Suicidal Angels Posts MetalFest Recap and Videos

Greek thrashers Suicidal Angels just finished their MetalFest dates. Very excited about the whole experience, the band has posted a glowing tour recap as well as a video from the Swiss MetalFest stop. The video is below, and the complete recap is after the jump.

"Back from our first headline tour, with lots of new experience, new friends and (hopefully) new fans. From the very beginning, we knew that this was going to be an underground tour, bands that are not known to the masses ranging from Cauldron's retro yet honest heavy metal, to Steelwing's NWOBHM and Enforcer's hard rock. Playing in small venues all over central Europe, we came close to some die-hard fans of ours and met old friends. We enjoyed every single one gig, from the 1st of May up to the 12th, not one show we didn't like.

Following up, 3 Metalfests (Germany, Austria & Switzerland) where we met our good friends and probably the best metal band to ever come out of Greece, Rotting Christ. We also caught up with old acquaintances, the heaviest band of all times, Bolt Thrower. Where one would think that these guys (and gal) are hard to reach, there they come with a big smile and their hard-to-catch-up English to greet you warmly. "Nice fellas", as they would say.

Our first show in Metalfest Germany was the one we were nervous about. It was the biggest stage we had ever played and that troubled us for a while, but only until we saw the crowd (you guys) banging your heads like there was no tomorrow.

Second Metalfest, Austria. No that was a dirty one... One hour of rain was enough to turn the ground into a big lake of mud! It was still raining when we got on stage, therefore we were weary of electroshocks and the slippery stage. Thank all of you who were there to support and root for us, despite the rain and the mud and all the crap that was going on that day.

Last Metalfest, Helvetia. We know we are playing the indoor stage, Z7. We know the place, we know the crew that works there, we love. We have a feeling that it's gonna be our best show ever. And it is... The moment we strum the first open chord, you are all screaming your lungs out! What followed is just pure violence... Walls of death, moshpits, relentless head banging. Honestly and truly, the perfect show to end a tour.

We would like to thank all our old and new friends, our dedicated crew, our sound engineer, Rotting Christ, Bolt Thrower, Nevermore for their kind words and support, the crew of each venue we performed at (especially the one of Z7), Bernd and the Skullcrushers for supporting us in Essen, Matthias, Chris Jason and Ian of Cauldron, Steelwing, Enforcer, all the local bands that supported our gigs, and last (but not least), you, the fans, for making this possible and worth bearing.

Thank you!

Suicidal Angels"
