Despicable Heroes_2014Hardcore/Metalcore band Despicable Heroes has been added to the line-up for the annual Brainstorm Festival.

After an experiment with a festival on one day, Brainstorm Festival returns in 2015 to the old way: a two day festival!  Brainstorm Festival will be held 13 and 14 November 2015, as usual in Gigant in Apeldoorn (The Netherlands), again with a nice line-up with the best rock- and metalbands.

Other bands booked so far: Empire 21 (SE), Sleeping Romance (IT), Bloodwork (UK), Signum Regis (SK), Morgarten (CH), Sacrety (DE), Desolate Fields (NL) more tba.

Despicable Heroes started in 2010 in a small town called “Barneveld”. Kevin (screamer/guitarist) and Gino (bass) were troubled during the proces of creative songwriting because of the absence of a drummer, Sam was found few weeks later making all aspects of a band complete. During the first year ‘DH’ has won the play-off on a local band competition, qualifying themselves by winning the semi-finals, at the finals of the provincial bandcontest in “Willemeen, Arnhem” during the “GESEL XL weekend”

In the following years many shows were played, nationally and internationally, and lots of new songs have been written. Faster, heavier, more intense and more energetic each time a new song was finished and ready to hit the stage and crowds. Characterizing and defining the band’s identical and versatile sound. Despicable Heroes combines true hardcore riffing and massive polyrithmic breakdowns, creating total chaos and unsustainable crowds.

In the beginning of 2013 Despicable Heroes signed with Unite Records and producer Dimitri Stolk making is able to release their first record. The result was an 8-track fulllength called “Shipwrecked” which was released on the 18th of May 2013.

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.
