The Devin Townsend Project gig at BA 2010 edition was hit by a massive thunderstorm, where the heavens have opened up and tons of rain bombarded the stage and the fans. The fans however stayed in front of the stage through the whole storm and together with the band thus created one of the strongest experiences in the history of the festival. And this year THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT shall once again return to our stage and add one more show not to be forgotten!
Swedish TIAMAT will perform a cornerstone of atmospheric metal – for the first time you’ll be able to witness this ultimate festival experience with the Wildhoney album being performed in its entirety. Both WALLS OF JERICHO and their frontwoman Candace Kucsulain should be in the metal dictionary under the entry powerful performance, don’t miss this show out if you wanna see real relentless intensity in action! SWALLOW THE SUN on the other hand are a fine example of the somber doom as trailblazer by Finnish bands. Irish post-rock GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT is also returning to our festival after a great success they had at our fest in the past and it makes certainly pleased that our fans are open minded to welcome bands like them.
Swedes THE CROWN on the other hand would probably have a success on every other metal festival out there and that’s no wonder because they put on a hell of a melodic death thrashing show! BIRDS IN ROW are a French Deathwish inc hardcore punk band, with the label affiliation already giving you an idea about their attitude. We are also proud to have meditative and disharmonic death metal diamond forged by fire and ice – ZHRINE from Iceland on the bill! And in the end we would also like to make the fans of contemporary attitude happy so we are welcoming aboard OCEANS ATE ALASKA and for the hardcore fans we have classic 90’s Long Island hardcore punk with VISION OF DISORDER.
