Third headliner: SOEN
Proudly presenting our third and final headliner, SOEN from Sweden. Remember their excellent performance a few years back at PP Europe? With their new album there was no doubt to invite them back, as headliner this time. So be there, you do not wan’t to miss them.
Second headliner: VOYAGER
Proudly presenting our second headliner, VOYAGER from Australia. The band already played twice at PP Europe. In 2014 they also headlined the event as a replacement for PAGAN’S MIND. Now they will be back as headliner again, with a show of at least 90 minutes. If you missed them before, don’t miss them this time, VOYAGER are one of the best live bands we had on stage, it will be FUN!
First headliner: TESSERACT (uk)
There are albums to listen to and bands to watch perform but only an elite few musical collectives manifest creative work that must be experienced. Ascending to the forefront of the progressive hard rock and metal community through creative fearlessness and determination, TesseracT invite listeners on an expansive, esoteric, and atmospheric journey, constructing unique and immersive worlds within their music, all of it drenched in swirling layers of sound, distinctive melodies, and unapologetic experimentation.
What TesseracT has achieved with Polaris, released by their new UK label home Kscope, is nothing short of total liberation in an otherwise rigid genre. Many progressive metal bands will claim creative independence but in fact adhere to the same “rules” as anyone else. Much the way Tool, Deftones, and Radiohead created signature atmospheric fingerprints while reinvigorating their sound with each new album’s broadened horizons, TesseracT’s evolution is one of perpetual motion. The journey is itself the destination and the albums are the vehicles.
TesseracT has arrived at the highly coveted destination of true creative freedom through bold artistic risk-taking, which has resulted in a loyal audience who are not only comfortable with being challenged by each successive release, but demand to be. A new TesseracT recording is a gift to unwrap, a puzzle to solve, an adventure that beckons.
