Three merciless Swiss metal bands will ensure a devilishly hot Good Friday at Z7! This co-headline show will be led by the groove-thrashers and Z7 regulars GurD, as well as the "newcomers" Magma Ocean (formerly Molotov Train). As a special guest, there will be a hefty dose of old school death metal from Requiem.
Our "house band" GurD has been around for 30 years! Rising from the ashes of power-thrashers Poltergeist in 1994, the band has evolved into a mix of thrash and groove. In the autumn of 2022, the Basel stalwart led by singer/guitarist V.O. Pulver released a new album after eight years. Metal Hammer wrote: "With 'Hallucinations,' GurD skillfully returns to their roots." We look forward to the return of V.O., Pat, Franky, and Steve with a fat greatest hits program and current tracks from the album "Hallucinations."
"4.5 billion years ago, the Earth was covered by a sea of lava. A single glowing fireball. This is exactly how the music of Magma Ocean is - glowing hot, explosive, and all-consuming." Four out of the five musicians were recently raging through the Swiss metal scene as Molotov Train. At the end of April, the band announced on their social media platforms that they were moving on from the old name and continuing as Magma Ocean with a new singer. The band, with scene veterans from bands like Shakra, Stallion, Maxxwell, or Battalion, has gained a new frontman with the English powerhouse Harry Ballantyne. The new songs "Solitude" and "Price Of Failure" provide a first, promising taste of the infernal sounds of this powerhouse.
