Gaerea to headline Outeiro Metal Fest 2019
After a very successful first edition, Outeiro Metal Fest returns to Outeiro Seco – a village situated around Chaves -, to once again deliver good doses of high octane, highly crushing extreme metal. Setting the standards a bit higher this time, the festival confirms the first of its headliners and its none other than the cryptic Portuguese black metallers Gaerea. A known name both in and outside of their home country, Gaerea are one of the most promising bands today, having risen through the ranks of the underground metal scene thanks to their incredible debut full-length, Unsettling Whispers, released on June 22nd via Transcending Obscurity Records, a record that breaks the self-imposed barriers of black metal, giving place to a dense and suffocating atmosphere filled with crushing doom passages and intense sludge riffs. It is but a taste of great things to come, both for Gaerea and Outeiro Metal Fest. More bands will announced in the coming weeks.
Outeiro Metal Fest takes place in Outeiro Seco, on September 13th-14th. As mentioned above, the festival is free-entry. There will also be a warm-up on the day prior to the festival. More information will be revealed soon.
