    Kamelot ( Kamelot (USA) - The Shadow World Tour 25.9.2018 Helsinki ) Kamelot syyskuussa Helsinkiin ja Tampereelle Yhdysvaltalainen progressiivista, sinfonista voimametallia soittava Kamelot saapuu syyskuussa Suomeen. Keikat ovat osa huhtikuussa ilmestyvän The Shadow Theory -albumin maailmanlaajuista julkaisukiertuetta. The Shadow Theory laajentaa Kamelotin soundia. Vuoden 2016 lopusta alkaen työstetty pitkäsoitto yhdistelee suurta, perinteistä äänimaailmaa ja industrial-elementtejä. Sanomaltaan levy on pohdiskeleva: The Shadow Theory käsittelee nykyajan henkeä ja sen ongelmallisuutta. – Maailman tulevaisuus on mielenkiintoisempi ja pelottavampi kuin koskaan. Tämä vastakohta on esillä useissa tulevan levyn biiseissä, kosketinsoittaja Oliver Palotai kertoo. Kamelot on odotettu Suomen-vieras. Viimeksi vuosina 2013 ja 2015 täällä soittanut bändi on nykyisen laulajansa Tommy Karevikin kanssa todella kovassa live-iskussa. Syyskuussa 2018 Suomessa koetaan totaalinen metallielämys.

    Kamelot ( KAMELOT Leaves Eyes Visions of Atlantis at Z7 - Pratteln ) Headliner: KAMELOT INNOVATIVER MELODIC METAL Man kann sie zweifellos als Z7-Stammgäste bezeichnen. Zum dreizehnten Mal seit 1998 gastieren Kamelot in diesem Jahr in der Pratteler Rockfabrik. In den vergangenen zwei Dekaden haben sich die Amerikaner den Ruf als eine der einflussreichsten und innovativsten Melodic Metal Bands weltweit erspielt. Mit dem neuen Album „The Shadow Theory“ (Release: 6. April 2018) und einem neuen Drummer werden Kamelot im September ein weiteres Mal über die heiligen Bretter unseres Rocktempels fegen. Kamelot haben den Release ihres nächsten Studiolangspielers für den kommenden Frühling angekündigt. Die Scheibe mit dem Titel „The Shadow Theory" wurde in Wolfsburg zusammen mit Produzent Sascha Paeth (Rhapsody Of Fire, Eoica, Edguy u.a.) aufgenommen, der schon bei früheren Werken der Band im Studio die Regler bediente. Kamelot-Gitarrist Thomas Youngblood liess kürzlich in einem Interview verlauten, dass sich „The Shadow Theory" musikalisch sowohl an Werken wie „Ghost Opera" (2007), als auch am letzten Output „Haven" (2015) orientieren würde. Ausserdem soll das Album neue Industrial-Elemente in den Klangkosmos der Band integrieren. Illustre Gäste wie Lauren Hart (Once Human) oder Jennifer Haben (Beyond The Black) veredeln die Scheibe mit ihren Gastauftritten. Im Jahr 1991 gegründet, sind Kamelot mit dem Z7 gewachsen. Was sich 1998 als neugierige Ami-Band zum ersten Mal in der Schweiz Gehör verschaffte, wurde zu einem Akt, der in der Dauerrotation auf Viva und MTV Stammgast war und heute nicht mehr aus der Metalszene wegzudenken ist. Im Herbst steht das Quintett nun bereits zum 13. Mal auf der Bühne des Z7. Mit der Zeit haben Kamelot ihren Sound von Scheibe zu Scheibe verfeinert. Fast amerikanisch untypisch, präsentiert sich die Truppe mit europäischem Liedgut, das mit opulenten Orchesterparts einen bombastischen Anstrich erhält. In der Welt des harten Rocks besetzen Kamelot seit einem Vierteljahrhundert eine ganz besondere Position: Ihr raffinierter Melodic Metal hat sich immer schon auffallend geschickt auch artverwandten Spielweisen geöffnet, hat dabei progressive Versatzstücke ebenso integriert wie Querverweise an Doom/Gothic Metal oder Klassik und gerade dadurch ein eigenes Genre begründet. Speziell zwei ihrer erfolgreichsten Veröffentlichungen, Karma (2001) und The Black Halo (2005), sind Paradebeispiele für Vielschichtigkeit, Intensität und überragende Musikalität. Mit ihren letzten Werken „Silverthorn“ (2012) und „Haven“ (2015) hat die Band diesen Standard weiter gesteigert. Die Erwartungen und Hoffnungen für das neue Album „The Shadow Theory“ sind entsprechend gross. Doch, wer Kamelot kennt, weiss dass sie erst ein Album veröffentlichen, wenn auch wirklich alles passt. Und nach dem Release des neuen Werks starten Kamelot wieder voll durch: Im April/Mai sind sie in Nordamerika unterwegs, im Sommer kommen sie für ein paar Festival-Shows nach Europa und im September/Oktober steht die grösste Headliner-Europa-Tour ihrer ganzen Karriere an.

    Amorphis ( Amorphis and Dark Tranquility * Moonspell * Omnium Gatherum ) GET TICKETS AT TREESDALLAS.COM Amorphis Founded 1990 in Helsinki, AMORPHIS have worked their way to the apex of the European metal scene and won international renown. The band's name, derived from "amorphous" (no determinate form or shape), has been programmatic for the pioneers of Finnish metal over the course of their 20-year career. Setting a diverse, intricate and unique style to their musical approach, often being described as "ahead of their time", the band accrued a large and loyal international fan base. From their independently released demo "Disment of Soul" (1991) through the current releases, Amorphis have always fused elements of traditional heavy, death and doom metal with a great variety of non-metal influences, including folk, progressive and psychedelia, and managed to create an instantly recognizable sound of their own. The band's break-through came in 1994 with "Tales From The Thousand Lakes". The album won the band a massive fan base around the world, reaching a multitude of listeners among and beyond the metal community, and remains immensely popular to this day. In the early stages of their career, Amorphis consisted of Tomi Koivusaari (guitarist and original vocalist), Esa Holopainen (guitars), Olli-Pekka Laine (bass), and Jan Rechberger (drums). Together they greatly affected the metal underground, gained recognition and soon scored a multi-album contract with Relapse Records. Shortly after, Amorphis released their debut album, "The Karelian Isthmus". Receiving an impressive response, the band chose to venture further into melodic terrain, adding progressive keyboard sounds here and clean guest vocals (performed by Ville Tuomi of Kyyria) there. The result was the classic "Tales From The Thousand Lakes", which to this day is considered to be one of the most groundbreaking albums in the doom/death genre. For the first time incorporating lyrics from the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala, the album also was the first true manifestation of the influential Amorphis sound: a seamless combination of intoxicating melodies and aggressive sounds delivered with both clean and harsh vocals. The success of "Tales From The Thousand Lakes" provided Amorphis with the opportunity to tour the European continent several times, and followed by their first US tour in late 1994. Shortly thereafter, the band underwent some major musical and line-up changes. Continuing to feature lyrics based on traditional Finnish folk poetry, the third album "Elegy" introduced a new vocalist, Pasi Koskinen. This adjustment proclaimed a significant transformation in Amorphis' career. Pasi's unique vocals brought a new setting to the music, which now concentrated more on compelling keyboard atmospheres, psychedelic guitar sounds and a distinctive arrangement of the vocals, delivered by both Tomi and Pasi. Encouraged by popular and critical approval, the band members took three years to prepare their next album, honing the newfound style to perfection. "Tuonela" was liberally sprinkled with 1970s-style psychedelic touches and marked another great leap ahead for Amorphis, and its successor, "Am Universum" delved even further into progressive soundscapes. In 2003, Amorphis released "Far From The Sun". While closer to the band's metal roots than the previous longplayer, the album was again very relaxed and melodic as ever, spiced with Far Eastern touches as well as progressive elements in the vein of Pink Floyd. In the late summer of 2004, long-time singer Pasi Koskinen left the band, and Tomi Joutsen (Sinisthra) joined around the end of the year. With a new singer and new energy, the band recorded "Eclipse", an acclaimed masterpiece that combined the best-loved elements of Amorphis' unique sound with fresh vigour. The album went straight to the top of the Finnish charts and was followed by triumphant live appearances all over Europe before the band retreated again to the recording studio. "Eclipse" was followed by "Silent Waters" in the late summer of 2007. The dynamic and emotional range of the new songs, all of which were based on a single episode from the Kalevala, went beyond any of Amorphis' earlier albums, yet at the same time hearkened back to the band's past output in all its diversity. The release of the new album was preceded by a string of festival appearances - including Germany's famous Wacken Open Air - and immediately followed by a five-week Finnish tour. The remainder of 2007 found Amorphis in Europe, Russia and Japan, whereas in 2008 they played in southeastern Europe, at a multitude of festivals and, during the fall, in the USA and Canada. The new album "Skyforger" shares the lyrical concept of the two previous albums, its central character being Kalevala blacksmith Ilmarinen. Musically, the band soars to unprecedented heights; not abandoning the cherished ingredients of their sound but rather refining them, augmenting them with fresh elements, and delivering them with breathtaking passion and intensity. Both the album and the single "Silver Bride" went straight to number one in the Finnish charts, and the live qualities of the new songs were immediately tested and proven on the summer's festival stages. In September, Amorphis went on their first-ever tour of Latin America, followed by the extensive Forging Europe Tour in the fall. In the summer of 2010, the band presented its first-ever live DVD, which includes two full shows recorded in 2009 as well as a career-spanning documentary. The release coincided with the 20th anniversary of Amorphis, which in addition was honored by a compilation of re-recorded classic tracks, released in September 2010. Nostalgia, however, is not what this band is about. Granted, The Beginning Of Times (2011) showcases their trademark style in perfection, including plenty of reference to the death metal days, yet at the same time it proves that Amorphis have lost none of their progressive edge and experimental spirit. Doing honor to protagonist Väinämöinen, the Kalevala‘s central character whom myth credits for bringing music into the world, the band brought forth its most versatile and nuanced effort to date; in terms of performance and arrangements as well as rythms and sounds. Iikka Kahri, whose flute and saxophone already graced several songs on Skyforger, was back in the fold, Tomi Koivusaari added a few discreet touches of pedal steel guitar and Santeri balanced the 1970s prog and 1990s death elements with a synth vocabulary straight out of the eighties. More noticeable still was the addition of Netta Dahlberg’s backing vocals, which beautifully complement Tomi Joutsen’s lead - most poignantly on “Mermaid” and “Soothsayer” but also, for example, on the single You I Need. Besides another number one in Finland, The Beginning Of Times also earned Amorphis their first-ever Top 20 rating in Germany. At the outset of the third decade, Amorphis continue their musical journey creative as ever – not confined to any predetermined shape, yet always instantly recognizable, always true to their own vision, and always unique. On August 21, 2012, Amorphis announced on their website that a new album was in the works. On January 17, 2013, the band announced the title and release date for their next record. Circle was released on April 19 in Europe and April 30th in North America. On September 16, 2013, Circle won Metal Hammer´s “The Album of The Year” award. Esa Holopainen on the award, "For us, Album of the Year award is a great recognition for the work done so far. Especially when we got it from our 11th studioalbum." On August 4, 2014, Amorphis announced on their website and through social media that they would be playing a number of special Tales from the Thousand Lakes 20th Anniversary shows where their 1994 album would be performed in its entirety. Tales from the Thousand Lakes 20th Anniversary shows included festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Maryland Deathfest, and 70000 Tons of Metal with many other tour dates and festivals included. The band began demoing new songs at the start of 2015, and in 4 March of that same year, it was announced that Amorphis will begin to record a new in album in April 2015, at Fascination Street Studio, Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren. The lyrics will be written once again by Pekka Kainulainen, who says "Like 'Kalevala', they are descriptions of natural phenomena, seasons and the human mind. Reoccuring situations where hope and uncertainty alternate. Attempting to gain advice from higher powers. The poems do not form a complete story per se, but they are drawn together by a certain theme. We live under a red cloud and once again, time weighs us." The release of the new album will be followed by a world tour, starting with shows in the band's home country of Finland, then other parts of Europe with Nightwish & Arch Enemy in November 2015. In 15 June 2015, it was announced that the title for the twelfth studio full-length album is Under The Red Cloud, with the artwork and tracklist revealed and with a worldwide release date of 4 September 2015 by Nuclear Blast Records. Dark Tranquillity "Damage Done" is the much-anticipated sixth full length album from Gothenburg's own Dark tranquillity, a band that has become an institution within the realms of extreme Metal, seeing that they deserve full credit for originally kicking off the stylistic wave of melodic Death Metal which has become established and frenetically followed all throughout the world in the meantime. During their 13 years of existence, Dark tranquillity have always tried to constantly expand their musical borders and stray away from already-conquered territory, and "Damage Done" is certainly no exception to their own artistic goal, being a truly diverse affair showcasing a host of new approaches and inspirational sources. Compared to the electronically-tinged approach of "Haven" (2000) or the laid-back, lush melancholia of the (Swedish) Grammy-nominated entity "Projector" (1999), "Damage Done" is more technical and intense in feel; a direct and solid sound, yet with lots of complex arrangements and sonic structures emerging from below the surface. While not by any means being a sheepish "back to the roots" album, some of the aggressive aesthetics present in Dark tranquillity's earlier work have resurfaced, giving birth to some faster passages, pounding and inherently catchy throughout. From the relentless thrash-o-rama of opener "Final Resistance" to the sombre closing tones of "Ex Nihilo" (the first instrumental in the band's history), "Damage Done" runs the full gamut and showcases a hungry and confident band that presents absolutely no signs of musical exhaustion or willingness to descend from their position as a leading creative force in the metal scene. Recorded with long term producer Fredrik Nordström at Gothenburg's famous Studio Fredman facilities, the masterfully written and flawlessly executed eleven new creations on "Damage Done" are determined to fully please the passionate melodic Death Metal following as well as bringing new listeners into the very unique and charismatic sound of Dark tranquillity. Watch out for the band to embark on a massive string of tours following the release of this masterpiece of a new album: The damage is done, my friends! Moonspellofficialband MOONSPELL was formed in 1992 from the ashes of Morbid God, a project they started in 1989. After a couple of years of making a name in the underground, they finally got into a bigger crowd with the release of Wolfheart, via Century Media, in 1995. The band started touring intensively, and in 1996 they released their breakthrough LP Irreligious which brought the Portuguese band to the forefront of Gothic Metal. Since then Moonspell has put out nine solid studio releases. Their last album Extinct was number #1 in Portugal and a chartbreaker in many countries, and they have succeeded in celebrating their 25th anniversary on the road, a bit everywhere in the world. Moonspell will release their new album (a concept about Lisbon’s Great Earthquake) via Napalm Records on the 3rd of November. Is their first album totally sung in Portuguese, their native language.

They have announced an Iberian tour for the new album in November 2017 already, and a support tour for Cradle of Filth, starting in January 2018, throughout all of Europe. Omnium Gatherum Hailing from Finland, Omnium Gatherum is a band playing fierce death metal with breathtaking melodies and progressive originality for people in the metal field looking for something different that still is catchy. A band that truly walks it's own path proudly and shows some new exciting sides on identifiable character.

    Dark Tranquillity ( Amorphis and Dark Tranquility * Moonspell * Omnium Gatherum ) GET TICKETS AT TREESDALLAS.COM Amorphis Founded 1990 in Helsinki, AMORPHIS have worked their way to the apex of the European metal scene and won international renown. The band's name, derived from "amorphous" (no determinate form or shape), has been programmatic for the pioneers of Finnish metal over the course of their 20-year career. Setting a diverse, intricate and unique style to their musical approach, often being described as "ahead of their time", the band accrued a large and loyal international fan base. From their independently released demo "Disment of Soul" (1991) through the current releases, Amorphis have always fused elements of traditional heavy, death and doom metal with a great variety of non-metal influences, including folk, progressive and psychedelia, and managed to create an instantly recognizable sound of their own. The band's break-through came in 1994 with "Tales From The Thousand Lakes". The album won the band a massive fan base around the world, reaching a multitude of listeners among and beyond the metal community, and remains immensely popular to this day. In the early stages of their career, Amorphis consisted of Tomi Koivusaari (guitarist and original vocalist), Esa Holopainen (guitars), Olli-Pekka Laine (bass), and Jan Rechberger (drums). Together they greatly affected the metal underground, gained recognition and soon scored a multi-album contract with Relapse Records. Shortly after, Amorphis released their debut album, "The Karelian Isthmus". Receiving an impressive response, the band chose to venture further into melodic terrain, adding progressive keyboard sounds here and clean guest vocals (performed by Ville Tuomi of Kyyria) there. The result was the classic "Tales From The Thousand Lakes", which to this day is considered to be one of the most groundbreaking albums in the doom/death genre. For the first time incorporating lyrics from the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala, the album also was the first true manifestation of the influential Amorphis sound: a seamless combination of intoxicating melodies and aggressive sounds delivered with both clean and harsh vocals. The success of "Tales From The Thousand Lakes" provided Amorphis with the opportunity to tour the European continent several times, and followed by their first US tour in late 1994. Shortly thereafter, the band underwent some major musical and line-up changes. Continuing to feature lyrics based on traditional Finnish folk poetry, the third album "Elegy" introduced a new vocalist, Pasi Koskinen. This adjustment proclaimed a significant transformation in Amorphis' career. Pasi's unique vocals brought a new setting to the music, which now concentrated more on compelling keyboard atmospheres, psychedelic guitar sounds and a distinctive arrangement of the vocals, delivered by both Tomi and Pasi. Encouraged by popular and critical approval, the band members took three years to prepare their next album, honing the newfound style to perfection. "Tuonela" was liberally sprinkled with 1970s-style psychedelic touches and marked another great leap ahead for Amorphis, and its successor, "Am Universum" delved even further into progressive soundscapes. In 2003, Amorphis released "Far From The Sun". While closer to the band's metal roots than the previous longplayer, the album was again very relaxed and melodic as ever, spiced with Far Eastern touches as well as progressive elements in the vein of Pink Floyd. In the late summer of 2004, long-time singer Pasi Koskinen left the band, and Tomi Joutsen (Sinisthra) joined around the end of the year. With a new singer and new energy, the band recorded "Eclipse", an acclaimed masterpiece that combined the best-loved elements of Amorphis' unique sound with fresh vigour. The album went straight to the top of the Finnish charts and was followed by triumphant live appearances all over Europe before the band retreated again to the recording studio. "Eclipse" was followed by "Silent Waters" in the late summer of 2007. The dynamic and emotional range of the new songs, all of which were based on a single episode from the Kalevala, went beyond any of Amorphis' earlier albums, yet at the same time hearkened back to the band's past output in all its diversity. The release of the new album was preceded by a string of festival appearances - including Germany's famous Wacken Open Air - and immediately followed by a five-week Finnish tour.

The band's name, derived from "amorphous" (no determinate form or shape), has been programmatic for the pioneers of Finnish metal over the course of their 20-year career. Setting a diverse, intricate and unique style to their musical approach, often being described as "ahead of their time", the band accrued a large and loyal international fan base. From their independently released demo "Disment of Soul" (1991) through the current releases, Amorphis have always fused elements of traditional heavy, death and doom metal with a great variety of non-metal influences, including folk, progressive and psychedelia, and managed to create an instantly recognizable sound of their own. The band's break-through came in 1994 with "Tales From The Thousand Lakes". The album won the band a massive fan base around the world, reaching a multitude of listeners among and beyond the metal community, and remains immensely popular to this day. In the early stages of their career, Amorphis consisted of Tomi Koivusaari (guitarist and original vocalist), Esa Holopainen (guitars), Olli-Pekka Laine (bass), and Jan Rechberger (drums). Together they greatly affected the metal underground, gained recognition and soon scored a multi-album contract with Relapse Records. Shortly after, Amorphis released their debut album, "The Karelian Isthmus". Receiving an impressive response, the band chose to venture further into melodic terrain, adding progressive keyboard sounds here and clean guest vocals (performed by Ville Tuomi of Kyyria) there. The result was the classic "Tales From The Thousand Lakes", which to this day is considered to be one of the most groundbreaking albums in the doom/death genre. For the first time incorporating lyrics from the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala, the album also was the first true manifestation of the influential Amorphis sound: a seamless combination of intoxicating melodies and aggressive sounds delivered with both clean and harsh vocals. The success of "Tales From The Thousand Lakes" provided Amorphis with the opportunity to tour the European continent several times, and followed by their first US tour in late 1994. Shortly thereafter, the band underwent some major musical and line-up changes. Continuing to feature lyrics based on traditional Finnish folk poetry, the third album "Elegy" introduced a new vocalist, Pasi Koskinen. This adjustment proclaimed a significant transformation in Amorphis' career. Pasi's unique vocals brought a new setting to the music, which now concentrated more on compelling keyboard atmospheres, psychedelic guitar sounds and a distinctive arrangement of the vocals, delivered by both Tomi and Pasi. Encouraged by popular and critical approval, the band members took three years to prepare their next album, honing the newfound style to perfection. "Tuonela" was liberally sprinkled with 1970s-style psychedelic touches and marked another great leap ahead for Amorphis, and its successor, "Am Universum" delved even further into progressive soundscapes. In 2003, Amorphis released "Far From The Sun". While closer to the band's metal roots than the previous longplayer, the album was again very relaxed and melodic as ever, spiced with Far Eastern touches as well as progressive elements in the vein of Pink Floyd. In the late summer of 2004, long-time singer Pasi Koskinen left the band, and Tomi Joutsen (Sinisthra) joined around the end of the year. With a new singer and new energy, the band recorded "Eclipse", an acclaimed masterpiece that combined the best-loved elements of Amorphis' unique sound with fresh vigour. The album went straight to the top of the Finnish charts and was followed by triumphant live appearances all over Europe before the band retreated again to the recording studio. "Eclipse" was followed by "Silent Waters" in the late summer of 2007. The dynamic and emotional range of the new songs, all of which were based on a single episode from the Kalevala, went beyond any of Amorphis' earlier albums, yet at the same time hearkened back to the band's past output in all its diversity. The release of the new album was preceded by a string of festival appearances - including Germany's famous Wacken Open Air - and immediately followed by a five-week Finnish tour. The remainder of 2007 found Amorphis in Europe, Russia and Japan, whereas in 2008 they played in southeastern Europe, at a multitude of festivals and, during the fall, in the USA and Canada. The new album "Skyforger" shares the lyrical concept of the two previous albums, its central character being Kalevala blacksmith Ilmarinen. Musically, the band soars to unprecedented heights; not abandoning the cherished ingredients of their sound but rather refining them, augmenting them with fresh elements, and delivering them with breathtaking passion and intensity. Both the album and the single "Silver Bride" went straight to number one in the Finnish charts, and the live qualities of the new songs were immediately tested and proven on the summer's festival stages. In September, Amorphis went on their first-ever tour of Latin America, followed by the extensive Forging Europe Tour in the fall. In the summer of 2010, the band presented its first-ever live DVD, which includes two full shows recorded in 2009 as well as a career-spanning documentary. The release coincided with the 20th anniversary of Amorphis, which in addition was honored by a compilation of re-recorded classic tracks, released in September 2010. Nostalgia, however, is not what this band is about. Granted, The Beginning Of Times (2011) showcases their trademark style in perfection, including plenty of reference to the death metal days, yet at the same time it proves that Amorphis have lost none of their progressive edge and experimental spirit. Doing honor to protagonist Väinämöinen, the Kalevala‘s central character whom myth credits for bringing music into the world, the band brought forth its most versatile and nuanced effort to date; in terms of performance and arrangements as well as rythms and sounds. Iikka Kahri, whose flute and saxophone already graced several songs on Skyforger, was back in the fold, Tomi Koivusaari added a few discreet touches of pedal steel guitar and Santeri balanced the 1970s prog and 1990s death elements with a synth vocabulary straight out of the eighties. More noticeable still was the addition of Netta Dahlberg’s backing vocals, which beautifully complement Tomi Joutsen’s lead - most poignantly on “Mermaid” and “Soothsayer” but also, for example, on the single You I Need. Besides another number one in Finland, The Beginning Of Times also earned Amorphis their first-ever Top 20 rating in Germany. At the outset of the third decade, Amorphis continue their musical journey creative as ever – not confined to any predetermined shape, yet always instantly recognizable, always true to their own vision, and always unique. On August 21, 2012, Amorphis announced on their website that a new album was in the works. On January 17, 2013, the band announced the title and release date for their next record. Circle was released on April 19 in Europe and April 30th in North America. On September 16, 2013, Circle won Metal Hammer´s “The Album of The Year” award. Esa Holopainen on the award, "For us, Album of the Year award is a great recognition for the work done so far. Especially when we got it from our 11th studioalbum." On August 4, 2014, Amorphis announced on their website and through social media that they would be playing a number of special Tales from the Thousand Lakes 20th Anniversary shows where their 1994 album would be performed in its entirety. Tales from the Thousand Lakes 20th Anniversary shows included festivals such as Wacken Open Air, Maryland Deathfest, and 70000 Tons of Metal with many other tour dates and festivals included. The band began demoing new songs at the start of 2015, and in 4 March of that same year, it was announced that Amorphis will begin to record a new in album in April 2015, at Fascination Street Studio, Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren. The lyrics will be written once again by Pekka Kainulainen, who says "Like 'Kalevala', they are descriptions of natural phenomena, seasons and the human mind. Reoccuring situations where hope and uncertainty alternate. Attempting to gain advice from higher powers. The poems do not form a complete story per se, but they are drawn together by a certain theme. We live under a red cloud and once again, time weighs us." The release of the new album will be followed by a world tour, starting with shows in the band's home country of Finland, then other parts of Europe with Nightwish & Arch Enemy in November 2015. In 15 June 2015, it was announced that the title for the twelfth studio full-length album is Under The Red Cloud, with the artwork and tracklist revealed and with a worldwide release date of 4 September 2015 by Nuclear Blast Records. Dark Tranquillity "Damage Done" is the much-anticipated sixth full length album from Gothenburg's own Dark tranquillity, a band that has become an institution within the realms of extreme Metal, seeing that they deserve full credit for originally kicking off the stylistic wave of melodic Death Metal which has become established and frenetically followed all throughout the world in the meantime. During their 13 years of existence, Dark tranquillity have always tried to constantly expand their musical borders and stray away from already-conquered territory, and "Damage Done" is certainly no exception to their own artistic goal, being a truly diverse affair showcasing a host of new approaches and inspirational sources. Compared to the electronically-tinged approach of "Haven" (2000) or the laid-back, lush melancholia of the (Swedish) Grammy-nominated entity "Projector" (1999), "Damage Done" is more technical and intense in feel; a direct and solid sound, yet with lots of complex arrangements and sonic structures emerging from below the surface. While not by any means being a sheepish "back to the roots" album, some of the aggressive aesthetics present in Dark tranquillity's earlier work have resurfaced, giving birth to some faster passages, pounding and inherently catchy throughout. From the relentless thrash-o-rama of opener "Final Resistance" to the sombre closing tones of "Ex Nihilo" (the first instrumental in the band's history), "Damage Done" runs the full gamut and showcases a hungry and confident band that presents absolutely no signs of musical exhaustion or willingness to descend from their position as a leading creative force in the metal scene. Recorded with long term producer Fredrik Nordström at Gothenburg's famous Studio Fredman facilities, the masterfully written and flawlessly executed eleven new creations on "Damage Done" are determined to fully please the passionate melodic Death Metal following as well as bringing new listeners into the very unique and charismatic sound of Dark tranquillity. Watch out for the band to embark on a massive string of tours following the release of this masterpiece of a new album: The damage is done, my friends! Moonspellofficialband MOONSPELL was formed in 1992 from the ashes of Morbid God, a project they started in 1989. After a couple of years of making a name in the underground, they finally got into a bigger crowd with the release of Wolfheart, via Century Media, in 1995. The band started touring intensively, and in 1996 they released their breakthrough LP Irreligious which brought the Portuguese band to the forefront of Gothic Metal. Since then Moonspell has put out nine solid studio releases. Their last album Extinct was number #1 in Portugal and a chartbreaker in many countries, and they have succeeded in celebrating their 25th anniversary on the road, a bit everywhere in the world. Moonspell will release their new album (a concept about Lisbon’s Great Earthquake) via Napalm Records on the 3rd of November. Is their first album totally sung in Portuguese, their native language. Also the DVD Lisboa Under the Spell, recorded live at Portugal’s capital, is seeing the light of the day in the Summer of 2018. They have announced an Iberian tour for the new album in November 2017 already, and a support tour for Cradle of Filth, starting in January 2018, throughout all of Europe. Omnium Gatherum Hailing from Finland, Omnium Gatherum is a band playing fierce death metal with breathtaking melodies and progressive originality for people in the metal field looking for something different that still is catchy. A band that truly walks it's own path proudly and shows some new exciting sides on identifiable character. A band of many directions and styles, some of them clearly visible while others were more unseen - namely working and keeping it all together under the moniker of melodic life-and-death metal and bastardizing it with various influences. Adult oriented death metal that it is!

    Van Canto ( Van Canto // Special Guests: Evertale + Moonsun // Berlin ) Einlass 18:30 Uhr Beginn 19:30 Uhr Special Guests: Evertale + MoonSun Die Zahl 7 ist schon seit dem Altertum reich beladen mit versteckter sowie auch offensichtlicher kultureller, magischer und religiöser Symbolik. Gewissermaßen waren Van Canto auch schon immer in so herausragender Weise besonders. Die erste und einzige Heavy Metal A Capella Band kann mit Stolz auf eine mittlerweile 10-jährige Karriere zurückblicken, welche 2007 mit ihrem ersten Album „A storm to come“ begann. Seitdem haben sie es immer wieder geschafft, die Herzen ihres Publikums mit ihren kraftvollen, einzigartigen und melodischen Hero Metal Songs im Sturm zu erobern. Keine Instrumente, nur ihre Stimmen und ein Drummer. Inzwischen haben Van Canto weltweit viele und sehr treue Fans, mit denen sich die Band eng verbunden fühlt. Als der Name ihrer nächsten Tour aus der Taufe gehoben wurde, haben Van Canto aber wahrscheinlich nicht an all das gedacht. Die Gründe für den Titel „Tour Number 7“ sind offensichtlicher, aber deswegen nicht weniger großartig. Die Band freut sich auf den Release ihres 7. Studioalbums im Sommer 2018. Seit der langjährige Frontsänger und Freund Sly die Band verließ und der Vorstellung der neuen Sänger Hagen und Jan haben Van Canto 7 Mitglieder. Als Hagen zu der Band stieß, wurde er auch tatsächlich als „Voice No 7“ (&v=wm-QirkvlJQ) vorgestellt - große Ereignisse warfen ihre Schatten voraus! In Anbetracht all dessen sind wir der festen Überzeugung, dass Van Cantos anstehende „Tour Number 7“ nicht weniger als absolut grandios werden kann. Wir möchten Euch einladen, Teil der Magie zu werden und einen unvergesslichen Konzertabend mit den Glorreichen Sieben des Heavy Metals zu erleben!

    Diamond Head ( Four Sticks : Classic Rock Weekender ) New Cross Inn are well chuffed to bring you a weekend of live classic rock comprising of well known and the best up and coming bands in the genre. Times and Prices TBC FRIDAY HEADLINER: Diamond Head Teenagers Brian Tatler and Duncan Scott first started writing music together in Stourbridge in early 1976, with Brian on cheap fuzz guitar and Duncan playing drums on biscuit tins. Brian had a poster of an album by Phil Manzanera called Diamond Head that was released in 1975 and he thought “that would be a good name for the band”. Go to for full bio SATURDAY HEADLINER: Praying Mantis Originally formed in 1973 by the Troy brothers, Tino and Chris, Praying Mantis became one of THE most influential bands of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM). The band is also one of a very small number of bands from that era to have remained a going concern over the intervening years, and to still record and appear live regularly. Go to for full bio SUNDAY HEADLINER: To Be Confirmed Other bands confirmed so far: Burnt Out Wreck Gary Moat - the man at the back is now at the front! "There is no doubt the band takes their groovy Hard Rock very seriously though, because they are really good at what they do! Think Bon Scott era ACDC with a bit of Sleaze Metal thrown in and you have a pretty good idea as to what to expect in respect to Burnt Out Wreck’s style". Any bands that would like to be considered for this then please email your links (NO Spotify, I-Tunes or the like) to foursticksclassicrock@gmail.com also mention your availability for each day please.
