Kaine to play Hard Rock Hell Metal 2018


We are pleased to announce that Kaine will be playing Hard Rock Hell Metal at the o2 Academy in Birmingham next year. The event will be headlined by Alestorm & Grave Digger. You can get your tickets right now just for £19.90 by clicking the following link www.hrhmetal.com. Please see the announcement from Hard Rock Hell below.

HRH Draw Together Lodestones of Talent: a Magnetic Line-up for HRH Metal.

It’s loud, proud, with a passionate crowd, and made of pure, solid metal. Yes, it’s HRH Metal, promising to be the best yet, to be held up at O2 Academy, Birmingham between 17th & 18th February 2018.

This legendary event, from Europe’s leading residential festival provider, brings together more metal than the Mines of Moria and forges in Asgard combined, and boasts a truly talent-packed line-up.

“Metal has always been part of our lives here at HRH,” says HRH boss Jonni Davis, enthusiastically, “and we listen to our community to make sure we choose the acts the fans want to hear. This year’s HRH Metal line-up is proof of that.”

Alestorm need no introduction as the Seven Seas’ leading purveyors of Pirate Metal. They’ll be bringing their vibrant piratical sound to HRH Metal: ideal for reeling, carousing, chanting and raiding any galleons that happen to be passing.
German heavy metal Grave Digger are famed for their up-tempo, ballsy tunes with heavy power riffs. “It’s some of the purest metal you’re apt to find these days, and that’s a good thing,” said Angry Metal Guy, and we concur.

Other great bands announced include: Evil Scarecrow, Memoriam, Elvenking, Power Quest, Haerken, Fury, Attica Rage, Desert Storm, Ballsdeep, Monument, Kaine, Cypher 16, Collibus, Fire Red Empress, Gravil, Warcrab, Footprints in the Custard, Dakesis, Lifer, Torous, Sister Shotgun, Skarthia, Elimination, Nightmare World, Trivax, Ironrat, The Mighty Wraith, Vice, Incinery, Metaprism, The Face of Ruin, Sodomized Cadaver, XIII, Masters Call, Wrath of the Gods, Ashen Crown, and Devils Playground.

That’s a whole lot of metal, and heavy enough to generate its own gravity!

As it’s an HRH event, HRH Metal will be a close-knit community experience, where fans with real passion for the genre meet up, rock out to some incredible bands and sets, and of course enjoy revels and shenanigans with old friends and new. Great acts, chosen by the fans, with quality accommodation – The HRH way.

So sign up for HRH Metal, and remember, HRH events sell out very quickly, so book soon to avoid disappointment, either online at www.hrhmetal.com or ring Bex on 0207 193 9564.

N.B. For 6 days only, you’ll pay 19.90 for full weekend pass with no booking fee
