Latest News 7th December 2017 - Hard Rock Hell NWOBHM Festival 2017
Rekuiem performed on main stage at the Hard Rock Hell NWOBHM Festival held at the O2 Sheffield this weekend to a packed out audience. The 2 day indoor festival event is in its 2nd year and attracts NWOBHM fans from around the globe. The band went down a storm and made many new friends from the UK, USA, Sweden, Germany, and no doubt many other countries. Rekuiem had a fantastic slot with only 4 bands higher on the billing and took full advantage launching straight into 'Wildfire' quickly followed by fans favourite 'Nightmare'. Other highlight tracks performed were 'Werewolf', Blackdeath, and the Rekuiem cult classic 'Angel of Sin' amongst several others. With Rekuiem having now shared the stage with legendary NWOBHM bands such as Diamond Head, Raven, Grim Reaper, and Lionheart, the hope is to carry this momentum forward into next year with more festival performances in the UK and across Europe and to finally release the long awaited new album 'Raise The Dead' which will feature the newly reformed classic Time Will Tell line up of Steve Slater, Karl Wilcox, Paul Parry, and Gordon Denny. Check out some of the great pics below of the bands performance and check back soon for more pics and news. Catch you all soon and have a great Christmas and New Year.
