Sabaton Announces "Sabaton Open Air"

Swedish heavy metal band Sabaton just announced a new and very special kind of festival: the Sabaton Open Air / Rockstad:Falun festival in the band's hometown Falun, the Sabaton Cruise on the Baltic Sea, and now there is also Sabaton Open Air / Noch ein Bier Fest in Germany.

For a long time Sabaton has had the plans for doing a special and totally unique event in Germany and that will become reality now. In July the group will organize the new Sabaton Open Air - a headline concert where people will surely get a unique show.

For this concert Sabaton has chosen the stunning Amphitheatre in Gelsenkirchen (famous from Rock Hard Festival) and as support on this show will be Powerwolf and Korpiklaani as well as former band mates in Civil War.

Bassist Pär Sundström comments: “In 2008 we organized ‘One more beer party’ in Essen in Germany as a release party for ‘Art of War.’ Since then the idea has existed of doing something similar. Now, seven years later, all pieces have fallen into position and we are ready. There will be a lot of ‘Noch ein Bier’ that night!” More...

Enslaved And Pro-Pain Added To Bloodstock

Feeling the winter chill creeping in? Bloodstock to the rescue then, with three more bands announced to get you hot under the collar.

Norwegian extremists Enslaved are added to Bloodstock’s Main Stage next summer. With a new album due in March 2015 via Nuclear Blast, expect to bang your head to some brand new tunes. Guitarist Ivar Bjørnson states:

“We’ve been to Bloodstock once before in 2009, and not only did we understand then why it has become the most important UK Metal festival – but it has grown to mammoth-proportions since. In sum; what an absolute pleasure and honour to be invited back. We like to think that we too have developed somewhat; having a few new, pretty awesome albums and world tours under our (over-stretched) belts. We can’t wait to come and show the Bloodstock crowd what we’ve been up to. To quote one of our spiritual beacons; General Melchett: 'If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.'"

Hailing from the frozen wilds of Finland, folk metal six-piece Korpiklaani is set to join the fray in a UK exclusive appearance. Guitarist Country Cane tells us; "After having great fun and sold out shows ?with our good friends in Sabaton and TÝR, we are excited to be back in the UK to play Bloodstock in 2015. We plan to return and get the crowds singing and dancing Korpiklaani style on our next rock n roll adventure.” More...
