FINNTROLL and TURISAS, the finest of Finland’s epic metal bands have teamed up together with the likes of Alestorm, Arkona, Trollfest and Skalmöld for the upcoming Heidenfest 2011:

Read the words from FINNTROLL: “It’s been almost a year since we rotted the European clubs. After too much sun in the Caribbean Sea, Latin America, Texas and Australia, we are looking forward to some grim cold in the old world. And we can already announce that we will play some songs you haven’t heard live in a while and some songs you haven’t heard before at all. We are entering the studio in a couple of days for a yet secret project. Stay tuned and see you soon!”

Olli Vänskä (violin) from TURISAS says: "Howdy ho! This is the first time we are doing the Heidenfest tour and it feels great to get back on the road again in Europe. With this line-up, it's gonna be a fun night of explosive metal brotherhood, every single night. Open your bottles, satisfaction guaranteed!"

2011. jún 9, 21:59 :


Will be released later this month via Candlelight Records

When Rat joined Discharge in 2003 the band was venturing out on tour to the USA, and wanted something to have out promote whilst touring, so the band went into the studio to Lay some tracks down. Tracks 1 - 9 were recorded at Madhouse studios in Crewe, tracks 10-13 were recorded at one of the gigs back at their home town of Stoke on Trent at the Sugar Mill. This re-issue also includes three bonus tracks that originally appeared on the Beginning of the End EP. Discharge is a British hardcore punk band formed in 1977 by Terry "Tezz" Roberts and Roy "Rainy" Wainwright. They are often considered among one of the very first bands to play hardcore punk, and to mix punk with metal. While the band had substantial line-up changes over its history, the core members over the early 1980s, when the band produced its key recordings, were Kelvin "Cal" Morris (vocals), Tony "Bones" Roberts (guitar), Roy Wainwright (bass), and Terry Roberts (drums).


Hegyaljások tervezik saját furmintjuk címkéjét

2011. jún 9, 21:54 :

Fesztiválozó dizájner címkéje kerül a Hegy’ welcome furmintjára. A fesztivál szervezői és a Tokaj Kereskedőház pályázatot indított a kreatív bor- és zenerajongóknak: a tét a fesztivál hivatalos borának vizuális megjelenése.

Ősi magyar szőlőfajtából készült borral koccintva indul az idei Hegyalja. Az elsőként regisztráló hegyaljásokat olyan itallal köszönti a fesztivál, amire egyikük keze munkája, a címketervező pályázaton győztes alkotás kerül majd.

A szervezők olyan pályamunkákat várnak, amikben ötvöződik a furmint, mint régi és a Hegyalja, mint új hungaricum esszenciája, merészen, határozott vonalakkal rajzolt, és kifejezi alkotója bor és zene iránti szeretetét. A zsűritagja H. Jancsó Kata festőművész, aki grafikusként a fesztivál arculatáért felel, Illés Tamás, a Tokaj Kereskekedőház marketing vezetője, és Dankó Bence, a Hegy’ kommunikációs csapatának tanácsadója. Ők hárman választják majd ki a győztes címketervet, addig pedig naponta tanácsokkal segítik a tervezők munkáját a Hegyalja Facebook-oldalán.
