DIAMOND HEAD confirmed

Another band has joined the BANG YOUR HEAD!!! band line up 2017: British legend is confirmed to come to Balingen next summer!

LEE AARON, STEVE GRIMMETT'S GRIM REAPER and TOXIK confirmed

Three more acts of our BANG YOUR HEAD !!! band line up are confirmed!

One of the few real female hard rock icons will come to Balingen: LEE AARON, who has rediscovered her passion for guitar driven music with 'Fire And Gasoline' lately, has joined the billing.

So have STEVE GRIMMETT'S GRIM REAPER, today's incarnation of NWoBHM legend GRIM REAPER and American progressive thrashers TOXIK, who are about to release the follow up of the two genre classics 'World Circus' and 'Think This' in 2017.

RIOT V, AXXIS und TRIBULATION bestätigt

Three more acts are confirmed for BANG YOUR HEAD!!! 2017!

US metal fans will be thrilled to hear that RIOT V will come to Balingen, keeping the legacy of Mark Reale and RIOT alive and presenting old and new classics.

The same goes for AXXIS, who will finish both Saturday's programme and the festival edition 2017 with an indoor party at the fairground hall.

Presumably slightly less lighthearted, TRIBULATION will present their distinctive and very own version of death metal with a gothic touch and sophisticated, epic song structures creating a very intense atmosphere.

ENTOMBED A.D., RAVEN and DEAD LORD confirmed

Three more highlights have been added to the BANG YOUR HEAD!!! band line up 2017!

First, there are ENTOMBED A.D., the actual incarnation of ENTOMBED, still dedicated to the legendary Death'n'Roll sound and one of the most intense live acts around.

Their fellow countrymen DEAD LORD will appeal to any fan of classic hard rock in the vain of THIN LIZZY and are presumably, as everyone having witnessed the band on stage before, one of the brightest hope of the genre's future.

Finally, NWoBHM veterans RAVEN have joined the rank of artists coming to Balingen next summer. They sure don't need no intruduction: with their early classics, they participated in setting the way for what would later be called speed and thrash metal.

Three new confirmations

The next three acts for upcoming summer are confirmed: Swiss veteran rockers rockers KROKUS and the Swedish vikings of MÂNEGARM will join the festival line up, while BLOODBOUND add some melodic power metal to the warm up party on July 12.
