DECAPITATED sind mit Vader und Behemoth wohl die bekanntesten Metal-Exporteure Polens. Die verschiedensten musikalischen Ecken, seien sie technischer oder grooviger Natur, haben DECAPITATED in ihrer Bandgeschichte erkundet – und das mehr als erfolgreich.
Kaum eine Band zeigt so viel Durchhaltevermögen, steckt heftigste Tiefschläge weg und liefert dann wieder so brutal ab. Das ist ganz und gar nicht kopflos, was da abgeht und das Herz ist eben auch dabei. Ihr könnt euch beim SUMMER BREEZE Open Air 2017 davon überzeugen. Wir werden die Polen mit offenen Armen empfangen und sind jetzt schon bereit für die totale Vollbedienung. Gefräst, geplättet, geschleudert, egal welche Veredelung ihr gerne hättet – DECAPITATED bringen die Werkzeuge dafür mit. Wir sehen uns in Dinkelsbühl!

 Guys, this is gonna be soooo A.W.E.S.O.M.E.! For the first time ever we will be able to welcome a thrash band which has always been a little different, and has exactly therefore been loved by fans and press alike since their first album. SACRED REICH are coming to SUMMER BREEZE!
On top form again after a prolonged hiatus, the Phoenix, Arizona gang has proven again and again in the last few years that they are far from finished. Why should they? They easily got over drummer Dave McClain's defection to Machine Head and have made every festival pit boil with their numerous hits. So it's a happy coincidence that the guys will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of their fabled debut 'Ignorance' in 2017, because we can celebrate a huge double birthday party in Dinkelsbühl. But hey, despite the greatness of 'Ignorance', we hope that they don't omit the killer tunes from 'Surf Nicaragua' and 'The American Way'. We are so looking forward to SACRED REICH's 30th anniversary show in Dinkelsbühl! We hope you are, too!

 Cult! Join us in welcoming the father of the death metal genre: possessed for the first time in the summer breeze open air to be our guest!
With Your 1984 s demo "death metal" possessed no doubt have in musical history. Even though the scholars argue until today, whether it be death / mantas or possessed this charming genre have given its name, the fact is that possessed as one of the forefathers of this extreme metal style to be mentioned! Hardly a bond between Stockholm and Tampa was not on the debut album " SEVEN CHURCHES ' had a lasting effect! Old Rascals (such as the authors of these rows) runs it in the but-thousandth time hear from ' the exorcist ' or ' Fallen Angel ' - oh, actually, the complete debut album - a goosebumps showers after the other on the back and the place is ready The absolute destruction. Certainly like the since 1983 in changing occupations active band no longer be known by everyone, but it is precisely those metalheads was the appearance of this cult squad very, finally, or possessed. Jeff Becerra a legend in Essex on the stage. Nothing more and nothing less! And everybody say, " arise from the dead and attack from the grave, the killing won't stop until first light..."


Cult! Please join us in welcoming the godfathers of the death metal genre, POSSESSED, who will be our guests at SUMMER BREEZE Open Air for the very first time!
With their 1984 demo 'Death Metal' POSSESSED undoubtedly wrote music history. Even though specialists still argue whether death / Mantas or POSSESSED gave this charming genre its name, it is a fact that POSSESSED were among the pioneers of this extreme style of metal. No band, from Tampa to Stockholm, can deny the lasting influence of their über-debut 'Seven Churches'. Old headbangers (like the author of this text) still get a series of cold shivers when listening to songs like 'The Exorcist' or 'Fallen Angel' – just make that the whole album – even for the one thousandth time, and their homes get close to total destruction. Perhaps nowadays not everyone is familiar with the band, who have been active in different line-ups since 1983, but especially those people are urged to check out this cult band. At the end of the day, Jeff Becerra and POSSESSED are no less than a true legend. And now join me: “Arise from the dead and attack from the grave, the killing won't stop until first light...”
