Prophecy Fest announce three new bands

Prophecy Fest gladly announce three more bands for the Cave of Balve in 2024: Female fronted black metal outfit DYMNA LOTVA left their audience stunned with two memorable shows on the second stage last year. This time, the Belarusians will play on the main stage. BLAZING ETERNITY have been away for a long time, but this year the Danish metal stalwarts will return to Germany with the show in Balve. Last but never least, VALBORG had to cancel their last appearance due to conflicting obligations. This time the Germans are determined to detonate the cave with their hard hitting sonic attack.

Speaking of cancellation, the two US bands with a shared line-up TCHORNOBOG and AUREOLE sadly had to call off their shows this year. The reasons are medical issues of an essential member that will unfortunately take several months to be resolved. Hopefully, these two fascinating bands will be able to cross the Atlantic for a future edition.

Prophecy Fest comment: „First of all, our well wishes go out to Markov Soroka’s ill band member“, fest and label founder Martin Koller states. „We are of course sad that his acts cannot play, but the well-being of everybody involved with the festival always has highest priority. On the bright side, we are getting close to conclude our booking for the cave with Blazing Eternity, Dymna Lotva, and Valborg. We sincerely hope that you like these additions as much as we do. We will soon announce the bands for Thursday, so please watch this space.“
