Fifth year in a row, the local club festival Hard ‘n’ Heavy Night is happening again, this time at Zagreb’s Hard Place. Save the date – March 14th! The entry fee is a paltry sum of 25 kuna. This year’s killer line-up is comprised of the returning Savant from Koprivnica, fantastic Chaos Addict from Slavonski Brod, young and promising Lionmane from Rijeka and as special guests – Aztec, boys from Zagreb who played at the very first Hard ‘n’ Heavy Night!
Savant is Heavy Metal band from Koprivnica, They came to be after the dissolution of Katarza in 2007. They’ve got a ton of gigs behind them and now they’re here to introduce their fresh album “Priče kraj ognjišta” (“Tales by the Hearth”). This will be the first real promotion of the album in Zagreb. Their set at the third Hard ‘n’ Heavy Night left a great impression, it was everyone’s wish to hear them again. We’re sure they’ll knock your socks off!
Chaos Addict was founded in 2010 in Slavonski Brod as Megadeth cover band. After two dozen gigs all across the region, they dedicated themselves to original work and after a few line-up changes, made it to the Megaphone studio in Rijeka to record their debut album “Sacrament of Hope” with the help of producer Davor Tomić. The album was released by Nota Bene Records in 2017 and features some important guest appearances like Dino Jelusić (Animal Drive) and BjornStrid (Soilwork). We’re expecting a new EP from Chaos Addict in 2020!
LionMane is Heavy Metal band from Rijeka founded in the summer of 2015. This long-haired band plays original material influenced by the founders of the genre – Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Scorpions, Accept, etc. Guitar harmonies, melodic vocals and a lot of headbanging is what best describes their musical expression. Check out their 2019 EP “Midnight Fever” while we wait for the full album they’re working on right now, promised to be more mature in sound. LionMane had a numbers of gigs across the state already, with the most notable being a double concert as support to Chaos Addict and a mini-tour of Bosnia and Sebia supporting Greek heavy metallers Murder Angles.
Aztec is Hard Rock/Heavy Metal/Pre-hispanic metal band from Zagreb founded in 2013. Old friends of the Zagreb audience, they’ve prepared something old and something new for this concert. We’ll get to hear an exclusive premiere of some tracks from the upcoming album that’s still in the making!
