The Pilgrimage of Blaakyum in 30 days

Only one month to go before Blaakyum becomes set on its pilgrimage to the Holy Land of Metal: Wacken Open Air 2015, the world’s biggest Heavy Metal festival, now in its 26th year!!! This year’s line-up features giants such as Dark Tranquility, At The Gates, Black Label Society, Annihilator, Death Angel just to name few. Check the festival website and the awesome 140 bands performing there here.

We are proud and honoured to be the first ever band to represent the entire Middle East in the W: O: A: Metal Battle. We will be performing at the battle on Wednesday July 29 at 12:40pm at the W:E:T: stage.  Join us in making history at Wacken and showing that a Metal scene can exist strong and hard in the Middle East!

We Shall Rise \m/

The Eastern Man Marches Into The Holy Land of Wacken

The Gods of Heavy Metal had it that Blaakyum will represent the Middle East in the Wacken Open Air Festival Metal Battle. For the first time, Blaakyum will officially represent the Middle East. We had already done that back in 2007 when we were the only Middle East band in the Global Battle Of the Bands (GBOB) in London, but this time it is official, and that is a duty we will try to honour as best we can. The March of the Eastern Man has begun. May the gods be with us.

It is a badge of honour to have Blaakyum’s name on the W:O:A website alongside giants such as Annihilator, Black Label Society, At The Gates, Angra, Amorphis, Dark Tranquillity, Obituary, Death Angel, Judas Priest, Savatage, Opeth, Nuclear Assault, My Dying Bride, Queensryche, Sepultura, Sabaton and many more....

Blaakyum will be performing in Wacken Open Air on the 29th of July at the W:E:T stage at 12:40 PM (Noon)
p.s. A lot has happened in the past month, after a great event in which we won the Lebanese heat of the W:O:A Metal Battle, things went a bit dodgy and the Middle East finals in Cairo were cancelled. read all about it here.
