BEASTIVAL managed to accomplish something unique: THE BIG TEUTONIC 4! KREATOR, SODOM, DESTRUCTION & TANKARD on one evening, on one stage – something that has never happened despite the plus 25 year-career of every single band involved!

The band comments:
The waiting is finally over… We are very pleased to reveal the headliner of Niflheim Festival II – it is nobody less than the folk metallers ENSIFERUM from Finland. The festival line-up is now complete.
Vreid will also release their new, yet untitled album in February 2013. Therefore we have arranged a special performance. The band will present the new album with an exclusive release show only at Niflheim Festival.
We are looking forward to 2nd March 2013, when the Finnish horde will hit the stage of LKA-Longhorn in Stuttgart.

"Germany is like a second home to us. After all, this is the country of Richard Wagner, the father of all heavy metal and the German fans are unique in their devotion for true metal! We can't wait to be back!" said Joey DeMaio. "We are calling all our warriors in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg and from all over the world to join us and party louder than hell"!
