Painkiller Records and AblaZine.com are forced to delay the first edition of the PAINKILLER METAL FEST. According to an official press statement this was necessary because of the fact that the Phoenix Club (where the festival was supposed to take place) has no backstage area, no showers, no security, no staff, no available rooms for the bands and / or catering. The sound volume furthermore is said to be limited in the evening, so that the headlining acts would have to play less loud than the support bands and the light power-engine has burnt two days ago. But: the Festival is NOT cancelled, it is DELAYED (probably to October), all the bands / people involved in the organisation will get compensation on demand and will be present on the new date. All the fans who have booked pre-sale tickets and / or passes will get free ones for the new festival.
Dutch Death / Thrashers KATAFALK are confirmed to play on the Wâldrock festival (NL), headlined by Iron Maiden. Other festivals KATAFALK will play are With A Dragon’s Blaze (BEL), Obscene Extreme (CZECH), Stonehenge (NL), Party.San Open Air (GER) and the now postponed Painkiller Metal Festival (BEL). In September KATAFALK will embark on a mini-tour with Dew-Secented (GER) and Outburst (NL). www.katafalk.com
