Centennial Hall conquered! Asymmetry 5.0 festival takes over new space in Wrocław. We’re announcing the date, place and first headliners.

Asymmetry Festival will take place from the 1st to the 4th of May 2013. First bands that confirmed their presence are: Mayhem and Amenra. The negotiations regarding the place where the event will be hosted ended up with a success. Asymmetry 5.0 will be held within the space of one of the most recognizable flagships of the city – listed as a part of the UNESCO World Heritage – Centennial Hall.

Great headliner of the festival will be Norwegian band Mayhem, which is described as the most classic and precursor of black metal. It was found in 1984 by the guitarist and leader Aarseth. The band went through a lot of changes over the years, it even fell apart for 2 years after Aarseth’s death. After the band was reactivated, they managed to continue in their characteristic, recognizable style. Mayhem released 4 albums, but the most important is the first one – „De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” with the well known song „Freezing Moon”.

Second headliner of Asymmetry will be Belgian, post-hardcore band Amenra. The producers of the festival decided to invite them once again to Wrocław as that was so much expected by the audience. The band was found in 1999. Amenra’s music is a puzzle of screaming vocals, low sounds, strong drums and rough riffs. Their strength and magic is their live performance itself though. They perfectly mix psychodelics with smoother parts. They played live gigs with Red Sparowes, The Locust, Knut and Pelican.
