German heavy metal giants POWERWOLF have announced  their European „Wolfsnächte Tour 2018“. The wolves are celebrating their outstanding heavy metal masses across Europe starting in October, stopping in most major cities, and concluding November 17th at Saarlandhalle Saarbrücken.

Comments Matthew Greywolf of POWERWOLF: „It’s about time for the wolves to come back and open a new chapter of the metal mass over Europe! We can't wait for insane nights full of metal, energy and madness! See you all on the shows and let´s go wild together!“

Swedish melodic metal sensation AMARANTHE and Germany’s heavy/glam high flyers KISSIN‘ DYNAMITE will be joining in as special guests.

Says AMARANTHE‘s guitarist Olof Mörck: „We feel absolutely psyched to go out on the road with the mighty Powerwolf in the fall of 2018! This will be a very potent combination of different takes on powerful music, united by a vision of bringing a next-level, cutting edge show to stages all around Europe! This is something you do not want to miss out on, so prepare yourself as this giant steamroller of a tour violently descends upon a city near you!"

Adds KISSIN‘ DYNAMITE front man Hannes Braun: „We're more than happy to hit the stages with POWERWOLF and AMARANTHE in fall 2018!!! Meetings (and drinks) at several festivals turned into a friendship and this line up promises to be a real thriller! See you on the road!“

The wait is over! The symphonic, majestic, melodic and epic sounds of WINTERSUN finally reach Australia!!

Founded back in 2004 by front man Jari Mäenpää, Finnish epic metallers WINTERSUN released their outstanding, highly-acclaimed debut self titled album in the same year. With technicality, speed, precision and high melodic virtuosity, the band instantly made their mark worldwide. Fast forward to 2017 and WINTERSUN return with their 3rd studio album entitled 'The Forest Seasons', their most varied opus to date and cements their status as leaders and luminaries of modern melodic metal.

With this announcement of their first Australian tour, as expected, a massive air of excitement shall arise.

An early ticket purchase is a must!!!


ORPHEUS OMEGA, one of Melbourne's prime stock, have evolved over the years into a truly unique entity. Displaying aggressive and melodic guitar work, intricate and powerful drumming, chaotic keyboard work and a varied array of vocal stylings, Orpheus Omega have developed themselves as one of melodic death metal's most promising newcomers.


Perth's CLAIM THE THRONE rip apart folk metal with a merciless assault, delivering an extreme take on melodies that fans of pagan and melodeath alike have been raging for. This October Claim The Throne deliver their epic fourth full-length album 'ON DESOLATE PLAINS' with passion and ferocity – an epic slab of heavy folk-influenced melodic death metal that sees the band at the peak of their 10 year raid.


WINTERSUN with Orpheus Omega and Claim The Throne performing at:

Nov 2nd - Melbourne, Max Watt's

Nov 3rd - Sydney, Max Watt's

Nov 4th - Brisbane, Max Watt's
