We are sorry to announce that Raging Storm cancelled their appearence at Up The Hammers Festival. The cause for that is personal between the band members.

This is Sacred Blood, a new killer epic metal band rising from Greece and you will have the chance to watch them live at Up the hammers festival. Sacred blood are about to release their first album "The Battle of Thermopylae: The Chronicle" in April.
