Our next confirmation is a very special one. Especially if you're a hateful self mutilating misanthrope. Psychonaut 4 play suicidal depressive black metal and their inspirations come from sex, drugs, alcohol and suicide. They will also present a special bloody performance during their show that will haunt your nightmares for eternity. Damn, we're not even sure if it's legal. For adult audience only.

Illuminated is a new name on the Georgian metal scene, but the involved musicians are far from being novices. The band's sound can be described as doom metal with a heavy post metal feel and some black metal elements. Influenced by artists like Saturnus, Draconian, Anathema, etc. the band will most certainly appeal to fans of such music.

Throes of Dawn

Throes of Dawn are a Finnish band formed in 1994 by Henri "Kaamos" Koivula (Shape of Despair) and Jani Heinola. The other members of the band have also been parts of Finnish metal underground, having played in bands like ...And Oceans, Enochian Crescent, Rotten Sound, etc. Having started their musical journey by playing symphonic black metal Throes of Dawn progressed towards atmospheric dark/doom metal with their 4th album, "Quicksilver Clouds", and went into further depths of surreal psychedelic melancholia with their latest release, "The Great Fleet of Echoes". Prepare for an unforgettable performance by the dark metal masters!

Consisting of the ex members of Armenian extreme metal sensation Sworn and a short lived sympho black metal band Flegethon, Daeron assaulted the Armenian metal scene with a mission to play an intelligent and sincere extreme metal rooted in european academic traditions. Look forward to an explosive show consisting of the songs from the band's upcoming album and a surprise cover song.

Starting in 2009 this all female symphonic black metal band quickly rose to prominence as currently the most famous extreme metal band in Armenia. With already more than 10 concerts behind their backs and currently in writing mode, the band's road is only onward and upward, on a constant path of improvement, which will be once again proven during Highland Metalfest 2012.
