2010 Hard Rock & Metal Festival @ the Civic Theater Roodepoort
|For South Africa this is a first ever The WorldCup has come, and Hard Rock and Metal has been brought to the Civic Theatre.|
All of Eternity in conjunction with Marshall Music, Joburg Promusica, Everlast Tattoo, RockingSA and Safi Soundz is putting together a festival for all people in South-Africa that love Hard Rock and Metal. Hard Rock and Metal Has come a long way from the mid 60’s and has given birth to some of the most existing bands like Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, Kreator, Sodom, and Destruction to name a few. It has also evolved into sub genres from Traditional metal, Trash metal, Death metal, Black metal, Power metal, Doom and gothic metal, Alternative metal, Nu metal to the recent trend Metalcore. Hard Rock and Metal has grown to such an phenomenal that over the continent people are throwing there fists and party spirits in the air at every festival these bands play at and in continental Europe, especially Germany and Scandinavia, metal continues to be broadly popular.
Well-established British acts such as Judas Priest and Iron Maiden continue to have chart success on the continent, as do a range of local groups. In Germany, Western Europe's largest music market, several continental metal bands placed multiple albums in the top 20 of the charts between 2003 and 2009, including the long-running German thrash metal band Kreator, German industrial metal group Rammstein, Finnish melodic death metal act Children of Bodom, Norwegian symphonic extreme metal group Dimmu Borgir, and three power metal bands: Germany's Blind Guardian, England's DragonForce and Sweden's HammerFall. The Swedish melodic death metal act In Flames took both Come Clarity (2006) and A Sense of Purpose (2008) to number 6 in Germany; each album topped the Swedish charts - Wicapedia.
Heavy metal has been controversial nearly throughout its existence -- critics traditionally dismissed the music as riddled with over-the-top adolescent theatrics, and conservative groups have often protested what they perceive as evil lyrical content. Still, despite -- or perhaps because of -- those difficulties, heavy metal has become one of the most consistently popular forms of rock music ever created, able to adapt to the times yet keep its core appeal intact -www.allmusic.com.
Metal Music is so popular that the band Metal Hammer wants to make it a religion.
