Warm-Up Show on May 24th has been announced!
"Before riding into battle for a whole weekend, we are going to have a proper celebration, a chance to sharpen our swords, down a few litres of fermented beverages and discuss the state of heavy
metal music in 2018. What better witness to its rather healthy condition than standard bearers of Finnish steel Chevalier - FIN, who took the world by storm in shortly more than a yea@s time, dropping three gems in the form of two EPs and a split with countrymen Legionnaire. A slightly darker bastard son of Judas Priest, Agent Steel, early Helloween, Brocas Helm and Sortilege, these Finns have the power and the melodies to leave their mark for years to come. One of the most exciting bands around at the moment, mark our words!
A stark contrast to the magnificent, elegiac and sorrowful doom lamentation offered by Italy´s MESSA, whose second full-lenght „Feast for Water“ has just been released on Aural Music.
Expanding on the dark palette of sound of their first offering, „Belfry“, they add more gloom and experimental textures, even lapping on the dark jazzy shores of Bohren & Der Club of Gore before plunging again into the abyss, dragged on by the beautiful voice of singer Sara. Touring together with hardcore/sludge/black metal outfit Discomfort, they will make for an especially tasty package and a proper introduction to Wolf City Fest!
