METALSUCKS PRESENTS: EUROBLAST 8, FEATURING SCAR SYMMETRY, JEFF LOOMIS, ANIMALS AS LEADERS AND MORE
UPDATE, 4 Oct: The lineup has since changed. View the up to date list of bands appearing here.
Last year’s edition of Euroblast — the two-day technical metal festival held every fall in Cologne, Germany — was the biggest one yet in the fest’s seven-year history, featuring Mnemic, Textures, TesseracT, Vildhjarta, Sybreed, Monuments, Chimp Spanner and more. For the second year in a row MetalSucks is back on board as a sponsor, and Euroblast just keeps getting better and better (aside from the obvious fact that our logo makes anything more pretty, obviously): this year’s festival will last THREE days, from the 19th through the 21st of October, and will once again be held in Cologne.
The second wave of bands was announced last week, with more to be announced soon. But even if the lineup was set in stone as it is right now this thing would be worth going to: Scar Symmetry, Jeff Loomis and Animals as Leaders top the bill, while TesseracT, Uneven Structure, Vildhjarta, Monuments and Chimp Spanner are all coming back for the second year in a row. Exivious and Panzerballet will be there too! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Watch the trailer for the second wave of bands below, and stay tuned in the coming weeks for the rest of the lineup to be revealed.
