Megnyitott a 12. Hegyalja Fesztivál

2011. Júl 13, 18:07 :

Délután négy órakor megnyitott a Hegyalja Fesztivál. A kempingek már két napja várják a fesztiválozókat, így a fesztiválterület nyitásakor már több ezer sátor ölelte körül a zenei színpadokat. Az elkövetkező négy napban, többek között, a Slayer, a Ladytron, a Mastodon, a Kosheen lép fel a fesztiválon, de már ma este is nagy durranásra számíthatnak a fesztiválozók, hiszen a Scooterrel melegíthetnek be a tokaji zenés nyaralásra.

Tegnap este még szúnyogírtással is gondoskodtak a szervezők arról, hogy a felhőtlen zenei élményt a vérszívók se akadályozhassák meg. A felhőtlen jelző szó szerint értendő, hiszen jelenleg és az időjárás-előrejelzések szerint is a fesztivál teljes idején napfényes idő és enyhe éjszakák várják a hegyaljásokat. A fesztiválterületen is időre befejeződött minden munka, így a nyitást követően, hagyományosan este 6-tól a Beatricével indul a Hegy' Nagyszínpad, a fesztivál új helyszínét, az MR2 Furmint Klubot pedig stílusosan, borkóstolóval avatják fel a fesztiválozók.

Hot News – Weedeater's "Mancoon/Turkey Warlock" Video Has Been Unleashed!

2011. Júl 13, 17:49 :

Cape Fear's raging trio WEEDEATER have today unleashed their freshly-baked "Mancoon/Turkey Warlock" video to the masses, and this one is a must-see.

The video is for the segued third and fourth tracks from the band's latest full-length, Jason... The Dragon.

WEEDEATER and their team were going for a "Deliverance meets Scooby-Doo and Three Stooges kind of vibe" on the direction of the video, and unquestionably succeeded in that! Presented as part of Scion's A/V series, the whimsical but freakishly dark video was captured in the swampy backwoods in the band's backyard by David Brodsky of My Good Eye Visuals, who has directed videos for Suffocation, Misery Index, Amon Amarth, Hate Eternal, Municipal Waste, Unearth, Goatwhore and dozens of other national acts. Stated the WEEDEATER camp in a recent update about the filming of the video: "After viewing, those of you from the old-school might recognize that some portions of the filming took place out in the swamps of Hampstead at the old Weedeater house (thanks, Jimmy!). Aside from the water moccasins, the alligators and the giant Hampstead mosquitoes, we couldn't have asked for a more suitable location."
