Fundamentals of back than student bands were laid in Jacksonville, FL in the summer of 1964! The band received attention of the whole world in the 70’s thanks to hits such as "Free Bird" and "Sweet Home Alabama". The song "Free Bird" occupies the third place of the Guitar World magazine list of the world’ best guitar solos. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.

Historically the first appearance of the world's most famous southern rock band will take place in Pilsen on May 1st, 2015, thanks to Dr. Tomas Paclik and football club FC Viktoria Pilsen, who came up with this idea, they fund it and give it to the city of Pilsen as a gift. This presentation is part of Pilsen - European Capital of Culture 2015 project and will launch the Festival of Freedom commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Pilsen by the U.S. Army. It will be attended by American veterans of WW2. The concert venue is currently matter of negotiations - we evaluate the number of sites of Pilsen and it will be announced during this autumn.

We are proud to announce that today's the most popular metal band NIGHTWISH confirmed its participation at the festival Masters of Rock 2015! In these days Finnish bunch of storytellers is finishing up with recording of new, yet unnamed album which should be out next spring. The entire world of rock and metal awaits the release of this album and it could be said that it is one of the most anticipated records today. The reason is simple - it will be the band's first album with the new voice of the singer Floor Jansen. Symphonic metal fans will be pleased after three and a half years - after "Imaginaerum" album release. The band is working on its enterprise in studio in the middle of Finnish forests and it will be already the eighth CD of band which frontman, main composer and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen founded in 1996. "We are very happy that the Masters of Rock is our first festival confirmed for next year. We always like to play there, looking forward to a great Czech audience! We are also looking forward to the festival unique facilities, meeting with friends. We love sitting in festival backstage surrounded by containers - by other bands' dressing rooms" Tuomas says.
NIGHTWISH with new permanent vocalist Floor Jansen certainly gained something just hard to find. Young, beautiful, attractive and yet experienced and excellent singer. Floor Jansen (b. 1981) - singer and songwriter - became a member of symphonic metal band AFTER FOREVER when she was 16! She created five studio records with them. Then with a gang of progressive metallers REVAMP another two albums. Floor jumped into onto fast express train in October 2012 in Seattle, when she filled in for ill vocalist during Imaginaerum World Tour. Since then she successfully continues the journey forward. The whole rock world was pleasantly surprised last summer when NIGHTWISH have announced that Floor officially became a member of their team. Next year we can look forward to her soprano in conjunction with music of NIGHTWISH which has countless of dedicated fans in the Czech Republic.
Floor is certainly one of the new inspirations for the main NIGHTWISH composer Tuomas. And so the whole music world is waiting how new eighth studio album will sound. All band members spent three months of this summer in camp in the middle of the beautiful Finnish wilderness. In a wooden cabin they created a temporary studio and composed a new song there. NIGHTWISH regularly shares their feelings about this unique and beautiful environment and about process of composing songs with their fans. The band publishes short films from the recording on their pages, they do not contain any music from the upcoming album though. In the last trailer you can find out what Troy Donockley (uilleann pipes, tin whistle, backing vocals) says about environment there: “It’s hard to describe what it’s like - the peace, the stillness, the geology, the biology of the place. It is just teeming, swirling with life... and there’s a glorious lake. It’s wonderous.” And Floor Jansen adds: “I am very sensitive for environment, don’t put me in the middle of the city in a super-shiny fantastic studio and keep me inspired for weeks. A place like this does. I love nature and I love calm. We can work for hours and then you can relax, truly relax. That I think is super important to keep the vibe going.” From all this it is felt that the new NIGHTWISH album is being created in a unique environment and work accompanies an amazing harmony among all musicians.
Masters of Rock fans can be proud. NIGHTWISH chosen this festival as their first one and Theky will perform there not only the old hits, but mainly showcasing their new expected album! You'll be among the first in Europe! NIGHTWISH are:
Floor Jansen – lead vocals
Tuomas Holopainen – keyboards, lead vocals
Marco Hietala – bass, vocals
Emppu Vuorinen – guitars
Troy Donockley – uilleann pipes, tin whistle, backing vocals
Kai Hahto - drums (for ill Jukka Nevalainen)

Today's symphonic metal should sound like DELAIN... say a good many of fans of the genre, who need crushing guitars, strong keys, but also the catchy melodies and choruses. All this packed into a symphonic bombast. The Masters of Rock will welcome Dutch outfit DELAIN founded twelve years ago by former member of WITHIN TEMPTATION Martijn Westerholt and cute Charlotte Wessels (* 1987). The group has out a new, powerful album "The Human Contradiction" (with appearance of Marco Hietala from NIGHTWISH or Alissa White-Gluz of ARCH ENEMY) since this spring, which confirms the band is on top its strenght.
Show of DELAIN during the 13th festival in Vizovice will be full of high-quality metal, therefore practice:
„Army of Dolls“ (2014), „Get the Devil Out of Me“ (2012),
„The Gathering“ (2006).

It started last summer during chit-chat between guitarist Roland Grapow (MASTERPLAN, ex-HELLOWEEN) and bassist Mario Lochert (EMERGENCY GATE, ex-VISIONS OF ATLANTIS). Subject of their conversation was desire for a change. A few weeks later there was a new international metal band SERIOUS BLACK, whose members are experienced veterans of the genre. Next to Roland and Mario the band consists of another guitarist Dominik Sebastian (EDENBRIDGE), drummer Thomen Stauch (ex-BLIND GUARDIAN, COLDSEED), then keyboardist - Czech native - Jan Vacik (ex-DREAMSCAPE) and vocalist Urban breed (TRAIL OF MURDER, ex-BLOODBOUND, TAD MOROSE).
These six musicians who share a love for metal music are currently working on their debut album. It should be out early 2015 and let’s expect anything but outstanding modern hard rock / power metal. After all judge for yourself by brief but apt trailer. SERIOUS BLACK will present part of their work on tour with HAMMERFALL (also in Prague, February 6th, 2015), but during the Masters of Rock festival they will enjoy a full concert set. Do not miss it and purchase your festival ticket from here.
