Another one to add to your calendars – Very ‘Eavy Festival in the Netherlands on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th of April 2015. From the press release:
Friday, April 3, there will be four bands on stage:
Enchantress from Belgium is a new band with very talented young musicians, who play in the tradition of bands like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.
Vergif from Limburg only play songs from the legendary English band Venom and do so in a way that you wander back into the 80’s.
Night Demon of the U.S. is the promise of 2015 A fantastic heavy metal power trio that sounds more English than American.
The evening will be concluded by the Dutch band Elise. A band that is already set up in the 80’s and only occurs sporadically.
Satan, Raven and Tokyo Blade are just three of the nine bands that will be on stage Saturday, April 4:
Ear Danger from the Netherlands will be opening the festival Saturday with some good traditional heavy metal.
The Deep consists of former members of The Deep Machine. A band that was in the very early 80s popular in the south of our country. After more than 30 years, they’re back. And indeed in Stadskanaal.
Air Raid from Sweden is working hard to claim their spot in the heavy metal scene and could be one of the surprises of 2015.
Sad Iron from the Netherlands is also a band from the 80’s, in recent years they are only occasionally on stage. A fairly unique opportunity to see this band perform in the north of the Netherlands.
Tysondog from England always guarantees a hell of a show. This band has a cult-status for quite some time already.
Sacred Steel from Germany has a lot of fans in our country. A mix of heavy – and thrash metal will certainly go down on the middle of the day.
Tokyo Blade from England is actually a headliner. This band is still seen as one of the most important British metal bands.
Headliner Raven comes from America, but started out as an English band in the late 70s. In their glory days, they even took a band like Metallica in tow.
Second and last headliner is the English Satan. According to Koch, one of the very best British heavy metal bands. Recently, they were on the same stage as Iron Maiden in front of 80,000 visitors during Hellfest in France.
