Today’s band announcements for the W:O:A are very international – we have prepared 7 acts from many different countries. And the package is also musically very varied!
Chris Jericho is not only well known as a wrestler, but also as a metalhead and musician. The music of Fozzy mixes Hard Rock and Alternative Metal and is definitely not the wrong choice for your next party soundtrack!
Act of Defiance
Thrash Metal with (ex) members of Megadeth, Scar the Martyr and Shadow Falls – Act of Defiance are shredding through the scene since 2014. They have already released two albums and we can’t wait to welcome them.
D-A-D guitarist and singer Jesper Binzer released a solo album! The music still rocks like hell, but it is quite a different style he uses here. A recommendation not only for D-A-D fans.
The medieval metal band Vogelfrey return to Wacken with their new album In Ekstase, which was released in autumn. It is the meanwhile fourth album of the band from Hamburg.
From Indonesia to Wacken! Jasad, which are active since 1990, are playing Brutal Death Metal. The songs are written in English and Indonesian and made of brutal energy!
Progressive Metal band Persefone sets off from Andorra for W:O:A. They are known for tremendous songs and albums with many different elements.
Don’t worry, the Lovebites are NOT the next Kawaii troupe glorified as a metal outfit! The five Japanese ladies are completely into their music and their debut album Awakening from Abyss turned out as a great Heavy / Power Metal record.
