The line-up for Brainstorm Festival 2022 is complete! The final bands are Fallen Sanctuary and VRS:NSMV. Previously, headliners Firewind, Swallow The Sun and Scar Symmetry had been announced.

The Austrian/Italian ensemble Fallen Sanctuary may not immediately ring a bell, until we mention that this is the new band of vocalist Georg Neuhauser (Serenity, Warkings) and Marco Pastorino (singer/guitarist of Temperance). Expect multi-voiced power-metal of a high level. Fallen Sanctuary will be doing a show on the mainstage as well as in our theater hall.

Another artist set for our theater is VRS:NSMV, the side-project of pianist Nacht from German black-metal band Opus Irae. Expect a dark, classical piano concert where you can relax for a while in our lovely theater seats. A nice moment of rest during the festival and at the same time surprising and exciting.

The line-up for the Brainstorm Festival 2021 is complete. (The news was announced earlier this year, but for reasons unknown, it wasn’t mentioned here). As final bands Hamferd (FO) and Scarlet Stories (NL) have been added to the already impressive line-up. As is well known, Orden Ogan (DE) is headlining, and we have also secured the likes of Narnia (SE), Leaves’ Eyes (FIN/DE), Majestica (SE) and Temperance (ITA).

The organisation states: We are particularly proud of the addition of Hamferd. Not before a band from the Faroe Islands played at the Brainstorm Festival. And Hamferd has been on our wish list for years. Now it is really going to happen. Heavy metal, with deep grunts and plaintive vocals, that is what Hamferd has to offer.

No less proud are we of Scarlet Stories, the Dutch progressive rock/metal band that is causing a furore in our country. The band was supposed to play at our 2020 edition, which had to be cancelled at the last minute due to corona measures. We are therefore very happy that Scarlet Stories will be playing after all.

The total line-up for the 14th edition of the Brainstorm Festival is now as follows:

We are living in strange times. It’s also a very difficult time for (full-time) musicians: not being able to tour and give concerts. So they need other ways to stay in toch with their fans, that is why so many artists give virtual concerts this past year. So will modern melodic metal band Metalite who will give a virtual gig this August. The band has the following to say:

Finally, there will be a digital streaming live show!

We are so excited to finally play live for our world audience. We’re going to play new songs from the new album ”A Virtual World”, and of course a lot of the old ones. There will be a hell of a show with all the energy you can imagine!

The show will be free of charge but if you feel to support the band, which we will appreciate very much in this strange covid situation, you can follow the instructions to donate. We hope that you will be a part of this special night with us!

Evanescence and Halestorm are returning to the concert stage in the U.S. this fall. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will kick off Friday, November 5 in Portland, Oregon, and take the bands to arenas across the country before wrapping up in the Northeast right before the holidays.

The tour will bring together two of the top women in rock — Amy Lee and Lzzy Hale — for a truly badass experience night after night. Close friends as well as close collaborators, just last year, Lzzy performed back-up vocals on Evanescence‘s “rollicking non-partisan protest song” (MTV) ‘Use My Voice’ and Amy joined Lzzy on a new version of Halestorm‘s ‘Break In’. In addition to new music and the biggest hits from both women, the shows will highlight their personal bond and the music that’s come of it.

Amy said: “Words can’t express how excited we are to go back on tour with our friends and rock out again. We’ve been building this new music in isolation for over a year and dreaming of what it will be like to finally play it live, and to experience it together with our fans for the first time. We can’t wait to see you there!”
