UNNECESSARY EVIL. "The only band in town that adds inches to your dick" (Gord), finally is back on the road again! Formed in 2009 by the two high-school friends Adam Grant and Eugene Parkomenko, who both were working desirable construction jobs at that time and cranking the likes of Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple as loud as possible to get through the days on site while gettin' heavily motivated and influenced by Vancouver’s Heavy Rock scene, “The Wiz” was born. "Their performance is impressive, the sound is massive, the vocals are colossal and the guitar leads are seriously great. Or as CVLT Nation states it: "If you are a Doom Metal fan, [this band] will put you in an ecstatic state of mind."
Following a true DIY aesthetic, Black Wizard has independently released two full length LPs and a 7” single, selling over 5000 copies worldwide. In 2015, Black Wizard signed with Listenable records (France), released their third LP titled 'New Waste' and this February is about to release the new, long-awaited full-length 'Living Oblivion'.
Through the course of seven years having toured extensively across North America and Europe, i.a. with Volbeat and Killswitch Engage as well as Brant Bjork and ROYAL THUNDER, and having shared the stage with the likes of Sleep, Uncle Acid and the deadbeats, RED FANG, Corrosion Of Conformity, Mos Generator, KYLESA, Weedeater, Black Mountain and Yob, we are proud to serve you these hard rollin' Heavy Metal dudes - ready to bring the thunder to Jägerklause Berlin!

FOLLOWING THE VOICE. Somewhere between sheer, apocalyptic heaviness and precise, mind-altering riffing exists the world of Vancouver-based and in 2009 formed Rock juggernaut Anciients! These fellows have no time to spare, no fillers, no hesitation - they are just pushing and pulling and banging those heads from start to finish - taking you on an unfamiliar trip while forging crushing Heavy Metal evocative of veterans High On Fire and contemporary sonic craftsmen Opeth. The outstanding guitarist and vocalist duo Kenneth Paul Cook and Chris Dyck, who create distinct, powerful and brought-to-perfection vocal duels between grim growling and clean singing, are flanked by Aaron "Boon" Gustafson on bass and drummer Mikey Hannay, constituting a mighty powerhouse and barrage of brilliant, crunchy riffs driven by a relentlessly pounding, shattering, quite complex yet heavily driving rhythm section.
With the first release of their 7" EP 'Snakebeard' (2011) alone, the Canadians were invited to join High on Fire, GOATWHORE and Boris on stages. More touring and festival shows followed the release of the highly praised debut 'Heart of Oak' (2013), which already evoked high promises - containing the warm flow, solid earthiness and beautifully dark undertones of whisky matured in ancient oak casks, within an intoxicating song-writing. But not enough, Aniients have remarkably honed their composition skills and moved further into their very own musical territory - with their sophomore second LP 'Voice of the Void' (2016) exponentially having boosted the tasty formula unique to this band - raising their game with mind-melting, frenetic guitar work in every shade and colour and a more explosive percussive attack. This is the archetype of a modern, progressive heavy band. And an evil beast, we are proud to serve to the black mass!
