HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL – HISTORY:
The Heavy Sound Festival was a Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Festival back in the ’80s. The first edition took place in Bruges (Belgium), in 1983. The 2nd & 3rd moved to Poperinge for ’84 and ’85.
Bands – 1st edition:
Ostrogoth, Killer, Golden Earring, Viva, Baron Rojo, Warning, Uriah heep, Gary Moore…
Bands 2nd edition:
Motorhead, Twisted Sister, Metallica, H-bomb, Faithful Breath, Mercyful Fate, Lita Ford
Bands 3rd edition:
Pretty Maids, Slayer, UFO, Lee Aaron, Tokyo Blade, Warlock, Crossfire…
The festival was all about giving new upcoming bands the chance to be heard and some of them made it pretty far!
In 1985 there were some complaints about vandalism, never knew if this was true or just a rumor. Anyhow, the organizers thought it was better to just leave it as it was and stopped organizing the event.
It’s official that the heavy sound is totally back, with a new organization and the crew of the previous editions!!
John Gallagher – Bass Guitar, Vocals
Mark Gallagher – Guitar, backing vocals
Joe Hasselvander – Drums
