************************************************And to those of you who unfortunately did not manage to get your MMF tickets before it was sold out, we cross our fingers that the authorities will reduce the restrictions a bit before the festival, so more of you will get the opportunity to participate! ...

Altar of Oblivion will make you sing along at this summer's Metal Magic Festival -part 13!The short and sterile description of Altar of Oblivion is that they play something between doom and heavy metal. The slightly longer and probably more accurate description is that they play that monumental kind of metal that raises its hands to the heavens in glorious defiance. And when you come to see them at Metal Magic this year, it is likely that you, too, will raise your hands and be swept away by Altar of Oblivion.Altar of Oblivionaltarofoblivion.bandcamp.com/altarofoblivion.dk/open.spotify.com/artist/3UFcowMC0upZB50t80h8Z5www.reverbnation.com/altarofoblivionwww.metal-archives.com/bands/Altar_of_Oblivion/101486 ...

The always magnificent Slægt will also join the party at this summer's Metal Magic Festival -part 13!Copenhagen outfit Slægt have in recent years been hailed as one of the most promising Danish bands with an international outlook. The four-piece have, with great success, been able to fuse the expressiveness of NWOBHM with the atmosphere of black metal, both in terms of their music as well as their stage presence. Despite the young age of the members, Slægt have already amassed a strong and dedicated following on the basis of their critically acclaimed albums like Domus Mysterium and The Wheel, as well as their powerful live performances, the latest of which we’re looking very much forward to at this year’s festival.www.facebook.com/Slaegtslaegt.bandcamp.com/releasesopen.spotify.com/artist/6IisDVoZ1J7CpAc8AF4aU3www.metal-archives.com/bands/Sl%C3%A6gt/3540345218 ...

Rob himself describes his solo music as “just got the sudden urge to write songs in the Johnny Cash style and used my old horror punk lyrics I had lying around”, and we look forward to once again take a relaxing breather while we inhale the thick atmosphere of Rob’s murder ballad performance.www.facebook.com/robcoffinshakeropen.spotify.com/artist/1b5mFWJr6rChRcUel8gbxLtidal.com/browse/artist/4103807 ...

Hadron will bring the heavyness at this summer's Metal Magic Festival -part 13!What metal band isn’t, in some way or another, inspired by mighty Black Sabbath? Well, Hadron from Odense certainly are, and probably a bit more than most. Their doomish heavy metal, with lyrics sung in both English and Danish - as well as their stage show - tips the hat to the masters from Birmingham. But while Iommi and the boys are retired and probably won’t show up at a venue any time soon, if ever again, Hadron are here right now to give you that old school metal experience at Metal Magic this summer.www.facebook.com/hadron.dk/hadrondk.bandcamp.com/www.hadron.dk/soundcloud.com/hadrondkwww.metal-archives.com/bands/Hadron/3540428495 ...

DemonGrinder plays straight-up fast and dirty Rock'n'Roll with various and harder inspirations, although the members have experience from a number of very diverse Danish bands such as Stalker, Bone and Surfing Henchmen. If there’s a demon that needs grinding, or you just need some fast and filthy rock for your Jack D, this Copenhagen quintet’s got you covered.www.facebook.com/dirtydemongrinder/demongrinder.bandcamp.com/releases ...

We are pleased to announce the resurrected death / thrashers Furious Trauma to play this summer's Metal Magic Festival -part 13!Lars Schmidt is an icon of Danish extreme metal; not only for his long tenure as bassist of the death metal band Konkhra, but most certainly also as vocalist, bassist and bandleader of pioneering thrashers Furious Trauma. The band was formed back in 1988, went on hiatus in 2003, but reemerged in 2014 and has been going at it since. Furious Trauma have four albums of blisteringly fierce thrash metal under their belt, including the brand new comeback release Decade of War, which without doubt shows that the trauma is back and ready to reclaim its seat at the forefront of the Danish thrash scene.Furious Traumafurioustrauma.com/www.instagram.com/furious_trauma/www.metal-archives.com/bands/Furious_Trauma/2584 ...
