In mid-April, three great Italian bands would come to the Netherlands for an exclusive mini tour. Not only the bands are great but especially the singers of Ancient Bards, Sleeping Romance and Kalidia appeal to the imagination. Unfortunately, as a result of measures against the spread of the coronavirus, the organization had to call off its performances.

The bands respond as follows:

“It is with great sadness that we have to announce that the Female Italian Voices – Symphonic Metal Nights, which would take place during April 2020, will be canceled. Due to the coronavirus it is hardly impossible for bands to travel through Europe, as international borders are closed and clubs had to close down. We are really sorry this happened, and we hope to return with the Female Italian Voices somewhere in the future. Stay healthy! ”

The Brainstorm Festival has two nice additions. Both the Italian power-metal band Kalidia and the Polish gothic-wave band Metus can be seen in the Netherlands for the first time. Kalidia at the mainstage, Metus in the theatre.

No-one seems to be able to stop Kalidia anymore. The Italian band is on the rise in Europe with shows in Germany, England, Switzerland and of course Italy. Brainstorm Festival has the honour of being the first in the Netherlands to offer the band a stage. You bet the band around singer Nicoletta Rosellini will surprise you with modern, infectious power metal.

At least as special is the coming of Metus, the Polish band that has been releasing albums for many years but scarcely can be seen live. The band hasn’t played in the Netherlands before. Metus gives a performance in the theatre of the Brainstorm Festival. In other words, an environment that suits the melancholic gothic, doom and wave of the band. This promises to be a show not to be missed. Continue reading »
