Dawn of winter
While heaven wept
Tribute to Dio
First of all we would like to send our condolences to the Family of the mighty Ronnie James Dio. Not much words to say about this sad event for music in general everyone knows Dio cannot be replaced, may the lords of light be with him. We decided to make a special show to honor him.
On Saturday night after the festival is over we will have a Greek all star band playing songs that Dio has sang on featuring John Tsimas - Bass (Airged Lamh Dexter Ward), Manolis Tsigos Guitars (Inner Wish), George Thanasopoulos Drums (AIrged Lamh), Yiannis Papanikolaou Vocals (x-Inner Wish, x-Battleroar). We will also invite singers from the bands performing to the festival to sing one song if they want.
Now about the new bands on the line up we have the great new comers Hurlement from France and Skull Fist from Canada. Dawn of Winter from Germany will bring doom over Athens while the Legendary Ostrogoth and Sacred Steel will be back in Athens many years to remind us the great Heavy Metal Assault festival. Last but not least the band that you, the friends of the festival, voted the most in our competition. The mighty Solstice from England, in a live performance that you will never forget. Having a band chosen by you is another proof that this festival belongs to you the fans and it will go on as long as you support it. So here is the billing so far.
