Metal On The Hill is on fire for its next round! This year the most popular open-air venue in Graz, the Schlossberg Stage Kasematten, will burn for metal once again. Napalm Records and Napalm Events are happy to announce the final line-up of this year’s edition, which will be headlined by #1 charting band Feuerschwanz and metal icons Stratovarius! With melodic death metal force Hiraes, local heroes Watch Them Fail and Ukrainian melodic modern metal up and comers Ignea – who the festival is extremely happy to host after they were finally able to leave their country and the ongoing war – the line-up is finally complete.
Metal On The Hill has become a permanent institution on the international festival map with its exclusive and boutique character, high calibre acts and the most beautiful festival location in Austria, which are unmistakably connected with the uniqueness of Styria! The festival will once again take place on the most beautiful stage in Austria: The historical Kasematten. Daily schedules have been announced and are available to view now.

Evanescence will be returning to the UK and Europe during November and December on their rescheduled co-headline ‘Worlds Collide’ tour with Within Temptation. Before that, they will be playing some of their own headline shows in June and have just confirmed extra dates in Madrid and Lisbon plus Rock In The City festival in Helsinki.
The band has also just announced a Stateside tour with Korn produced by Live Nation. Accompanied by special guests varying across select dates, the 18-city tour kicks off on August 16th at Ball Arena in Denver, CO making stops across the U.S. in Boston, Chicago, Houston, and more before wrapping up in Ridgefield, WA on September 16th.
“We’re looking forward to going on tour this summer and bringing our friends, Evanescence, out,” said Jonathan Davis of Korn. “Whenever Amy comes to one of our shows, I always love seeing her on the side of the stage watching the whole set and rocking out. We’re gonna have a great time on this tour, and we can’t wait to see you there.”
“I fell hard into Korn’s music in high school. It was an inspiration during the formation of my own band. The chances we’ve had to play together over the years are special, a part of our history. They remain one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen,” said Amy Lee of Evanescence. “It’s an honour and a thrill to go out with our friends again, our first full tour together since ‘07. We’re all really looking forward to this.”

Within Temptation and Evanescence are happy to announce that the anticipated co-headline ‘Worlds Collide’ European tour will still happen this year. The European arena tour that was originally due to kick off in March 2022, will now move to November and December 2022. All existing tickets & VIP packages will remain valid for the rescheduled dates and all venues remain the same.
Both bands stated earlier:-
“As the world is slowly reopening again, we have been feeling optimistic about the tour actually taking place in March and April. However - a lot of countries still have restrictions in place, and we are forced to make a decision right now for logistical reasons. We are aware that many fans are preparing to make their plans to attend the shows, some of which involve travel, and given the uncertainty as to exactly when certain countries will lift their restrictions, we are left with no choice but to reschedule the tour, hopefully for the final time.”
All existing tickets & VIP packages will remain valid for the rescheduled dates and all venues remain the same. For more information, please visit www.worldscollidetour.net
