Christmas Metal Symphony stands for a symbiosis of world-famous metal stars at the microphone,who appear together onstage with a 32-piece orchestra and the band “Metal Force 1”, especially compiled for this event, to present their biggest hits.
For Rock and Metal fans, the singers will be like an early Christmas present: as well as the current NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen, ACCEPT-original voice Udo Dirkschneider (currently U.D.O), HAMMERFALL- front man Joacim Cans, ANTHRAX-original Joey Belladonna, Chuck Billy, the voice of the California Cult-Trasher TESTAMENT and the legendary original singer from HELLOWEEN, Michael Kiske will also take part.
All six performers will present their greatest hits within the framework of the Christmas Metal Symphony, so that concertgoers can rejoice in an evening filled with timeless metal anthems, which altogether have written music history.
“It was important to us to find a broad cross section of singers who have shaped the different types of Heavy Metal and who are regarded as icons,” said the organizer about the choice of contributing singers. At this time,work is in progress on the score–the common language, that the Heavy-Metal hymns and classical music will speak at the end.
As musical director of the elaborate project, the Dutchman Joost van den Broek (formerly AFTER FOREVER) takes charge – he is the interface between the thunderous Heavy-Metal rhythm and the orchestra, and is responsible for the arrangements sounding harmonious together.
