heidenfest 2013

5, 6 October Oberhausen and Tilburg Every folk- and paganfan knows it by now; Heidenfest. This year it was hard to escape this great feast.

Folk-metal.nl joined the Heidenfest in Oberhausen and Tilburg. What follows below is a total review, because both shows weren’t much different.

Niflheim Festival 2013

Niflheim-Festival-II

By: Charlotte Date: 2-3-2013 On a cold saturday in early spring we travelled down to the German city Stuttgart for the Niflheim festival. With the promise of almost ten hours of music provided by eight bands, the excitement was quite high. Apparently there were some technical problems right before the opening of the venue which made the organisation decide to open the doors later than announced. When we arrived to the venue there was a long line of people waiting to get in.

Ensiferum – ‘Unsung Heroes’ (2012)

ensiferum unsung heroes

By: Nick Score: 8/10 Release: 27-8-2012 It was quiet for a while in the camp of Ensiferum. The last we heard from them was “From Afar” which dates from 2009. But when the summer came, we heard signs that these Finns are still alive, and preparing for a new album. Slowly we were tempted for this new studio album, with ‘Burning Leaves’ that was played live, and the video for “In My sword I trust’ which was recently released.

Metalfest, Loreley 2012

metalfestopenairs2012_webflyer

Location: Loreley, Duitsland By: Nick Photography: Laurie Roijackers Besides the traveling series of concerts like Paganfest and Heidenfest, Rock the Nation is working on their own touring festival called ‘Metalfest’. Biggest concern of this was that there weren’t any plans for this festival to come near Holland. This changed with the coming of Metalfest Loreley, which is just a 2 hour drive from the Dutch border. A beautiful location (an amphitheatre, up in the mountains besides the Rhine), amazing weather and a great line-up with an even better sound were promising for a great festival. Like the name implies, there … Read More

Black Troll Winterfest (2011)

black troll winterfest 2011

Black Troll Winterfest Locatie: RWE Halle, Mülheim an der Ruhr (DE) 12 November 2011 Door: Michel en Colin Foto’s: Feenstaub Entertainment (tenzij anders vermeld) 10:00 uur gaat de zaal open, 10:20 begint de eerste band, maar, de zaal gaat niet open? De rij is gigantisch (gelukkig mogen wij al vooraan in een halletje gaan staan). Als de tussendeuren openen (waar we nog niet door mogen) horen we dat de eerste band, Draugr, nog aan het soundchecken is… dat is laat! Als we om 10:20 eindelijk de zaal in mogen, het moment dat het Italiaanse Draugr zou moeten beginnen, zijn die … Read More

Heidenfest 2010

Heidenfest 2010

Heidenfest 2010 Tivoli, Utrecht 19 September 2010 Recensent: Michel Het is weer tijd voor de Heidenfest tour, deze doet ook dit jaar weer Nederland aan en we besluiten om dit keer eens de tour in ons eigen land te bezoeken. Rock the Nation heeft weer eens een mooie line-up neer weten te zetten, waarvan ik alleen de afsluiter niet helemaal begrijp. De overige bands zijn bij voorbaat al om je vingers bij af te likken. Heidevolk Voor wie nu nog niet door had dat Heidevolk geen bandje meer is: De band ging mee met de Heidenfest tour. Waarom in hemelsnaam … Read More
