Metal on the Hill is on fire for its fifth round! This year the most popular open-air venue in Graz, the Schlossberg Stage Kasematten, will burn for metal once again. After the first impressive wave of confirmed bands, Napalm Records and its in-house booking department Napalm Events are happy to announce the next highlight: Swedish Black Metal phenomena Marduk will rock at Metal on the Hill 2020.
Metal on the Hill turned into a permanent institution on the international festival map, due to its high class acts and marvelous location, which is unmistakably connected with the uniqueness of Styria! The fifth edition will take place on the most beautiful stage in Austria: The historical Kasematten. Save the Dates: 14 & 15.08.2020!
Nordic black metal icons Marduk, who significantly influenced the second wave of Black Metal, will celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2020 and blast the stage with their Nordic cold attitude. Their extraordinary live spectacle will overwhelm your mind with a sinister Black Metal attitude. Their latest chart-breaking album, “Viktoria” (2018), proves that Marduk remains unstoppable.
In addition to Finnish epic metal headliners Amorphis we’re happy to welcome monster heavy rockers Lordi, orchestral tech death metal masters Fleshgod Apocalypse and pagan metal legends Tyr. Symphonic metal standouts Visions of Atlantis will bring an exclusive special to the Metal on the Hill by playing a unique show with the Bohemian Symphony Orchestra Prague.
Furthermore, nu metal formation Infected Rain, gothic metal pioneers Crematory, the metalheads of Wind Rose, melodic metal front Freedom Call and nu metal band Pain Is can’t wait to set the stage on fire. More promising announcements will follow soon!
