As far as folk metal festivals go, Heathen Crusade Fest is by far the best North America will ever see and its upcoming roster just got even better. Hail Of The Weekers Winterhymn, Celtic thrash band Battlesoul and Canadian acoustic folk metal act SIG:AR:TYR are confirmed for Heathen Crusade 2013, which will take place on March 9 in St. Paul, MN. As if those three bands aren’t reason enough to attend the festival, Einherjer — yes, THAT Einherjer — will make their first live appearance in over a decade at this highly anticipated festival. Here’s the current lineup so far:
Vesperia (formerly Bolero)
Additional confirmations are soon to come, so stay tuned!
