These artists have been confirmed for Baroeg Open Air 2011.
Swedish death metal band Unleashed, headliner of the festival, was formed back in 1989 and is often compared to similar bands like Dismember, Entombed, Grave and Hypocrisy. Bands from the same country and generation, playing the same kind of music. With the recently released eleventh album 'Odalheim' Unleashed proves to be on top of their game.
|Kontrust||rock | metal|
Kontrust is a rising star in the rock and metal scene, best described as 'Guano Apes meets Rammstein'. The band's international breakthrough came after the release of their catchy hitsingle 'Bomba'. 3FM-DJ Eric Corton gave the single airplay on the Dutch radio. Kontrust convinces friend and foe on each festival and in each venue the band performs.
|Peter Pan Speedrock||speedrock|
Baroeg Open Air's promoters have already tried to book this band a few times before, but it's the first time now they succeeded: Peter Pan Speedrock will perform at BOA! Influenced by punk, hardrock, rockabilly and metal, this three-piece from Eindhoven invented their own style: speedrock. We're pretty sure their music will appeal to a lot of BOA-visitors.
|Melechesh||thrash | black|
While black / thrash metal band Melechesh was formed in Jerusalem, some of the current band / session members live in Rotterdam and play a 'home game' today. In 2010, singer / guitarist Ashmedi and his band members released an outstanding new album called 'The Epigenesis', which received positive critics worldwide.
|Karma To Burn||stoner|
For quite a while, this American three piece has been a stonerrock / 'desertrock' force to be reckoned with. Karma To Burn's music is influenced by genres like psychedelic rock, bluesrock, heay metal and doom metal. The characteristic 'swampy' gitaarsound can be compared with a similar band like Kyuss.
|Do Or Die||hardcore | metalcore|
Do Or Die has been around since 1999 en has become one of the most important hardcore / metalcore bands from the Benelux. The guys already shared the stage with bands like Hatebreed, Agnostic Front, Pro-Pain and Biohazard. Enthusiasm and playing ability go hand in hand, so expect an energetic show!
|Furyon||heavy metal | progressive hardrock|
Good bands are usually discovered quickly. After just one full length, Furyon is already called 'the next big thing in (hard)rock and metal' in their home country England. The album gets very positive reviews in the international press as well. While Furyon's music is a mixture of progressive rock, classic rock, hardrock and heavy metal, the band appeals to a wide audience.
|Honky||rock 'n roll | sleaze rock|
This three piece from Austin / Texas was founded by Butthole Surfers bassist Jeff Pinkus in 1996. Ever since, the band has played rock 'n roll / sleaze rock right from the heart. In the past, the band toured with Nashville Pussy, the Reverend Horton Heat, Fu Manchu and Down. At the moment, Honky crosses Europe with Karma To Burn and Peter Pan Speedrock. Sounds like: a sleazy version of ZZ Top!
