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.
The name of the band is Winterhorde and we are from Israel/Germany at a ratio of 7:1 in favor of Israel :)
When did you first find out about Metal Days?
About 6 or 7 years ago when I (Alex Feldman) first arrived in Slovenia in search of a metal fest! And oh boy, I found one! Didn’t miss one since.
How did you end up on the bill for this year’s festival?
As all the others, left a CD in the booth – a copy of our third full album, Maestro.
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?
We have played several big stages all over Europe, from Romania to Portugal, shared the stage with amazing artists and had tons of fun! The fact we come from Israel makes everything a bit far away! This is our first appearance in Slovenia though.
Which bands on the bill are you most looking forward to seeing?
Wow, what a question! We are 8 people with particular taste in music and life in general. The line up is awesome and we look forward to many amazing shows!
Other than bands, what are you most looking forward to about Metal Days?
Apart of the music, this festival is an great opportunity to relax and spend quality time with your friends and band-members, so it is also a sort of family vacation for us!
Before you hit the stage: Monster energy drink or Laško beer?
We’ll see you there!
Looking forward seeing you too!
