House of Metal Swedene Unleashes Anthrax, Gloryhammer, PAIN

Sweden's most prominent indoor festival unleashed this line up today!
one cannot do anything but feel joy about this amazing line up, and more bands are on its way!

House of Metal is very proud to present five new bands for the 11th edition of the festival held during 3-4 March 2017.

American thrash metal veterans Anthrax doesn't perhaps require a long introduction. But for the uninitiated, the band was formed in 1981 and is considered to belong to the "Big Four of Thrash" along with Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer. The band has during their career released no less than 11 full-length album with classic titles such as "Fistful of Metal", "Spreading the Disease", "Persistence of Time" and the album "Among the Living" that will be performed in its entirety as a part of its 30th anniversary at next years festival. 

The symphonic power metal band Gloryhammer was founded in 2010 by Christopher Bowes also known as the singer/keyboardist in Alestorm. The band has since its inception released two albums, played at many of Europe's major festivals and toured with bands like Stratovarius and Blind Guardian. Early next year, the band is scheduled to hit the the road together with Hammerfall, but also to do a gig at House of Metal in March. 

The Raven Age is a melodic heavy metal band from England founded in 2009 by Dan Wright and George Harris (son of Iron Maiden's Steve Harris). The band released their debut EP in 2014 and has during 2016 traveled around the world as a part of Iron Maiden's "The Book of Souls World Tour". The band's debut album "Darkness Will Rise" is scheduled for a release in December 2016. 

PAIN (Swe) 
Swedish industrial metal band Pain, fronted by Peter Tägtgren, are no newcomers in the House of Metal context. But with next year's festival it's been 10 years since the band visited the festival's first edition, so it's about time to once again welcome the band to the festival. Pain are currently outon the roads with their new album "Coming Home" that continues to deliver bombastic industrial metal in the same vein as the band's previous works. 

WOLF (Swe) 
Swedish band Wolf has since their self-titled debut album delivered classic heavy metal-tunes. Their latest album "Devil Seed" is no exception, but rather continues to deliver uncompromising heavy metal that should appeal to both older and younger fans of the genre.
