Archival article

The Live After Death Festival was initiated as Metal Mania Open Air Festival as the first Slovene metal festival. It takes place annually at a local football field in Komen in the Kras region, which among other things is also known as a Slovene wine growing region. Since 2002 the festival has delivered numerous metal performers, including legendary American and Scandinavian head-liners. The festival displays numerous metal subgenres, such as trash, death, black, heavy/speed, power metal and grind.


The festival has a great role in promoting Slovene metal bands and gives them a chance to present themselves on a large stage alongside the foreign head-liners. It has hosted big metal names such as Dying Fetus, Entombed, Exodus, Impaled Nazarene, Pro-Pain, Rotten Sound and Slovene bands such as Dickless Tracy, Interceptor, Vulvathrone just to name a few. The festival was not realised three times, in the years of 2004, 2009 and 2010, but in 2011 it came back with a loud bang, or head-banging to be more precise. If you are a part of the metal subculture, do not miss the metal caravan in the mid of August in Komen. Camping for the visitors is free of charge.
