The Roadburn festival has gained a real monumental status amongst metal and rock fans around the planet. The festival has become such an ultimate popular event during the past few years that tickets for the festival have been sold out within less than one hour. What makes the Roadburn festival such popular ? Well firstly bands of course, as the festival offers such a diverse line-upl covering a wide range of music from the underground psychedelic and rock, avant-garde stuff, doom or any other variation of metal stuff pleasing the fans of the music and above all the general atmosphere. Metal-Rules got an excellent privilege of visiting the Roadburn festival for the second time in a row to see a plenty of killer bands, smell the taste of the weed and enjoy Triptykon. However as it is widely know the volcanic outburst in Iceland caused nothing but a tremendous headache for the organization of the Roadburn festival. As all the flights were canceled and airports were closed cos ashes of clouds were rolling over Europe resulting several bands were unable to arrive at the Roadburn festival. For example the Swedish doom legends Candlemass was forced to cancel, and Jesu, Evoken and so on. The Norwegians had troubles in getting at Roadburn, but however made it. As several bands didn’t have any other choices, but cancels the appearance that resulted the whole schedule had to be remade and re-arranged. Despite big cancellations, there were after all tons of magic and unique bands on the stage and magic music.
