Wacken - Band confirmations

PARADISE LOST

We are very excited to be able to announce Paradise Lost for Wacken Open Air. The festival exists since 1990 when Paradise Lost also released their first album “Lost Paradise”. Now, 22 years later, it comes together. The legends of Doom/Gothic Metal will play the world´s biggest Heavy Metal festival.
Since their conception in 1988, PARADISE LOST have not only founded the genre gothic metal with 1991’s "Gothic", but also diligently defined and daringly transcended it. From the crawling, harrowing doom of their debut "Lost Paradise" (1990) to the electronic sounds of "One Second" (1997) over to the dark rocking punch of "Paradise Lost" (2005), the band’s entire career has been accompanied by the desire to evolve and stay ahead of musical trends and fashions.
At W:O:A 2012, Paradise Lost will perform a “Best Of…” Set out of their 12 studio albums and 23 years of band history. Be prepared for this dark, doom and spherical experience.

DIMMU BORGIR

ONLY EUROPEAN FESTIVAL PERFORMANCE WITH ORCHESTRA & CHOIR

Wacken Open Air - the international heavy metal ritual this festival really has become - will see Dimmu Borgir and orchestra perform in an unholy live symbiosis August 2012 that will wreck the necks of thousands! Are you ready to partake in this rare and special celebration of which the beauty meets the beast?!

WINTERFYLLETH

The English band Winterfylleth is mixing Black Metal with North European Folk and thereby creates a special atmosphere within their music.
Winterfylleth´s songs often are governed by Medieval History, Viking, ghost stories and the beautiful English countryside.

WATAIN

Swedish Black Metal band Watain is confirmed for the next edition of Wacken Open Air .
With their current album “Lawless Darkness”, released via Season Of Mist, Watain will come to the North of Germany in summer next year.

You can look forward to a morbid show at W:O:A 2012.
