Mayhem – they have been present on the metal stage for 35 years, and their first album, “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” (1994) is considered by many to be one of the most important black metal records.

Candlemass – their name may be a synonymous for epic metal doom. This Swedish group was founded in 1984 and so far released 12 studio albums.

On this record the band was joined by their’s first vocalist, Johan Längqvist.
At The Gates – the precursors of melodic death metal will perform in Poland as part of the tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of the album “Slaughter of the Soul”.
