5 new bands were added to the 2020 lineup, Rotting Christ, H. Philip Anselmo & The Illegals, Despised Icon, Wormrot and Wolves In The Throne Room!

This is the Festival's official announcement:

Rotting Christ : Many believe that their show at MetalDays 2019 was one of the best shows MetalDays ever witnessed. It was so impressive that we were sorry for booking them only as co-headliners. We needed to fix that somehow, so the next logical step was to book them as headliners for 2020. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you … ROTTING CHRIST ...

Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals performing a Vulgar Display of Pantera: Phil is keeping his promise after the cancellation in 2019 and will melt your faces with a set of legendary songs by one of the greatest metal bands of all time, Pantera! We can’t wait to hear „Walk“, „Mouth for War“, „I’m broken“ and other timeless classics blasting away from our stage!

Despised Icon: Often called the pioneers of deathcore, Canadian beasts “Despised Icon” are back on the scene with their new album coming out this November. We are stoked to host them on MetalDays for the first time ever and we are sure their show is not going to leave anyone indifferent!

Wormrot: Coming all the way from Singapore, Wormrot is a well known name to anyone who loves a bit more extreme metal music. These guys are taking very seriously what they are doing and they are considered to be one of the best grindcore bands out there. Don’t miss your chance to see them live!

Wolves In The Throne Room: This band is anything but an ordinary black metal band. By combining long ambient passages, melodic riffs, intense synths and heavy drum beats, this trio from Olympia, USA, wants to take the listener on a journey through the landscape of their homeland. Words won’t do any justice here, you simply need to experience their performance yourself!
