One of my favorite things about festivals is discovering bands I would have never happened upon otherwise. Also, one can see bands that have never made it out of their home country–bands that can never be seen in the USA. Such was the case in 2018 with Alien Force at Metal Magic. Even though Alien Force’s albums came out in my heyday (1985 and 1986) they never hit my radar (unlike other Danish bands from that era like Mercyful Fate and Artillery).

I really got into them in the months leading up to the festival, and their live show did not disappoint.

And since I didn’t do one of these in 2017, a couple of favorites from late in 2017:

Pagan Altar, The Room of Shadows

Satyricon, Deep Calleth Upon Deep

For 2019 I’m really looking forward to new Tool and Rammstein (and seeing both bands too).

Tickets are now on sale for next year’s Metal Magic Festival (part XII). Get yours now here before they sell out. Only 666 will be sold. 😉

If you’re coming in from out of the country, and don’t want to camp, stay at the Best Western Plus Fredericia Hotel. I stayed there in 2018, and it was great–inexpensive, quiet, a very short walk to and from the festival, and a great breakfast buffet is included. You don’t have to pay until you check out. Mention “Metal Magic” when booking for a discount.
