Festival Short News

Fortarock won’t return in 2020

FortaRock – a Dutch metal festival where Rammstein, Iron Maiden, Nightwish and so many more bands have appeared in recent years – has confirmed that it will not return in 2020.

In a post to Facebook, the organization announced that a 2020 edition was not on the cards. However, the overall wording of the announcement has alluded to the festival not returning at all.


Maerzfeld dropped their single “Zorn”

German NDH act Maerzfeld have dropped “Zorn” (in English, “Wrath“), the lead track of their upcoming album of the same name.

Formed in 2004, the band consists of vocalist Heli Reißenweber, Mike Sitzmann and Matthias Sitzmann on guitars, Korbinian Stocker driving the low end with his bass, and Michael Frischbier holding down the beat.

The band’s sound is very reminiscent of Rammstein, so it’s likely no surprise that their side project is a Rammstein tribute band!

Zorn drops on October 4th, and can be pre-ordered on their official website.
