meraluna2019The line-up for Europe’s largest Black Scene gathering is complete: FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM are added to those already confirmed. Alongside headliners ASP, VNV NATION and WITHIN TEMPTATION, the British Goth Rock legends and other new additions will take to the stage. On the 10th and 11th of August, a total of almost 40 bands will perform at the Hildesheim-Drispenstedt venue.

There are only a few bands that laden their music so meaningfully quite like FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM. Formed around mastermind Carl McCoy their music surrounds the listener with elements of different mythologies. These are interwoven into dark, sometimes grim but poetic sounds with McCoy’s punchy vocals closely intertwined with the guitar and bass lines. Even after more than 35 years the bands influence on the genre can be seen and visitors to M’era Luna will be able to see for themselves that with this line up they have lost none of their live energy or spirit.

LACRIMOSA are also known to distil their own sound from a variety of influences, just as JOACHIM WITT and DEATHSTARS have shaped the aesthetic of the scene for years - they will all prove this again this year at M’era Luna. The driving rhythms and traditional melodies of CORVUS CORAX are in good company and are contrasted by the EBM sounds of DIE KRUPPS, and electronic emphasis coming from DE/VISION and AGONOIZE. Also on board are SPETSNAZ, CENTHRON, FAELDER, TERROLOCAUST, EMPATHY TEST, FORMALIN, EWIGHEIM, FEAR OF DOMINATION, SCARLET THORN and YELLOW LAZARUS. This completes the line-up for the M’era Luna 2019. Further program items such as readings and workshops will be announced at a later date.
