METALFEST 2021 confirmes another russian metal band – CATHARSIS!



The 11th edition of the METALFEST Open Air festival, which will take place on a new date from 3rd to 6th June 2021 in the beautiful Lochotín amphitheater in PILSEN, has grown by one full-playing day and the list of confirmed bands will be a bit longer! Today we can add to the list of confirmed bands the second representative from Russia - symphonic heavy / power metal CATHARSIS. This group from Moscow is one of the leaders of Russian metal scene. For the past 24 years of their way, they proved the demand of such music by selling out thousands of albums' copies and doing headliner tours around Russia and abroad. They shared the stage with such metal icons like NIGHTWISH, BLIND GUARDIAN, U.D.O., RAGE, or EDGUY. Newest eighth full-length studio album "Destiny's Mirror" (2019), which was recorded with the symphony orchestra (the first ever studio experiment of this kind for Russian metal scene) in short time was called „The Best Russian metal-release“ by lots of critics and journalists. However, the tour for the new album and all the plans for 2020 were interrupted by a pandemic situation, so the band began to prepare for the magnificent celebration of their 25th anniversary in 2021! At METALFEST 2021 in PILSEN, we will definitely celebrate with them!
