Now that the year is moving forward with nearly reaching mid-February by now it's time for a lot of people to think which festival they would like to attend this year. Festivals are often a fine happening with a lot of people coming together from different countries but all for the same reason: they do love to listen to Heavy Metal music.
The bigger festivals named Wacken Open Air, Bang your Head or the With full force are well known but as for Wacken, it's already sold out. Additionally most of them aren't that cheap,too.
So here's a alternative: the Metal 4 Splash Festival, located at Rotenburg/Wümme in northern germany. Here are some details:
Name and place: Metal4Splash Festival in Rotenburg/Wümme, Germany.
Bands confirmed so far: Sodom, Drone, Mob Rules & Criminal. More bands to be confirmed.
Tickets have gone already on sale and are priced 27,50 Euro including parking, camping, entrance fee for the warm-up show and fee for the festival itself. The first 100 orders come with a free "Old-School”-T-Shirt from the Metal4Splash festival or a CD since it's the fifth anniversary of the festival this year.

As I did before in the past I'm introducing one of the confirmed bands now. This time the pick goes on Drone, a brutal newcomer metal band including most of the modern elements of Bands like Bullet for my Valentine mixed with traditional band sounds from band's like Testament, Mastodon, or Pantera. The songs go straight forward and sound like a perfect fit to make a good show at the Metal 4 Splash Festival. Just check the video below and you'll surely know what I mean.
