So as the world continues to adapt to the new normal, Wacken has announced a special online concert from July 29 to Aug 1 featuring monster bands like Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Trivium, but as well as a couple of bands from right here in Asia: Philippines’ Valley of Chrome and Bangladesh’s Trainwreck.
“We’re trying to bring you something unique because technically we’re trying to set new standards. We do nothing less than the biggest mixed reality show of all time. That means full-fledged live performances and no boring living room concerts in an unprecedented form for the full dose of metal at your home, in the garden, at the lake – Rain or Shine or Online!
Our digital streaming festival brings you not only these unique concerts of classic W:O:A crowd favorites but also newcomers, exclusive interviews and conversations, insights behind the scenes, and much more. For that Wacken feeling the Wacken Foundation, the Metal Battle and other well-known and beloved faces will of course be joining us as well.”
When we asked the vocalist of Valley of Chrome, Rogel, about getting involved he said “So Wacken Open Air is celebrating this year’s festivities via online streaming. So they had us record a performance to be streamed alongside the other chosen bands who performed from past Wacken Open Air shows, it was a pleasant surprise actually. Hehe. Alongside the new content will be Wacken archives from Slayer Iron Maiden, Arch Enemy, In Flames etc. Our management, Numinous has a set up with Kolin Electronics. Where we filmed content and live footage to be streamed by Numinous TV. A lot of bands under Numinous have been creating live stuff to be streamed soon since shows are impossible now. We figured this is a nice thing to do to keep our bands active and present.”
The boys go live on the 29th:
11pm Philippine Time
5pm German Time
