W:O:A Crew has announced, via their Official Webpage, that the Line-Up of the upcoming third edtion of the Hamburg Metal Dayz is taking shape. Besides the already announced bands Edguy, Alpha Tiger, Motorjesus, Tankard and the German hardcore comedian Bembers 6 new bands have been confirmed for the line-up:
Let´s start with Finntroll – the Finnish kings of Humppa. Founded in 1997 the folk metal band has become the spearhead of a whole movement and not only hits like the famous song “Trollhammeren” but also their whole appearance was an essential contribution to this growing fame.
Next on the list is the Danish thrash juggernaut Hatesphere. Since the beginning of this Millenium they are rolling through almost every good festival line-up. Their current album “Murderlust” was released in 2013.
Another band from Finland (this time without Humppa Influences) is Profane Omen. Every Fan of modern thrash & groove metal should risk an ear. It´s worth it!
The modern metal band Defrage comes from Estonia. Since 2011 they are touring throughout Europe without a break. In their homeland they gained a lot of fame and won the MTV Eesti Music Award for the music video for the song “Save Us From Religion”.
With Kryptos we can even confirm a band from India. With classical Heavy Metal influenced by the school of Priest/Sabbath/Maiden they already had an live appearance at Wacken in 2013.
Only Any Given Day don´t have to travel really far to Hamburg. The band from the Ruhr Area in Germany sings about the all daily madness and brings you metalcore at it´s best!
Musicians should look forward to a drum workshop with Heaven Shall Burn Drummer Christian Bass. He will show you all kinds of tricks and wrinkles on the drum kit.
Fantastic worlds will await you during the reading and autograph hour of Wolfgang Hohlbein – Germany´s most famous fantasy author. Everyone knows that Heavy Metal and Fantasy perfectly fit together and also Hohlbein which has sold more than 44 million copies of his books is a real metal fan.
Besides that the Hamburg Metal Days provide you with an amazing framework program: Tankard are reading from their autobiography “Life in Beermuda”. During “Fans ask W:O:A” you have the possibility to ask the 2 Wacken promoters Thomas Jensen and Holger Hübner whatever you want about the festival. Further there will be more expert panels about the music business, guitar raffles and autograph hours of every band playing at the Metal Dayz. Because of the great demand there will be again a tattoo artist who will tattoo the W:O:A or Hamburg Metal Dayz logo – for free!
Stay tuned – More info about the Hamburg Metal Dayz will follow soon.
