+LICH KING (Thrash Metal/USA – Independent) – Unapologetically straight-forward thrash metal in the vein of the 80’s Bay Area bands such as Exodus, Slayer, and Vio-lence. To date, the band has released five critically acclaimed full-length albums, each of which feature fast, headbangable riffs in modern stomp anthems and a sometimes comedic yet always violent songwriting sensibility. One of the icons of the genre, touring Europe for the third time.
+SEAX (Speed Metal/USA – EBM Records) – Fast, old-school speed metal, from maniacs to maniacs. After releasing 3 acclaimed albums and touring over US, now it’s time for Seax to hit European stages for the first time.
+RAVAGE (Heavy Metal/USA – Metal Blade Recs) – Since the mid 90’s Ravage is around spreading their blend between the melodies of Iron Maiden/Helloween with the raw power of thrashers like Testament and Kreator. Currently promoting their latest Album ‘Return of the Spectral Rider’ released in 2017.
+CONDITION CRITICAL (Thrash Metal/USA – Independent) – Also known by the nickname ‘Demolition Hammer Jr.’ you know what to expect. ‘In your face’ thrash metal, pushed to it’s limits. Touring for the second time in Europe, currently promotion their well sophomore album Extermination Plan.
+EXIT SMASHED (Thrash Metal/Germany – Independent) – Guilty for a lot of blasted stages and sneakers in the pit, Exit Smashed established a reputation in and around Hamburg, supporting major acts like Municipal Waste, Flotsam & Jetsam, Dust Bolt and Evil Invaders, among others. After a short but successful tour in 2016, Exit Smashed plans to decimate Europe again, this time promoting their upcoming sophomore Album.
Greek extremists ROTTING CHRIST are back in Burgas 20 years after their first performance in Bulgaria in the same town (April 18, 1998). On April 21, 2018 they will join the stage in Boycho Branzov Sports Hall.
Local support are THE REVENGE PROJECT, VRANI VOLOSA, THE OUTER LIMITS and 8 M/S. Special guests are Greek Thrash Metal veterans SPIDER KICKERS.
Glenn Tipton of Judas Priest fame has taken the decision to step away from his touring duties due to his worsening condition related to Parkinson’s. He insists that he isn’t leaving the band, but instead that his role has, in his own words, “changed”.
The diagnosis was made 10 years ago, but apparently it has caused some major problems recently, which prompted him to make that difficult decision.
In a statement the band claim that Glenn can still play and perform some of the band’s material, but due to the progression of the disease, he won’t be touring as much as he used to.
We also know that his on-stage replacement comes in the form of the producer of their upcoming album Firepower Andy Sneap. The choice was made by Glenn, but that choice isn’t final. Tipton himself doesn’t rule out the possibility of going onstage with his fellow bandmates whenever his condition allows him to.
