READING 3 CLUB, TEL AVIV PORT
Finnish pagan metal act MOONSORROW and Greek dark metal act ROTTING CHRIST will play a special show together in Tel Aviv December 20th.
It’s the first time of MOONSORROW to play Israel after years of requests from the loyal local metal fans.
For ROTTING CHRIST Israel is a "second home", played there in the years of 1994, 1998, 2000 and 2010 the band established a solid strong fanbase.
Both bands together represents a quality form of extreme sophisticated unique form of metal music as reflected in a rich catalogue of albums over the years.
Stated promoter Yishai Sweartz:
"it’s a pleasure and honor to bring to Tel Aviv 2 of my favorite metal bands, both bands are proof that quality music is the answer and the form that stands the test of time, Moonsorrow is a band I wanted to bring for many many years as they took the Nordic metal to new dimensions and the best thing I heard in the Pagan/Folk style since the golden days of Bathory, so I am glad and proud to have the opportunity to bring them over and complete the "Big Five" Finnish bands played in Israel by me: Moonsorrow, Finntroll, Turisas, Ensiferum and Korpiklaani.
Rotting Christ are my blood brothers in arms, being there with them since the 1994 show through the 1998, 2000, and 2010 shows in Israel, the band are like a family here, we are always glad to bring them over and with the last 3 records I came to realize they attached a new generation of fans, some of them were not even born when we crushed the stage in Tel Aviv with "Thy Mighty Contract" in 1994.
I am sure this will be a night to remember and I’m proud to support those 2 fantastic bands.
