There is this ideology that the French are high-class, self-obsessed, fashion moguls. Bah! I got news for you – the French hold some of the wicked Metal Festivals!
Scroll down the blog and you will notice that a review has been written for Hell Fest which is annually held in Clisson.
It is an extreme Metal festival with the most extreme assortment of bands. In 2011, expect to see Mayhem, Black Dahlia Murder, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions, Opeth, Anathema, Sodom and a number of other brutal messiahs.
Being the Metal history – digger, I found a lot of controversy surrounding Hell Fest. The controversy revolves around religious and right – winged politicians who have criticised sponsors and supporters of Hell Fest as it is associated with satanic acts.
Metal Heads – Go figure!
The idea to hold a festival in the castle of Princess d’Arenberg began in 2000 with the intentions of having regional progressive rock and metal acts. The festival grew over the years and a number of foreigners are always expected.
The festival is still small but nonetheless – we dedicate it to the cause of Metal.
The website has tons of information. Keep a look out for 2011!
