METALCAMP 2012 – MACHINE HEAD confirmed!

METALCAMP: The most beautiful festival in whole of Europe
MACHINE HEAD
With their seventh album “Unto The Locust”, MACHINE HEAD have fans and critics from around the globe swarming around them to witness the game-changing aural destruction that they are set to unleash. "'Locust' is a metaphor. Locusts fly in a swarm, but they can't control which direction they fly; they float on the wind, they land, cause massive destruction, and then float away on the wind to leave you in the aftermath. It is is a metaphor for a type of person that sometimes comes into your life and has a similar effect." says Robb Flynn. Unlike the titular insect which is prone to flying directionless, unable to control its flight, MACHINE HEAD has been on a steady and well-earned ascent for the better part of a decade. From their recent Grammy nomination to being hand-picked to open for Metallica in both the U.S. and Europe for a six month stretch, MACHINE HEAD's record sales and tour numbers continue to grow even in the face of a crumbling music business. "It feels like the culmination of what we've been doing for the last 17 years: power grooves, patented Machine Head harmonics, crushing guitars and dark melodies, but taken to a new level!” Boy, he is so right.
MACHINE HEAD have become an invincible force which is clearly to be seen when they enter the stage, bound to devastate the entire place. We are very happy to present MACHINE HEAD to you at METALCAMP 2012!
So far these bands have been confirmed for 2012:

MACHINE HEAD
AMON AMARTH
SABATON
PARADISE LOST
KATAKLYSM
ELUVEITIE
PAIN
KORPIKLAANI
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER

METALCAMP 2012 – SABATON, PARADISE LOST, KATAKLYSM, KORPIKLAANI and HEATHEN confirmed! Ticket pre-sale has started!

METALCAMP: The most beautiful festival in whole of Europe

What the event last year has pointed to already, Metalcamp 2011 has proven. METALCAMP in Tolmin/Slovenia has doubtlessly become THE festival in Europe with the most beautiful location there is. It`s also the first festival offering musical program and entertainment for a whole week.

Headbanger´s Holidays is METALCAMP´s motto and credo – an indeed nice, comfortable and truely unique atmosphere with summer and vacation vibe. Can´t ask for more!

Nowhere else you can so easily and nicely relax, swim, sun bath, drink and hang out and bang your head a few hundred meters away than at METALCAMP Slovenia!

So far these bands have been confirmed for 2012:

SABATON
Be sure, for the upcoming year of 2012 the state of emergency at METALCAMP is definitely preprogrammed: Panzer-battallion SABATON already prepares for a new military operation code-named “Hell Over Paradise“, which won’t give the metal-fans time for relaxing and sun-bathing, but which will take them on a trip through past battles. During the last years the Swedish heroes of war collected innumerable medals of success and finally occupy the top of the whole European metal-scene. SABATON’s bombastic power-metal-hymns, which are characterized by hard guitar-sounds, vivid melodies and epochal choirs, obviously represent the true sound of glory. With songs like “Uprising”, “Ghost Division”, “Attero Dominatus” or “Primo Victoria” these metal-warriors awake hot-blooded emotions and dreadful imaginations of war in all of us, always setting our teeth on edge. Look forward to heavy-metal-dynamite SABATON, which will detonate at your headbanger’s holidays 2012.

PARADISE LOST
After celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2008 with the release of their much praised live DVD/2CD "The Anatomy Of Melancholy", as well as exclusive live shows surrounding this event with Anathema and My Dying Bride, PARADISE LOST now return with the highly anticipated follow-up to 2007’s "In Requiem": the brand new studio album "Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us". 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. "Faith Divides Us – Death Unites Us" easily and proudly continues this successful tradition and clearly points out that PARADISE LOST are one of the few outstanding acts working hard and earning their legendary status by the power of the song. A true highlight to look forward to at METALCAMP 2012!

KATAKLYSM
Canadian Death Metal lunatics KATAKLYSM strike back with a tremendous deathlead-assault and overrun their supporters with an extreme venomenous sound-mixture, which is strongly oriented on the band‘s roots. „Heaven‘s Venom“ is the title of the brandnew killer-opus, which impresses with razorblade-like guitars cutting through your flesh, massive bolts of bass chopping your head and ripping multiplex-rhythm. After almost 20 years of bandhistory, frontman Maurizio Iacono and his companions once again illustrate their individual „Northern Hyperblast“-style, which kills in a modern and uninhibited way. KATAKLYSM are and will always be a guarantor for sophisticated death metal, that is moshing through the pits of the earth. Get your neck broken at the KATAKLYSM shows at METALCAMP 2012!


KORPIKLAANI
If you think that there are no reasons to celebrate within the dark metal-spheres, the heavy drinking forest inhabitants of KORPIKLAANI will disabuse you! This hilarious sextet delights with rapid metal combined with a lot of Humppa and other elements of typical Finnish folk music. On their current folk-metal-longplayer titled “Ukon Wacka” these bards care for familiar pagan party-moods and once more reach the top of excess. Sharp guitar-sounds and a wide-ranged diversity of traditional instruments create together a very special relaxed and hearty atmosphere for partying, so you just forget the run of time. KORPIKLAANI will mix a high-percentage folk-cocktail at your headbanger’s holidays 2012, which will definitely strike more than „Vodka“ or „Tequila“!

HEATHEN
Are you ready for a hard lesson in metal-nostalgia? Friends of classical thrash metal get a reason to freak out now: Legendary San Francisco Bay-Area thrashers HEATHEN join the METALCAMP-billing to kick your asses at your headbanger’s holidays 2012. These 80ties-heroes count to the classical bands, who once were responsible for the boom of thrash/speed metal. Their cult-albums “Breaking The Silence” and “Victims Of Deception”, which are featured by musical refinement and virtuoso precision, are still high-ranked within nowadays metal-community. The legendary formation around guitarist Lee Altus gave a true star back to the international bludgeon-scene with their reunion in 2001. Be aware of the retro-thrash-fever, which will gain currency, when HEATHEN perform on MC stage, giving you the rest with classical and brandnew thrash-material!

METALCAMP 2011 – 4 new bands confirmed + today live chat with DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER!

Shortly before the festival starts we are happy to announce 4 more bands, namely CHRISTIAN EPIDEMIC, INFERNAL TENEBRA, KELLER and KREATION KODEX

Welcome to METALCAMP 2011

CHRISTIAN EPIDEMIC

Hungary's leading symphonic black/death horde was formed in 1996. Their debut album emerged in 2000, after two highly acclaimed demos and a very successful self-released EP. In 2001 a long term deal was signed with Nail Records, followed by the release of their breakthrough second album Eltörölt Világ/World Erased. Several tours followed in Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland, sharing stage with some killer bands, like Sodom, Cannibal Corpse, Marduk, Immortal, Kreator etc. End of 2010 they entered the Audioplanet studio in Budapest and recorded another milestone CE album called Pusztitastan/Primordial Soul, which what was released in March 2011 by Nail Records. They debuted their brandnew songs live on Metalfest Hungary and now, armed with relentlessly blackened tracks of anti-liturgical fury, they are ready to show their incredible live power on the prestigious Metalcamp festival!

INFERNAL TENEBRA

Brutally honest, creative and constantly evolving, Croatian based Infernal Tenebra withstood the test of time in the realms of the metal underground. Originating with pure black metal in the eclipse of 1999, adding a death metal foundation in the following years, with two monumental albums "Beneath the Twilight" and "The Essence of Chaos", the band is heading to a new chapter of its journey to hell and back with the upcoming album "New Formed Revelations", currently produced at Fascination Street Studios by Jens Bogren (Katatonia, Paradise Lost, Amon Amarth). Sharing stage and opening for a vast number of metal icons including Exodus, Blind Guardian, Agathodaimon, Pro-pain and Grave Digger the band is extremely passionate to play live shows. With rock solid rhythms, dynamic and technical solos, powerful vocals and the will to concentrate on their music and compositions rather than only perfomance, Infernal Tenebra is the true monument of Croatian metal music.

KELLER

Keller started in early 2008 when drummer Matjaz and guitarist Etien started doing some aggressive stuff, soon after their previous heavy metal band broke up. With the original line up they recorded "Awake The Forgotten" demo, which was accepted very well by the audiences. After a few guitarist changes, they recorded their debut album in 2010, entitled "Spreading Evil" which was also accepted very well by the metal fans. Unfortunately, shortly after spreading evil was released, Etien - one of the founding members of the band - decided to leave Keller behind and start a Heavy metal project. The only original members Martin and Matjaz now move the band full speed ahead with the new line up which just recently had it's debut show ... Be prepared for a full assault at Metalcamp 2011!

KREATION KODEX

Puzzles Of Flesh is the debut album from Slovenian extreme metal outfit Kreation Kodex. On Puzzles Of Flesh, Kreation Kodex have developed mixture of death and black metal, expanded with thrash and gothic elements, strong atmosphere and different male and female vocals. Dive into the kreation khaos and watch their homebase show at METALCAMP 2011!

Come to this year´s METALCAMP to Tolmin in the beautiful country of Slovenia and be there for the ultimate HEADBANGERS HOLIDAYS 2011 from July 11 – 17! Nowhere else you can relax, swim, drink, hang out and only a few meters away bang your head!
