Into the Forest is a folk/paganmetal festival which is held in Dynamo Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
We felt it was about time someone organized a one-day festival to increase the diversity of folk-metal events held within the Netherlands besides the better known Heidenfest and Paganfest. Therefore we're proud to announce that the First Edition of Into the Forest will take place on the 6th of September, 2014.
Because this year is going to be the first edition, we have some very special surprises for you, so check back on this page regularly for more updates!
Below you can find a brief description of the confirmed bands. More bands will be announced soon.
Ticketprice will be €15,- excl. service costs and can be ordered through this link: http://www.dynamo-eindhoven.nl/agenda/evenement/into-the-forest-oa-adorned-brood-vogelfrey/
ADORNED BROOD - Special one-part acoustic show (GER)
Playing for 20 years already and founded in a time when pagan metal didn’t even exist; Adorned Brood. We are proud to present Adorned Brood as the headliner for Into the Forest. Especially for this festival, the band will play an acoustic set besides their regular set, ensuring that the festival will be closed by something very special! Make sure you don’t miss this unique show!
Do you want to party? Then make sure you don’t miss Vogelfrey! This pack of outlaws sure know how to create an atmosphere great for partying, moshing and headbanging. With their catchy tunes, heavy riffs and joyous melodies this band knows how to turn every festival into a great party. For those who saw them can only admit, the energetic show of these Germans is something you definitely need to see!
AKTARUM - Special EP ‘Game of Trolls' show (BE)
From the vast forests, caverns and caves of Southern Belgium emerges Aktarum.
On the 6th of September this gang of trolls will journey North to Eindhoven to release their typical ‘Troll metal’ onto the crowd. During this night, the band will play a special set with all the songs from their new EP 'Game of Trolls' as well as some other classics. No doubt that this is going to be one hell of a party!
ENCORION - Video shoot (NL)
Encorion proves that there are some really great folk metal bands within the Netherlands. With catchy, brutal songs where raging guitars and pounding drums are completed by violin and flutes, this is a band that every fan of folk metal would enjoy. It doesn’t matter if you want to dance, bang your head or jump into the pit, Encorion provides opportunities for all.
DRUANTIA – Final goodbye-show
After three years of existence, Druantia decided to stop. Their final show will be at Into the Forest, and it will be a good one! The band will give everything they got for one last time, ensuring that this last gig will be a great closure. If you’re ready for some catchy folk-metal, with pounding drums and guitars, melodic flute parts and one large Viking grunting about forlorn times, then make sure you don’t miss the last Druantia-show!
Thalanos originates somewhat closer to Eindhoven, where the festival will take place. Although the band originates from Veldhoven, Into the Forest will feel like coming home for the band. Harsh metal interchanged with dance-able melodies; that’s what Thalanos stands for. Regarding the lyrics, everything coulc be expected from this band; from the slayer of dragons to parties of epic proportion. Either way, Thalanos will make sure Into the Forest is going to be the ‘Party of the Year’!
