Down and Baddies to Roskilde

American heavy rock and a high-flying British hope joins the line-up this Wednesday.

Roskilde Festival continues in the rocking groove again this week. The festival is proud to present this infrequent visitor in Scandinavia. A band that has been ranked high on the rock crowd's request lists year after year.

DOWN (US) is an all-star metal band with Phil Anselmo from now-defunct Pantera on lead vocals. Members from Corrosion of Conformity, EyeHateGod and Crowbar also join in on the hard-rocking fun. The band from the Southern States is for everyone with a penchant towards droning, stoner metal with the heritage from Black Sabbath in place.

This strongly requested band stands side by side with a brand-new, more melodic rock band.

BADDIES (UK) could be a qualified guess of a 'band of the year' in 2009, says a consenting team of critics. The band leans against the driven and cool beat as found with Queens of the Stone Age, while at the same time they have that unmistakable British attitude known from Arctic Monkeys or Kaiser Chiefs.

More music Thursday, Friday and Saturday
Roskilde Festival has only started this week's band announcements. Soon the Norwegian music business festival by:Larm will begin. Several employees from Roskilde Festival head up to Oslo where the event takes place from Thursday to Saturday this week. While the Norwegian capital hums with concerts, meetings and panels, Roskilde Festival will announce exciting Norwegian acts. Look forward to new music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week – for Norwegians, participants at by:Larm and all music lovers in general.
