Metal: Hellsinger at Gamescom 2022 – Big concert with Trivium, Arch Enemy announced

Who will perform at the concert? For the Metal: Hellsinger Soundtrack, development studio The Outsiders has gathered virtually everything that has a reputation for metal. The music lives up to the name of the game, but gets even better when you can enjoy thick riffs and explosive beats live and in color. So The Outsiders and publisher Funcom planned their own gig at Gamescom 2022 with an all-star cast of musicians who contributed to the Metal: Hellsinger soundtrack. The composition of the concert looks like this:

  • Matt Heafy (Trivium)
  • Alissa White-Gluz (Arch enemy)
  • Mikael Stanne (Dark Peace)
  • Dennis Lyxzen (Denied / INVSN)
  • James Dorton (beginner in the Black Crown)

Show participants can expect a meeting of the greatest musicians of the metal genre. But great musicians also demand a big enough concert, and Funcom doesn’t want to be stingy in this regard. In the trailer for the show, the publisher promises “the biggest gig in Gamescom history.” Many may not have had an event like this on the Gamescom 2022 hope list.

When and where will the concert take place? The concert should start on Thursday, August 25, 2022 at the Gamescom fairgrounds. A starting shot will be fired at 19:00. It is not known how long the performances will last. However, all the musicians will perform the original Metal: Hellsinger songs. People unable to attend the concert on site also have the option to watch live broadcasts of the event free of charge. It is available on the official website of the game.
