Two More Bands Announced For ‘Elements Of Rock 2012’ [Next Month]


Elements Of Rock are pleased to announce two more bands: Stairway [Heavy Metal, GB] and Opus Irae [Black / Dark Metal, D].

The Englishmen of Stairway are rocking the stages since more than 20 years and made ​​a mark worldwide with their classic metal in the tradition of NWoBHM. With their first record they reached even the Japanese charts. So it’s about time to invite them to EoR. Listen below to New Life from Stairway‘s latest album Interregnum [2010].

With Opus Irae we present a young aspiring black metal band from Germany. Although the band is new to the scene, the musicians are already known from other bands and were standing with them on big stages like the EoR or Wacken.

Other bands are: Barren Cross [US],  Crimson Moonlight [Black / Death Metal, SWE)] A Hill to Die Upon [Death / Black, USA], Icon Clan [rock, FIN], Exhale [Grindcore, SWE], Dark Sky [Melodic Metal, D],  Pertness [Power Metal , CH], Endtime Prophecy [D Melodic Death Metal], Scylla Revenge [Metal Core, CH] and Antaraxid [Metalcore, CH].

Timon Kokott, vocalist of the German thrash metal band, Fallen Walls‘, is also a gifted and aspiring “Metal-signatory.” Inspired of the atmosphere and the opportunities offered at the stage he will take during the two evening concerts, brush in hand. ! On the results, we are excited. About Timon‘s work HERE.

Unfortunately due to health reasons, it is not possible for Grave Declaration to play EoR.

News about the day program: As usual the UNBLACK association organizes a festival day program in which also performing artists are engaged: per example Pilgrim of Crimson Moonlight does a seminar, Barren Cross’ Jim LaVerde leads the worship band und Frank Breuninger of Dark Sky contributes to one of the services. Sad that Pastor Bob Beeman isn’t able to attend this year’s EoR due to medical issues.

Elements Of Rock will be held March 16 – 18 2012, Stadthofsaal, Uster, Switserland. For more information visit the EOR website.
