Crematory, Dezperadoz & Mandowar behind door no. 18

Also today we can announce a new band threesome which will reinforce the W:O:A 2013 line-up.


There is nothing much more to say about Crematory which isn´t already known to most metalheads. They are one of Germanie´s most famous gothic metal bands and are also known as one of the spearhead bands of the whole movement around the globe. 20 years of stage experience and almost as much CD & DVD outputs are proof of it.

After some years of abstinence Crematory will return in 2013 to spread their dark mood again!

Mandowar - It´s no coincidence that the name sounds a bit like the "loudest band in the world".

Three cowboys celebrate rock and metal classics by the use of mandolin, guitar and ukulele-bass whereby the mandolin has a very important act in their show.

The band describes their style as country-folk-metal and in 2013 they will play at Wacken for the first time.
