CATHEDRAL, THE DEVIL’S BLOOD og DEAD CONGREGATION til HITS
HOLE IN THE SKY
Cathedral, The Devil's Blood
Event: Hole in the Sky – Bergen Metal Fest XI
Date: 25.08. – 28.08
Location: Bergen, Norway
This august Hole in the Sky celebrated the festivals 10 year anniversary, and what a joyful celebration that was. By many hailed as the best festival to date, with magnificent performances from such legendary acts as Pentagram, Voivod, Nifelheim, a surprise appearance from Sodom and a special crafted anniversary set by Enslaved with guests from Emperor, Mayhem, Entombed and Darkthrone.
With the overwhelming success of the 2009 festival firmly placed in our mental scrap book, we can't wait to start a new and exciting chapter in the Hole in the Sky legacy.
So here we go with the first batch of band lined up for the 2010 festival.
We've been eager to book the mighty hard hitters Cathedral for quite some time and this time we finally made the schedule work. Cathedral has been pioneers within the legendary British doom scene for almost 20 years now, never afraid to explore new territories and always coming across as fresh and revitalizing.
Another first is the fantastic Dutch occult rockers The Devil's Blood. Their debut album "The Time of NoTime Evermore" is nothing short of a unique piece of classic hard rock melted together with tasteful hints of 70's prog and psychedelia. Hole in the Sky is extremely honoured to be granted with their first and exclusive appearance on Norwegian soil.
We're also honoured to present the rising death metal force Dead Congregation from Greece. As the band put it themselves:
"Born in 2004, Dead Congregation focus on the main aspect lacking in today's Death Metal bands/releases: Feeling, spirit, atmosphere and quality. Creating Darkness and Blasphemy is the only goal…"
Tickets goes on sale today, Friday the 4th of December. Including a limited number of 4-day passes only available until the 24th of December.
Hole in the Sky will take place the 25th – 28th of August 2010. All though beware of related activities around the official festival dates.
