09:43 - psykometal That should give you a better idea idea of why said festivals are so epicly expensive. Not to mention the fact that they only happen once a year, for 3 days. They have to make sure they get enough revenue to be able to do it next
09:42 - psykometal I recently learned, through unnamed means, that the really big name bands, like Metallica and such, ask 1 million+ euors to do festival gigs like Wacken and the sort.
09:24 - Spirit Molecule Festivals like Hellfest and Wacken will cost a lot more as the bands they get to headline are quite big. Bigger the band more the cost to bring them in, plus with bigger bands production costs usually go up
07:15 - Monolithic You really should check out pop concerts here in Dubai. :D
04:58 - Redn1ght So... Why do the Rock/Metal festivals cost so much btw? They need to milk money? :p
Artillery will enter the recording studio on the 29th of November to record a follow up to their very successful album When Death Comes (2009). New material will be recorded again at Medley Studios in Denmark with Søren Andersen as producer.
Guitarist Michael Stützer says: "Artillery is very excited to start working on the follow up to When Death Comes, which received such a great response from both fans and media. It´s great to go back to the studio only 1 1/2 year after our last effort, to show the fans that Artillery is working very hard to make new recordings and to tour again. And this time it won't take us 10 years to make a new album! We feel that the new songs will continue the style and production of our last efforts and we are looking forward to play new songs live for the best and most dedicated fans of metal."
The forthcoming yet untitled album will be released by Metal Mind Productions in mid 2011.
