ROCK OVER MUNICH is a brand new Hard Rock Festival in Germany! The first edition will be held on January 31st, 2009 at the Metropolis club in Munich. Performing on the show day will be the following five bands:
Swedish band TREAT was founded in 1984 and belongs to the Melodic Rock genre´s most loved bands. Their records are highly respected and the releases "Scratch And Bite", "The Pleasure Principle" and "Dreamhunter" as well are all-time faves by many. In 2008, TREAT are still going strong and currently recording a new studio album which will see the light of day in early 2009.
STAGE DOLLS from Norway belong into the same category as TREAT: outstanding Scandinavian Melodic Rock! This outfit has been around since 1983 and also released some true Melodic Rock gem´s such as the records "Stage Dolls" and "Commandos". Stage Dolls also are recording a new album right now, permanently are touring Norway and their appearance at Rock Over Munich will mark their first ever concert in Germany since 20 years!
These days, a nostalgic trip back to the 80s isn’t that unusual, especially when it comes to music. In 1988, the debut single of a then-unknown band became an overnight success. R5 was the name of the car. ‘Here I Am’ was the name of the song. DOMINOE was the name of the band! 2008 shows the Rock band from Munich very strong with the release of their new album "The Story Is Far From Told...".
M.ILL.ION from Gothenburg, Sweden, was formed in 1989 by bass player and song-writer B.J Laneby. Influences in the music include everything from KISS, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, DIO, Accept to Queen, the blues and The Beatles - all combined with the more heavy approach of the 2000’s. May 2008 saw the release of their current album "Chase Of The Thrill".
DARK SKY had been founded as a school band in the very early 80’s in the South German city of Rottweil. In between, the band has released four highly recommended German Hard Rock albums and been permanently performing live. Their latest record was released in June 2008 on AOR Heaven and is called "Empty Faces".
