Brace yourselves for BEASTIVAL festival 2013 which will supply you with supreme heaviness, the biggest acts in metal and mean shredding! This three-day headbanger`s feast will take place May 30th to June 1st, and will guarantee you a perfect start into your very own heavy summer! Located in Geiselwind, Germany, the line-up to enter two stages already looks like a wet dream come true. Besides SABATON, WINTERSUN,KATAKLYSM, SATYRICON and many other bands, the “Big Teutonic 4″ KREATOR, SODOM, DESTRUCTION and TANKARD have been announced!
Now further bands have been confirmed for BEASTIVAL 2013. NACHTMYSTIUM had to cancel their performance due to personal reasons, insteadIMPERIUM DEKADENZ could be signed as a worthy replacement.
With today’s announcements the BEASTIVAL billing is complete and the running order will be announced Friday, April 5. These are the new entrants:
German duo IMPERIUM DEKADENZ first thrilled us with “…und die Welt ward kalt und leer“ in 2006: the result was a stunning, intelligent and poetic interpretation of black metal that seems to be unmatched on an international scale! You will find epic and freezing cold song structures far away from stereotypical satanic cult also on their new, fourth studio album, Meadows Of Nostalgia.

Good old thrash metal is going through yet another renaissance nowadays – and if the quality level is as high as what PESSIMIST have to offer we gotta enjoy this trend! The German act is heavily influenced by old school heroes like KREATOR, EXODUS or TESTAMENT: their debut album, Call To War (2010), is full of 80’s spirit. PESSIMIST released their second old school manifesto, Death From Above, in 2013.

Founded by singer and keyboardist Askeroth in 2005, German act NACHTBLUT immediately started to create its very own vision of dark metal. Sociopolitical and blasphemous lyrics meet somber metal riffs on albums such as Antik (2009) – a thrilling mix that rose to new heights on the recent release, Dogma (2012)!

These aggressive thrash metal youngsters have already landed support slots with legends such as NAPALM DEATH, SEPULTURA, HYPOCRISY or OBITUARY and scored the title “Demo of the month” in the German issue of Metal Hammer with the self-produced Chaos Possession EP in 2010. The four band members might be under 20 years of age – but they sure sound like Bay Area veterans. You`ll find proof on their debut album, Violent Demolition!

German thrashers HATRED have been around since 1998 and could score gigs with TANKARD – amongst others – pretty much right after the founding of the band. This was followed by self-produced albums such as Fractured and Soulless, and a show at the prestigious “Way of Darkness” festival 2006. After the release of Destruction Manual in 2010 the guys have busied themselves with working on new songs.

They might have started out as a power metal band in 1995, but a couple of years later they started indulging in Swedish melodic death metal:EMERGENCY GATE from Munich consollidated their new choice of style with Rewake (2009). In 2013 they released You!, a varied effort that mixes melodic death metal with metalcore and modern metal.
