KYUSS LIVES!

If there had never been the legendary Kyuss, we wouldn't know this present form of today's stoner rock we love so much! The Californian masters belong to the true pioneers and trailblazers of this savoury subgenre in the landscape of heavy but hearty rock-music. Cult releases such as 'Blues For The Red Sun' and 'Welcome To Sky Valley' still make the mouth of rock-fans damned water.

Due to John Garcia - bandleader, mastermind and singer – fans of psychedelic groove-sounds get the chance to enjoy the band's first-class-stoner-hymns since a very long time. Under the obvious declared banner Kyuss Lives! the charismatic frontman reached to reconstitute almost the complete line-up (inter alia with Nick Oliveri and Brant Bjork) for performing kind of 'Best Of Kyuss' sets at some selected festival and concert-shows.

Now you'll get the offer to live the stoner-dream at Metalfest to get your blood boiled. If you miss this unique show, you better bury yourself alive!



GRAND MAGUS

When the auspicious wolves of Grand Magus start to rock, every skull begins to crumble. The Swedish group around frontman Janne 'JB' Christoffersson catapults the hammer of the North towards Metalfest and announces a brute doom/stoner Metal storm, that'll take your life away.

Black hearted and driven by old school attitude, this trio infernal copes with topics like nature, death and the history of Sweden within their songs. Inspired by these dark backgrounds, Grand Magus create apocalyptic rock, which sounds as if it comes out straight from hell. Rapturing guitar-riffs, electrifying bass-lines and murderous grooves make stoner-fans feel bigger than the devil. This is obviously one of the reasons why Grand Magus reached to become a cult-act within the doom/stoner-scene. Get bitten by these mad wolves at Metalfest!



GRAVEYARD

With their tremendous songs, which definitely rip off your skin, the creative quartet of Graveyard makes clear that Sweden is the home of death Metal. Especially the band's wide-ranged repertoire of styles, which consists of classical rock, jazz and blues music, leaves you astonished. Within their sound, Graveyard unleash emotions, feelings and moods, which could neither be more manifold nor more far-reaching.

It's not a surprise when the press refer to Graveyard's music as "Black Sabbath meets Led Zeppelin meets Rolling Stones!"

While a lot of other bands of the stoner and 70s rock genre focus a neo-satanic imagery, Graveyard follow the traditional path. Do you fancy a wide retro-rock-performance, now? Then get your ass to Metalfest!



ORANGE GOBLIN

It's time to get the guitars smashed and indulge the mighty horned god! The party-possessed Brits of Orange Goblin couldn't live out the music and lifestyle of rock more authentically. Wherever they appear, the rock 'n roll barometer reaches highest levels. Orange Goblin represent all things you associate with Heavy Metal. Sex, drugs and rock 'n roll so if you're looking for an overdose of rock music, these crazy booze 'n groove maniacs let your dirtiest dreams come true.

Orange Goblin never hesitate and live the Heavy Metal spirit in its purest form. Their sources of inspiration are unmistakable elements in the combo's sound, which remind of classics like Motörhead, Thin Lizzy, Danzig, Black Sabbath or Celtic Frost. Be sure, these bastards know how to break through your auditory canals. The way's free for an excessive rock-party at Metalfest! Hell fuckin' yeah!
