Always aiming to put the smaller / less well known bands front and centre, welcome to our series featuring acts on the New Forces stage at this year’s Metal Days festival in Slovenia, as well as a couple of bands who are being featured for a second time having trodden the boards of that stage in earlier years. We’ll be there with them and hopefully will catch as many of them live as possible so we can tell you how good they are! Tickets for the five-day (plus warmup!) event are still available for around £135. It takes place in Tolmin, Slovenia, from July 21st to 28th.
We are Storm Seeker from Neuss/Düsseldorf, Germany.
When did you first find out about Metal Days?
Our keyboardist Tim was asked to join by some friends 3 years ago and since then visits Metal Days every year!
How did you end up on the bill for this year’s festival?
Via the New Forces program of Metal Days obviously!
Is this the furthest you’ll ever have played from home and/or the biggest gig you’ve ever played? If so, what was the furthest/biggest before now?
It is definitely the furthest gig so far; we played in Milano before, but Tolmin is quite a few kilometres more! The biggest gig we played so far was at Dong Open Air in Germany. Let’s see if Metal Days New Forces Stage can compete…
Which bands on the bill are you most looking forward to seeing?
This varies a lot from our members; personally, I will spontaneously decide what to watch!
Other than bands, what are you most looking forward to about Metal Days?
Holiday flair and beach party at the Soca!
Before you hit the stage: Monster energy drink or Laško beer?
Lasko and rum!
