Crimson Dawn (IT)
In Aevum Agere (IT)
This band has released two impeccable masterpieces of Epic Doom Metal, loudly lauded by fans and press alike. They have proven their outstanding live qualities sharing the stage with the likes of Sorcerer, Solstice, Sacred Steel and many others. Nobody wields the Hammer of Doom – forged in ancient times by Candlemass and Solitude Aeturnus – like they do.We had tried hard for SoDF I, but this year the Olympian Gods smiled on us at last. The Minotaur shall cross the waters, thus foretelleth the oracle. We are over the moon to present, for the first time in Austria: Epic Doom overlords Doomocracy from Crete. Only Doom shall reign! Aktuelles Album: „Visions and Creatures of Imagination“ (9,5/10 Punkte im Deaf Forever)
Founded in 2006 as Ethereal Sleep, they chose to go under a simpler, but simply ingenious, moniker three years later. Having thus reinvented the wheel of Doom, in a manner of speaking, and having so far released two highly acclaimed albums of epic and old-school, yet highly original Doom Metal, they were selected to play at Hammer of Doom (where they also recorded a cult live album) and Malta Doom Festival, to name a few.After a line-up change in 2017, they have now reunited with their original singer, whose otherworldly vocals are both fragile and powerful, being the perfect combination with their beautiful, heavy, emotional and gripping Doom Metal of the highest order. Many bands play (or claim to play) Doom, but not many bands manage to touch so deeply. They are ready again, and eager to carry you all away and fly into the sun.It is an incredible pleasure to have them here at last for an exclusive show.For the first time in Austria. Aktuelles Album: “Icarus” (8/10 Punkte im Rock Hard)
This legendary band was founded in 1987 by ex-members of obscure Italian cult Doom outfit BLACK HOLE. Since their reincarnation in 2012, they have released two highly acclaimed albums (“Crawling out of the Crypt” and “Claws”) and established themselves as a both utterly insane and totally intense live band – at renowned festivals like Hammer of Doom and Doom over Vienna, or on club stages all over Europe. They shall offer you the chalice of nepenthe, yet once you have experienced this theatre of lunacy and evil, you shall never forget. Crazy, cunning and clever – come witness the dark and ancient rites of Epitaph!
Aktuelles Album: “Claws” (8,5/10 Punkte im Deaf Forever, 8/10 Punkte im Metal Observer)
Imagine a compelling blend of grand Epic Doom, bold Power Metal and eerie Italian horror theatre. And now stop imagining and book your trip to Seeds Of Doom II already, because that’s exactly what this band delivers in their own unique way.They were founded in 2005 by Dario Beretta (DRAKKAR) and Emanuele Rastelli (CROWN OF AUTUMN) as a project combining shared musical interests, and then turned into an actual band three years later. Never the ones to compromise on quality and freedom of expression, they have released two superb and splendidly received albums and one EP and staged their highly entertaining live shows between Malta and Vienna, between Sweden and Greece.With an enviable sense of hooks and melodies forged into captivating anthems for eternity, they shall arise once again. Sons and daughters of Doom, soon you shall behold the dawn in crimson! For the first time in Salzburg.
