The following bands were already set to play at the metal festival in Eindhoven, the Netherlands: Sons Of Apollo, Annihilator, Leprous, I Am Morbid and Havok. Tickets for Dynamo Metal Fest are on sale now via Ticketmaster.nl.

The Swedish metal band Ghost will headline Dynamo Metal Fest 2018. The band was formed in 2008 and features front man Papa Emeritus III and musicians who are known as the Nameless Ghouls. The debut album Opus Eponymous (2010) received a nomination for a Grammy in the category ‘Best Hard Rock’ record. The following records Infestissumam (2013) and Meloria (2015) were also well received. The band members of Ghost mimic the Roman Catholic Church but have reversed the image to worship Satan instead of the Holy Trinity. The anonymous musicians represent fire, water, wind, earth and ether, with band mascotte/demonic priest Papa Emeritus to lead the metal mass.

The American industrial metal formation Ministry was founded in 1981 by Al Jourgensen. The band has ever since been known as one of the pioneers of the genre. In the early 90’ies, the band had its international breakthrough with the album Psalm 69 and especially with the song “Jesus Built My Hotrod”. The line-up of Ministry changed frequently throughout the years and the musicians had a hard time after the passing of guitarist Mike Scaccia. However, Jourgensen always found his way back to the music. A new record is planned for 2018, called AMERIKKKANT. The first single “Antifa”, has already been released.

The American thrash metal band Overkill has also been confirmed for Dynamo Metal Fest 2018. The energetic music of Overkill will have everyone in a mosh pit or in a headbang craze in no time! The five musicians, including vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth en bass player D.D. Verni who have been in the band since its inception, know how to make a crowd going with their razor sharp vocals and groovy rhythms, especially on the latest record The Grinding Wheel (2017).

The following bands have been confirmed for the festival so far: Ghost, Ministry, Sons Of Apollo, Overkill, Annihilator, Leprous, I Am Morbid and Havok. One more name will be added to the line-up: the opener of the festival.
