Brothers of Metal to Sabaton Open Air 2017!

Brothers of Metal

Some call them the greatest metal band that ever existed. Even though they met both fame and fortune they still stayed modest. They never called themselves the greatest or the best, the most cunning. Because deep inside they know they are all that and more, they are mighty warriors of Valhalla chosen by Odin allfather. They play true metal that leave posers and wimps in shame of their way of life.

Metal Hammer will most likely give their upcoming album 12/10 giving Brothers of Metal their rightful place on the throne, as kings and queens of true metal. If you miss this battle, you shall forever live in regret and despair.
Come, watch the battle, become a believer.

Convivium to Sabaton Open Air 2017!

Convivium

Convivium is a melodic trash metal band from the southern parts of Dalecarlia, Sweden. Formed in 2011, they play a fast and aggressive brand of metal that still retains an excellent sense of melody and harmony, providing a very complete listening experience. Combine that with absolutely slamming live shows and you have an extremely dangerous band on the rise!

This was recognized by the jury of Wacken Metal Battle when they awarded Convivium the 5th place in the world finals at Wacken Open Air, among very fierce competition. The band continued 2014 with the release of their explosive latest EP ”Staring Into Black”, appearances at Rockstad: Falun and several club gigs in Stockholm. In 2016 Convivium had the great honor of opening for Raubtier during Rovdjursturnén, taking them all across their homeland.

Mark Zero to Sabaton Open Air 2017!

Mark Zero

Founded in Falun, Sweden in 2013 and now based in Gothenburg, Mark Zero is about creating music that truly reflects its members, which wasn’t always the case in some of their previous musical projects. Already playing together in a funk-rock quintet, guitarist John NT, bass player Kammo Olayvar and drummer Robin Risander realized their true calling was heavy metal, and having recruited Scott Crocker on guitars, Mark Zero was complete!

With strong melodies and meaningful lyrics in a dark soundscape with seriously detuned guitars, Mark Zero is now ready to show everyone what dedication and hard work can bring!

Hammerfall to Sabaton Open Air 2017!

Hammerfall

There are quite a few of us who are happy over the fact that the HammerFall boys once went against the tide – and dared to stand (and deliver!) their metal, in a time when metal was in a coma.

Some 20 years and 9 studio albums later, HammerFall released their 10th, ”Built to Last”this fall. They are also introducing their new drummer, Johan Koleberg, who the SOA audience met last summer in Therion.

HammerFall is to consider one of the most iconic bands in their genre, and it’s with great pride we now can welcome them to Falun in August 2017 for a Friday headline show at Sabaton Open Air!

Or as the singer, Joacim Cans puts it:

”It is an honor to yet again share the stage with our friends in Sabaton, and this time on their home ground within the heart of Sweden. We have always had a nice fanbase there so we are really looking forward to once again deliver some ‘True German metal from Sweden!’ ;) “

HammerFall is headline act for Friday night!

-See you in Falun, in August 2017!
