Wow, another headliner for the next MetalDays edition is here! We’ll be seeing Amon Amarth, as well as Beyond Creation, 1914 and many more!
Amon Amarth to headline MetalDays 2020! No current band embodies the spirit of metal’s immersive culture with more fervour and might than Amon Amarth: Sweden’s celebrated Viking overlords and undisputed modern masters of epic heavy metal! Throughout the years, they grew together with our festival and they became almost like our House band without which we can’t imagine a proper Holiday in Tolmin!
1914 – The Poetry of War! 1914 are a Ukrainian band formed in 2014, at the 100th anniversary of the First World War. They are neither political nor warmongers – like scholars or historians, 1914 tell the tales of war, injustice, tear, hopelessness and endless death around us… Their unique and powerful mix of black metal, sludge and old school death metal is one of a kind, and they are ready to shock us with their music and live performance.
Beyond Creation – Ten years ago they released their first demo, a year after that their debut full-length “The Aura”, which is still one of the highlights of the genre. Since then, Beyond Creation has been known as the progressive, innovative and exciting new metal sound of their homeland, Quebec. Join us in wishing them a warm welcome for their first appearance at MetalDays!
Warkings – a Roman tribune, a savage Nordic warrior, a determined Crusader and a lethal Spartan met in Valhalla. Secretly listening to their stories, the Allfather decided that all living human beings on Earth should know about these true stories of war and heroism… And so the Warkings were born. They are coming to Tolmin to forge some steel and play the heavy metal songs of their glorious battles!
Katla – a pretty new name on the scene, Katla was formed by Einar Thorberg Guðmundsson and Guðmundur Óli Pálmason in late 2015 when the latter needed a new outlet for his musical creations. They took the well known Icelandic post metal/rock sound, added their own touch to it – and it sounds great! Katla is also one of Iceland’s biggest volcanos. The volcano hasn’t erupted violently since 1918.
Well, don’t forget to grab your ticket to this holiday resort in the woods and make sure your giant flamingo is properly inflated!
