DEVIN TOWNSEND, THE HU, AMORPHIS, WITCHCRAFT, ORANSSI PAZUZU, ALIEN WEAPONRY, TRUCHŁO STRZYGI, MOTANKA and BAEST join the lineup of Krakow’s Mystic Festival, representing a full range of musical extremes.
One of the most eccentric figures on the metal scene today, DEVIN TOWNSEND, with his no-holds-barred live show, followed the fascinatingly exotic metal sounds of the far steppes of Mongolia, brought to you by THE HU, and the bards of melancholy from Land of a Thousand Lakes, AMORPHIS. The program of the upcoming Mystic Festival features metal in all its myriad forms, with each act bearing a stamp of quality and presenting its own original artistic vision.
It should come as no surprise that we’ll be joined by the band ORANSSI PAZUZU and their trippy, psychedelic brand of black metal, borne of the Finnish forest and yet distinctly from outer space. Get ready to be hypnotized by WITCHCRAFT’S dark ritual, while ALIEN WEAPONRY takes us to the southern hemisphere to fuse thrash metal with the Maori Haka. TRUCHŁO STRZYGI will remind you why metal long struck fear in the hearts of your parents, neighbors and anyone who sought beauty in music. MOTANKA will charm you with their original blend of modern metal and Ukrainian folk music, perhaps soothing the pain of being drawn and quartered by BAEST. It’s death metal: no one said it would be painless!
The 2020 Mystic Festival will take place June 10th and 11th at the Polish Aviation Museum and will feature an open-air format for the first time ever. More announcements to come!
