The 8 bands that will play at the festival

THE RODS(USA)
The wait is over! Today we can finally announce the Rods as headliner of this year’s Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival!

Rocking since 1980, the Rods need no introduction. With David “Rock” Feinstein on guitar and vocals (yes, he’s Dio’s cousin, and yes, they played together in a band called Elf, that was to be Rainbow later…). Gary Bordonado on bass and Carl Canedy on drums (who produced albums with Exciter, Anthrax and Overkill) the line-up has never changed. Neither did their approach to the music or the enthusiasm of these veterans on stage.

Do not miss this chance to witness the power of good old dirty Heavy Metal as this is the only show the Rods play in Holland.

We will eat Metal!


MORE (UK)
Dating back to the early 1980′s More was founded by ex-Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Mario Day. Releasing 2 albums, a few singles and playing the 1981 Donington Park “Monsters of Rock” festival, the band was off on a good start. Sadly, after some line-up changes the band collapsed somewhere in 1982 only to resurface in 1985 for a short lived moment as they did in 1998. No one expected to hear from them again and the fans were left with only 2 killer albums to relive the old days.

In 2011, a tribute band called Exmore played the Headbangers Open Air with ex-members of the original band and special guest Chris Tsangarides, widely know for his production work on albums like “Sad Wings” and “Painkiller” for Judas Priest and various albums of bands like Anvil, Helloween, Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy, Bitches Sin, Depeche Mode and others.

After some shows under the Exmore moniker the band changed it’s name to More2012 and plays only on selected events. This Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival edition will be one of these events.

HOLOCAUST(UK)
Holocaust has been known as one of the legendary NWOBHM bands. With the all time favourite anthem of Heavy Metal “Heavy Metal Mania”, claiming that Rock ‘n Roll just wasn’t up to speed enough to satisfy them any more. Formed way back in 1977 as a Heavy Metal band, they survived the dreaded ’90′s and changed their sound to a more progressive style.

DEALER(UK)
Dealer also hails from the Golden Age of Heavy Metal, being part of the same NWOBHM movement. Never before invited to Holland, these guys have 30 years to make up for.

BLACK KNIGHT (NLD)
No Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival should be without a Dutch band. So this year we bring you Black Knight!

Black Knight started years ago in 1982 but was on hiatus for some time. Reunited only a few months ago, Black Knight has returned with Rudo Plooy, Pieter Bas Borger, GertJan Vis, Ron Heikens and Jelle Boersma.

Expect Heavy Metal, the way it is meant to be!

RAM(SWE)
Playing since 1999, RAM wasn’t a part of the ’80′s but that didn’t stop Harry Granroth to start a band and play Heavy the way he liked it. In a time when Black and Grunge ruled, RAM stood up and by 2004 where recognized by Germany Hard Rock Magazine as one of the best new bands around.
This RAM show will be an exclusive show, just for you Maniacs!

WILD(ESP)
Wild is not from England. Born in Spain, somewhere in 2002, these guys were first known as Majesty Night. After changing their name to Wild they recorded a full length album in 2011 by the name of “La Nueva Orden”. Heavy, fast, Wild!

Evil Invaders(BE)
From Belgium we bring you Evil Invaders this year! Heavy Speed Metal, high pitched vocals, Thrashy riffs with melodic leads, these four young guys have it all. Just one, 25 minutes EP in their back pocket, but still this band has gained a formidable reputation in the underground scene. Playing at Wacken this year, and also at the Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival 2013.


Hope to see you there!
