Damage: 5,-We are happy to let you know that we contracted RAM to play Heavy Metal Maniacs 2013!
Playing since 1999, RAM wasn’t a part of the ’80’s but that didn’t stop Harry Granroth to start a band and play Heavy the way he liked it. In a time when Black and Grunge ruled, RAM stood up and by 2004 where recognized by Germany Hard Rock Magazine as one of the best new bands around.
This RAM show will be an exclusive show and the only one to be played in the Netherlands this year.We are proud to announce the first 3 bands to play our festival this year!
Holocaust hails from Scotland and was formed in 1977 by John Mortimer. Covered by no other then Metallica, Gamma Ray and Six Feet Under, proving this bands influence on the scene. Nowadays Holocaust is playing as a three man formation, with Mortimer singing and playing guitar, but you can bet “Heavy Metal Mania” will be on the set list!
Dealer hails from the early 1980’s, being part of the NWOBHM movement. After opening shows with Gary Moore and Motörhead, the band recorded several albums but split up around 1988. A reunion and release of the original albums in 2000 put the band back in the spotlight. Never before invited to Holland, these guys have 30 years to make up for.
Founded in Spain, somewhere in 2002, Wild was first known as Majesty Night, recording in their bedrooms. After changing their name to Wild they recorded an EP in 2009 by the name of “Calles de Fuego”. The band played numerous live gigs in Spain and Europe and has now returned to the Netherlands to play once again. Heavy, fast, Wild!
