Last Minute Update
Last Minute Update!

Hello everyone we have some bad news and some good news:
The bad:
Khors unfortunately didn't get an answer from the Ukrainian Ministry of Culture until today despite a letter and several mails from us and the band. This means that in all likelihood they will not be able to perform and will hopefully be able to make up for their show in 2023. Stay strong our friends!
Nordic Raid will also not be able to perform because their drummer unfortunately has a positive Covid test result since last night. Again, like the other bands we had to cancel this year, we hope they can make up for their show in 2023. We wish a good recovery and hopefully a mild course!

The good ones:
Helheim slipped into the autograph session at short notice and will be at the Silence booth on Thursday from 20:00 to 20:15.
Thjodrörir replace Nordic Raid at incredibly short notice. Founded in 2016, the pagan metallers from Neumünster have released their first album "Solstitium" in 2020 and have already played several live shows.
Many thanks to the two Vikings and Valkyries for the ultra short-term replacement! They also take over the autograph session of Nordic Raid.

The Spirit @ Dark Troll
Today we can proudly announce the last band for this year's Dark Troll Festival. We hope that the line up will now remain so and no further bad news arrive.

Already in 2020 at our then freshly resurrected Fimbul Festival the band from Saarbrücken blew us away!
Now they return to the castle and also bring their new album "Of Clarity and Galactic Structures". Are you ready for a concentrated load of Black Death Metal of The Spirit - Band ?

Boötes Void @ Dark Troll
May is finally here and we are really looking forward to seeing you all again!

We still have a few announcements to make, since we had to fight with some things through the last two years. Today comes announcement number 1 in the form of the penultimate band for this year's Dark Troll.

We are happy that we could win a young up-and-coming band for us on such short notice. The recently released debut album has convinced us fully and so we are pleased that the 2019 founded band will present their occult black metal live at our stage.
We are up for Boötes Void and we hope you are too!

Absagen
Hey hey you trolls some of us had an awesome weekend at the Ragnarök Festival. How is it with you guys?

Unfortunately we come to you with not so great news today...
As some of you already suspected, Thrudvangar have to cancel their show at our festival as well, because they decided to break up the band. We are more than sad about this and hope to see one or two of our good friends again!

Unfortunately, Sojourner can't perform either for reasons neither we nor the band has any influence on.
Again, we were looking forward to a long-awaited reunion after the band played their second concert and first ever Germany concert with us in 2018.
We hope to get together again sometime in the future.

Thanks to the double postponement, our line up is always quite jumbled. But we promise you adequate replacements.

PS: In our Facebook event (https://www.facebook.com/events/598580883959117) there are always people offering their tickets, because they also can't participate anymore due to the postponements and just as many people who are still urgently looking for a ticket. So whoever is in need, take a look.
See you in a month \m/.

Tickets 2020
Since we keep getting the question if the tickets from 2020 are still valid, we would like to say here again clearly and publicly: "Yes, the tickets are valid, we had to postpone the festival twice due to the pandemic!". That's why the ticket says 2020 and not 2022.

Mosaic @ Dark Troll
Legends and traditions in a new look!

Today we are happy to present MOSAIC, the last of the four replacement bands.

The Thuringian band, founded in 2005, is a solo project by Valkenstijn, which is strongly influenced by regional customs, legends and traditions. Through this, old knowledge is to be presented and interpreted in its own way, in order to lift it back into the consciousness of the new world. With the new album "Heimatspuk" the folklorists return to their black metal roots and deliver a primal symbiosis of atmospheric metal, mystical soundscapes and traditional primal folk elements.

PS. At our beloved castle Mosaic plays in band line-up!

Nordic Raid @ Dark Troll
We are happy to announce the next replacement band.
The Northmen from Kiel have founded their band in 2014 and have released a demo and an album so far.
With their Viking Death Metal á la Amon Amarth, Nordic Raid know exactly how to heat up the crowd.
