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.
Dawnless. We come from a small village in the middle of the Swiss Alps (Switzerland).
When did you first find out about Metal Days?
Last year, through Facebook.
How did you end up on the bill for this year’s festival?
Our drummer also plays for another band called Tyrmfar that will actually also perform this year at MD (Friday). Tyrmfar played last year on the New Forces stage and left our band’s name there. A few months later, Dawnless received an invitation to perform in 2018 on the New Forces stage.
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?
Yes, it’s the furthest we will have played! But we have done some bigger gigs in Switzerland already.
Which bands on the bill are you most looking forward to seeing?
Behemoth, Children of Bodom, Epica, Judas Priest, ….
Other than bands, what are you most looking forward to about Metal Days?
Sharing good times with friends while listening to good music!
Before you hit the stage: Monster energy drink or Laško beer?
