Swedish melodic metal group SOILWORK and Polish Death/Thrash Metal band VADER are confirmed to play at the Bangalore Open Air Festival in its 2016 edition. The news about the bands being confirmed to play at Bangalore Open Air 2016 first surfaced the internet by a post made by Headbangers India.
When Metalbase India had spoken to Soilwork in 2013, the band quoted “We would not be surprised if we hit India or Asia this year.”. Although, it has taken 3 years since then! We’re delighted to have them here.
We spoke to Soilwork earlier on their release of ‘The Living Infinite’ – the band’s 9th studio album – make sure you check the interview by clicking here – http://metalbase.in/2014/03/23/interview-soilwork/
Vader was formed around 1983 when the heavy metal movement started to decay, succeeded by more extreme sounds like thrash – though they started off as just a heavy/speed metal act. They started achieving popularity in the Polish metal scene after the first Metalmania edition show in 1986. After numerous line-up and music direction changes, by 1987 they eventually embraced a pure death metal sound with reminiscence of thrash – marking the beginning of an era of splendor for underground metal in their home country.
Soilwork is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Helsingborg. They are signed to Nuclear Blast. Formed in late 1995 by Björn Strid and Peter Wichers, originally under the name Inferior Breed, the band changed their name in late 1996 to Soilwork.
