Only one day is left until we meet again in the cave of Balve for two magical days of dark mysticism, melancholy and heavy riffs.
This german festival strives to bring something new to the table, boasting on uniqueness and originality. And they’ve certainly lived up to that expectation. Their devotion to originality can be seen not only through the completely unique setting, a neolitic cave, but also through this years’ lineup.
The bands that will perform between September 29 and October 1st are the most diverse yet, from shock rock pioneer Arthur Brown to black metal newcommers Imha Tarikat, from the neoclassical ensemple Camerata Mediolanense to the recently formed monastic doom of Arð and so on.
But apart from unique musical identities, this year there are going to be a slew of premieres, special shows, anniversary shows, you name it: a thousand different reasons why Prophecy Fest will be a unique moment in time, an event which will be imposible to repeat.
