METALDAYS 2013 – A preview
For those who don’t know – which is most of you – I’ve been a pretty avid festivalgoer. And being from the USA, that isn’t always an easy feat! I’ve been to Wacken Open Air three times, Summer Breeze, and three of the famed metal cruises. I’m a bit of a traveler, you could say. This year, the decision was made to try something different. A lot of people have been raving about how awesome of a time Metalcamp is (which has now changed names to Metaldays). With that in mind, and one of the best lineups in Europe to entice yours truly, preparations began to catch this one-of-a-kind festival.
Metaldays is certainly a test of endurance – a seven-day marathon of awesome. This is certainly one of – if not the longest – metal festival going. I for one am beyond excited to conquer this beast!
The location is also one of the main attractions, of which has made this festival famous. Located on a beautiful beach in the Alps, the scenery is just gorgeous. You can’t get much better than that!
And then there’s that whole lineup thing. Here’s a large chunk of what will be on offer:
Legion of the Damned Leprous
Mouth of the Architect
My Dying Bride
The Gates of Slumber
Needless to say, this dude is going to be one busy bee!
Of course, a full on report will be available here at Eternal Terror after the festival is concluded. A review full of band coverage and my wacky escapades, as well as a ton of photos, will all be a part of this. If any of our awesome readers are going, I’d love to hear your thoughts and insights before/after the fest! Any advice to making this as great as humanly possible is also welcome. Look my sorry self up on the Facebook. I’m easy to find, honest!
