Cult Finnish death metallers DEMILICH have reformed and released complete anthology of their recordings and we're more than happy to confirm that Demilich will appear on our festival stage for the first time! HEAVEN SHALL BURN will bring their healthily pissed off metalcore and Swedish doom metal icons KATATONIA will return to our festival with their full set as their latest show at last year's edition was affected by technical and personal problems. Again from Finland, gloomy Russian-themed doom metal will be performed by KYPCK. Post-rock/shoegaze scene will be represented by LANTLÔS from Germany while MUSHROOMHEAD will perform their experimental music for the first time at our fest.
