Christmas is just around the corner and W:O:A’s calendar ends soon. W:O:A Crew has confirmed 3 new bands for the Line Up:
After serious health problems and many cancelled shows, Lemmy played at the Black Stage in Wacken last year. But after some songs he had to quit the stage, it was just too much for him. The crowd was worried but also thankful and the “Lemmy! Lemmy” shouts got everyone goose pimples. And Lemmy wants to return! And this means we can now announce: Motörhead. The band is true iconic for the heavy metal scene and especially band leader Lemmy was always regarded as indestructible. The strong new album Aftershock was released a few weeks before and it is already the 22nd Album of the band. And 2014 they will rock Wacken for the 8th time!
Before the feast of love starts, it’s time for the full load of hate! The US American band Hatebreed is going to smash Wacken for the second time. The legendary hardcore formation will bring to their mixture of brute metal riffs, breakdowns and moshparts. Earlier this year, the band released the album The Divinity of Purpose – their 6th album. We’ll see us in the pit!
Stephan Weidner comes back to Wacken! The mastermind of the famous Böhse Onkelz and the connection to the W:O:A is commonly known and because of this he can’t be missed at our Anniversary. Since the Onkelz split up, Weidner is successful with his solo project Der W. Three albums are released so far, the last one, called “III”, in 2012.
