TESTAMENT
TESTAMENT are true metal legends and their albums "The Legacy" or "The New Order" are among metal´s true diamonds! TESTAMENT and their records belong to the history of heavy metal and with "The Formation Of Damnation" they have delivered their sharpest, leanest, heaviest and most prophetic set of songs for two decades. The quintessential modern heavy metal band, the undisputedly enormous influence over a whole nu generation of aural aggressors. With "The Formation Of Damnation" Testament have deliciously served up "old school' without the old, a crushingly heavy album without the weight of oppression, all crisp and lively like a ball-pin hammer-wielding maniac intent on bashing your brains to a pulp.
This year, the legends return with their brand new album - it´s considered the metal highlight 2012 and be sure, they have topped their last killer record! TESTAMENT rule, doubtlessly! And we are very happy to welcome them to this year´s METALCAMP!

EPICA
You don't believe in fairytales at all? You think there is no more romance today? At this year's METALCAMP you will find out that fairytales certainly become reality! Both - the history and the music of the dutch formation EPICA resembles to a magical myth. The majestic mix of Classical music, Gothic and Heavy Metal could be the soundtrack of a fantasy epos as well. Mystical synthie parts mix up with orchestral bombastic choirs and a classical set up at its best. Over the top you find the ravishing beauty and vocalist Simone Simons with her operatic and dynamic voice, which enchants everybody and everything.
With "Requiem For The Indifferent" the band returns more epic than ever! Full of trademark hymns, significant lyrics, powerful guitar riffing alternated with cinematic interludes. Let persuade you from the magical fantasy of EPICA at your upcoming metal-holidays!

NILE
Attention to all death-metal loving hobby-archeologists! If you intend to spend your holidays at this year's METALCAMP festival, be aware of going on an adventurous expedition trough the great and dark empire of the pharaohs. This trip will be led by Mr. Death-Metal-Tourist-Guide Karl Sanders and his brute legion of NILE, who invite you to a special musical journey: Historical background meets high-technical, sophisticated death-steel. The Egyptologists produce massive attacks with rigorous precision that blow up your heads in the name of the cursed gods. The most important thing for NILE is to create a complex and exact sound, which should be comparable with the architecture of the pyramids. Quickly they always reach the point: Everything's about brutal music with high measure of cleverness. Definitely, this music makes Anubis feel being a puppy!
