Due out on March 27th via Napalm Records, The Pendulum features a fine selection of never-before-heard, unused tracks cut from the The Door To Doom recording sessions.
After playing intensive shows over the last 2 years with acts like Paradise Lost, Kreator, Tribulation, Swallow The Sun, Draconian, Rotting Christ, Tiamat and Orphaned Land, Tel Aviv’s TOMORROW’S RAIN have signed to AOP RECORDS and are ready to deliver the band’s debut album “Hollow” later this year. The band has revealed the album will feature an array of guest musicians including Aaron Stainthrope (MY DYING BRIDE), Greg Mackintosh (PARADISE LOST), Jeff Loomis (ARCH ENEMY/NEVERMORE), Fernando Ribeiro (MOONSPELL), Spiros Antoniou (SEPTICFLESH), Sakis Tolis (ROTTING CHRIST), Mikko Kotamaki (SWALLOW THE SUN), Kobi Farhi (ORPHANED LAND), Anders Jacobsson (DRACONIAN), Shlomi Bracha (MASHINA) and Lisa Cuthbert (live session vocalist for THE SISTERS OF MERCY).
Grammy-nominated classic doom icons CANDLEMASS don’t even need to drop a full-length for every release to prove they belong at the top of an entire genre and beyond. Fully comprised of never-before-heard, unused tracks cut from the The Door To Doom recording sessions, the band has just announced the release of a masterful new EP, The Pendulum, due out March 27, 2020 via Napalm Records!
Before bands update, firstly some information for the next 25th anniversary. In near days, there will be new options added to our e-shop regarding the festival services like tribunes, camps, parking, hotels. Now some stuff about the bands.
MYRKUR has canceled the show this year due her late stage pregnancy, but the next year we will withness her for the third time. Hopefully with no issues as the last time when the show was stopped by fire fighters intervention. From black metal waters, can expect faster show of DARK FUNERAL or the other classic, VENOM.
Thrash metal followers will be happy for ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS performing Vulgar display of PANTERA. Other band mostly dwelling in undergroud, while perfroming next to Slayer for example, is Canadian RAZOR.
For some death metal fan‘s satisfaction ASPHYX or interesting NOCTURNUS AD with their keyboard implementation and interesting spacy feeling shall be playing. Even more extreme, WORMROT is going to slay us with their grindcore. With a little additive of death metal, funeral doom EVOKEN will perform.
DESPISED ICON will fill the place with their modern core music and new Purgatory album. ATARI TEENAGE RIOT also joins the festival.
From the home Czech bands, we will see provocative HENTAI CORPORATION with their mix of hardcore, pop, thrash.
