Metalcamp - Bands so far

+++ Confirmed bands for 2010 +++

Here is a list of the currently confirmed bands for Metalcamp 2010, with a short description of each.

> Overkill
Another glorious thrash-metal-legend awaits you on your headbanger's holidays: OVERKILL! The "Wrecking Crew" from New Jersey still holds the reins of the thrash-spirit in their hands and returns on stage to demonstrate the metal-world that the status of being a cult-band is not only depending on having a fat band-history or -discography. So, put on your metal-jackets and bang your heads, because OVERKILL still knows how to split your brains!

> Cannibal Corpse
A succulent-fresh prey is waiting for all "blood & gore"-loving death-metal-lunatics at METALCAMP 2010. The cult-slaughterers from the shady areas of Florida will certainly release their cannibal lust during your headbanger's holidays and provide you with US-death at its best, too. Do not forget to bring your chainsaw for this upcoming Corpse-moshpit, which will boil your blood.

> Suicidal Angels
Thrash Till Death And Then Some! Hailing from Greece, the newcomers of thrash metal, who gained the Rock The Nation Award 2009, come to METALCAMP to desecrate your headbanger's holidays. After signing with Nuclear Blast, the band releases their debut-album "Sanctify The Darkness" these days. This unholy quartet will exert thrash metal in its pure culture till the last angel falls from heaven!

> Sonata Arctica
Today the band belongs to the most important artists of the international melodic, power metal scene and their latest masterpiece titled "The Days Of Grays" seems to earn another successful breakthrough. The recipe of their success is based on a very special mixture: Solid metal-hymns with powerful chorus combined with smart melodies in consideration of filigree technique. A speciality for metallic souls!

> Aceldama
The Birmingham based, Aceldama, were formed in 2005 with the ideology of producing songs which ‘incorporate brutal, pinch harmonic grooves, with atmospheric harmonies and infectious hooks.' With an energetic performance, prominent audience interaction and a powerful stage presence, Aceldama is an act that won't be forgotten easily.

> Lujuria
La Nueva Ola del Metal Latino (The New Vawe Of Latin Metal) travels to Tolmin, Slovenia. The language they sing in is Spanish but in the end there is one language which unites all those who read these lines: ROCK and METAL. They'll show the world how real metal sounds in Spanish. Meet the conquistadors of pure metal at MC10

> Demonical
Swedish hellfire, with a mission to return to the roots of death metal and deliver a sheer dose of darkness and brutality. In 2010 they will spread the mayhem all over the METAL CAMP. Beware - Demonical horde is coming!

> Enochian Theory
Enochian Theory are gaining more and more reputation with their music, crossing various genres. The aim of pushing themselves as musicians and expanding their sound further creates an even more epic addition to their already impressive reportoire.
Do enforce the theory at METAL CAMP 2010.

> Omega Lithium
Hailing from the darkest underground - scene of croatia, OMEGA LITHIUM released their debut - album titled "Dreams In Formaline" via Drakkar Records and turned out to be one of the most hopeful newcomers in gothic/industrial metal. Dramatic, melanholic and with a wide sense for dark emotions, female singer Mya Mortensen and her dark lord create an extravagant, scary atmosphere. Omega Lithium will breathe a necessary waft of icy air into yout headbanger's holidays.

> Korpiklaani
What would be a Humpaa-Party without KORPIKLAANI? The "forest inhabitants" live in close touch with northern nature and play folk metal with traditional instruments such as accordion, violin, flute and Jouhikko (a typical instrument of Finnish folklore). This marvellous combination grants a wild celebration including traditional Finnish flair. So there still stays only one thought: "Vodka!"

> Epica
Indomitable passion is leading every single symphonic/gothic metal opus of EPICA, who have climbed the top of this genre with their latest album "Design Your Universe". Simone Simons and her fellows create a cold, poignant blizzard of melancholic empathy and overwhelming bombast. EPICA break through the borders of gothic metal with straightforward brutality as well as supple silkiness.

> Insision
The Swedish horde stands for brutal death metal, which forces you down on your knees unmercifully. A whole plant of steel is spinning around ? strongly related to the sound of bands like Suffocation, Monstrsity and Deranged ? and is rushing over the typical Swedish metal tradition. INSISION invokes the depth of the underground and do not leave anything unharmed.

> IMMORTAL
"Immortal performed at the Metalcamp festival in Slovenia in 2007 as part of the 7 Dates Of Blashyrkh tour. The show was amazing and next year we will return to Tolmin to headline Metal Camp 2010 as exclusive performance for Slovenia, Austria and Croatia! See you all there!"
Abbath, Horgh, Apollyon, Demonaz

> BEHEMOTH
With the release of its brand-new album "Evangelion", the Polish extreme-metal-elite BEHEMOTH has sounded the bell for a new chapter and a new era of occult-futurism in death-metal-style. Nergal, Orion and Inferno return to the front and show the whole metal-world, who the true kings of darkness are. Regarding your wishes, BEHEMOTH will desecrate this year's metal stage again.

> ENSIFERUM
The five-head-swordmasters are well-known for speeding metal and timeless-epic folk-anthems in the tradition of Nordic culture. So, the brave warriors of ENSIFERUM turn the MC festival-area to the true celebrating place of Valhalla.

> LEAVES' EYES
With a magic voice and elegiac sound-imageries, Liv Kristine and her clan turn the wheel of time to run course towards Northern Europe's pre-Christian past. Pathetic melancholy and dark Viking-romance are shining in a fresh glamour within the musical interpretations of LEAVE'S EYES. If you're striving to the necessary "Nordic spirit", you will find the appropriate ice-diamond with this band.

> EQUILIBRIUM
Coming from Munich, the five-head-heroes of EQUILIBRIUM, who have devoted themselves to melodic folk-metal, will bring some Bavarian pagan-magic to Slovenia and they are already prepared to occupy METALCAMP 2010. On "Sagas", the current release, the band leads you into a secret fantasy-world powerfully and hard, but also playfully and empathetically. Join this journey!

> DORNENREICH
The dark poets Eviga and Inve are well-known for their individual style, which is settled somewhere in the intersection of black metal, ambient- and folk-music. DORNENREICH embody sophisticated, literary ability implemented properly to the task and consequently gives you the creeps. For sure, this group belongs to the most significant Austrian artists.

> METSATÖLL
METSATÖLL take a bow with their extraordinary style of music to the cultural tradition of Estonia: Full heavy metal power in the vein of Baltic music-guilds. Humorous, but honest, the quartet attaches value to its own roots reflecting in its musical work.

> THE EXPLOITED
The punk-rock-crooks of THE EXPLOITED must not be absent if the party starts to run. They are the incorrigible cult-heroes of their guild and are famous for their important and genial status of pioneer for the current punk and metal scene. Their revolutionary and implacable ruction-hymns haven't lost their tremendous intensity and flavour and still typify the true nasty punk-spirit. Without compromise and totally chaotic - what a hammer!

> KALMAH
KALMAH from Finland will lead you through the swamps of the North. Be prepared for a melodic death metal highlight at METALCAMP 2010.

> SABATON
Get the right, martial kick from the Swedish camouflage-freaks of SABATON, who are still involved in a bombast-conflict on the heavy-metal- front with their current release „The Art Of War".

> HEIDEVOLK
Characterized by the heathen spirit, the pagan/folk metallers of HEIDEVOLK start their march from the Netherlands to METALCAMP 2010. Heavily armed with sword, shield and drinking horns, the hot-blooded horde is wandering from the North to South for breathing in the Northern winds on your headbanger's holidays.

> THE DEVIL'S BLOOD
Boiling-hot rock'n'roll/doom metal, which is curling like viscous lava through the dark sewers of the Netherlands.This obsessed ritual-project doesn't stop at nobody and nothing and must not be missed for any occult celebration. THE DEVIL'S BLOOD can qualify themselves justifiably to be the true descendant of the 70ies-cult-act Coven. At METALCAMP 2010 the combo will continue their black-magic-incantation! Get bewitched...

> ABSTINENZ
Novesian Black Metal! This 3 words stands since 2001 for the black brigarde of ABSTINENZ. The 4 Knights Herjan, Runar, Shaggnar and Havoc are an absolut must for every melodic black/viking/pagan metal fan. After their "Altes Blut" show on Metalcamp 2008, ABSTINENZ presents 2010 their brandnew 2nd full lenght album which will be realased this winter.
Don't miss it!
