Wacken 2015

Savatage is back. I can't believe it's actually happening, but they're reuniting.

Quote:
While the 25th W:O:A is still running, we’re already working on the program for the next year. By now we can already announce 15 bands!

The presale for 2015 starts in the night from Sunday, 3rd of August to Monday, 4th of August at Midnight (German time) – exclusively at Metaltix.com! All important information regarding this topic will follow in another news here at Wacken.com.

TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA and SAVATAGE – only live shows in Europe in 2015!

Paul O´Neill and Jon Oliva are coming to W:O:A with their most important projects!

Trans-Siberian Orchestra will be performing live on stage at Wacken 2015, followed immediately by a Savatage reunion gig, that also marks their first live performance in over a decade.

Furthermore, these will be the only live appearances of both bands in Europe in 2015!

Running Wild
Time to sail under Jolly Roger again – Running Wild are back! Since their show in 2009, the band hasn’t played in Wacken anymore. But now it is time for Rock ´n´Rolf to return to the North!

In Flames
The melodic death metal juggernaut In Flames will return to Wacken in 2015! Next to their old hits, they will also bring their new album Siren Charms to the holy land – get ready for an explosive show!

In Extremo
Always highly welcome in Wacken and well known for their intensive performance – the Medieval themed In Extremo are going to hit the stage again!

U.D.O. – special Orchestra show
Udo Dirkschneider and his companions will travel with a huge luggage – the orchestra of the German armed forces will play with them in Wacken!

Sabaton
The Swedish whizkids Sabaton will again perform a spectacular show – and they have just released their new album Heroes!

Amorphis – Special “Tales From The Thousand Lakes” Show
Two years after they performed their acoustic set in Wacken, Amorphis will return with another special show. This time they will perform their legendary death metal masterpiece Tales From The Thousand Lakes!

Death Angel
After the thrash metal band was forced to cancel this year’s W:O:A performance, we could manage to get them for 2015 instead. Their last record, Dream Calls for Blood, was released last year and is the seventh studio album so far.

Powerwolf
The wolves return to Wacken – after the amazing show at W:O:A 2013, the band will again perform their unholy power metal Mass.

Ensiferum
The folk/viking metal band Ensiferum prepares the longships for the sailing to Wacken. They will play their fourth W:O:A show!

Kataklysm
Get ready for Northern Hyperblasts! The death metal band Kataklysm comes to Wacken for the third time. In the meantime, they released two new albums, so there is enough new material for a neck breaking show!

Cannibal Corpse
Death metal returns! Cannibal corpse will shake the holy land with their new album A Skeletal Domain. It will be the sixth W:O:A performance for the band, but the last one was already a few years ago.

Sepultura
The most important metal export of Brazil will rock Wacken for the third time. In their off time, they released the 13th studio album, called The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart.

Thyrfing
Back in 2003, the viking metal band Thyrfing played in Wacken – and now it they will finally return!
Absolutely unbelievable lineup. I can't go in 2015, but I'd give almost anything to be able to.

Does this mean a possible Savatage reunion tour? If so, I'm in.

It did say "only live show in Europe", seems to imply they'll play elsewhere

No word yet other than John Oliva. I'd imagine Chris Caffery, but the real question for me is whether Zak Stevens will be there.

Also decided I'll be going. Going to order my ticket when they become available tomorrow night.

If Zak Stevens ain't there, I'm not down. I'm in the camp that fucking hates Jon Oliva's voice but Zak man, he sounds so epic all the damn time.

I do think Zak is the better singer, and other than Hall of the Mountain King, I prefer Zak's albums. With that said, Oliva is the heart and soul of Savatage, and, along with Criss, always has been. Even on the albums he didn't sing on, he either wrote a lot of the material or was involved somehow.

No love for Savatage or Running Wild? While Running Wild certainly isn't special for Wacken, that's pretty much the only place they'll play these days.

Running Wild is pretty cool. So is Thyrfing.
