We’re certainly in for a treat this metal holiday with MetalDays announcing 5 new spectacular names! In case you weren’t sure about joining us this year, maybe Devin Townsend or Oceans of Slumber will change your mind. We’ll also be having Green Carnation, Cypecore and MØL to entertain us at the beautiful Tolmin valley.
Devin Townsend – a top requested name by MetalDays visitors this year… And for a very good reason! Without any doubt, we can say that Devin Townsend is one of the musical geniuses of this era and we are delighted to announce his return to Tolmin! This show will contain more brutal songs and will be more catered to the metal tracks in his repertoire than his previous tour, and that means we will get to hear some “Strapping Young Lad” songs for sure. We can’t wait!
Green Carnation – a Norwegian avant-garde/prog/metal outfit. Green Carnation’s trend of music has continuously become less and less heavy after every release; from straightforward death metal, to a progressive doom metal sound, to an atmospheric gothic metal sound, to a melancholic hard rock sound and in 2006, went as far as to releasing an entirely acoustic album “The Acoustic Verses”. We are really curious to see what will they prepare for us at MetalDays.
Oceans Of Slumber – The band was already formed in 2011, but when their singer left the band in 2014, they found an outstanding frontwoman in Cammie Gilbert. Although the band is often labeled as prog metal, it is far from “look how fast and complicated I can play on this guitar” prog. The heart of the band is melancholy and exceptional creativity and craftsmanship. They mix in doom and the perfect amount of death metal-aggression and are one of the few really unique bands out there these days.
Cypecore – melodic industrial death metal band from Germany. They released four independent studio albums till now and all of them were conceptual albums based upon a narrative of futuristic, post-apocalyptic warfare, set in a hypothetical 22nd century. Their music is brutal, martial, but still melodic. Heavy guitar riffs, mechanical double bass parts, MØL sounding vocals, electronic elements and cinematic sound settings are the fuel for the Cypecore machinery.
Møl – The pairing of Black Metal and Shoegaze was always going to have its naysayers; fortunately, the triumphant and crushing sonic result has been the catalyst for some truly incredible bands – just like Danish-powerhouse MØL.. If you enjoy listening to bands such as Alcest and Deafheaven, you are definitely going to like these guys as well!
