Death To False Metal Festival - promo flyer - Hamden - CT - 2015 - August - MO

Whiplash, Valkyrie, Imperial Triumphant, Krieg, Secrets Of The Sky, Immortal Bird, Godhunter, Secret Cutter, Nightbitch And More Confirmed


This August, the maiden installment of a brand new metal fest will take over Hamden, Connecticut, dubbed DEATH TO FALSE METAL FESTIVAL. Born out of a desire to bring together some of the best touring acts in the world with quality local and regional metal acts, DEATH TO FALSE METAL FESTIVAL hopes to create what we hope will become one of the premiere metal festivals in the US.

Sponsored by Metal Insider and Earsplit PR, the first DEATH TO FALSE METAL gathering is set to take place on Friday, August 14th and Saturday the 15th at The Outer Space & Ballroom in Hamden, just outside of New Haven, Connecticut. Friday night’s lineup will feature thrash legends Whiplash, Valkyrie (Relapse Records), Imperial Triumphant, Nightbitch, Vengeance, and Bedroom Rehab Corporation.

Saturday night will feature USBM stalwarts Krieg (Candlelight Records), Secrets Of The Sky (Metal Blade Records), Immortal Bird, Destroyer Of Light, Godhunter (The Compound Recs/Battleground Records), Secret Cutter, Tomb & Thirst, Grizzlor and Archaic Decapitator.

Tickets for DEATH TO FALSE METAL FESTIVAL go on sale on May 1st at the festival’s Facebook page RIGHT HERE. You can also follow the event on Twitter at @dtfmfestival.

Issues festival curator, Chip McCabe, on the founding of this now annual event, “The name DEATH TO FALSE METAL is actually a bit tongue-in-cheek. The metal scene is littered with way too many people who carry an ‘I’m more underground than you’ attitude, which I find amusing, so the title is dedicated to them. However, the name does reflect that we are looking for a certain aesthetic for the bands that play this festival. Our lineup is fairly eclectic, with thrash, death metal, black metal, doom, grindcore, traditional metal, etc. But we will not stand for generic, cookie-cutter garbage; we want the best of the best, every year.”



8/14/2015 – The Outer Space & Ballroom – Hamden, CT

Israeli, Iranian, Turkish and Arabic bands perform together to promote peace in the Middle East


In 1915 the Battle of Gallipoli wreaked havoc on Çanakkale, Turkey. The brutal war left over 100,000 Australian, European and Turkish soldiers dead in its wake, but resulted in the formation of the Republic of Turkey.

On the 100th anniversary of this carnage, March 28th-29th 2015, rock and metal bands from all corners of the Middle East are coming together at the very battlegrounds to forgo their differences and celebrate their love of heavy music at Persian Rock & Metal Festival.

Featuring headliners Orphaned Land (Israel) and Master of Persia (Iran), as well as a dozen other bands hailing from Dubai, Lebanon, Bulgaria, Turkey, and Georgia. Persian Rock and Metal Festival is defying tenacious governments and making for the truest underground festival in Middle Eastern history.

BLASTFEST Announce Final Bands Including WATAIN

Posted in Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on October 28, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Blastfest - 2015 - February - promo festival flyer - Satyricon

The lineup announcements had to come to an end eventually and Blastfest have now revealed the final 3 bands to the main lineup. But that’s not to say what you see on the burgeoning Blastfest poster is all that’s happening. No, no, no, there will be more!

There’s already a lineup that would bring tears to the eyes of even the toughest metalhead with bands such as Demilich, Satyricon, Decapitated, Paradise Lost, At The Gates & Moonsorrow… and just last week a cruise up the Norwegian fjords with live bands was announced as part of the first days festivities. We still have to hear more… the clinics, the stand up comedy, the exhibitions, and lots more have yet to be revealed!

For now, let’s leave this here… Sweden’s Uppsala upstarts, the black metal powerhouse, the entity of its own who released possibly their best work to date just last year with ‘The Hunt’, yes, the mighty Watain have been announced as another Blastfest 2015 headliner. The festival has also welcomed Austria’s sickest death metal export Schrinec Plays Pungent Stench and Bergens blackened deaththrash horde Grimfist.

Are you sworn to the black? Well, then you’ll be happy to hear that the final Blastfest headliner for the sophomore edition of the festival will be none other than the Swedish legions of the black light, Watain! Prepare yourself for fire, brimstone, and the real deal; carcasses, blood, foul stench and hatred in abundance. Lawless darkness commence!

Schrinec Does Pungent Stench

Blastfest bring you a nice little platter of splatter! Schrinec Does Pungent Stench! They will be playing the twisted material from the Austrian cult band’s first three albums. Basically there’s going to be some proper old school death metal coming your way.

Grimfist - classic band logo - B&W - 2014


Norwegian Grimfist released two highly-acclaimed albums around the turn of the century, and seemed to disappear into obscurity not long after. But lately, they’ve been at it again, flying high the banner of brutality! At Blastfest 2015 they will be doing their first show in eight years with an as-of-yet still undisclosed new lineup. You’re probably in for yet another all-star Norwegian ensemble!


Alfahanne | Aspherium | Asphyx | At The Gates | Baptism | Blood Red Throne | Bolzer | Bömbers | Borknagar | Byfrost | Craft | Crib45 | Cryptopsy | Dark Funeral | Dark Tranquility | Dead To This World | Decapitated | Demilich | Den Saakaldte | Djevelkult | Destroyer 666 | Destruction | Endstille | Esoteric | Falloch | Finntroll | Gehenna | Grimfist | Hecate Enthroned | Impaled Nazarene | Kall | Melechesh | Moonsorrow | Morgoth | Naer Mataron | Orange Goblin | Paradise Lost | Primordial | Purple Hill Witch | Rotting Christ | Samael | Sarke | Sarkom | Satan | Saturnus | Satyricon | Schrinec Plays Pungent Stench | The Sickening | Tortorum | Tsjuder | Vallenfyre | Watain | Winterfylleth | Wyruz

Blastfest - 2015 - promo festival flyer - norway - february

Blastfest has accepted the challenge and has delivered! It is official, Blastfest will be even bigger! With very positive results and excitement of a recent poll, the Bergen, Norway festival have decided 3 days of Metal madness wasn’t enough and have expanded the festival into a 4 day event with a total of 60 bands! That’s 4 days, 4 venues, and 60 bands! Yes. 60 BANDS! The festival is now running from Wednesday February 18th to Saturday February 21st.

And that’s not just the only announcement the festival will make today because just like the recent spate of updates the festival are keeping form and have just confirmed another 4 bands to the already exploding poster! So without further adieu, we are pleased to report the addition of true Norwegian Black Metal veterans Gehenna, British symphonic Back Metallers Hecate Enthroned, Norwegian Death Metal titans Blood Red Throne and death thrashers Wyruz!

Gehenna - promo band pic - 2014 - #10016


All of our grenade prayers have been answered; the word became flesh! It’s with a shivering voice of the utmost excitement that Blastfest welcome Norwegian Black Metallers Gehenna to the lineup of 2015! These purveyors of the dark arts have long been regarded as one of the most important acts to come out of the Norwegian Black Metal scene in the 90’s. It’s therefore with great delight that the festival welcome them back to Bergen for their first ever Blastfest performance.

Hecate Enthroned - promo band pic - 2014 - #4032


Back in the 90’s a band made its way to the forefront of the Symphonic Black Metal scene alongside bands like Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir, receiving praise for their ability to be both extreme in their expression as well as incorporating symphonic elements. We are of course talking about UK act Hecate Enthroned. As of today the band is still going strong, if not turning towards an ever heavier expression with their now Death Metal-infused take on the black arts. Blastfest are very pleased to have them cross the North Sea to perform live in Bergen for the very first time ever, as part of the festival!

Blood Red Throne - promo band pic - 2014 - #4499


If you were asked to name a Norwegian Death Metal band, chances are that the first name to enter into your mind would be that of Blood Red Throne. Ever since the release of their first four-track demo back in 2000, they have been a household name in death metal circles. It’s therefore with great pride that Blastfest welcome the ravenous war machine, the primitive killing machine that is Blood Red Throne into the fold. Be prepared for blood spatter and arterial lust!

Wyruz -  promo band pic - 2014 - #W1320


Some say Blastfest needed to add more Thrash Metal to the lineup, so they have decided to include prime Death/Thrash act Wyruz! These guys have been going strong for over a decade now, and are dead set on destroying everything at Blastfest 2015.
