Metal at the Gates (English full version)
Switzerland is normally associated the beautiful mountains of the Alps. But from Switzerland there are a lot of outstanding rock and metal bands like Gotthard, Krokus, Shakra or Eluveitie. There is also a wide variety of bands (Burning Witches, Wicked Plan, November 7, Crystal Ball and many others) in this small country in the heart of Europe. Sadly, the performance opportunities are quite negligible for these smaller bands, so the musicians frequently take the initiative and organize their own small festivals. This is how the Female Metal Festival in Meyrin (Canton of Geneva) got started and it’s on its third round.
Organized as a small but fine festival by members of Alkemy from Geneva in cooperation with Wings Music Events, the show will take place at Undertown, a small club for up to 250 music fans.
The hosts of the evening – who else but Alkemy? – are currently working on a conceptional album to support victims of violence. The Crowdfunding campaign, which was specially designed for this, but it unfortunately did not bring the desired success. Through profits of the festival it is hoped that the Swiss will be able to complete their ambitious project. And this goal is likely to be met with guests, including three bands from France and Italy.
Nightmare from Grenoble, France play classic Power Heavy Metal. This spring they were on a larger European tour and played in the biggest Metal Cruise the world, the 70,000 Tons f Metal. Also from France, but from Strasbourg, is Dust In Mind. They toured this year as the support of the Swedish Pain around the singer and guitarist Peter Tägtgren. The third band Aevum comes from the Italian metropolis of Turin. The Italians play a mixture of neo-classical opera metal and gothic metal. A trademark of the band is the high soprano voice of singer Lucille.
