metal music, and refreshing streams of Sventoji that brims over entire

quality are Norwegians SUSPERIA playing melodic black/thrash metal and
Swedish IN MOURNING with their progressive death keynotes. The gloomy
shadows will descend to mystic depths and enter the abyss with blackest
screams in blending melodic tunes, lyrics, and voices preached by French
genius ALCEST and his spectacular atmospheric metal.

spirit OBTEST and incredibly perspective death metal youngsters PARALYTIC.
