The progressive metalband Pyramaze (DK/USA) will come to the 11th edition of the Brainstorm Festival. Last year the band performed at ProgPower Europe, and that convincing show was reason enough to invite the gentlemen to the Brainstorm Festival this time.
Their highly anticipated album “Contingent” has been released on April 28th 2017 in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings
With their milestone fifth album “Contingent,” Pyramaze have grown and matured into a band that is capable of satisfying their fans while simultaneously continuing to break new ground. The incorporation of modern cinematic film score elements mixed with progressive metal riffs and melodies will leave the listener breathless! Huge, sweeping, hard-hitting, and poignant, “Contingent” is an epic post-apocalyptic conceptual piece inspired by current events, the human spirit to overcome struggle and diversity, and the brotherhood that lies there in. Produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Amaranthe, Epica, Evergrey].
Also joining the party: Signum Regis (SK), who have already performed at the Brainstorm Festival in the past. In recent years the band has built up a huge fan base in the Netherlands and this will be their only show in 2018 on Dutch soil.
You can relax at the Brainstorm Festival with the show of Leonov (NO). The Norwegians perform in the atmospheric theatre of stage Gigant. Two years ago Leonov was the surprise of the Brainstorm Festival, which last year resulted in a show at the Female Metal Event FemME in Eindhoven. Now the band returns to Apeldoorn!
Those who prefer their music to be rock-hard should not miss the show of Opus Irae (DE). This symphonic black-metal band presents their debut album. Besides a show on the mainstage, the band also gives a subdued, classically oriented performance in the theatre.
Now that the first names are announced, it is also possible to buy an early bird ticket. For only 30 euros you can experience the whole festival on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 November! The promotion will last until Tuesday 3 July, after which the prices will be adjusted. So go here quickly!
Brainstorm Festival will be held this year on Nov. 9 & 10, as usual in the Gigant in Apeldoorn (NL).
Brainstorm Festival was formed in the beginning of 2008 with a clear mission to enter a new era of music festivals as we know it. Brainstorm Festival is known as an independent cultural rock- and metalfestival, that provides a stage to both new talent as well as metal-dinosaurs. The festival combines hardrock with extreme metal. Besides concerts Brainstorm Festival offers a program in the theater of the club with acoustic performances, interviews, debate and competitions. Also there is an exposition taking place each year, plus a small metal-market.
