With much pride and without further ado we reveal the line-up for Tongeren Metal Fest 2015, Belgium’s loudest metal festival set to take place Saturday 2nd of May 2015 at de VELINX in Tongeren. ENSLAVED, SCHIRENC PLAYS PUNGENT STENCH, BÖLZER, BODYFARM, INSANITY REIGNS SUPREME and DISINTERRED will make their appearance at the second edition of the festival.
With headliners ENSLAVED and SCHIRENC PLAYS PUNGENT STENCH the bar has been set high. The Norwegian progressive black/viking metal quintet ENSLAVED will present their new album exclusively in Belgium at Tongeren Metal Fest. Martin Schirenc – along with his two partners in crime – will perform all original and classic PUNGENT STENCH songs under the flag of ‘SCHIRENC PLAYS PUNGENT STENCH’. Viva La Muerte!
The emerging Swiss death/black metal duo BÖLZER left a deep impression with their two EP’s ‘Aura’ and ‘Soma’. Before they shake de VELINX to its foundations in May, you can catch the band live during their tour with metal titans BEHEMOTH and at the EINDHOVEN METAL MEETING in December.
As always, special attention is given to new and upcoming talent. After discovering the Dutch death metallers BODYFARM, the festival had to look no further. Local heroes INSANITY REIGNS SUPREME and DISINTERRED will kickstart the evening.
The brand new official festival trailer can be viewed right here:
The very first edition of the festival took place earlier this year and featured ASPHYX, ANGEL WITCH, HERDER and many more. This festival is the follow-up to De VELINX’s annual metalfestival ‘Metaal Paaskabaal’, which featured artists like Hail Of Bullets, Ostrogoth, Gama Bomb, Paul Di’Anno and many others. The Tongeren Metal Festival artwork, created by Dries Gaerdelen, was inspired by the tale of Ambiorix and highlights the festival’s macabre mascot.
