Halftime! The first half of the calendar is done and tomorrow the next advent sunday is waiting. But lets proceed with todays amazing line-up additions!

The second wave of death metal gave birth to a lot of groundbreaking bands. One of them are Benediction which were founded on 1989. They were one of the first bands signed by Nuclear Blast and are still part of the NB family. Regarding Wacken it will be their second appearance. Their first Wacken show was in 1998.

More about Benediction.

Female fronted thrash metal? Well that's not very common but the few examples on the market show that these bands really kick ass! Bliksem from Belgium were founded in 2007 and have already released one EP and two albums. This will be their first show ever at Wacken!
