The Magic Circle Festival in Finland which will take place on Saturday July 26th 2014 at Suvilahti Open Air, Helsinki, Finland.
Celebrating Manowar's worldwide Metal community, the festival is hosted by different countries and has previously taken place in Germany and Slovenia, where it was attended by Metal fans from more than 35 nations. This will be the first Magic Circle Festival in Finland ever.
"We are very excited to bring the Magic Circle Festival for the first time ever to Finland," said promoter Hardi Loog. "We are going to have a fantastic festival, with Manowar headlining with their special Kings Of Metal 2014 anniversary show, plus more bands and lots of other entertainment for an unforgettable Metal experience!"
In their headlining anniversary show Manowar will perform the entire 'Kings Of Metal MMXIV' album, a brand new special version of their hit album, 'Kings Of Metal' that will be released in spring, along with a "best of" set of other immortal Metal hymns in a completely new stage production.
"We are calling all Finnish Manowarriors to get ready to join us for the biggest Metal show of 2014!" announced Manowar bassist Joey DeMaio. "And we are calling the Manowarriors from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, Germany, and from every Metal country in the world to get their asses to Helsinki next summer. If you haven't been to Finland before, this is the perfect opportunity! The Finnish warriors will show you how to REALLY drink, party and have a great time!"
Hostile have made a big impact with their debut album receiving rave reviews and new UK tour dates lined up for 2014.
Former Judas Priest axeman KK Downing produced the band's debut album, 'Eve Of Destruction', and is also producing the follow-up which is well underway.
KK also wrote a track on 'Eve Of Destruction', the only song he has ever written for anyone other than Judas Priest.
Hostile hooked up with top London booking agent Rod Macsween of I.T.B who went on to book the band for the Download Festival at the historical Donington Park venue, gaining excellent reviews such as 'KERRANG!' 'kkkk' review and also packing out the Gibson stage tent to which they went down a storm.
