GMM 2007 BEST LINE-UP EVER!

9 NEW NAMES: Heaven And Hell, Type O Negative, Slayer, Within Temptation, Celtic Frost, Thin Lizzy, Lamb Of God, Unearth and Chimaira.


Once again, the Boeretang festival grounds will be the setting for a three-day marathon where the heroes of metal and rock will do. Dessel has built a solid reputation in the metal and rock world and deservedly so! Following the confirmation of headliners Iron Maiden, Aerosmith And Ozzy Osbourne, we are proud to add yet another series of "High-Quality Bands" to this year's line-up: Heaven And Hell, Type O Negative, Slayer, Within Temptation, Celtic Frost, Thin Lizzy, Lamb Of God, Unearth and Chimaira.

We think it's fair to say this is without doubt the best Graspop line-up ever: a varied and open programme with nothing but top acts from the worlds of metal and rock!

Within Temptation have been confirmed for Friday. Apart from musical talent, radio and TV publicity are also key to building a successful career, something Within Temptation experienced first-hand when, at the turn of the millennium, "Ice Queen" was catapulted to the top of the charts worldwide thanks to Radio 3FM. The gothic band soon became a crowd favourite, seducing metal and mainstream fans alike with singles such as "Mother Earth", "Running up that Hill", "Stand My Ground" and their most recent effort "What Have You Done" from their forthcoming album 'The Heart of Everything'. Will you be able to resist the temptation?

Celtic Frost and Thin Lizzy will also take the stage on Friday!

With Heaven and Hell, Graspop will unleash another big name on the GMM stage on Saturday. Named after the first Black Sabbath album with Ronnie James Dio on vocals, the band will be playing in the original line-up that recorded the second Dio/Sabbath album 'Mob Rules' and came back for more in 1992 with 'Dehumanizer'. So this means Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass) and Vinnie Appice (drums) on the same stage performing such metal classics as "Neon Knights", "Heaven And Hell" and "The Mob Rules". Ozzy and Heaven And Hell complete the Black Sabbath circle at GMM 2007!

Also on Saturday: Lamb Of God

A visit to Graspop Metal Meeting is always a bit about survival, especially when Californian thrash legends SLAYER come to call. In the early 80's, guitarist Kerry King and his partners in crime were one of the driving forces behind the Bay Area Thrash music scene. Their third album 'Reign in Blood' (1986) wrote metal history. Today, Slayer are touring the world to promote their extremely brutal new album 'Christ Illusion'. Last year, Slayer turned the Brabant Hal in Louvain into a live battlefield when they headlined the Unholy Alliance tour.

Also on Sunday: Unearth and Chimaira

These 9 new names bring the number of confirmed acts to 40 but we're not done yet!! Another thirty names will be added to this exceptional line-up for the twelfth edition of the Graspop metal meeting!

No, it's not like Wacken, it's bigger this year definitely. And you can add 25 other big names to the Graspop's line up too

And even Hellfest seems to be better than Wacken this year actually...
matthioso - 08.03.2007 at 20:04
