11-09-2009  -  Metalpics 7th anniversary!

Today, Metalpics is celebrating its 7th anniversary. We'd like to thank you for your visits and your support over the last seven years!
Especially, we'd like to say thanks for the support during 2009, which compared to the last years has been a rather quiet one. Nevertheless, we have covered a few summer festivals so now you can find pictures of Metal Dayz (Switzerland), Greenfield (Switzerland), Tuska (Finland), TLY Festival (Finland) and Summer Breeze (Germany) in the Metalpics gallery.

Hope to see you at some gigs soon!

A report including other pictures taken by Shelley J. at the festival will be published soon at Pitfire.net.

01-05-2009  -  Preview to the festival season!

As every spring, we're putting up a festival schedule for Metalpics. This year, we are concentrating on our favourite events. As every summer since the very start of Metalpics, we're joining Tuska and Summer Breeze. Two festivals with unique atmospheres and great line-ups. New on the schedule is Metal Dayz, a festival taking place at the Swiss metal mecca Z7.

That's not all yet tho! We have quite something cooking in the Metalpics kitchen, so stay on the line!
