After two years of forced hiatus,, Vertigo and Cerberus Booking are pleased to look to the future with optimism and announce the first bands for the Festival 2022! The event, scheduled for mid-September, this time will gather the hardest, most infernal and darkest metal around, for two days of extreme music set to take place at the Live Music Club in Trezzo Sull’Adda (Milan, Italy).

Day 1 – Saturday 17th September 2022
With pleasure we can finally reconfirm the mighty SODOM as headliners of the first day! For the first time, Tom Angelripper‘s band will present the songs of the devastating latest album “Genesis XIX” to the Italian fans. Thanks to this record the German act managed to enter the German top ten and secure great praise from fans and media.
In the role of co-headliner we will find another legendary band: CORONER! The Swiss band, currently working on their new album, returns to Italy after 6 years of absence for an exclusive show full of classics.
To complete this round of announcements for the “day one”, we are happy to introduce IN.SI.DIA, long running torchbearers of Italian thrash metal, and HYADES who will reunite specifically for this event.

Day 2 – Sunday 18 September 2022
We descend directly into the bowels of Hades with the headliner of this day. All hail WATAIN, who will bring to our stage their ferocious show, which as usual will be extreme in every aspect and with a unique atmosphere. Those who have seen them live cannot forget what the Swedish black metal band is capable of evoking…
To support them we will have ABBATH, the band led by the charismatic ex-frontman of IMMORTAL, which will release the new album “Dread Reaver“ at the end of March.
Before this double shot of black metal, we will welcome ASPHYX, absolute masters of doom-death metal, and TRIBULATION, another great band and winner of a Swedish Grammy that in recent years has been hailed as a new force in dark metal. Also please salute BØLZER, a Swiss duo with an absolutely personal take on the black-death metal sound.

We are currently working on the confirmation of other big international names and we plan to announce them within a few weeks. Stay tuned!

Once again, the Live Music Club, our historic venue in the outskirts of Milan, will welcome you with an outdoor lounge area, several refreshment points, a beergarden, a metalmarket and a special area where free meet & greet sessions will be held with all the available bands. Times and additional details will be revealed in due time.

Once again, please stay tuned for more details and news!
