Hellfest organizers commented:

“Hellbangers,

What can we say except that we are proud (and excited) to finally unveil the long-awaited line up of our anniversary edition! Keeping such a line up as a secret for several weeks has been no easy task, especially in the last few days…

It’s been more than 16 months since our work rhythm was turned upside down by the arrival of this virus, since the live music industry was extinguished. Despite this, our confidence has never been affected and we have kept working with a positive mindset.

The frustration of two years without a festival has led us to dream even bigger about our reunion! In 2022, we are offering a new and unique format spread over 10 days! Never done before, this formula will, without a doubt, remain in the history of so-called “extreme” music! Twice as historic, because this formula is meant to exist only in 2022 and will not happen again in the years to come.

After a first weekend from 17 to 19th June 2022, we double the fun with an additional weekend from 23rd to 26th June! A real marathon that will see no less than 350 artists on 6 stages!

As usual, the festival does not deviate from its principles: you will see artists capable of performing in stadiums, with artists who are usually playing in smaller venues, and for some even in pub caves. Punk, Heavy, Black, Hardcore, Death, Stoner, Pagan, Power, we have done our best to put together what we believe to be the “edition of the century”.

No need to list the program in detail as you are not, and for the second year, headbanging at the festival right now. You can find out all this by yourself, at home or with your friends, enjoying our virtual edition “Hellfest From Home“! (More information over here : fromhome.hellfest.fr)

This exceptional edition is also an opportunity for us to thank the pass holders who have been waiting for more than 2 years. Your loyalty and trust have kept us going and we do not have enough words to thank you. It seemed fair to us that you should access the ticket sale 24 hours before the public sale in order for you to obtain your ticket for sure.

We are aware that some of you, for professional, family or simply financial reasons, will not be able to attend this XXL edition. By going through (and only through!) our partner TICKETSWAP (please stop Viagogo and others…), you will be able to resell your pass for the weekend you are the least interested in, and thus make one more happy fan!

For all the others who will have the chance to live these 10 days of anthology with us, we promise that you will remember our reunion! As a bonus, we might even make you a nice “FINISHER” t-shirt so that this moment will remain engraved forever in your memories. Once in a lifetime celebration!

Last but not least, we could not finish without thanking all those who have supported us during these last months. Volunteers, intermittents, sponsors, service providers, media partners, people from Clisson, we are all eager to see you again and to live with you this future adventure, which promises to be historic!

Stay Strong. Stay Safe.

Sepultura To Release “SepulQuarta” Album In August

Sepultura will be releasing a new compilation album titled “SepulQuarta” on August 13. The effort will feature various quarantine performances that were recorded for their series of the same name. Andreas Kisser commented:

“‘SepulQuarta‘ was born at the very beginning of the pandemic when everything was halted. We had a new album out, but we couldn’t tour for it.

SepulQuarta kept us alive and strong throughout one of the most difficult times in human history.”

Kreator Reveal Producer For New Album

During a recent appearance on the Metalitalia Podcast, Kreator vocalist/guitarist Mille Petrozza talked a bit about the band’s upcoming album. Notably, he also revealed that Arthur Rizk will produce the effort.

Petrozza said the following about release plans:

“Last summer, in August, we felt that we were done [writing], and we were very enthusiastic about, like, ‘Okay, this is almost an album. We have 12 songs. And we take the 10 best, or whatever we come up with.’ And we already planned on going into the studio in February. Now it’s February, and the world is still kind of fucked with the COVID. So we have to wait and be patient.

I want the album to come out and go on a world tour right afterwards. I don’t see us putting out a COVID album, or something, and just have it [disappear]. And people go, like, ‘Okay, there was an album. Okay, they have a new album or not? Am I going to this tour or not?’

I know that the world is changing — albums don’t have the importance that they might have had 10 years ago anymore — but I refuse to believe that. Especially in metal, there’s still a lot of people that celebrate an album from the beginning to the end. And I think the last genre of music where this is gonna die will be metal, because people really love albums.

I think going on a tour, the artwork, everything has to connect. So we’ll wait until that’s possible again, and then we’ll put out the album.”

He also added the following about the direction of the new music and the band’s plans to work with Rizk:

“It’s definitely different. It’s hard for me to describe, but I think it’s definitely more thrash again. It has a lot of melody, and it has a lot of traditional parts, and it has a lot of ingredients of the last four or five albums. But it also has some very old-school moments. I think it’s definitely the next step.”

“At this point, it looks like we’re working with Arthur Rizk. That’s what we have planned at this point. And I’m kind of exchanging demo tapes and discussing recording techniques [with him]. So, yeah, it looks like we’re working with Arthur.”

Mille Petrozza Says Kreator Have “15 Songs And Counting” For Their New Album

Kreator’s Mille Petrozza has taken to social media to reflect on 2020. Notably, he also mentioned that the band currently have “15 songs and counting” for their next album.

Petrozza said the following:

“Ok, let’s wrap up 2020.

Maybe one of the most productive years for me. I have 15 songs and counting for the next @kreatorofficial! We released our live album “ London Apocalypticon”, plus the new single” 666- World Divided” earlier this year. Apart from this, my personal highlight was connecting with old and new friends on a deeper level. Something touring doesn’t allow me to do sometimes, since I am always somewhere.

I got to read tons of cool books, discovered amazing new music and watched some great movies. Most importantly, I stayed healthy, and I hope you did too!

Ok, sometimes I was bored, so see my top 10 playlist in the comment section. What’s yours?

What were your highlights and lowlights in 2020?

See you in 21! The new year will be spectacular! I can feel it.”
