Think heavy, think thrash, think tech but ultimately stay progressive and groove on!
Kicking off for the third consecutive year, we give you none others but the pioneers of all things \m/, the almighty CORONER.
Joining them, after long last are Greece's very own, Acid Death. And if you think this can't get any better...well, you're wrong.
We have some eclectic surprises coming for a day that will leave your ears happy and brain... updated.
Pre-sale started with a 2-day tickets to OVER THE WALL FESTIVAL III at 44€ and now we are delighted (and clearly insane) to offer you day tickets at the price of 24€.
Get yours now is an understatement... ;)
Coroner equals respect. This is one of the few bands that are unequivocally admired by musicians, press and fans alike. Tommi Vetterli is moderately described as an ingenious guitarist and more often than not, as the late Martin Eric Ain put it: “a guitar god”.
No More Color and Mental Vortex are among the crown jewels of tech thrash whereas their seminal release Grin, transcends all labels. It was released back in 1993 and to this day, it is described as thrash, prog, groove, avant-garde, industrial and everything in between. That together with its permanent high ranking on every list of the most influential tech/thrash albums ever, proves how ahead of its time that album really was. If not, there is more!
Coroner released a documentary in 2016, called Rewind. Other than being a great watch, it also demonstrates the reverence they enjoy from bands such as Kreator, Opeth, Sodom, Celtic Frost and artists as diverse as Chris von Rohr, Franz Treichler and Max Cavalera.
And if you think all this belongs in the past, you'd better think again. Their reunion and subsequent tour in 2011-2012, found them performing in the largest metal festivals in Europe such as Wacken and Hellfest, while the rumors of a new album sometime in 2018, have us all on the edge of our seats...
Acid Death is one of the most iconic Greek metal bands. To call them cult would be both unfair and an understatement since the second part of their career is even more impressive than the first.
They began their journey in 1989 and to this day and by 2001, they had 4 official releases all of which received great reviews and led them on the doorsteps of a great record deal. Society's conservativism however, appears to have had other plans... and the band falls apart.
Nearly 10 years went by and they remained one of the most respected bands of the scene. Their much-awaited return in 2011 led to the release of Eidolon, a re-release of their back catalogue and a European tour with Master.
Their latest release Hall of Mirrors ranked high in progressive death metal albums of that year around the world. This is probably why they are often regarded as death metal's hidden treasure especially by audiences abroad who, in recent years, have begun to discover Greek metal. Complex and tech yet very much in-your-face, ladies and gentlemen, we give you Acid Death. (You're welcome).
If you have never seen one or all of them live before, you're in for a treat... and if you have, you know we're right!
