Mumbai-based death metal band Demonic Resurrection have just been announced to play at Wacken Open Air 2014. WOA is one of the worlds biggest metal festivals with almost 80,000 attendees in the small village of Wacken in Schleswig-Holstein, northern Germany.
DR has previously performed at the Inferno Metal Festival and Brutal Assault in 2010. Formed in the year 2000, DR has stood strong for 14 years with very few lineup changes and have released an EP followed by three studio albums in this period, in addition to their amazing repertoire of live performances. They have also bagged the Metal Hammer Golden God Award for Global Metal in 2010.
The official Wacken announcement reads From India comes the blackened death metal band Demonic Resurrection. The band was founded in 2000 and has already released three dark studio albums and an EP next to their extensive live experience. They will rock Wacken for the first time!
When asked about how it feels to be one of the bands set to perform at the WOA, frontman Demonstealer says It’s very hard to put into words exactly how it feels. For us it’s still just a small step forward but when you’ve been busting your ass for 14 years it definitely feels like a big deal, given that it is the coveted Wacken Open Air, the festival most metal heads dream about playing or attending. It’s definitely going to be a religious experience and we’re going to deliver a kick-ass performance. It feels good to see that our hard work and perseverance is paying off.”
Demonic Resurrection will be playing alongside the biggest metal acts in the world at WOA 2014 which include Behemoth, Saxon, Kreator, Emperor, King Diamond and Motorhead among others. The band is also set to release a new album sometime this year on Candlelight Records worldwide and on Universal Music in India.
