FULL METAL JUKE BOX Vol. IIIOct 23rd, 2007
In cooperation with the ZYX label, the ICS festival service and the promotion company CMM Wolfgang Rott, a compilation series has been created for the biggest and most renowned Heavy Metal festival in Europe, the “WACKEN OPEN AIR”. Three double-CDs, all of them being released in 2008, cover the various musical areas of this festival. As there are only bands on this sampler which have, at least once, been part of the festival, it is undoubtedly the perfect mood-setter for the upcoming W:O:A 2008 or a great review on past festivals. Part I (Hard Rock/Heavy Metal/Power Metal) and II (Death, Thrash and Metalcore) have already been released on March 23rd and June 22nd.
On November 23rd, part III of this trilogy will be released, honouring Black Metal, Gothic Folk and Pagan Metal bands. Part of this CD are songs from Borknagar, Naglfar, Old Man´s Child, Samael, Belphegor, Dimmu Borgir, Gorgorth, Graveworm, Dornenreich, Ancient, Eisregen, 1349, Emperor, Haggard, The Vision Bleak, Vintersorg, Korpliklaani, Tristania, TYR, Subway To Sally, Therion, Lacuna Coil, Moonspell, Sentenced, The Gathering, Tiamat, Turisas, Theatre Of Tragedy and Crematory.
