Few line-up details published 4 years, 6 months ago
On the grounds of your comments we have decided to rearrange playing times of few bands to not overlap with those silmilar in genre. We believe these changes will make your stay at BA more pleasant. Thank you, guys, for your factual remarks.
Namely it goes for ambiguity of double occurence of Novembers Doom on our list. You have to know that these doom pioneers will really play twice, on Thurs at Metalshop stage and then there will be their accoustic performance on Fri at Obscure stage. We have been also forced, due to a partial line-up share in In Vain and Solefald, to switch Solefald and Aborym, whose live set has been modified. US death metal commando Skeletal Remains has been finally put on the list on Thurs at Obscure stage. The programme should be actual right now.
