||After the recent announcement, adding Black Metal legends BEHEMOTH, VAGOS METAL FEST is triumphing with another high class batch of bands for their 5th edition, taking place between July 30th – August 1st 2020 in Vagos! The ultimate metal festival under the sun of Portugal, has just confirmed folk metal collective, ELUVEITIE, co-headlining in 2020! Formed in 2002, the band uniquely fuses a Gothenburg styled melodic death metal powerfully mixed with ancient folk melodies and themes, and belongs to the fore-fronting pioneers of the „New Wave Of Folk Metal“. VAGOS METAL FEST, known for the diversity of acts sharing their annual festival stage, is proud to welcome one of the most distinctive folk metal bands on the heavy music planet!
While speaking of diversity: Vancouver, Canada based UNLEASH THE ARCHERS span the gap between various forms of metal in perfection. With genre-blending as their speciality, the resulting product is a potent mix of intelligent songwriting and technically versatile musicianship. Guttural screams likened to blackened death combined with the soaring wails of a four-octave mezzo-soprano in power-metal style have created a sound unlike anything else in the scene. Their wildly entertaining show will definitely stick with you long after the festival is over! Last but not least, VAGOS METAL FEST is thrilled to announce US hardcore punk and thrashcore veterans, D.R.I.! Dirty Rotten Imbeciles, who burst into the underground scene in 1982, never gained a mainstream audience, but the integration of their hardcore punk roots with thrash metal influences was a stylistic catalyst for their contemporaries — most notably Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity, or Stormtroopers of Death— alongside whom they are considered pioneers of what would later be called “crossover thrash.” VAGOS METAL FEST is beyond proud to announce today’s very special mix of pioneering bands to rising talents, who will be joining the eclectic line-up of acts such as BEHEMOTH, TESTAMENT, HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY, ASPHYX and TROLLFEST, with many more to be announced in the time ahead!
The 5th edition of VAGOS METAL FEST will be taking place between July 30th – August 1st 2020 in Vagos close to Porto, weekend passes, which would make a lovely Xmas gift, are now available at THIS LOCATION! Start your holiday plans and join an unforgettable metal trip in Portugal next summer!
