Black Metal Icons, BEHEMOTH, Confirmed For VAGOS METAL FEST 2020!

Joining the Line-Up with TESTAMENT, HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY, ASPHYX + TROLLFEST, with many more names to be announced soon!

Portugal’s VAGOS METAL FEST has announced one of their headlining acts for a blasphemous summer of 2020, and confirmed Black Metal legends BEHEMOTH! Over the course of the last 28 years, BEHEMOTH have pushed the boundaries of death and black metal and heresy alike. While anti-Christian sentiment might seem like stale bread where most metal bands are concerned, for BEHEMOTH such ideas represent a very real threat to their physical freedom: Time and again, the government of their native Poland has charged them with various “crimes”. Mastermind Nergal and his bandmates — Orion, Inferno and Seth — have channelled all their anger and creative spirit into the passion of a distinctive sound, which influenced entire generations from all over the globe since decades. VAGOS METAL FEST is beyond proud to welcome the iconic band to their eclectic line-up in 2020, that already consists of high class names such as TESTAMENTHARAKIRI FOR THE SKYASPHYX and TROLLFEST, with many more to be announced in the time ahead!

The 5th edition of VAGOS METAL FEST will be taking place between July 30th – August 1st 2020 in Vagos close to Porto, weekend passes are now available at THIS LOCATION! Start your holiday plans and join an ultimate, unforgettable metal trip under the sun of Portugal!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
