(CANCELLED) MetalDays – 26 july-1 august 2020 – Tolmin, SLO
Dear MetalDays visitors,
Slovenian government decided that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, mass gatherings and live events ban in Slovenia from 12.03.2020 will be extended until further notice.
Based on Slovenia’s government decision as well as the statement that we received from the National Institute for Public health (NIJZ) we are left with no choice but to cancel MetalDays 2020.
MetalDays team has been working intensively on the 2020 edition and all of us are bitterly disappointed for not being able to enjoy MetalDays 2020 together with you. This cancelation affects us heavily (mentally and financially) and we will need some time to recover and reorganize. This is a real blow for our company, all the artists in the music industry, the whole Posočje region as well as for our subcontractors, volunteers and complete festival crew and their families.
Nevertheless, we support the decision of the Slovenian government in this difficult situation. Your health and safety are our top priorities, and our responsibility as promoters is a reason more to follow the instructions and guidelines.
MetalDays 2021 and options for your already purchased tickets.
We will let you know about postponed dates for MetalDays 2020 as soon as we have made our decision, which will be based on discussions with all the agents/management/
We are asking for a little bit of patience whilst we work through this.
We thank you for your trust during these difficult times.
Dragi obiskovalci festivala MetalDays,
Vlada Republike Slovenije je odločila, da bo zaradi epidemije, ki je bila razglašena v Sloveniji 12.3.2020, prepoved množičnih javnih dogodkov in koncertov podaljšana do nadaljnjega.
Glede na odločitev Vlade in prejeto izjavo Nacionalnega Inštituta za javno zdravje (NIJZ), nam ni preostalo drugega, kot letošnjo prireditev MetalDays 2020 odpovedati.
V organizacijo letošnje edicije festivala MetalDays je bilo vloženega ogromno dela s strani organizacijske ekipe festivala in razumljivo je, da smo zaradi te odločitve globoko razočarani. Odpoved nas je vse prizadela tako finančno kot psihično in potrebovali bomo kar nekaj časa, da vse skupaj predelamo in se zopet postavimo na noge. Ta odločitev pomeni tudi izjemen udarec vsem vpletenim v organizacijo tako obsežnega dogodka; vsem nastopajočim, poslovnim partnerjem, prostovoljcem, celotni dolini Soče in lokalnemu prebivalstvu, še posebej pa organizacijski ekipi in njihovim družinam.
Razmere, povezane s pojavom in širitvijo koronavirusa, zahtevajo odgovorno ravnanje, zato bi želeli poudariti, da odločitev slovenske Vlade in pristojnih institucij spoštujemo in jemljemo zelo resno ter sledimo njihovim navodilom in smernicam. Čeprav nastalo situacijo obžalujemo, je varnost in zdravje vseh naših obiskovalcev in sodelujočih na festivalu naša največja prioriteta.
MetalDays 2021 in možnosti za že kupljene vstopnice.
O datumih za prestavljeno edicijo MetalDays 2020 vas bomo obvestili takoj, ko bomo sprejeli nadaljne odločitve. Le te bodo temeljile na dogovorih z agenti, managementi, nastopajočimi glasbenimi skupinami in povezanimi festivali; takoj, ko bo to mogoče, vam bomo sporočili več informacij, datume in seznam nastopajočih.
Prosimo vas za vaše potrpljenje in se vam hkrati zahvaljujemo za vašo podporo in zaupanje v teh težkih časih.

See you all at the MetalDays 2020!
As I Lay Dying to headline MetalDays 2020! Yes, you’ve read that well! As I Lay Dying is back and they are coming to Tolmin to fire up the atmosphere to the max. Definitely one of the names we have been waiting for quite a while.
Clutch: what is a metal festival without a proper Stoner Rock band?! Well … that’s why we are bringing Clutch, a top-notch name in the business.
Jinjer: a band that made a big name for themselves in the past few years. Heavy, progressive, brutal, beautiful – we welcome them again to MetalDays!
Orbit Culture: rooted in Swedish school of death metal, but not being afraid to go beyond it and to explore new horizons – sounds promising!
Rome (Jerome Reuter): genuinely unique, both in the musical and lyrical sense. Not a band that will make you wanna jump around, but it will definitely leave a strong impression on you.
Voices: a band that describes their music as “a whirlwind of psychedelic melancholia and psychotic blast” and consists mainly of Akercocke members is definitely a band worth your attention!
Rotting Christ: Many believe that their show at MetalDays 2019 was one of the best shows MetalDays ever witnessed.
It was so impressive that we were sorry for booking them only as co-headliners.
We needed to fix that somehow, so the next logical step was to book them as headliners for 2020. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you … Rotting Christ…
Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals performing a Vulgar Display of Pantera:
Phil is keeping his promise after the cancellation in 2019 and
will melt your faces with a set of legendary songs by one of the greatest metal bands of all time, Pantera! We can’t wait to hear „Walk“,
„Mouth for War“, „I’m broken“ and other timeless classics blasting away from our stage!
Despised Icon: Often called the pioneers of deathcore, Canadian beasts “Despised Icon” are back on the scene with their new album coming out this November.
We are stoked to host them on MetalDays for the first time ever and we are sure their show is not going to leave anyone indifferent!
Wormrot: Coming all the way from Singapore, Wormrot is a well known name to anyone who loves a bit more extreme metal music.
These guys are taking very seriously what they are doing and they are considered to be one of the best grindcore bands out there. Don’t miss your chance to see them live!
Wolves In The Throne Room: This band is anything but an ordinary black metal band. By combining long ambient passages, melodic riffs, intense synths and heavy drum beats, this trio from Olympia, USA, wants to take the listener on a journey through the landscape of their homeland. Words won’t do any justice here, you simply need to experience their performance yourself!
At The Gates – pioneers of Gothenburg melodic death metal are coming back to Tolmin! In the mid-90s, they released an album called “Slaughter of the Souls” which is, without any doubt, one of the most influential albums of extreme metal music ever released! They are going to play it in its entirety on MetalDays 2020! Be there!
Benediction – It’s a great honour for us to sound the alert for another very special cult-act! An ultimate classical killer, none less than the UK death-worshipers – BENEDICTION! What a treat for old-school fanatics and what an invitation to party hard till the bitter end!
Cattle Decapitation – a top requested name by our visitors. The band enriches their progressive and partially catchy Death Metal with Grindcore elements to create a haunting, gloomy but always thrilling sound. This works as the basis for their socio-critical, misanthropic lyrics and gives a special substance to them. Warm up your necks and let your heads roll!
Dark Fortress – an eclectic and unique name on black metal scene. Over the years they have changed their sound from aggressive death/black to more complex and challenging dark/black metal and back to classical melodic black metal sound. Shortly, a must-see for black metal fans and enthusiasts of dark, progressive music!
Vulture Industries – Are you interested in thinking outside of the box and experiencing new, different music forms? Then this band is for you. Avant-garde, progressive, ludicrous and ready to blow away your mind. We are just as curious as you are – let’s check them out together at MetalDays!
Amon Amarth to headline MetalDays 2020! No current band embodies the spirit of metal’s immersive culture with more fervour and might than Amon Amarth: Sweden’s celebrated Viking overlords and undisputed modern masters of epic heavy metal! Throughout the years, they grew together with our festival and they became almost like our House band without which we cannot imagine a proper Holiday in Tolmin!
1914 – The Poetry of War! 1914 are a Ukrainian band formed in 2014, at the 100th anniversary of the First World War. They are neither political nor warmongers – like scholars or historians, 1914 tell the tales of war, injustice, tear, hopelessness and endless death around us… Their unique and powerful mix of black metal, sludge and old school death metal is one of a kind, and they are ready to shock us with their music and live performance.
Beyond Creation – Ten years ago they released their first demo, a year after that their debut full-length “The Aura”, which is still one of the highlights of the genre. Since then, Beyond Creation has been known as the progressive, innovative and exciting new metal sound of their homeland, Quebec. Join us in wishing them a warm welcome for their first appearance at MetalDays!
Warkings – a Roman tribune, a savage Nordic warrior, a determined Crusader and a lethal Spartan met in Valhalla. Secretly listening to their stories, the Allfather decided that all living human beings on Earth should know about these true stories of war and heroism… and so the Warkings were born. They are coming to Tolmin to forge some steel and play the heavy metal songs of their glorious battles!
Katla. – a pretty new name on the scene, Katla. was formed by Einar Thorberg Guðmundsson and Guðmundur Óli Pálmason in late 2015 when the latter needed a new outlet for his musical creations. They took the well known Icelandic post metal/rock sound, added their own touch to it – and it sounds great! Katla is also one of Iceland’s biggest volcanos. The volcano has not erupted violently since 1918. Hm…
Cradle of Filth have assumed the role of dark metal diarists, exploring the amorphous horrors that lurk in humanity’s shadows and revelling in the opulence of mortal sin across centuries powered by bleak romance and a lust for the sensually grotesque… After more than 10 years, we welcome them back in Tolmin!
Endezzma – founded in 2006, they transfer old atmosphere combined with eerie seductive compositions into what people want to rate or should rate as 1st class sublime nekro requiems! An old serpent with fresh poison – beware!
Evoken – Austrian-American composer, Arnold Schoenberg, quoted “If it is art, it is not for all, and if it is for all, it is not art.” This quote has been held to represent a continuing development of Evoken, American funeral doom metal band.
Fleshcrawl – brutal, uncompromising death metallers Fleshcrawl marked their return last year with their new album “Into the Catacombs of Flesh”! Get ready for the finest death metal treat!
Shores Of Null – their music is a wistful yet powerful cascade of riffs, overwhelmingly heavy and soothing at the same time, trading off between gothic-doom vibes and blackened aggression, with epic melancholy-ridden vocal patterns.
Death Angel – More than three decades into their celebrated career, Death Angel remain as hungry as ever. Since we last saw them in Tolmin, they released a new album which satiates the appetite for buzzsaw speed riffs, double bass mayhem and scorching vocals… Oh and they are more than eager to play some of it for us this summer!
Cro-Mags – The history of the Cro-Mags is integral to the history of Hardcore, it’s evolution from punk and the development of alternative music genres such as hardcore, cross-over, thrash metal, post punk and grunge to name a few. Don’t miss your chance to see one of the most iconic hardcore bands out there!
Darkest Hour – A bastard child born of the mid 90s punk/metal/hardcore movement, Washington, DC’s Darkest Hour combine the passion, energy, and soul of punk/hardcore with the style, speed, vengeance and fury of melodic speed/thrash/death metal.
Baest – Baest is a death metal band with awesome live act well known for its windmill headbanging skills and charismatic stage presence and an original sound that liberates the band from the endless fields of modern death metal. A vicious and violent monster that will grow into a global beast.
Hellripper – Hellripper is a one-man black/speed metal band based in Aberdeen, Scotland very much in the vein of old-school bands such as Venom, Kreator, Sabbat [JPN], Metallica etc. Formed at the end of 2014 and with the release of the debut EP ‘The Manifestation of Evil’ in 2015, the band have made their statement clear… Total fucking mayhem!
