Just a few weeks from now the gates to METALFEST LORELEY will open and from June 20 – 22 more than 30 handpicked bands are taking part that belong to the biggest, heaviest and most exciting acts the genre has to offer. Bands like SLAYER, SUBWAY TO SALLY, ACCEPT, CHILDREN OF BODOM, TESTAMENT, SAXON, DORO, DOWN and many more are going to rock the Rhine Valley!
Now three more unique bands have been confirmed for the Open Air event: SOULFLY around metal icon Max Cavalera, the Norwegian Rock ‘n’ Roll / Metal / Hardcore new discovery KVELERTAK and Dutch Symphonic Metallers DELAIN.
Find details about the bands here:
Icon Max Cavalera needs no introduction – this man wrote thrash metal history with SEPULTURA, and he created a genre of its own with his band SOULFLY: tribal metal! Mammoth albums such as the recently released “Enslaved” (2012) fuse irresistible grooves with hefty thrash metal – a mixture guaranteed to set the 2013 edition of the METALFEST on fire!!!

They were born under the wings of an owl: mighty KVELERTAK from Norway! These passionate lovers of mean birds of prey turned a shitload of heads in 2010 with their self-titled debut – dirty rock reminiscent of TURBONEGRO, black metal, stoner, hardcore and Norwegian lyrics, anyone? A malevolent high energy mixture that carried them all the way to the top…where they will stay with their fantastic new album “Meir”!

Founded in 2005 by former WITHIN TEMPTATION keyboardist Martijn Westerholt, DELAIN released their debut „Lucidity“ in 2006. The Dutch act is famous for its unique brand of symphonic metal laced with melodies guaranteed to leave you craving for more – a mixture that made them regular guests in their home country`s charts. Recently the female fronted band pleased its fans with “Interlude”.
