Dutch stoner/metal festival Into the Void announces new bands for the festival in October. The highly influential doom metal band Saint Vitus from the United States has been confirmed, as well as Polish heavy-doomfuzz-metal outfit BelzebonG and the American post metal band Inter Arma and many more. Into the Void will take place on October 20 – 21, 2017 in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands.
The highly influential American doom metal band Saint Vitus has been regarded as one of the first bands of the genre, starting out in the 1970s. After breaking up in 1996, Saint Vitus briefly reunited for a tour in 2003 and are back together since 2008. The band is working on new material, so it is likely that the fans can expect some new tunes at the stoner festival.
The music of the American metal band Inter Arma (Latin for “in times of war”) is hard to categorize. The band paints frightful and beautiful portraits of humanity by blending a variety of metal genres such as doom metal, psychedelic sludge, black metal and prog. The band has established itself as an innovative force in the extreme metal scene.
The weed-inspired, yet evil sounding music of the Polish heavy-doomfuzz-metal outfit BelzebonG will immerse the Into the Void visitors in a sea of distortion and fuzz. The festival will als feature ambient and sound art project acts, such as Ashtoreth (BE) and Leviathan Speaks (BE). These acts, representing a totally different genre from the stoner and dooms bands, demonstrate that Into the Void is the perfect event for music fans to discover new groups and genres.
