Preview: SWR Barroselas Metalfest 2019

Being around for more than two decades of existence, the SWR BARROSELAS METALFEST became more than an obligatory stopping point for all fans of heavy metal and its more extreme subgenres. This year’s edition, which runs from April 26 to 28, promises, as usual, to gather a legion of headbangers from all around the world in the quiet village of Barroselas, located in the Viana do Castelo district. With a huge offer in what concerns the heaviest sonorities – there are more than 50 bands distributed across the three stages – all the essential ingredients are gathered for one more edition of this amazing festival.

Between the return of several unforgettable acts like SAINT VITUS, GODFLESH, BENEDICTION, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER or VOMITORY and the several highly-awaited premieres in Portuguese territory, among them the MIDNIGHT, CRAFT, DEMILICH and DEAFKIDS, among others, the SWR BARROSELAS METALFEST continues to grow as an incubator to everything interesting happening in the sonic extremism scene. Thus, more than two decades after having seen the phenomenon born, the little town of Barroselas will host a true show of what is the best the underground can offer.

Also, in order to prove the eclectic vision of an event that bets on the diversity of trends within the most extreme sounds, one should visit the free entrance stage. It will remain open to all visitors and curious during the entire event, being home to the performances of twenty bands. It is precisely at SWR ARENA that, on the night of April 25th, the most resistant will be able to watch the final of WOA Metal Battle Portugal, the competition that will give the opportunity to a group of representing the Portuguese underground at the German Wacken Open Air festival. Therefore, the “battle” will be between the final warriors of this year’s contest: DIABOLICAL MENTAL STATE, GROG and RÖADSCÜM.
