Why Paradox are not booked is reasoned by the fact that our native concert agencies and festival-bookers for what reason always, shows no interest into Paradox.
"They still ignore us. Their business runs among themselves and we belongs not to the family. Therefore play also in all regularity same bands on the bigger festivals. It is not because of us that Paradox gets to see so rare. We want to give concerts, but nobody of them give us a chance. If you want to see us playing live, then please write to the magazines, which meanwhile already call Paradox as Germany`s most underrated band or to the forums of the festival sites.

The show will be headlined by Sodom and include performances from Destruction, Tankard, Assassin, Darkness, Holy Moses, Paradox, The Protectors, Blackfire and Wortmord. A message from Destruction mainman Schmier reads as follows:
"If this phone call would have happened earlier, all this painful confusion would have never taken place. Sodom and Destruction have both been on tour lately, I guess that did lead to a couple of misunderstandings that are all solved now.
"There was never any intention to argue about this event in any case! Tom and myself have a friendship since 25 years. The lack of communication via third parties did lead to some turbulent misinterpreting.
"I would like to point out, that we have moved our North American anniversary tour to play at this event. It was always very important to us. We have confirmed our participation already in late 2008. As some may remember, Chris toured with us before on the Eternal Devastation tour in 1986 when our drummer Tommy left the band. Since that day we were real mates! More...
