The mission of THE DEAD DAISIES is to create good old 70's rock style, bring together some of the best musicians in the world and most importantly play great rock music live. Their sound is soulful, with strong vocals, bluesy riffs, powerful choruses and melodies, and they play it all live perfectly! Since the release of their first self-titled album in 2013, they have gone from strength to strength. They have released six studio albums, one live and one cover album, and their army of fans is still growing! The current line-up of the band is: John Corabi - vocals (Motley Crue/The Scream), David Lowy - guitar (Red Phoenix), Doug Aldrich - guitar (Whitesnake/Dio), Brian Tichy - drums (OzzyOsbourne/Foreigner) and Michael Devin - bass (Whitesnake).

DEATHSTARS will finally be back with their latest album 'Everything Destroys You' (out May 5th). After more than eight years, it's the highly anticipated return with everything DEATHSTARS stands for: adrenaline, bombast, sex and glam! Torment, destruction, dystopia, glamour, darkness and black humor all belong to their diverse musical spectrum. Get ready for a highly energetic rock'n'roll show that will get your blood pumping again in its charming and unmistakable way.

PRIEST is a dark band that throws you into the neon lights of 80s sci-fi mixed with a gothic soundscape. Since their first single in 2017, PRIEST have garnered millions of streams, an ever-growing fan base and worldwide acclaim for works such as 'New Flesh' or 'Cyberhead'. Modern cyber-punk rules and PRIEST are currently creating new compositions. The winter mood and gloom for at the WINTER "Masters" will provide them with the best backdrop. Be a part of their original music show!

BLACK MIRRORS - Their story began only 5 years ago, but they already have released two albums. "Look Into Black Mirror" (2018) and last year's new release "Tomorrow Will Be Without Us", on which you can clearly hear how versatile the band really is and how singer Marcella Di Troia is completely different from almost all other singers. Let yourself be surprised and captivated by this unique band.

LIV SIN is a metal band founded in 2016 by Liv Jagrell, after her previous band Sister Sin decided to quit in 2015. After 13 years of touring Europe and the USA with bands such as Slayer, King Diamond, Motörhead, Doro, Arch Enemy, In This Moment, W.A.S.P. or U.D.O. Liv took all of her charismatic energy from Sister Sin and channeled it into her new project, which she called LIV SIN. She created a band with a heavier and more modern sound based on massive riffs and catchy melodies. LIV SIN is metal with a touch of Arch Enemy and the Gothenburg sound and modern metal like Parkway Drive and Atreyu. Liv is coming to present her third album "KaliYuga" this year at the WINTER "Masters" in ZLÍN!

They don't like metal much in Lebanon, and it wasn't easy at all to start a band there and make it in the world. Freedom of speech is severely lacking here and socio-political upheavals are the order of the day. However, through their dedication and especially hard work, PHENOMY has won the admiration of the metal community, both in their home country and around the world. The band, inspired by bands such as Metallica, Pantera or In Flames, creates modern and elaborate groove-thrash metal in which they depict the reality of the situation around them. In their work, of course, we can hear themes of the Middle East, nihilism, chaos, but also a desire for a freer and more creative way of expression and thinking. Last year, they released their third, very well-reviewed and well-received record "Syndicate Of Pain". It is a concept album about an asylum run by Dr Anton Shuman, a mad scientist who manipulates criminals and patients labeled insane in his facility. The album later reveals that these patients are not being treated, but they are all a part of a larger and much darker project.

We will announce another confirmed bands soon.
