Wacken Open Air Metal Festival, GermanyVOLBEAT RETURN TO WACKEN FOR THEIR ONLY EUROPEAN SHOW IN 2012

The band we are talking about in the following is part of the small range of artists who managed it to add a new sub-genre to the metal scene! Of course, we are speaking about no one less then VOLBEAT!

They belong to the absolute top newcomer acts – Danish Dynamite! Their last album „Beyond Hell / Above Heaven“, which was released back in 2010, was honored as fourth record in a row with a “golden record” and catapulted the band from Copenhagen a further step in direction ROCK-OLYMPUS! You´ll never get enough from this danish combo! The title of their upcoming live album (to be released on the 18th November 2011) is also definitely characteristic for their live appearances, which will take you through metals heaven and hell together! While there were no European live appearances expected in 2012, we have spared no efforts to get the band back to Wacken where they will play an exclusive unique show. This will be a their only European Live Show in 2012 – for sure a true “Night to Remember”!
